Making Family Life Better…. Together

As a parent we all want the very best for our children.  We work hard to ensure they are healthy and happy

But sometimes we need a little extra help.

Especially if your child has a neurodiverse condition, such as Autism, ADHD or Sensory Processing Disorder.

The problem is that often we are isolated, fearful of judgement, and, frankly at our wits end.

We might have so many questions, or not even know which questions to ask.

We might be on a 60-week waiting list, but need answers now on how to manage meltdowns, engage with school, and get the professionals in our lives to actually listen to us.

This is especially true if our child has a neurodiverse condition that is considered to be “not quite disabled enough” and there are children “with a much more significant need”.

I know, from over 14 years personal experience, how challenging, isolating and relentless this kind of parenting can be. 

You might be managing meltdowns, school avoidance, attachment issues, lack of engagement from school and child on parent aggression. 

And all before breakfast on Monday. 

This is why I’m here. To support you so you can support your family, and everyone can have a calmer, happier family life. A family life with more of the good days that seem lacking at the moment.

Juggling meltdowns and mayhem?

Waiting lists for CAMHS and similar services are at an all time high.  And the list grows longer every day. 

Once you’re actually on the list you’ll still have a significant wait for your initial appointment. 

And even if you have a diagnosis, appointments for further intervention can also have significant waiting times.

So what can you do whilst you wait? Both for your child and your family need help now.

The short answer is “lots”.

I can help you work out what tools, strategies and information are going to help you make life better. I can also help you evidence and record your child’s behaviours and plan how you can make the most of your appointment when you finally get there.

My goal is to empower you to be able to advocate for your child, make family life the best it can be.

I am a compassionate and non-judgemental educator, helping you to decide what extra challenges your family can embrace.

Considering adoption?

As an adoptive parent, I can also assist if you’re considering adoption and overwhelmed by all the new terminology. 

It can be difficult to know how to navigate all the decisions you need to make. 

Together we can explore what all the jargon means, identify what type of children you can embrace, and decide what resources you’ll need in place to do this.

You’ll be able to welcome your new family comfortable in the knowledge that you’ve laid the best possible foundation for the happy family life you’ve chosen.

Your child is at the heart of everything we do

All my work is done with care and compassion, and without any judgement.

My sole goal is to give you the tools and skills you need to make your family life the very best it can be. 

I aim to help you implement that strategies your family needs, and, if necessary, access the support you and your child deserve.

You’ll be equipped to make the very best decisions for your family

I know it’s hard to do this as a family alone. 

We did so for many years. 

I’m here to make sure you don’t have to any more.
