My guess is that if you've found your way to this page then you've already exhausted the more traditional parenting styles of 'punishment and reward' and found that they're not working for you and your child.
Amanda Budden is a qualifed practitioner of the ' Aware Parenting' approach which was founded by Swiss/American developmental psychologist, Aletha Solter (Pd.D) - an internationally recognised expert on attachment trauma and non-punitive discipline. She has written 5 books, translated in many languages and her work has been described as potentially 'world changing'.
The system of collaboration, alternatives to punishment and building connection will help you raise cooperative, compassionate and competent children and is suitable for all neurotypes.
Parent coaching is included if your child is receiving psychotherapy with us. Alternatively, it is as a 'standalone' option and available as 1:1 hourly parent sessions (to get you started with new strategies and support). Followed by weekly 30 minute 'drop ins'. Available face-to-face or via Zoom.
If your child's difficulties are school-related it could be that everyone working with them needs to be part of the collaborative process. This is especially true if there are underlying differences such as sensory processing disorder, autism, ADHD, dyslexia, etc where challenging behaviours are a result of environmental and support needs within the educational setting. Ellie Smith, our SEN Advocate, will support you through the process, including applying for Educational Health Care Plans (EHCPs), attending meetings, informing you of your parental rights and generally helping you through, what can be, a very stressful experience.
