Family and Parents Coaching
How is your child or young adult feeling right now? How is your child doing at home, school, university or work?
As a parent, you know your child better than anyone, and you know when s/he is happy, full of self-confidence, motivated and achieving well in life, or is angry, frustrated, demotivated, uninspired and sad.
Is there disharmony within your family? Children who are gifted and talented, with high potential, or suffering from emotional, self-esteem or academic issues find life tough and need support.
There is overwhelming theory-based evidence about the benefits of parents being involved in their children’s education. Parental involvement positively affects children’s academic performance. Together, we will explore and find excellent solutions to improve your child’s performance and self-confidence, focusing on current and future well-being. Better academic achievement leads to improved emotional and social personal development, fewer behavioural problems, higher achievement, and most importantly, a love of life.
If your child is suffering from low self-esteem, showing signs of frustration, retreating within or is disaffected about life, school or angry, you will be suffering too. Discovering that your bright child is not reaching his/her potential is upsetting and frustrating for both of you. It is important that you discuss this with a qualified professional like me who can steer you in the right direction and reassure you.

Choose the Right School or University
Choosing the right school or college is fundamental to your child’s happiness.
Finding a school or university that is appropriate for your child involves a fair amount of research, especially if you suspect or know your child has a learning difference. It is important to do your homework thoroughly before visiting or selecting a school. Often word of mouth can be a great recommendation. But if you are new to an area or your friends’ children have different requirements, it is best to seek advice from a educational professional.
As an ex-pat and consultant to schools in the UK and worldwide, I offer parents excellent advice relocating from abroad back to the UK and vice versa. I take into consideration your child’s and family’s needs, what academic and emotional support to look out for in state and independent schools, colleges and universities in the UK and abroad.
