How can you know what to focus on if you are not sure where you are starting from?

We specialise in helping professionals and parents where difficulties for a focus child have been present for over 9 months and what has been tried to date has not yet seemed to help.

All I Matter Journey's start with our specialist Assessment and Recommendation Services.  These are offered by Dr Cathy Betoin drawing on her training as a clinical psychologist and teacher.    

The assessment and recommendations process is intended to help parents and carers gain a better understanding of the current concerns with a view to finding the best way forward.   We offer a two stage process with an initial questionnaire followed by three types of assessment and recommendations package

+ CORE ASSESSMENT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
+ COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT AND RECOMMENDATIONS
+ BESPOKE SPECIALIST ASSESSMENT AND RECOMMENDATIONS

All three assessments include an introduction to an I Matter approach via the First Steps Course

We take a careful initial approach to help families understand what the key issues are and what the priorities are in order to make a difference for a child or in relation to a specific issue. Cathy engages with adults and young people affected by difficult circumstances or early life trauma and and their parents and carers, helping everyone learn how to build their confidence and full potential in the context of happier and healthier relationships. The assessment and recommendation services  help you answer questions about

+ relationship health 
+ contributors to current issues
+ potential diagnoses

These can be offered as a stand alone service or can be complemented with and followed by 

  • Further I Matter Training - equipping you to find a way forward
  • Training for school staff 
  • Confidence building for young people

Where funds permit, more in depth bespoke assessment can support

  • A more detailed exploration of diagnostic questions
  • Post Adoption Support Plans
  • EHCP Plan support
  • Joined up home-school thinking
  • Therapeutic Child Care Consultancy
