I offer sessions for parents, guardians, foster parents, grandparents anyone involved with children and teenagers. Sessions can be run on an individual basis or with enough participants I can run a course for up to 8 people. Sessions are based on emotion coaching using the 'Tuning into Kids' and Tuning into Teens' programme. This is an evidence-based parenting program that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children, it's been found to be particularly helpful for children with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

DEALING WITH SEPARATION AND DIVORCE
If you are a couple dealing with the difficulties of separation and concerned about your children and how to manage their emotions through this time; I can offer sessions to guide you either as a couple or separately.
“One of the most difficult things for me when going through the breakdown of my marriage was the anxiety of how it would impact on our daughter. My ex-husband and I attended a session together with Sarah to discuss how to handle our separation for our 5-year-old. As a result, I feel less afraid of my daughter’s potentially difficult emotions and more trusting that both she and I will be ok. Learning the lesson that you can allow your child to be upset or angry if they need and to trust that with love and support they will get through it and develop life skills from the experience is both a difficult and liberating experience as a parent. I think our meeting with Sarah gave both me and my ex-husband more confidence in how best to look after our little girl, now and in the future, in our own individual ways. I feel more trusting that her father and I are on the same page about the core issues and that we will be able to go forward as a positive co-parenting team. I am deeply grateful for that, and also to know that we have back-up from Sarah in the future if we are struggling.”
