Roy is courteous and helpful. Clear and confident in approach, providing effective and timely support. Able to translate policy and strategy into concrete actions. A keen advocate of team wellbeing.

Fantastic visit from Roy to our Beaver Colony. Roy was engaging with the young people and the flow of the evening was well delivered. The Beavers stayed focused throughout the evening and left feeling relaxed and with some new techniques to try at home. Highly recommended.

The session resulted in a very warm feeling and a great appreciation for the team I am part of here. The activities you talked us through were fun, educational, and very beneficial to our well-being. I definitely feel like you gave us a lot in just an hour.  Thank you for the confidence, affirmations, and time.

When our previous website editor had to give up through ill-health, Roy didn’t hesitate to step into the role. Within days, he had freshened up our website, an important part of our public profile. You can see the initial results at oxford-leiden.org.uk – a project which is ongoing. We are delighted with Roy’s efforts and look forward to a long and successful partnership.

From the outset, [Roy] was enthusiastic, welcoming, confident, and knowledgeable. Overall, a very kind person. I would recommend Roy. ‘

I found out about private sessions from the website. It was easy to contact Roy, who was responsive.

When Roy arrived he provided an excellent introduction and presented himself well. He came across as extremely confident and enthusiastic. He was a very nice person and good at talking to my son on the right level without any pressure.

I would recommend Relax Kids and Roy to others.

I learnt about Relax Kids via word of mouth. As a Guide Leader I wanted a unique experience for our Rainbows. This was very reasonably priced, well pitched to the age group, and filled our standard unit meeting.

We booked a session for eight girls and sadly only two turned up. Roy was unfazed, the session was still delivered very professionally, and the two girls had a great (and relaxing!) time.

We’ll definitely be asking you to visit again. The girls and leaders had a great time and we all learnt something. I knew you were good but I would highly recommend you.

” It was very easy to register for the Happiness classes with Roy, which I found out about via the Relax Kids Oxford Facebook page.

The classes have helped my child cope better with his anxiety and stress levels, improved his confidence and co-operation, as well as listening skills, and he is better able to calm himself down.

Roy has been kind and calm, very approachable and easy to get along with. He is really good at taking time to listen and take an interest in the children. I would recommend Relax Kids and Roy to others. The classes work well. No need for improvement. “

” Very easy to register for the Happiness classes advertised on the Relax Kids Oxford Facebook page.

As a result of the classes, my child has improved confidence in expressing their feelings, and shows a greater concern for other people. They find it easier to calm themself down too.

Roy made us feel very welcome and was quite confident and enthusiastic. He is a calm and kind coach and I would recommend him and Relax Kids to others. “
