Understanding your child's behaviour
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?
A holistic approach to child development
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 support to parents via video call, telephone and email UK-wide and overseas. Hands-on support, home visits and outdoor coaching sessions are available locally in London, Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex. Other locations subject to request. Please read Covid-19 update!
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.
