About me

Has your child's behaviour escalated recently?

Not in the ways that others might think... Somehow their behaviour is just... different! But in ways that only you understand. Perhaps your child runs away, doesn't listen, spits, shouts, smears or has frequent "meltdowns".

No matter what is underlying your child's challenging behaviour, as parent myself, I want to help you reduce the behaviours so that your child can achieve their full potential!
I specialise in helping parents understand the function of their child's challenging behaviour.

I provide mental health and behavioural assessments, and use tried and tested strategies, adapted especially for children who are "different" to help parents reduce behaviours that challenge.

My approach is gentle and nurturing and prioritises the attachment bond.

When your child's behaviour is challenging, being a parent can feel incredibly isolating and challenging. But you don't have to go at it alone! Together, we can understand why your child does "that" behaviour and find gentle ways to reduce or stop it!

Get in touch with me for support from someone who really gets it!
