“We must be the change we wish to see in the world.” – Mahatma Gandhi
There comes a time in everyone’s life when we feel the need to change old patterns and habits. It begins with peacefully loving ourselves and our children first.
If you want to change, I will offer you a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness approach which integrates a holistic model to match your unique needs. As you can see by reading my articles, the therapeutic interventions I use are backed up by neuroscientific research. I will work with you in a non-judgmental, honest and respectful way to help you and/or your child make those changes that you both may struggle with. My primary goal is for you as an adult to become truly inspired to develop mindfulness in your everyday life. I will help you to initiate a deliberate cultivation of self-awareness and self-acceptance which, if you are willing to practice, can ultimately lead to a deep sense of wholeness and self-worth.
Thanks again for everything and I'm so glad I got in touch with you, you've made a huge difference to me and my family and to my mother who you helped years ago.- JW

Thank you for all your support and help during the stressful times earlier this year which I feel I have now overcome.

New Perspectives on Parenting
I created an innovative Parent Training model, called New Perspectives, for parents with special needs children. I offer this via face-to face, phone or Skype sessions which make it possible to have one-off consultations, a series of coaching sessions, or a parenting course wherever you live in the world. This obviously saves money and time spent on arranging childcare and travelling expenses.
I also provide training, insets and workshops for local schools, businesses, and authorities in the greater London area.
