Happy New Year!
For me, and for many others who spend their work or study time in schools, the New Year has always begun in September rather than January. It is now that I open my crisp clean diary and start adding dates, it is now I start thinking ahead and it is now that new plans and ideas begin to take shape.
So what is new for 2016-2017? My parent workshops will continue, my consultancy work will continue, my work with schools will continue, and there are some new writing projects in the pipeline, so the biggest changes for this coming year are that I am developing workshops for children and young people in central locations (i.e. not in schools) and some longer courses for parents. If you are interested in any of these don't hesitate to get in touch or subscribe to my mailing list to be notified as soon as details are finalised.
I have had more parents than ever before contacting me about transition from primary to secondary school over the summer, with many children becoming distressed by change. If your child will be moving at the end of this year it is never too soon to start preparing them for a happy and confident new start. Look out for courses next term or get in touch for tailor-made support.
