Dr Cathy Betoin,  Director of the I Matter Project

Clinical psychologist, Teacher and Parent.  After nearly 30 years of practice with children and adults with complex social emotional needs seen in the context of CAMHS and Child Psychology, Adoption, Fostering and Paediatric services, I now specialise in adult-child relationship health, with a focus on understanding challenging complex behaviour in children in the context of confusion, overwhelm and exhaustion in adults.   As a specialist, I take the guesswork out of the return to well-being and health at home and in the community.

I train professionals and parents and lead a team of practitioners in the Kendal area in an I Matter approach.  Together we identify the contributors to the adult-child relationship challenges including where adult-child relationships are on the path to recovery of relationship health.   With our joined up approach, we help you systematically address the factors that are contributing to the current difficulties and help you move forward with tried and tested solutions that support you in moving step by step on your journey back to family wellbeing being and health including healthy social development for children and adults at home, at school and in community

In my spare time I love walking in the Lake District and Pyreneean fells and cycling with my recently acquired electric bike!

If I had understood these ideas earlier
