Quote Marks

The Psychologist at Purple House suggested various interventions for our son which were implemented at home and at school. Following these changes, there has been a miraculous turnaround in his well-being. I can’t thank Purple House enough – our lives have been transformed!

Parent of young child

The Psychologist at Purple House was amazing. I felt safe with her from the very first session. She was supportive and professional and with her help I have been able to begin the journey back to truly living my life. She has changed my life in a very real way and I’m so proud of myself for making it as far as I did with her help. Thank you!
