Welcome to Adult-Child Well-Being 'I Matter' Framework Training

I Matter Training and Coaching Helps You to Understand and Help the Child Who is Struggling or Challenging 

Most professionals and parents who are caring for children who are struggling or challenging will know the experience of not knowing what to do to help.

So, where do you go and what do you do when YOU are feeling worried and confused - particularly if waiting lists are long or the advice you find seems difficult to understand or apparently contradictory? 

Then what do you do when help is really needed but not available?  Or the  plan that is in place doesn't address YOUR needs?   You have to ask what is happening.   Why are there so many children who are struggling? 

So what if your experience could be different?  What if greater clarity was a possibility and there was a different way to go forward?

The I Matter Framework draws decades of scientific research into a really practical, interesting and helpful format. specifically designed to help professionals and parents who want to understand children's behaviour more deeply and deliver more effective help together.  The good news is you can make a difference - but there is some new learning to do first.

Imagine what your professional or personal life would be like if you had …

-- less confusion and more clarity when making sense of what steps to take to help your child

-- confidence that you could work well with others to help your child, or others, with shared ideas

-- confidence that YOU had a really key role to play to help your child in your work or home setting

SO THAT ... your adult-child relationship could feel easier and so that...you and your child were thriving

Over the last 10 years, professionals, and parents in a wide variety of situations have taken part in our CPD accredited I Matter training course.  Here is the sort of thing they say...

  • “I Matter Training completely changed the way I feel about my role at work
  • “I Matter Training gave me the confidence that I can help my child and have a better relationship with him
  • “I Matter Training gave me tools that I wish I had been given so many years previously
  • "The I Matter Framework and Training has been adopted by our Integrated Care Community to
  • support our local strategy for work with children and families"

Healthier and Happier Homes, Schools and Communities:  One Important Relationship at a Time



This approach rebuilds the hope and confidence of professionals and parents by providing a language and concepts that we can all work together with that ties elements together. It just makes complete sense
