For children, parents and families experiencing difficulties, I offer a guiding light towards the end of the tunnel. If for any reason your child is displaying challenging behaviour, or unable to cope with the demands of life, lowering their self esteem and confidence, and affecting their relationships and learning ability then I can help. It may be caused by short or long term ill health in themselves or other family members, traumatic or unsettling events, like parental separation, peer group disturbances for instance moving class or school, or simply physiological changes like puberty. This can also be generated by the discovery of conditions that can affect every aspect of life. These range from pervasive conditions like epilepsy to lesser problems, for instance dyslexia, or dietary complications like allergies and intolerances. Un -attended to, these can and do become crushing problems not just for this child but for the whole family, as all struggle not just to cope with the direct affects of the difficulty on a daily basis, but with how to navigate through life in the long term. I can provide information for what is and isn’t available to assist you, while understanding how you feel and how to help make your child feel better about themselves. Having had direct life experience of this myself, I understand how hard this can be and by drawing on this experience , my professional knowledge and access to information bases, I will endeavour with the child and family, by mutual agreement, to find solutions and strategies that work for you and your specific needs, to improve your lives and your parenting skills.
