Laura Newman Parent Consultant and Speech Therapist BSc BSc MSc

CONNECTED CHILD 

MY PASSION is working with parents, teachers & therapists to improve the conditions for raising our children, to nourish their relationships with us, to make it easier to parent & teach them, to smooth out some of their challenges at home & at school. I offer family support services to families looking for parenting skills.

I GRADUATED in the UK with the following degrees:
1) BSc in Biology
2) BSc in Speech Pathology & Therapy
3) MSc in Human Communications.

I have 19 YEARS EXPERIENCE AS A SPEECH THERAPIST in the UK working with children;
9 years experience as a Parent to my daughter;
12 years experience of healthy lifestyle following the Health Educator training at Hippocrates Health Institute;
4 years of Parenting Training with Hand in Hand Parenting & The Neufeld Institute.

MY UNIQUE SET OF SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

have fundamentally changed the way I work as a therapist and parent consultant. The developmental attachment-based model that I use is about making sense of children from the inside out by exploring their behaviour at home & at school. It is the child’s relationship with their carers which is used as the context for change, so they can provide the conditions for growth, nourishment & change.
