Children’s behaviour can be challenging and working out the best way forward can be tough. Sarah uses her wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to provide a flexible, practical approach to parenting that is individual and family centred.
As a mother of 2 grown up girls and a grandparent with 2 granddaughters, I know parenting can be fun and rewarding, but also exhausting, tough and challenging at times. There are so many opinions and judgements out there that it can be easy to doubt your own instincts and how you want to parent. Expectations are high – we feel we should know better, do better and be better parents for our children.
I have worked with parents and families for over 30 years. This has enabled me to gain a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience, which in turn enables me to provide a flexible, practical approach to parenting that is individual and family centred.
Children’s behaviour can be challenging and working out the best way forward can be tough. However, by working through what is actually going on for your child, underneath the behaviour, enables the right strategies to be put in place, rather than a one size fits all approach.
There may be behaviour you want to understand better, life events that are causing stress, sadness or anxiety, situations you want to handle differently or even change completely. By having space to think about your child, a deeper understanding of their behaviour will be achieved leading to improved relationships and a calmer family life.
Putting changes in place can be difficult, but with guidance, encouragement and support you will be able to understand your child better, have an improved relationship with them and be able to use a ‘tool kit’ of strategies that adapt and work for you.
I worked for the NHS as an experienced parenting and family practitioner, as part of a behavioural support team and worked closely with Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), receiving high level clinical supervision. I am also a qualified integral counsellor.
I have completed many evidence-based training programmes including Parenting Positively, Parent Partnership training, Positive Parenting accreditation to deliver Time Out for Parents, Millpond Sleep Training, The Solihull Approach, HENRY and the TEACCH approach in collaboration with the National Autistic Society all of which I use in my daily practice.
