MA, Assoc CIPD

My professional background is in Human Resources with learning and development and coaching. My degree was in English Literature and I am never far from a good book or several.

I have seen the power of stories to improve my children's social behaviour and how much happier that has made them.

Your child's story should be a good one - let's make it happen.

OUR STORY

No Talking In Class

_Many shy people have an inner peace tha

For most parents, the words "Your child has been talking in class" would be a negative - but not for me. I vividly remember going to my first ever parents evening at school. We'd had three week's worth of nice notes in the home link book like "Good day today". So I was expecting something very positive from the teacher... But it turned out that my daughter Frankie, was not speaking at all. The teacher thought she had no speech! I admit this wasn't completely out of the blue, my Frankie was what self-help books call 'slow to warm up' and Granny would call 'shy'. But this was clearly a problem we had to fix right now.

So in panic I went to Dr Helen for professional psychology advice and we made our first 'Fearless Fairy' book to demonstrate the things our Frankie needed to do at school. She was a trouper and worked so hard at the techniques. I am thrilled to say that she is now often found 'talking in class'. It is something I never take for granted. 

We knew that we shouldn't keep this to ourselves because there were many other Frankies out there who would benefit from a little bit of help with the huge challenges of childhood.
