What causes your child to behave the way they do? What are they feeling, what are they trying to achieve by their behaviour, and what can you do about it?
I encourage parents to focus on the holistic needs of the whole child, all of which should be met in a flexible, fluid, and carefully planned routine. This should be the positive foundations of your child's life. Consistency and routine play a big part in a child's behaviour and emotional well-being, especially those with behavioural problems.
I advocate a method called "Positive Parenting", which I believe has the best outcomes for both parent and child, and is a technique favoured by the Behaviourist school of psychology. However, a happy, positive child requires a happy, positive parent. Achieve calm, inner strength, and tranquility within yourself and your home.
I offer one-to-one, holistic, hands-on support and advice to parents in London, Essex, Hertfordshire, Middlesex and beyond. Some services may only be available locally. Telephone, Skype and email consultations available UK-wide and overseas.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, stressed or isolated as a parent of young children, give me a call. A problem shared is a problem halved, and we will work together to make things better. I will encourage tears, laughter and a sense of humour about parenthood.
I take a holistic view to child development – environment, health, diet, experiences, family are all key.
And above all, I am always creative and open minded – all families are different, and each family will need different solutions.
Anger and resentment
Formerly a professional nanny, I have spent over a decade working with children and their families in London. I have aided children with speech delay, occupational therapy needs, sensory needs, and ocular needs. I have helped families through the arrival of new babies, separations, relocations, vacations, weddings, the addition of step-siblings, transitions into and out of schools, the 7+ process, and the 11+ process. I have worked with children of all ages, and families of all sizes.
