Parent Coaching

Coaching Photo

I've got a secret for you: You are the expert on your child. You might not feel that way right now, but trust me, you are.

As a Parent Coach, I draw on my Psychology training and my many years of experience supporting families in learning new ways to manage behaviour that challenge them. From struggling with a toddler who never listens and who hits and kicks when angry, to children with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), I can help you create a calmer family life.

Let's Be Detectives Together

My job is to help you become confident in your role as a parent by:

  • Helping you understand the 'whys' behind your child's behaviour
  • Helping you make sense of your child's behaviour in light of their development, their strengths, and their areas that need support
  • Helping you how to recognise situations that your child might struggle with and how to plan to increase the chances that things will go well
  • Helping you identify strategies that fit with your family
  • Helping you learn how to tweak strategies for different situations
  • Helping you identify your parenting goals and how we can get you there
  • Helping you identify your triggers and learn how to manage them
  • Helping you find a balance between looking after your family and looking after yourself

Coaching Packages

All situations are different, so I've got different packages to suit families' different needs. Sometimes, all you need is a safe space to talk things through with an impartial person to make sense of things or tweak existing strategies so one session is enough.

Other times, there are multiple challenges that you're facing or changes need to be made slowly. Therefore, you need more than one session.

1. Bronze Package: One-Off 90-Minute Coaching Session (No Written Report) - £95
  • This is for you if after completing the initial questionnaire, it seems as though you're already on the right track but could benefit from help identifying patterns in behaviour, new strategies, or simply need to tweak existing strategies.
  • You'll be asked to fill in a behaviour diary for a week prior to our session. This will be discussed in the session and forms an important part of understanding the situation you're struggling with.
  • A 90-minute session either in-person*, telephone*, or Skype, depending on your preference and where you live, will be arranged.
  • Our session will consist of an in-depth discussion about your situation using the information in the initial questionnaire, the behaviour diary, and any other information that comes up in the session.
  • I'll help you make sense of the information and provide you with strategies and a plan (if required) to help move things forward.
  • 2 follow-up support mini-sessions will follow the session should you require these. Follow-up support mini-sessions can be an email or a 30-minute telephone call, depending on your preference (and your location). These must be taken within 4-weeks of our session.
  • Payment is due 24 hours before your session. I accept payment via bank transfer or PayPal.

3. Gold: 6-Weeks Coaching Sessions - £395
  • This is for you if after completing the initial questionnaire, it seems as though the situation has been difficult for some time, there's a lot going on and you're not sure where to start, you feel stuck and confused about what you should do to improve things, and/or your child doesn't react to changes well and changes need to be made slowly.
  • After completing the initial questionnaire, you'll be asked to fill in a behaviour diary for a week prior to our session. This will be discussed in the first session and forms an important part of understanding the situation(s) you are struggling with.
  • You'll have 6 x 1-hour sessions with me either in-person*, telephone*, or Skype, depending on your preference and where you live. Sessions can be arranged weekly or fortnightly, depending on your needs.
  • Our initial session will consist of an in-depth discussion about your situation using the information in the initial questionnaire, the behaviour diary, and any other information that comes up in the session. We'll also identify your parenting goals and triggers that make remaining calm in the face of your child's behaviour difficult.
  • I'll help you make sense of the information and provide you with strategies and a plan to help move things forward.
  • You'll receive before our next session a written report of what we discussed.
  • The remaining sessions will consist of reviewing progress and make tweaks to anything that aren't going as smoothly as they could be.

This package is helpful if you have more than one child and you want to think of how to improve family life with them as well.

I accept payment via bank transfer or PayPal.

6. Additional Mini-Sessions (30 minutes) - £30

  • Once you've had your last mini-session, you might want to get in touch to get a bit more support. Unless the situation has changed a lot, additional mini-sessions as and when you need are available.
  • These mini-sessions are a 30-minute telephone or Skype call.
  • These are best used within 12-18 months of working together, as a lot can change in more than this time and we are likely to need more time to become detectives again.
