We ordered your program for our 9-year-old daughter. I am happy to report that your program literally changed her life. Last year we moved from a little rural town in the Midwest to a bustling community in California. We also experienced a family tragedy in our extended family. Fast-forward to December and it seemed to all come out at once. She was expressing many irrational thoughts. It scared me so much! I found your program online. My husband and I agreed to try it while bringing our daughter’s teacher into the loop. She also referred us to the school psychologist who met with her one time. She was ½ way through Turnaround when she talked to the school psych. The counselor was so impressed with her progress and her ability to talk about her anxiety openly that she asked our daughter if she would be willing to share her story with other children.
Today our daughter is doing so great, and so am I! We learned so much about what triggers anxiety and why we feel “yucky feelings”. She physically looks happier…her body language and face are so much lighter. I truly believed that my daughter has gained life-long skills through your program. We cannot thank you enough for sharing your expertise in helping kids with anxiety. California
I’m grateful for the program and have already recommended it to friends and a therapist. Kari and Jeff
I heard about the program from friends who used it for their child. My two boys who were so frustrated about everything around them. We moved to the USA a year and a half ago and they have been so brave, so tough about moving and relocating but I understood that on the inside they were upside down. New language, new friends, new schools, new house, new, new, new….
I started the Turnaround program with them in the same room but after two CDs I decided to work with them separately. They identified their anxieties and they were not the same. My 12 year old thought the program was childish and he struggled through the whole program. He said he would never do it if I hadn’t promised them a reward. Maybe its connected to that my 12 year old didn’t think he had any problems to solve. My 10 year old also thought it was a bit childish but he could listen more with an open mind.
Well we did one CD a week and did some of the journal work and discussed the content after each CD. I told them I also learned a lot about myself and we could also see other parts in people around us. We ended the program just before our vacation in July and they got a kneeboard as a gift after we were done.
I really would like to say to you, Thank You! I’m so grateful that I found this program and that I could end the negative spiral that we had started. The program helped me to put words for myself of what was going on and it also gave the boys words for what was happening within them. We got a vocabulary that we could use when situations occurred that needed to be addressed. My 10 year old stopped his anger, yelling and his outbursts nearly at once. Even before we came to the chill CD. My 12 year old got most help when we came to the chill CD. I would say that this has helped us the most. How to chill down when everything is overwhelming. But the whole program was a fantastic journey to do with them. I recommend it to other moms when we speak about our children. I have also met with the counselor and told her about the program. Thank you very much and good luck with your future work! Marie, NC
