Motivated Minds has worked brilliantly with our students at Deanes School, helping with a range of personal issues from self-esteem to boosting social skills and attendance. Their very 'human' approach to our youngsters has made it feel like they have always worked here! The feedback from students has been so positive! Thanks very much.
