“ Behaviour is a child’s language”
I provide help and support for parents who are struggling to cope or who have run out of ideas about what to do next, to help solve a difficulty their child has and which is either distressing to watch or disrupting family life in in some way.
My knowing comes from having a broad and extensive understanding of; child personality development, early life personality adaptations, about how difficulties unknowingly begin in families and what you can do to begin to support your child and bring about change. Also through my own difficulties as a parent and having experienced heartbreak, fear, utter frustration and anger all at the same time.
Whilst I don’t offer counselling for children and this is something that may be more suitable I have developed an approach which many find helpful and an initial conversation or meeting should establish if my help is likely to be useful for you.
Some common reasons I am asked to help:
- Rudeness, belligerence and / or aggressive behaviors.
- Children with Asperger’s.
- Social exclusion.
- Guidance through divorce or separation.
- Self harming.
- Attention seeking.
- Being bullied.
- Regression into younger behaviors.
- Lacking interest in life, friends or school work.
- Step parenting
Our work is designed to provide a framework and plan you can use to turn around your relationship. Although it may lead to immediate changes, only by remaining sensitive to what our children need and offering this with consistency and by modelling the behaviors you want your children to copy, will you create lasting change.
