"Thank you to Alicia for delivering such a practical and insightful session for our employee wellbeing programme”

Liz Cope, Stephenson Harwood

"As a parent of teenagers and a Clinical Psychologist, can I say how helpful, calming, acknowledging and positive I just found your webinar, thank you”

Diana, Parent at City Parents Talk

"It was a fantastic talk … I have sat in many, many talks on wellbeing.  This was by far the best talk we have ever had on this topic and I’m most grateful."

Sally Parra – Head of The Speaker Programme / Wellbeing Team Latymer Upper School

“I learned some insightful strategies which I have put into action with my two young teenagers to huge effect. It would not be overstating the impact of the talk to say that within 24 hours we have had a complete turnaround“

Jane Warren, Parent

“As always, thank you Alicia!  I feel very fortunate that Guildford High School has a relationship with you as for every parent that has already or will come to hear you talk - your wisdom, experience and reassurance is appreciated and we come away feeling empowered to parent our children that little bit better!”

Amanda Whybro | Head of ASPIRE | Acting Head of Sports Performance Guildford High School

"Thank you for putting us on the right path, we are very grateful and I hope you have enjoyed hearing how you contributed to creating such a wonderful person."

Katie, Parent

“Alicia's exercises and real life examples are powerful tools in equipping parents with the skills upon which supportive, positive relationships can be achieved.”

Dr S K Agnew, Consultant Clinical Psychologist

“I hadn’t met (Alicia Drummond) before and she was astonishingly good. So much so, that what I really wanted was a hologram of her that I could bring out and put on the kitchen table in time of need, to say everything in just the right way for it to land well with the younger members of the family.”

C Welch, Parent

“Alicia’s warm tone and wealth of counselling experience, combine to offer invaluable step by step advice to coping with children’s challenges in a way that raises their resilience and self-esteem in a constructive and compassionate way.”

Nicola Owen, BCs (Hons), Dip Couns., MBACP, Therapist

"I’ve just joined your club while looking for some support in dealing with challenging relationship issues with my 13-year old and am really relieved, at this point, to discover your wealth of expertise and resources.”

Katrina, Parent

“If you want to be reassured that you’re not alone with the trials and tribulations of teenagers, Alicia will do it. A no-nonsense, positive approach – refreshingly human!”

A Bouthby, Parent

“Implementing the techniques was very easy and it truly made a difference to our family life in a very short period of time. Try it, it is well worth it!”

O Browning, Parent

"Alicia combines up-to-date and thought-provoking information with hands-on advice and practical tips on everything one needs to know about this age group. Parents left greatly encouraged and inspired. We already have a waiting list for the next workshop.”

Susannah Deverill, Bryanston Parents Association

“Brilliant – has opened my eyes to so many different tools to create much better family time with my children. Wonderful strategies to set my children up to succeed, as well as myself.”

K Eastman, Parent

“All parents should do this course before launching themselves into their teenager's lives. It's invaluable and you leave with tactics to help create a happy, informed home life with skills to deal with the problems that inevitably come our way.”

H Edwards, Parent

"As a Dad of two fantastic and feisty boys (ages 13 and nearly 12), I learnt a great deal about how to tackle their current emotions and to provide the life coaching that they need from me. I now feel much more prepared for what to expect from them as they embrace becoming bonafide teenagers. Fantastic morning!”

R Gambetta, Parent

“Anyone who can engage a roomful of tired teachers last thing on a Friday afternoon and have them staying behind afterwards to chat of their own free will is doing something terribly important... and doing it very right.”

Philip Stapleton, Headmaster, West Buckland School

“Just a quick note to thank you for another great teen talk last night. I always come away having picked up so many tips that I can use with the children and thinking about the way you approach situations."

Jo, Parent

"Firstly a big thank you for your very inspiring and informative workshop last week at St John’s. It has certainly given me some valuable tips and the confidence to use them!”

Kim Hunt, Parent

“This was my second workshop with Alicia as I wanted my husband to attend too. These sessions are so useful and unbeatable when it comes to arming us with strategies to deal with our two teens and our pre-teen. It is so reassuring that we aren’t alone in our battles and nice to come away with a positive attitude towards the privilege of raising teenagers! Thank you very much!”

Eva Olsson, Parent

“Alicia is great because she imparts her knowledge in such a relaxed way and uses her own family as examples. Her honesty was very welcome and entertaining.”

K Pickett, Parent

“Thank you very much for the wonderful workshop today. I really found it helpful! I only wish my husband could’ve been there to hear all the tips too.”

Meredith Shaw, Parent

“The skills you learn are such a useful and rewarding way to help and guide ones children through the ups and downs of childhood.”

J Thompson, Parent

“Teen Tips came to our school and wow what a difference from other parenting advisers!”

“A wide range of easy to remember nuggets of information. Practical and relevant situations discussed.”
