Our Services

Triple P positivie parenting programme

Triple P - Positive Parenting Programme®

These parenting courses are about helping married, separated or foster parents before they reach the end of their tether. Together, we can help you as a parent to achieve a balance between your own needs & the needs of your child, between love & affection and rules & boundaries. All courses are delivered live online via Zoom or Whatsapp.

Separation Parenting Plan

Separation Parenting Plan

Save time & money by getting your separation parenting plan in place before court. We meet each parent individually (online) so you never have to. Let us help you deal with the emotional trauma of separation first before negotiating terms of communication, maintenance & access on your behalf. Emotions first, better decisions later. The course is delivered live online via Zoom or Whatsapp

Section 32 Report The Voice of the child

Section 32 Report- The Voice of the Child

Since January 2016, under the Children and Family Relationships Act, in cases such as custody, access, divorce and separation, courts are obliged to hear the voice of the child, provided he or she can express an opinion. The child’s views can be heard by talking with a “child expert” such as myself who has over fifteen years social care experience working directly with children & teenagers. I am a registered member of Social Care Ireland.

My Experience

I have over fifteen years’ experience of working directly with children & families who were experiencing difficult behaviours. This experience includes working in Garda Youth Diversion Programmes, Outreach Programmes, Behavioural Early Intervention Support & residential care of children with difficult behaviours (ages 10 – 17).

Over seven years’ experience of working with separating couples & helping them save time & money by working on an agreed separation plan (separately) before it gets to court.

Voluntary experience with young people –Foroige & Scouting Ireland.

 

I’m a parent myself. Not a perfect parent, not a terrible parent but a good enough parent.

Effective Guidance

On its own, participating in any course is ineffective. What is effective, however, is putting some of what you have learned during our time together into everyday action. We will ensure that you fully understand these key learnings, you only receive guidance specific to your own situation & you have an effective plan to make your life a little easier before completion.

Our positive testimonials are independent & verify the effectiveness of our services and our qualifications include:

Qualifications in Social Care, Youth & Community Work – UCC

These qualifications provide a framework for dealing with the challenging issues facing young people & their families in Ireland.
