Hi, my name is Sue Simmons!
First of all, I’ve been exactly where you are…
Feeling alone, frustrated and hopeless. My son was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome in 2001. I literally spent years walking on eggshells, and letting him run the show … I just didn’t know any other way. It tore me to pieces, and left me – a smart and dedicated Mom -- feeling like I was a failure. And trust me, I came dangerously close to crashing.
I was fortunate to find a parent-based program that gave ME the skills to turn things around. My son was happier when I learned to set clear limits. He COULD learn to think and problem solve, and become more resilient! I went on to become a certified Relationship Development Intervention (RDI®) Consultant to teach these skills (and much, much more) to struggling families.
I became a Certified Professional Coach, and then a Certified Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT tapping) practitioner, so I could reduce my own stress, and my clients’. (Tapping is like emotional acupuncture without the needles! When we tap on specific points on our face and upper body, and talk about what’s stressing us, it sends a calming signal to the “fight or flight” part of your brain.) My training is leading edge, and all about empowering parents.
