Tailoring unique solutions to suit your needs

This is not a “one-size fits all” approach. Clients complete a detailed background information form, providing important insights into their specific concerns. The latest parenting strategies, backed by neuroscience, are tailored to suit. The skills help to meet the individual needs of different children (and  adults!), it’s a life-long curriculum. The knowledge you gain will be invaluable at every stage of your child’s development and once you have learned these skills you will have them forever.

How does the service work?

Book an initial consultation and an assessment can be made as to how many sessions will be required to get an understanding of the skills needed. Usually clients need 3-4 sessions to begin. Follow up sessions can be booked as and when required.

Let’s imagine your child is an adult – what sort of person are they?

How do we influence our child, over time, to become that person? This question can be a useful way to clarify your goals. You will experience more joy when you are parenting in a calmer and easier way.

Where are you now on your parenting journey?

Busy lifestyles make it easy to be in a habit of nagging and repeating ourselves. Parents often feel tired, overwhelmed and unappreciated. Sometimes we can react with punishments that don’t work and that make us look weak. Instead of resorting to threats and bribes we can learn how to stay calm.We can be in charge in a loving and positive way without needing to resort to ineffective methods.
