Assisting someone who is struggling to communicate involves taking the time out to just stop for a moment and recognise their predicament. It involves developing a way to communicate, in a way that both parties understand, in way that is clear and comprehensible. It is through this process that both parties can move forward, secure in the knowledge that they can properly communicate.
If you are having difficulties with pupils in the school environment, I can use a combination of strategies and techniques to assist education professionals, and work in unison to identify positive approaches to adjust behaviours and identify ways for students to progress both socially and academically. I have more than twenty years’ experience, observing pupils with autism, ADHD, learning difficulties and special needs, identifying areas requiring attention and developing child-centred techniques to bring about change.
Children and adults often find it intimidating meeting with professionals in office-based situations and environments. Considering this, I can travel to your home and observe non-intrusively as you and your child interact. Indeed, it may be more productive to visit the parents a handful of times to develop alternative approaches to interact, rather than having the child involved in every meeting.

I work with schools, supported living organisations and families who are looking to develop ways to implement Applied Behaviour Analysis and Positive Behaviour Support Methods. Whether you are beginners or experts, I can create tailor-made packages to best suit your needs.
Executive functions are processes in the brain which allow us to undertake vital tasks such as planning enterprises, managing emotions and staying organised. If this critical skill is underdeveloped, this can have a significant impact on your learning and development and your relationships with friends and family.
I work with children, adolescents and adults to identify which of the twelve executive functions that you may be having difficulties in. Then we work together to create a detailed plan of action to assist you in overcoming these obstacles.

If you are finding it tough in regulating your behaviour, I can also offer support in working together to help monitor and manage these behaviours. Over the years I’ve worked with a number of individuals who desire change but are struggling to find the best methods in making this change. I take the time to understand your situation and guide you towards the most effective practices to achieve this. Please get in touch for more information about my one to one behavioural coaching.
If you feel you are having difficulties with your children, sometimes what is needed is an objective person to assess the situation and to support all the parties in rekindling effective communication and developing strategies to move forward. If you feel the relationship between your child has reached complications, I can observe you and your child non-intrusively, and work in partnership with all concerned to identify the best steps in moving forward in a positive way.
Taking into consideration attachment theory as well as what we know to be effective parenting strategies and alongside your personal situation, we can collaboratively create a detailed plan of action to move forward. It is through this supportive network that we can hope to create positive change so as to create a more harmonious home environment for you and your children. Please contact me for more discussion about parental coaching, executive function coaching and behavioural consultancy in Wirral and the UK.
