Many thanks for your session yesterday. It was really informative, useful and – amazingly – you made it enjoyable. That was quite a feat given the subject matter that we requested, but it was a very skilled presentation. Thank you!’ Senior Educational Psychologist
Thank you so much for the excellent training you gave this afternoon. The whole staff greatly benefited from your insights and really enjoyed the session. Head Teacher
When adults are concerned about a child’s progress, the situation can often be moved forward through consultation. This is where the adult brings a concern to be discussed. Solution focused approaches are often used to find a positive way forward. Often the process of talking the problem through can help to highlight the best course of action. These sessions can be useful to brainstorm ideas with class teachers or other school staff. In addition they are often useful ways for parents to seek strategies when struggling with children displaying troublesome behaviour at home, for example.
A situation may be discussed in a brief solution session lasting approximately 30 minutes or in a longer consultation of about one hour. Charges are typically £80 per hour plus travel. Consultations can be conducted in person or remotely.
A report is not usually written following a consultation.
