My Experience and Approach to Child Behaviour Support

I have a proven track record of gaining success in changing behaviour. I have a wealth of experience, and my advice is based on positive and respectful management of children with appropriate boundary setting.

  • I am parent and a qualified teacher
  • I have taught for over 30 years
  • I have had experience as a Head of House and manager in an SEN department
  • I’ve worked in two Local Authorities as a Behaviour Advisory Teacher
  • I am trained (and provide training) in a range of behaviour-related areas, including ASD, Attachment Disorder and ADHD
  • I have attended certificated courses on coaching and motivational interviewing
  • I have an additional qualification: ‘Specialist Leader in Behaviour and Attendance’ (City and Guilds Level 4)
  • I support and advise adults (school staff and parents) to manage the behaviour of children and teenagers (4-16 years)
  • and I work with young people to develop their emotional and social skills

Smacking Avoidance

We’ve heard that the Welsh government is about to ban parents from smacking their children.In England reasonable physical chastisement by parents can be seen as lawful in some situations, but the general consensus is that smacking isn’t an appropriate way to manage children’s behaviour.
