Getting Started

Families matter, and you are the most important person in your child’s life. When one person in the family is struggling, this can affect everyone around them. I offer support for parents to help you understand your child’s challenging behaviours, why they happen, and what you can do about them.

The first step is to meet with you, the parents, to have a chat about your concerns. We will discuss options, and work out the best way to help your child.

Holistic Approach

Coordinating with you, other therapists, and your child’s teacher is the best way of supporting your child’s growth and learning.

I have 14 years experience in offering a non-invasive, drug-free approach to identify and address underlying gaps in early development that can affect your child’s behaviour and early learning. I can support you and your child to gently address these underlying issues.

Case studies and Testimonials highlight the effectiveness of this approach.

Circle of Security Parenting

Circle of Security Parenting is a relationship-based early-intervention program. It is designed to help you to understand how your children might be feeling, and what you can do to help them. During the 1:1 sessions, parents often work through beliefs and patterns of behaviour from their own childhoods. Benefits flow not only to their children, but to those around them, including intimate partners.
