Welcome!  My name is Dr Cathy Betoin and I am a practising clinical psychologist and an experienced teacher.

The I Matter Relationship Health Awareness Programme, is for parents and professionals of children with everyday challenges or for those needing a quick start to thinking about the issues. 

The I Matter Relationship Health Core Programme is our more in depth programme for professionals and determined parents who want to equip themselves for confidence with the child or adult who has additional needs or challenges.   

The I Matter Clinic and trained facilitators provide support for parents and professionals who are progressing through these programmes.  Supported learning is provided via organisational members with Faciliators or Advanced Practitioners where there are raised concerns
