Parent & Teen Relationship Coach

Hi there – I’ve been working with children, young people and families for over twenty years now – I know!!!! I’m skilled in the management and the psychology of teen behaviour where I have accumulated a ton of experience and conducted much research.

I now work under the umbrella of the ‘Ingenuity for Social Change’ at the University of Nottingham because the social change that I am intent on making is ensuring that parents and carers are central to the developmental process of their children because – guess what –  you, me and other parents are THE experts of our own children.

Yes – sometimes we need a little guidance – just as we did when our children were first born – but the bottom line is – if we have the support, then a lot of the growing number of teen issues that we are seeing today can be managed by us, in our own homes.
