“Excellent experience! Our 10 year old son used to suffer from severe performance anxiety and with Dr. Vieira's professional help and the techniques our son learned while in therapy he's now much calmer and confident about his skills. He's so much happier post-treatment and feels good in his skin. We're very grateful for Dr. Vieira's continuous support and care!“

    Dr. Vieira helped our 12 year old daughter when she was feeling down and had lost hope in friendships. After a few months seeing her every week, she is much more positive and open about making new friends again, something we couldn't imagine possible back then!

    Dr. Vieira is very patient, extremely caring, and professional. She had an immediate understanding of our family situation and our child's needs. She helped our son through a stressful period of transition which made him very anxious. To any parent with a child who could benefit from psychological support, we highly recommend Dr. Vieira.

    Our 12 year old daughter received professional help from Dr. Vieira when her performance anxiety started to severely affect her quality of life. After treatment with Dr. Vieira she's now in a much better place and can manage performance related situations with much greater confidence than ever before. Dr. Vieira offers CBT treatment in a creative and age-appropriate way which encouraged our daughter immensely in her motivation to stay on track with therapy and for it to have led to a successful outcome. I can't thank Dr. Vieira enough for helping our daughter overcome her performance anxiety and feel confident about herself in previously fearful situations.

    I was never very comfortable around strangers and speaking in front of people I don't know. After a few sessions with Dr. Madeleine it's become easier to meet people and even make some new friends.

    My OCD used to make me late to school every day, but with Dr. Madeleine's help I am now on time! I spend less time getting ready in the morning and have learnt to beat Mr. OCD Bully and wash my hands less than before. I'm so happy!

    It was really good to talk to Dr. Madeleine. She always made me feel welcome and comfortable so it was easier to talk about my problems that made me feel very sad and stressed. I also liked creating drawings, making sculptures out of clay, and playing with puppets. I am now so much happier than before!
