Need Help?

It is a tough job being a parent! As your child gets older, it can become more and more challenging to find ways of changing your child’s behaviour for the better or even know what to do next. As a parent, you may have been struggling with the presenting problematic behaviour at home and/or school for a while, with your child truanting from school or even getting in trouble with the police. I can help to share the burden of this seemingly unforgiving responsibility. Not only can I help you to develop positive parenting skills, I can also provide you with practical support, guidance and advice in relation to:

  • Statutory Education & SEN
  • Family Tensions & Relationships
  • Medical Conditions/Emotional Well-being
  • The Police & the Criminal Justice System

Education

RKCS Parent Tough Job

Would you like me to help you “fight your corner” at those dreaded School meetings?

  • I have a raft of experience in dealing with Attendance Panels, Annual Reviews, Pastoral Support Plan Meetings (PSP) and Re-integration Meetings.
  • I can also observe lessons and provide constructive feedback outlining an intervention plan that will help secure a “win-win” outcome for all parties.
  • I have a proven track record of supporting and coaching children, families, parents or carers to find the most productive way to get their voice heard whilst endeavouring to safeguard the child’s school place.

Special Educational Needs (SEN)

Would you like me to help you with the SEN paperwork to assess or review the ongoing needs of your child?

  • I can provide the SEN team with a detailed account of any direct or indirect involvement I have had with your child to support your case.
  • I can meet with members of the SEN team to help them gain a more accurate interpretation of the needs of your child.
  • I can confirm that SEN colleagues always remark favourably on my contributions to both the statutory assessment process and the compilation of the EHC Plan document.

Children’s Social Care

Would you like me to help you have a voice at those difficult Child Protection, Child in Need (CiN) or Team Around the Child (TAC) meetings?

  • I can explain the role and work of Children’s Social Care to you in words which you will understand.
  • I can help you to gain an awareness of the potential implications of the process as well as support you to meet the demands that may be placed upon you.
  • Most importantly I can help to ensure that you are represented at any official meetings with this service, without fear of judgement.

CAMHS

Would you like me to help you to be able to share your concerns with Paediatricians and/or other medical professionals?

  • I can help you to gather and reflect upon any personal information that is relevant to your child and your child’s needs.
  • I can support you to present your case in a way that will lend weight to your initial referral and help to increase subsequent engagement with CAMHS or other medical professionals.
  • I can act as the “go-between” with other services and/or agencies to ensure other vital corroborative information is included alongside your personal information.

The Police

Would you like me to help you to successfully navigate your way through your involvement in the Criminal Justice System?

  • I can ensure that you understand your rights and responsibilities within the processes that are followed at either the Police Station or at Court so that you know what to expect.
  • I can help you and your child to deal with the Police in a way that is less stressful and more likely to result in co-operation, information sharing and mutual respect.
  • I can ensure your child’s Special Educational Needs and/or preferred Learning Style is taken into account in order to maximise the usefulness of the intervention.

You Personally

Would you like me to help you on a 1:1 basis or would you like the opportunity to attend a Parenting Programme facilitated by me?

  • I can arrange to meet and have sessions with you that are in the comfort of your own home, at a venue chosen by you or that are conducted remotely via Skype.
  • I can have sessions with you that start from where you are and that are at your own pace. These can be with or without your child, partner or other interested parties.
  • I can carry out the following parenting programmes with you on a 1:1 basis or in a group setting:
    1. Time out for Parents: Children with Special Needs, ADHD, ASD.
    2. Positive Parenting Programme® – Teen (Triple P) – evidence-based
    3. “Who’s in Charge?” (“WiC?”) Adolescent to Parent Violence and Abuse (APVA).
  • I can help you complete a Personal Independence Payment (PIP) application for you or your child, formerly known as Disability Living Allowance (DLA).
