Testimonials from Clients

"Jan gave me great advice at a time when I was exhausted and demoralized. Her support was invaluable. She gave me concrete things to try that fit with my values and a welcome reminder to dig deeper beyond behaviours. My relationship with my daughter is better for it. The next time I need a fresh perspective, I will not hesitate to seek her counsel." - Brandeen

"I am doing so much better since we talked and I read all the material you suggested. I'm sure you know you touch a whole lot of lives, but I wanted to let you know you touched mine and thus have touched my son's. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." - J.R.

"I feel very fortunate to have found Jan. Right from the start, she validated my concerns and shared personal experiences from her own parenting journey that helped me feel less alone and more supported. Jan has a peaceful way about her, and I leave our conversations with a sense of gentle empowerment. She has helped me to understand that my intuitive feelings were not wrong, as I have been told by so many around me. Jan also follows up via email with additional suggestions and resources that further enhance the topics we covered.

There are really no words to describe how much better I feel about mothering my daughter after consulting with Jan, but our daily smiles and laughter are very telling." - K.B.

"Jan is truly wonderful. She is just how she instructs us to be with our children - present, attentive and understanding. She was prepared and able to quickly process our situation and she confidently and directly provided excellent feedback and suggestions without judgment. I highly recommend not only Jan but her website and many resources that she makes available. I am so thankful that I found the site and Jan." - C. Harris

"I cannot thank you enough for what you do. Talking to you helped me and my family so much. Your suggestions and information were so helpful. I feel much better overall and so much more confident about unschooling with our two boys. I am sure I will be contacting you in the future. My husband and I continue to reread your book The Natural Child." - V.B.
