Online and phone support

As a result of the pandemic, I have developed my ‘remote’ consultation offer.

My key intervention:

  • 3 consultations (phone/WhatsApp/Zoom) of an hour and a quarter per call; these are usually around 2 weeks apart
  • I provide emailed notes of my advice following each call
  • If required I answer questions and provide further email advice between calls (up to 3 detailed responses)

Before the first consultation, I ask for an email outlining 2 or 3 behavioural incidents from trigger to the endpoint with the response from the parent/carer(s). I ask for a summary of any relevant background information, including a note of how the child behaves in other settings

My advice is based on positive preventative techniques, calm setting of boundaries and assertive, mild-mannered follow through – proven strategies that work well as long as parents can be consistent and persistent.

Please find testimonials here from parents, including those who have consulted me remotely.

Home visits for child behaviour issues

During ‘normal times’ home consultations can be offered in the Bristol and Somerset area. My key intervention is a series of 3 visits scheduled 2 weeks apart. Please find parent testimonials here…

I will notify you on this site when home visits are reinstated.

Tips for Screen Time Management

As I work alongside parents it usually becomes clear that electronic screens are a cause of concern and anxiety. Parents tend to feel ‘out of control’ as they see their children utterly engrossed in their own screen world, to what seems like an unhealthy degree. Mums and Dads wonder about how to tackle the issue and the limits they should place on their children.
