About us

We are two behaviour specialists that support children, their families and teachers with managing difficult behaviour. Difficult behaviour can negatively impact different aspects of your child’s life such as learning, interaction with their friends and siblings, home life and school inclusion. Our approach is child centered and parent led, we focus on understanding all aspects of your child’s life, their likes and dislikes, their skills and of course, their biggest challenges. We use this combined with other important information to really understand why the difficult behaviour is happening and to make changes which are practical and effective. Our aim is to support you and your child on effective strategies for change.
