The APPROACH is DEVELOPMENTAL as opposed to medical or behavioural. We look at each child’s presentation while considering their developmental state, taking into account the context of their environment and their history. We address the root cause of the behaviour not just the symptoms, in order to achieve a lasting change. We base our work on leading developmental science and experience with thousands of clients using this approach.

The PARENT CONSULTING APPROACH helps children by working through their parents rather than directly with children. Parents thus receive the insight and support they need to become the answers to their children.
