What Clients said about working Cheesiah:

Parent #1 (Father of 3 boys, ages 10, 13, 15)My relationship with my teenage son has been very tense and with lots of conflict over device use and school work. Each time I tried to talk to him we ended up in heated argument and I had to call the police once as he was getting aggressive and violent. When I met Cheesiah, I took her coaching advice and did what she recommended. I can’t be happier to say that my relationship with my son has improved considerably. I am so thankful for the coaching I received from Cheesiah. She really saved my relationship with my son.

Parent#2 (Mother of 2, aged 12 and 14) When my 14-year-old daughter was going through a really rough patch in school with her peers and teachers, I didn’t know how to support her. She went from a cheerful girl to become very withdrawn, sad, crying a lot and refused to go to school. I reached out to Cheesiah and she gave me specific ways and things I could do and say to support my girl with her feelings. It gave me a lot of confidence and assurance to know what I need to do when my daughter was having meltdowns or being very down and negative. I thank Cheesiah for her coaching and allowed me to walk through that very difficult time with my daughter and made our relationship even better after.

Parent#3 (Single mother of 1, aged 16)

Dear Cheesiah, thanks for your help. My girl shared with me two days ago, and our relationship improves. She even initiated to pray with me. Think she’s quite happy. She came to my room and hugged me for the past two mornings too, said good morning to me. Thanks for your coaching and support. I really appreciate it. I have to learn to let go. Must thank you…Think there’s a breakthrough now. A breakthrough am longing for years.

Parent#4 (Mother of 1, aged 7)Cheesiah’s parenting approach is so different from the performance and results-driven approach that I knew. But as I began to implement bits and pieces of her parenting ideas, I began to see the change in my daughter. She was more receptive to my teaching and become more affectionate with me. She also started to become more responsible for her schoolwork without me reminding her! She was self-motivated! I am now a more ‘chill’ parent, enjoying parenting much more while leaving my kids to do her own work! I get more ‘me-time’ too.

Parent#5 (Mother of 4, aged 9, 12, 14, 16)I connected with Cheesiah when my son was having regular nightmares. He would wake up in sweat and tears but he could not recall what the dream was about, except that it was scary and he was really afraid. Trying to convince him that it was not real did not work and at times it made him angry and he would yelled at me. Cheesiah coached me to pay attention to his fears and anxieties and not to downplay them but to accept them. I am so glad to learn how to calm my son down.

Parent#6 (Mother of 3, aged 14, 16 & 22)Thank you so much for giving of your time to listen and share your awesome parenting perspectives with me. You’re so safe to be with; your listening makes me feel so understood and your sharing of wisdom gives so much clarity each time we talk!

Parent#7 (Mother of 3, aged 16, 18, 20)

Cheesiah’s approach to parenting has been inspirational and transformative! I have been a stay-at-home mom and home-schooled my 3 children. I spend a lot of time with my children and we have been a close knitted family unit. However, I was emotionally intense and didn’t know that it would affect my children negatively. Through working with Cheesiah, I learnt that I am responsible for my own emotions and I began to work on my emotional triggers. I am at an emotionally much healthier space now and I feel better, calmer, and more at peace. I have also been able to support my children without getting triggered and becoming reactive. I feel free. It has made me a better person, a better mom, and a better wife too!

Parent#8 (Mother of 2, aged 5 & 8)Cheesiah thank you so much for yesterday’s session. I think I’m filling up my boy’s emotional bucket so even giving consequence is just a breeze for me this morning. I’m so glad for once I’m being enlightened!
