I have a long history of working with children; having my own four, running a Montessori Nursery School, conducting market research focus groups with children and of course running a successful children's therapy practice.
I say 'successful' because I love the way children change so readily from being hampered by their limiting beliefs to moving forward believing in themselves and having a few back-up strategies to use when they are struggling, which, let's face it, we all do sometimes, don't we?
Sometimes parents prefer to come to me themselves so they can learn how to support their children in whatever they are going through and other times, the children or young people come and learn for themselves.
I regularly run series of sessions for confidence and resilience either individually or in small group workshops, face to face and online, which children and young people often prefer.
I take children as I find them, they are very present and in the moment so we look forward to what they want right now and what's happening to them in their life right now, that they'd like to change.
We don't look back because children seldom remember what they did last week, yet alone, a few years ago unless of course this has been the cause of the problem they face now. Nevertheless, we still work on how they feel right now about this past event.
NLP is all about how what they believe about themselves, their abilities and qualities, can get in the way of what they could achieve. So whether they want to make the school football team, pass the 11+, make more friends or lose weight, there are patterns. The way they process their world will map across different life situations at school, at home, in their sport and with their friends as it does with you. I can detect these patterns that aren't working and find better patterns that they don't even realise they have and get them focused on these more resourceful beliefs.
Essentially therapy with me is fun and an eye-opener for them. We might walk around the garden, do some art and craft, drumming, play some music, whatever it takes for them to feel relaxed and able to share what they want to get from the sessions.
I've written lots of books which you can buy from my website or on Amazon so you might prefer to get a taster of my style and approach, introduce your child or young person to one of my workbooks.
I train parents and teachers in NLP and I run masterclasses for existing practitioners in how to use the techniques with children and young people.

A first chat on the phone or email exchange is a good way to find out whether you think I can help then we can make a face to face appointment
First appointments are an hour and a half and you may stay for at least the first half hour if you like. This costs £85. Subsequent one hour sessions are £65. I recommend three appointments to ensure that the new behaviour becomes well established. After this you can call me at any time for a free session via Skype.
Sometimes I suggest a family session so you can all learn how NLP works together. This is a two hour session and costs £100.
I usually incorporate an activity such as drumming or art and craft into my sessions as I find children talk more freely when they are occupied.
First sessions usually take place in my home where I find children feel relaxed and unpressured and we can go outside, look at the hens, collect objects from the garden to talk about and so on. Subsequent sessions can take place there or at one of the clinics I work from in Marlow, Cobham or Woking.
Lots of parents ask me what they should tell their child or teenager about why they're coming to see me. I suggest you tell them that just like they learn Maths and English at school this is learning about how their mind works, they can learn all about themselves and how they can get more of what they want and less of what they don't want.
