“There are so many emotions involved when you first learn your adult child is transitioning from male to female. I don’t know how to begin to thank Ceril for her professional support and guidance. Having someone who confidently helps you to navigate the early steps was a life saver for us. Ceril could say things I was too afraid to say, without hurting my daughter and made it fun for us to learn together about her developing style. What to try and not to try, some basic and golden rules to give us both confidence. As a journey from girl to woman evolves over many years, where do you start when they transition aged 19? Thank you Ceril for holding my hand as well as my daughter’s.”
– Molly’s mum

“Ceril has been an amazing help to me.  I contacted her originally to look for some help with improving my style and appearance.  She was straightforward and direct and helped me to realise that I could get rid of at least a quarter of my wardrobe (which I did);  all those things that didn’t really fit or didn’t look as good on at home as they did in the shop.  It means that I’m so much more confident now that what I’m wearing looks good on me.  In our next session our conversation went so much further than just clothes and appearance.  We talked about what I wanted from life; about my relationships and how I might start to have conversations about transitioning with those nearest to me; and we still had time for a few make up tips. Thank you so much for your warmth and kindness Ceril”

“Ceril’s passion and knowledge is truly inspirational, as soon as our paths crossed I knew instantly that ‘she knows her stuff!’ – I just want to climb inside her head and steal all her style secrets!”
– Stephanie Hirst (BBC Radio Leeds)

“What an incredibly warm and empathetic person Ceril is, making both my newly transitioning daughter (aged 20) and myself totally at ease. Ceril listened carefully to understand and create the slightly androgynous “street style” look that my daughter was aiming for. A look that works for her current University lifestyle. Ceril gave haircut and style advice, eyebrow shaping, beard cover and make-up lessons, together with underwear and clothes shopping to help make the most of my daughter’s changing body shape. All this has helped my daughter on her journey to being the best and confident version of herself she can be. We both look forward to seeing Ceril again in the future and would highly recommend her to anybody. Thanks Ceril x” – Mother (Herts)

“Ceril is friendly, approachable, reassuring, very efficient but not intimidating” – Irene
