Rosie and I met when our daughters were in 3rd grade. She was the friend I’d turn to when I needed someone to listen or there was a situation I wasn’t sure how to handle. With four of her own children, (and a nursing background), she had answers. Rosie’s pragmatic advice was always supportive and reassuring, and her humor reminded me to laugh at myself when I need it most!

Practical, useful advice. Very helpful.

I contacted Rosie to get help with my 3 year old granddaughter who was testing all the boundaries I’d set and driving me to distraction, leaving me feeling frustrated and annoyed. Rosie was brilliant- she listened attentively while we discussed the problems I was having, then gave me lots of very clear practical suggestions and scripts to use. I immediately felt a lot calmer and back in control. This has made a huge difference to my life and on my granddaughter’s behavior. I can’t thank you enough Rosie!

Rosie has given me invaluable advice.
I adopted a 1 year baby girl and while this has been a truely amazing experience, it was also challenging at times. Rosie talked me through how and when to discuss the adoption with my daughter. She also recommended certain children’s books to read to her which told some lovely stories about adopted kids. Some of these stories have become real family favourites (the "Red Thread," in particular) and really helped my daughter understand the adoption in an easy, natural and fun way.
Rosie has been invaluable.
Would highly recommend.
