Press Reviews

  • Nicki Rosser, Clinical Lead TRC Bath

    Never more urgently needed, Betsy confronts this invisible but insidious issue. Offering hope and recovery, this essential read addresses, compassionately and practically, the profound need in every human heart to be seen and known.
  • Mary Glasgow CEO, Children 1st

    Betsy's warm, wise book comes from deep knowledge of what really matters for children. Emotional neglect can be scary territory for parents and practitioners to explore and this book will support courageous conversations without shame, helping children to be seen, heard and loved. i recommend this book to everyone involved in supporting families to recover strong loving relationships.
  • Clare Davies, adoptive parent of young siblings

    Highly recommend to any adoptive parents, foster carers, guardians, teachers and any adult with children in their care. Reading this book was like a big hug, I didn't feel so alone anymore, I could relate and so much of it made sense to me. It gave me a greater understanding, knowledge and reminder of what is really going on for my children along with encouraging tools on how to move forward and make such positive change, which is possible. With life overwhelming anyway, I really love the fact this book really is a 'simple' read and easy to absorb. Betsy breaks it all down perfectly into various chapters which makes it easy to jump back into at point to refer, remind and refresh myself to be the best we can be for our children.
