I have extensive experience of working closely with parents. During my 37 years as an educator, I supported many parents who endeavoured to be there for their children, who may be struggling or have issues. Being a parent and grandparent myself, I know that children are our most precious gift and every parent just wants the best for their children.
My experience has shown me that when parents are supported and fully present themselves, it has a hugely positive effect on children. Teenagers thrive when they know they can tell their parents when they need help, but many, despite the best efforts of their parents continue to struggle in silence.
Modern–day parenting presents its own unique set of challenges. I offer guidance in a very supportive environment, while allowing parents space to reflect on how they can best help themselves and their children navigate the journey through life and education. My focus is on helping parents trust in themselves and their ability to help their children.
Parents have everything they need within to be great parents, but with the pressures and stress of day to day living, it can be hard. We all need encouragement from time to time to help us tap into these abilities and support our children in living confident and happy lives.
