Support and Training                      

In addition to direct work with children and young people I offer parenting support and training on the behaviour of children and adolescents. This is designed for parents, carers, teachers and other professionals. It can be standalone or alongside other therapy/support.




Training is offered on attachment and the emotional needs of children and young people. It is designed to:



Increase understanding and management of child and adolescent behaviour



Foster a greater knowledge of how the emotional needs of young people affects their ability  to focus, achieve, form relationships and possess confidence and enthusiasm for life  




This may include information on how the following has an impact on learning and wellbeing:



ACE's: Adverse Childhood Experiences



Toxic Stress



Emotional states: anger, fear, sadness and joy



Attachment and bonding



The emotional needs of children and adolescents



Early brain development, the neuro-biology of attachment



Trauma, neglect and loss



Parental mental health



The importance of boundaries



Training can be tailor-made to answer particular questions or to meet your requirements.


Support for Teachers

I offer sessions for whole or small groups of teachers as well as teacher training packages.  This service can help support teaching staff by reflecting on the difficult areas of their role and connect with how attachment and neuroscience will be impacting the child’s behaviour. I can also facilitate how this impacts the school as a system, particularly ways in which professionals can be impacted by the trauma of the children they work with and how to manage this.  


Thinking this through and gaining more knowledge on secondary trauma can help staff groups to feel more confident, become better equipped to take on their daily challenges and feel more optimistic about their role and the team. This in turn will have a positive impact on the pupils and the ethos of the school.  Please note that I do not have to be working with pupils in the school already to undertake training sessions.
