How is your child doing at home, school or university? How is your child feeling right now?
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 and at school or is sad, frustrated, anxious, demotivated, uninspired, perhaps angry.
Together, we will explore and find excellent solutions to improve your child’s performance and self-confidence, focusing on current and future well-being.
Is your child finding life tough? Is there disharmony within your family? Children who learn differently, who are gifted/talented, with high potential, or suffering from emotional and self-esteem issues need support. Parental involvement positively affects children’s academic performance.
There is overwhelming theory-based evidence about the benefits of parents being involved in their children’s education. Better academic achievement leads to improved emotional and social personal development, fewer behavioural problems, higher achievement and greater enjoyment of school, and most importantly, a love of life.
I am a qualified cognitive IQ assessor, PGCE teacher and specialist educator with many years’ experience in learning differences, high potential, giftedness and talent. The author of Dyslexia: TIME FOR TALENT.
I and my family have dyslexia, so I understand first hand as a woman, business woman, specialist educator and parent exactly what can be achieved with excellent understanding and support. I am very upbeat, highly positive and motivational about the outcomes for both children and adults when they are understood and receive the right level of support. My approach is holistic: mind, body and soul.
If your child is suffering from low self-esteem, showing signs of frustration, retreating within or is disaffected about school or misbehaving, you will be suffering too. For most people, discovering they have a learning difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, a speech and language difficulty or ADHD can be a great shock or a massive relief. 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 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.
