“Martine presented at our ‘Grandparents as Primary Carers’ Group. She presented on her blog ‘The Modern Parent”. This group meets monthly to share experiences as Grandparents who are the primary carers of their grandchildren, to receive relevant information that may assist their parenting issues and to offer support to each other. Martine was Professional and approachable in her demeanour and provided the group with much valuable information. She provided the group with information and advice concerning modern parenting and shared with the group through her professional training as a teacher and counsellor and through her everyday experiences as a mother of 5. I have no hesitation in recommending Martine for any similar presentations”.

“Martine I cannot thank you enough for all the work you put in to help Tim* and ultimately myself and my family. Your no no-nonsense approach and empathic nature combined to provide just the right person to help us. I know how much Tim respected you and as a result we have seen great changes in both his behaviour and attitude. The school too has noticed and advised us of his improvements. Thanks again, we are so grateful”.
We really appreciate you coming to our school to enlighten us with all your fabulous info!
I have received very positive feedback not just from parents, but our teachers too!
Everybody was highly impressed with your advice, professionalism and engagement
and we would love to see you again!!
