"Sophie's 1:1 sessions have helped me to make sense of my son's behaviour and she has come up with some creative and playful ways to ease him through his worries. What's more, she has offered strategies and support for my own anxieties, which was above and beyond what I expected! Thank you Sophie. I know the parenting road ahead will be a rocky one, but I feel a whole lot readier and steadier with you there to guide me."
Parent, One-to-One Parent Support
What are these sessions for?
These sessions are to discuss any wellbeing issues in your family life that you feel you need to share, explore and reflect on. It will help you to develop an understanding of the situation you are in and support your response. Examples of family matters that arise include children who are struggling to leave the house, children feeling anxious when leaving for school, parents feeling unable to cope with a child's strong emotions or limiting a child's screen time. If it falls under the wellbeing umbrella then it is likely we can help
What if you can't help with what I want to discuss?
We will be able to tell you before your session whether the things you want to discuss are something we can work on. Please email us if you are unsure as to if the sessions will benefit you. If we feel we can't help then we'll direct you to organisations or charities who can hopefully move things forward for you at no cost

How will I join the session?

Can my child attend the session?
It depends on the issues we are discussing and the age of the child. Older children are more able to be involved in the conversation and it is good to discuss your family wellbeing journey with them. Small children are unlikely to participate in an online conversation but we do have lots of Kids Clubs should you feel they need some activity for their wellbeing. If you are unsure I would advise joining your initial session without children and we can decide if they would benefit from joining future sessions
Who will be taking our online session?
The Founder of Mindfulness for learning takes all parent one-to-one sessions. You can find out more about Sophie Smith-Tong here
Is this a therapy session?
No, this is not a therapy session. Although Sophie is experienced and knowledgable when it comes to the wellbeing of families and educators it is important to mention that she is not a trained GP, counsellor, therapist, psychologist or psychiatrist. If you are worried about your child's mental health please seek advice from your GP. You can read our guide of what to expect when you visit your GP about your child's mental health here.
