Felicity Success Story

Happy New Year to all and I hope that 2014 is a fantastic year for you!

My 2013 ended on a high note, I was privileged to have met Felicity. So often you look at a situation and think to yourself – this is a bad or impossible situation…..

Whenever I work with young children they have a way of surprising, inspiring and showing me how well they are able to adapt to tough situations without them even realising it.
