“Soila has delivered a Triple P Group course on behalf of Brilliant Parents in Autumn 2017.  Soila, by nature has a very calm and approachable demeanour, which the parents immediately took to i.  She maintained her numbers throughout the course, which is testimony to the relationship she had with the parents.  From a commissioning point of view, Soila was keen to deliver the course with all the Brilliant Parent nuisances and to our high standards.  I would not hesitate to commission Soila again.” – Meave Darroux founder of Brilliant Parents

Soila has been a great support to me during this very difficult time.  She was understanding, empathetic and professional.  What impressed me the most was Soila’s detailed follow-up from our calls where she took the time and effort to write out scripts for me to use with my children.  It was great to know I had a trusted professional to advise and guide me and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Soila.  –  Helen, London

Soila is a real ‘Earth Mother’ whose energy of caring and nurturing permeates her work and nourishes everyone she meets…She has great empathy and intuitive wisdom and gathers extraordinary people to her. I am proud to have worked with Soila and I highly recommend her where you need the gift of feminine wisdom and intuitive energy. – Rachel Elnaugh

Soila is very passionate about helping families come through divorce “in one piece”. She is one of the few people I know who walks her talk when it comes to supporting people through difficult challenges and trauma. She will help you gain back control believing in yourself and others once again. Authentic, compassionate, deeply generous, and a spirit that optimises everything she teaches. Soila naturally lifts up everyone around her. – Griselda

This is an excellent course, and very insightful as it’s coming from someone who has been through a divorce… There are some expressions that I’ve been using that I didn’t realise could have an impact of my child’s behaviour. As I say, an excellent course which I know I’ll be referring to often. – Alexandra

When I read one of Soila’s articles for the first time, I realised her work was different: a competent and knowledgeable approach, yet simple and direct… Soila combines a sound knowledge of such delicate matters together with appropriate support techniques for parents and children in these circumstances. Soila demonstrates with her every day work she is one of the few professionals in the UK who does acknowledge and understands children’s issues associated with divorce… I would certainly recommend divorced parents who need guidance for their children’s sake to get acquainted with Soila’s work, read her books, visit her blog, attend her course or talk to her. – A Parent, London

As a mother currently going through divorce, this course gave me key insights on how to best support my children and be alert to some of the emotions that may be going through. Easy, concise and clear, this course has been a blessing. Thank you, Soila. – Shannon

“Thank you for your care, love and advise….” – Sylvia, London

“Soila helped me immensely when I was having trouble in my marriage. In our first session, she immediately put me at ease. One thing she said that i’ll never forget is “which ever way it goes you’ll be fine.” She helped me draw out my own feelings about the situation and what I wanted to do. She also helped me recognise how my children were dealing with what was happening. I came out of our session so much more confident that everything was going to be ok.

Soila is a consummate professional and has that rare quality that immediately makes you trust her completely. I would whole heartedly advise you to get in contact if you find yourself in a similar situation.” – Andrea, London

“Thank you so much for everything, I feel so great, thanks for the many pats on my back 😀 I really needed that reassurance, and I enjoyed our session so much, thank you so very much… I feel so uplifted, thanks to you, and also knowing, you have seen many woman in the same situation, and reassuring me, I am doing fine, this is just what I need….,” – Caroline, Switzerland

Soila, you have such an approachable manner, clients will feel safe and at ease with you. Possibly due to your previous professional experience, you have no problem developing rapport quickly and can pace your questioning to the client’s needs. You show empathy and warmth and are able to assess their capacity for mediation well. – Sue Tilley, National Family Mediation Trainer
