After a month of working with Simone, he seemed to make giant leaps forward.
ADHD & Behavioral Issue
"Simone has a loving and compassionate nature that brings a peacefulness and calm to her work. I enjoyed watching her work with my children and found the time we spent with her to be restorative. While I have only known Simone a short time the "Anat Baniel Method for children with special needs" seems to be the perfect culmination to her years of study, her work, and her personal practice.
She worked with two of our children. The oldest child has a working diagnosis of ADHD and has had many behavioral problems. He has been improving greatly over the last several years, but after a month of working with Simone seemed to make giant leaps forward. He struggled with starting and completing school assignments throughout this year. After only 2 weeks of working with Simone he was able to start his work and turn it in earlier than the majority of his classmates. He has also started practicing the violin and has been practicing in front of us rather than behind a closed door in his bedroom. He has been able to handle criticism better and tackle projects with more maturity. The confidence in his being and his work is a pleasant change.
Our younger son has a diagnosis of PDDNOS ( Autism spectrum), and is full of anxiety. As well as anxiety he never seemed to understand his body and how it was moving in space. He has been struggling with behavior issues as well, and has been unable to focus on as well as tackle school work. After just a few weeks of working with Simone he has been able to function much better in a regular classroom. His reading was already improving, but after working with Simone he is now able to focus on words and sound them out much more easily. He also seems to have a better understanding of his body and is more capable of organizing his movements. His anxiety is still prominent, but he has been able to go to his room on his own without an escort.
It was a pleasure working with Simone. The children looked forward to their lessons with Simone and were excited to see her on a regular basis. I highly recommend Simone and her lessons to anyone struggling with the special needs of their children."

"My daughter had problems in math. She was refusing to even listen to simple directions to do her math homework. Every day she hated math and was not listening in class. After Simone “turned on her learning switch”, she started to succeed in math. Her accuracy in math was amazing. Lattice multiplication and long division became easy for her."

"Simone is very intuitive and a good listener. This combined with her body work knowledge made for a very pleasant experience. Her method is accurate and delicate. I was in awe how much my acute pain diminished after just one session and completely went away after two sessions."

Since my sessions with Simone, I have decreased my medication intake and my headaches are fewer are farther between.
"I have suffered from migraine headaches since I was seven years old. From that time, I have tried everything imaginable to alleviate the severe pain I suffer from them - medication, massage, acupuncture, you name it, I've tried it! When I first came to Simone, I had headaches for a month straight and was taking 1800 mg of Ibuprofen a day and other medications to try and alleviate my headaches. Sometimes the medications worked, sometimes they did not. After my first session, I noticed a remarkable change in my headaches. They decreased significantly and I stopped taking the Ibuprofen every day. Since my sessions with Simone, I have decreased my medication intake and my headaches are fewer are farther between. I highly recommend the Anat Baniel Method!!!"
