"Our daughter is left-handed and was struggling with her handwriting, to the point that it was affecting her confidence at school. Caroline has such a kind, reassuring approach. She created a personalised treatment plan that completely changed our attitude to handwriting. The exercises she taught us have really helped strengthen our daughter's hands and improve her dexterity. She is actively enjoying the process and has become so much more confident as she improves."
