Pre and Post Adoption Therapeutic Support that Supports Children and Teenagers and Adults

I specialise in supporting professionals and parents where there is a concern about a child or in relationships that has been present for more than 9 months and where a number of things have been tried that have not yet seemed to help. 

One of my specailist areas of interest is post adoption support.   The truth is I have seen a lot of support that starts too late....and is linked with difficulties that could have been prevented if the right training had been present at an earlier stage.

Adoption is a big life event for children and for adults.  So it is not wise to pretend otherwise. Well informed support is really really key
It will save you a lot of heart ache later on

In Pre and post adoption support my aim is to engage with both adults and young people affected by difficult circumstances or trauma helping everyone learn how to build their confidence and full potential in the context of happier and healthier relationships.

Following a specialist Assessment and Recommendations process, I offers a package of I Matter Training and services that draw on my training as a clinical psychologist and teacher and are designed to equip you with the fundamentals   These psychological services include:

  • I Matter Psycho-Education and Coaching
  • Liaison and core training with schools, health and community services
  • Specialist Consultation and oversight for staff in direct roles 
  • Certification support

My primary focus is always on the development or restoration of relationship health as when healthier relationships are in place, most other issues can progress and resolve with positive outcomes.
