She e-mailed 6 months after Ben had been signed off his RRS programme. This is what she wrote:
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you again for all you have done for Ben. I must admit that I was sceptical at first, but kept an open mind and can honestly say that I have been nothing short of delighted by the results! I watched Ben win a race in a B eight at a regatta in Tewkesbury the other day and felt quite choked seeing him pulling his weight and working as part of a team. The co-ordination and timing required for that would have been totally beyond him a year ago! At 6′ 1″ (as he is now!) and with his broad frame he is certainly built to be a rower! He may well never make the A squad or the first XV in rugby, but it is just so great to see him having a go and enjoying himself.
Academically, it would seem that his results just go from strength to strength and he appears to have turned into a ‘straight A’ student! He did exceptionally well in his end of year examinations (with an average of over 70 pc) and as a result will be in many top set classes next year as he starts his GCSE course. I certainly would not hesitate to recommend your treatment to anybody with similar problems to Ben. I hope you have a good summer.
