Finding Armando has been life changing for our precious son. He suddenly developed severe vocal tics after many years of head jerking. His confidence and school life were hugely affected. I tried to find a UK therapist but they were few and far between. Armando immediately connected with my son using language and dialogue that he responded well to. Within the first session Armando had taught him to use a competing response for his aggressive vocal tic. (I actually couldn’t believe it!) Over the 9 or so sessions Armando worked with him on all his tics. My son is now able to lead the life he deserves. He has control over his tics and his confidence is back. Armando is like family! He really cares and wants the very best for the child. He is the best support anyone could have! We are in a great place right now but knowing Armando is there if we need him in the future is a great reassurance. Do not hesitate to contact Armando.
