Parenting During Covid-19

This is a stressful time for many families. This talk explores techniques to manage anxiety and protect children’s mental health, develop their soft skills, increase their self confidence and reduce the risk of family conflict and sibling rivalry.

Time To Fly - final preparation for independent living

Finishing school is always daunting and, perhaps more so than ever with gap year travel suspended, summer work limited and uncertainty over what universities will be able to run.

We will consider what we can do to help young people manage the transition to independent adult life and prepare them for the next stage of their journey.

Transition to Senior School

This year’s leavers are facing a particularly challenging transition. They need skills to help them manage any anxiety and set them up for a successful senior school career. We will explore how our parental role must change to meet their need for independence.

How To Manage Worry, Stress & Anxiety

This talk is designed to help parents develop the self awareness and self management skills needed for emotional resilience. Understanding techniques from CBT and research from neuroscience, means we can give young people the tools to handle stress and avoid the anxiety trap.

Protecting Children's Mental Health

This talk looks at the personal, social and environmental factors affecting mental health. It considers which factors we can influence as parents, when we need to seek professional help and what strategies we can give young people to help them protect their own wellbeing.

Developing Resilience in Young People

This talk explores the four pillars of resilience. It looks at how we can help young people develop the positive mindsets & attitudes, self efficacy, resourcefulness and creativity that will allow them to become independent and courageous individuals who can cope with life’s vicissitudes.

Creating Cultures of Success

Discover the mindset and culture of success. Explore how we can create an environment in which young people are given the permission to succeed without the pressure, which we know can cause emotional problems.

Building Self Esteem

Learn what self esteem is, its role in determining the state of our mental health and why it should be the primary job of any parent to help their children develop it.

Friendships & Relationships

There can be few things parents find more upsetting than seeing their children struggle with relationships. This talk looks at why relationships can be particularly challenging between 8 and 18 and how we can help them develop good social and communication skills.

Teens & Screens

Understand the positives and negatives of your child’s online world. Help them become responsible digital citizens, who can manage risk and avoid harm.
We will explore the latest guidelines on screen time, screen use and the pitfalls to be aware of.
