Jonny, aged 10
Jonny has always enjoyed seeing you because you encouraged, understood and believed in him. What more could a struggling child want? He has been able to experience success with you that was not possible in the classroom.
Your sunny optimism has made the work he did with you fun and exciting. I think you have shown him he can learn, that he has lots to offer and not to be ashamed of his struggles. That is a tremendous gift that will allow him to step forward.
I can’t thank you enough, not only for Johnny’s success but also for helping me. You made me feel there was hope for him when no-one else seemed to be reaching out to him.
When you started working with Johnny, I felt such a huge relief that at last I had someone who understood him. Your faith and connection with Johnny have been absolutely crucial to him.
Cody, aged 5
That’s so sad – end of an era. Can’t thank you enough for all you have done for him.
You’ll be missed by him and me – such an integral part of our life for the last 2 1/2 years – thank you for everything.
A Montessori Nursery School
Belinda Seeff-Gabriel has worked with several children referred to her from Stanmore Montessori.
Each child received an individual programme designed especially for that child. The results were always amazing.
She is truly an excellent, gifted speech and language therapist who I would be delighted to recommend.
Laya, aged 7 yrs
Hannah has worked closely with Laya over the past couple of months. Her warm, friendly and professional approach have all led to amazing results. Through interactive games and play Laya has achieved so much; her speech has massively improved and Hannah has offered to be at the end of the phone if ever we need more support.
Lexi, aged 5
I cannot express my gratitude enough for all you have done for Lexi. It was a pleasure not a chore to come to your sessions every week and I know Lexi looked forward to them as you made it fun! Thank you so much for all your efforts and for working so closely with the school.
A Post-graduate University Student
I am very grateful for the faith you showed in me, as for most of it I had very little in myself. Without your recognition of whatever it was that you saw in me and all the gentle encouragement that you gave me, I suspect my way to being a SLT would have been much bumpier.
I am immensely lucky that I have had you to see me through all my nonsense and hold me account, as at these times I doubted myself and thought of your coaxing. I would not be the SLT I am today had it not been for the chance I had to see things from your perspective. Whenever there was a chance of things getting a bit too fluffy I would think of you. For me you’ll always be a winner and I am so happy I got to borrow you for a while!
Paul, aged 4 yrs
Bringing our son Paul to Belinda was the best decision we ever made. She was able to expertly pin- point what his issues were and chart out a plan of action best suited for him. Paul loved coming to her sessions and really blossomed under her care.
We found Belinda to be very driven and she put a lot of thought into planning his lessons. She had a ‘learn through play’ approach which worked superbly for him. Paul’s improvement has been dramatic and the surge of confidence it has brought about, is just unbeliable.
Paul is on top of his class, able to express himself clearly, engages in all aspects of school life and is a happy little boy. Having Belinda’s expert help in correcting his speech and language problems were a big factor in his ability to do so and for that, we are eternally grateful.
Jonah, aged 7years
Hannah’s therapy for our son went well beyond our expectations. Before he started speech therapy, he’d have trouble with a number of sounds and some people would struggle to understand what he was saying. Now that he’s completed his therapy, he is clear in his speech, and we are no longer asked for a translation! We would highly recommend Hannah to any parent considering help for their child.
Carlo, aged 12 yrs
Belinda has worked weekly with my son for nearly 6 years now and I have no hesitation in recommending her as a Therapist. Her passion, tenacity, adaptability and professionalism are all outstanding. My son has greatly benefitted from his sessions with Belinda and will no doubt continue to do so.
Ben, aged 8
You were a G-d-send for our son. Your careful, targeted and importantly – fun – work with Ben boosted his skills, learning and confidence. Your regular updates kept us informed of his progress, as well as the exciting activities you were doing together. Ben is now thriving in school.
Thank you very, very much for your wonderful work with him.
