“Julie-Anne Richards (Julie-AnneRichards.com) presented to staff in the spring. Her insights and expertise in supporting children experiencing stress and anxiety are excellent. It was an enlightening and practical presentation that we thought would be as invaluable for many of our families as it was for us. We were lucky enough to be able to book her to present tailored for parents and caregivers.”– Murray Harris
