“After working with Elevate my daughter has been more able to share her feelings with me. Her communication skills and coping mechanisms have greatly improved.”
“From my perspective, as a parent, I had got to the stage where I was at a loss on how to help my teenage daughter. We had seen psychiatrists, CBT therapists, they had all done something, but our daughter became very tired of talking. And I think she, in the end, felt that she was being talked at.
Ramita has provided Ellie with a platform to make her own judgments based on sound, advice, and information, and made her realize that there is a lot to be positive about and that there are things to work upon. It’s all done in such a positive way that my daughter hasn’t felt that she’s being patronized or talked at. She’s being treated like an equal, and as a result has developed quite a close bond with Ramita, which I think has been transformational.
She’s turned from a girl who was becoming agoraphobic and not wanting to be seen by anybody to a girl who has gone out to meet friends and come to the supermarket which sounds insignificant, but it really has been a major change. Her confidence is growing, and I know it’s still early days, but at least we’re heading in the right direction and there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”
“Dear Ramita Thank you for enveloping our daughter with your warmth, kindness, and wisdom. I know she will reflect on her Elevate journey for the rest of her life.
You have given my daughter so many tools to help her (and I). Every week she has left you feeling encouraged and inspired to take on the world. I’m so grateful for the Elevate programme but most of all for your wisdom and guidance which has been invaluable.
I can honestly say, my daughter and I use a component of Elevate each and every day if not more frequently. So many important messages, ways to change our thinking, and support there. You’re a gem”
“Clara loved Ramita’s super-power sessions and the lessons have certainly stuck – she has tools now to help her with confidence and resilience. She says the best thing about Ramita was “ her friendliness – she encouraged me to be my better self – she’s helped me be calm and not to let stress interfere with my sleep and my mental health.”
“I benefitted highly from your teaching. Not only did you help me to understand what I was learning better, but you helped to bring my confidence out”
“Ramita’s relationship with our daughter has always been warm and nurturing. She has consistently demonstrated a real understanding of challenges faced by children.”
“With Ramita’s support and guidance, our child made real progress academically but more importantly to us, confidence and resilience noticeably developed.”
“Ramita became more than just a teacher to her, she became a mentor and a role model.”
“I will always be grateful that Ramita made space to teach my child and provided such a rich and varied learning experieince, in the kindest of environments.”
“Ramita has this the unique gift of being able to connect with young people and make each and everyone feel listened to and important. Through Elevate, our daughter has had the amazing opportunity to connect with an adult who isn’t a family member to talk about her worries and wonders. This was absolutely critical as we juggled constant uncertainty and changes through various stages of Covid lockdowns. She is much more socially confident, and it has been a joy to watch her progress week over week.”
“Ramita’s Elevate programme is fantastic. Not only is she one of the kindest and warmest women you will ever meet, but the content is also set out in an incredibly age-appropriate way which made it very accessible and engaging to my daughter. Each “Superpower” was so relevant and explained in a fun and relevant way. My daughter seems to have grown in confidence since starting the programme. Thank you so much Ramita!”
“There are certain things that you just can’t learn at school but are so fundamental to becoming a fully rounded human being. That is where Ramita and the amazing Elevate program she has developed comes in. I didn’t feel my daughter Chloe particularly lacked self-esteem or confidence but was keen to iron out some issues relating to feeling easily embarrassed and suffering from sleep anxiety. In just six sessions Chloe has benefitted from having her resilience heightened, a much better understanding of how empathy and emotional literacy can propel her intelligence and success, and why her inherent kindness should be recognized and celebrated. Overall, it has been a real confidence boost. Harnessing her teaching and learning support experience, Ramita has a wonderful manner with children and exudes positive energy.”
“The booklets and examples of girls and women with interesting stories are really great. Even though many failed at first, they kept going and Elevate has taught me to not be scared to fail and to keep believing in myself.”
“Ramita has a loving, caring, calming, and understanding nature. She has incredible patience and makes learning for my child fun and engaging, helping to fill in the gaps he was struggling with. She also recommended a great list of books that would help ignite some passion for reading which our child found so hard. Learning from a compassionate understanding teacher is the best way to bring your child’s potential to the surface.”
“I loved chatting with Ramita each week. She was very friendly and each superpower we went through was really fun. It has made me feel good about myself”
