Schools & Education

How we can help

We can help by sharing the load with over stretched educational staff. We can take the burden of addressing the issues that many school children and adolescents have. We can work alongside you in delivering the level of care that children should be entitled to throughout their education and promote your school to an outstanding level of Ofsted grading within personal development, welfare and behaviour.

We are pleased to offer an advisory service to schools along with tailored sessions for any pupils that need extra support and input. This can be delivered through group PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) or individual sessions and covers both Primary and Senior establishments.

We welcome any opportunity to be involved with staff, whether that be through staff meetings, inset days or individual concerns.

 

We will cover…

  • Friendship concerns
  • Confidence, self-esteem and resilience building
  • Sensory difficulties and ASD / ADHD
  • Fear, anxiety and anger issues
  • Family matters

We are also very aware of the pressures and anxieties on parents and carers, when it comes to obtaining the right support and information for their children. So we offer, for the benefit of both parent and school, an advocate service. This enables and provides good clear communication for and from both parties involved. If you feel this would benefit your school or that of your parent/carers then please do get in touch.

Approach and Values

Here at Raindancers we like to do things a little differently, no couches or strict clock watching and certainly no ‘one style fits all!’…Everything we do is bespoke to your situation and need. We commit to you and your family for a minimum of 3 months and we will journey with you as long as you need.

Our values are one of compassion and understanding, addressing not only the mental and physical but often the spiritual too

Child & Family

We give parents/carers and children life tools and confidence to thrive within challenging behaviours and parenting issues. 

Schools & Education

We will individually tailor sessions to bring out the very best in the children (and adults) that we see.

The Parent Perspective Course

What we do

4

My work with children and families is bespoke to your individual needs and is unique in its approach and my main aim within Raindancers is to provide you with in-depth support, mentoring and advice for you are your children. We all know that things generally can’t be fixed overnight and things can take time. So, our premium packages are ideally carried out over a three month period, with a very high level of support and coaching.

Yet, not all areas of concern actually need that amount of intervention and on occasions, a quick beneficial fix is just what’s needed.

Support can be obtained in a variety of ways and are all flexible and based on your need. 

Free half-hour phone consultation

We may have already met or you've been recommended to me by a friend, so now is the time to take the conversation further.

I'm offering you a free half-hour phone consultation and this is a great opportunity for you to voice your concerns with me and tell me a little more of what's going on.

Be assured that you will receive a very understanding ear at the other end of the phone and without judgement.  

If you would like to extend your time to talk, this can be done beforehand at an agreed cost.

Equally, further ongoing consultations can be booked. 

We can either talk via Phone/Skype /Zoom/Facetime and at a time to suit you.

When you choose a Premium Raindancers Package you can be assured of my longterm commitment to you and your family along with associated befits of support.

 Short Interventions of Mentoring. 

Ideal for the child that is struggling with some smaller issues of childhood. Maybe school playground difficulties, feeling anxious over a particular situation, grieving over a loved one or just needing someone to talk to.

 

Parent Advocate. 

For those times when you need an unbiased ear and understanding. To give you support within meetings and to ensure your viewpoint is clearly put across and understood.

 

Family Mediation.

We can have all manner of difficult situations to deal with as families and sadly that can include conflict. As family members you are all too frequently too close to a particular situation and emotions can take over and lead to poor clarity of thought. Having someone to stand in the gap and enable both sides to be heard can be vital in finding the right resolution. Children are often caught in the middle and it can be hard to find the right path for them. Again an unbiased perspective can be the best way forward.
