Diana, 42, Atlanta (USA):

Sjan gave me, my children and sister a speed reading course within 3 sessions on Zoom. It was awesome. I got so much from this. Even the youngest of 10 years old was eager to learn and hear everything Sjan told us. The training made a huge difference for our family. We highly recommend it to everyone!"

Kim, 35 years old, lives in London:

Sjan gave many practical handles that provided me the courage I needed to take the steps in my work which were needed. I work much better now and after six sessions we were done. Terrific coach and great tools!"

Anna, 46 years old, lives in the Netherlands:

After coping with dyslexia for over 40 years I read the first couple of chapters of their book. It touched me deeply as here was finally someone who fully understood and could explain the why and how of how my brain worked. Everything in this book is explained in simple terms, step by step with clear explanations. New ways of working are given which work for my dyslexic brain. Not only do they teach you new ways of doing things but they look at and help you lose the fear of failure which many of us dyslexics have aquired over the years. Living in the Netherlands I have been very lucky to work in person with these two amazing ladies. After struggling for 7 years to learn Dutch it now feels possible. I would recommend this book and their counseling for anyone of any age who is dyslexic."
