"Working with Madeleine has been such a great experience. I had been struggling a lot with my 2 year old's behaviour, mostly with his physically intense tantrums and need for control. I felt really alone and completely unsure of how to deal with it all in a loving way. Techniques like time outs and ignoring the behaviour were just not working and seemed counter productive to my desire to build a good relationship with my son.
 
I found Madeleine via Facebook and set up an initial consultation with her. She immediately put me at ease, explained that my son's behaviour was actually a very normal reaction to losing control (especially in the covid era!) and gave me the tools to deal with the behaviour. We ended up doing several sessions and talked much more about my reaction to my son's behaviour and my mindset when dealing with him than anything else, which was a real game changer. She guided me with insightful questions and an insatiably bubbly and positive outlook which always boosted me up to face the next week ahead.
 
Both Ben's behaviour and my relationship with him changed for the better. Naturally there are still challenges, but I know Madeleine is always there to help. I would highly recommend reaching out to her if you are having difficulties with your strong willed child's behaviour or you just want to actually enjoy parenting again!" - Philippa

Madeleine's story

When Madeleine first came to work with me her daughter had frequent angry outbursts that meant Madeleine had stopped leaving the house with both her children. Now, Madeleine says "she is a much calmer and happier child and her ability to manage her emotions is improving by the day. I am a more confident and relaxed mum and it feels great to know that the children are getting the best version of me!"

"At the point of coming to Madeleine for help with our daughter, my husband and I were feeling completely exhausted and helpless with her behaviour. For the six months leading up to this point, it seemed she was completely unable to deal with her emotions and having (what seemed to us) completely irrational outbursts numerous times a day. When she became angry or frustrated she would display physical and verbal aggression which we felt unable to deal with. In addition, she had developed obsessive behaviour around wearing as many clothing layers as possible. At this point we felt completely trapped, I had stopped leaving the house with both children out of fear of emotional outbursts and my husband was routinely taking time out of his work to help. We knew we couldn’t go on in this way. A friend of mine then recommended Madeleine and from the first session I knew this was going to be a really positive step for us.

 

Madeleine taught us to consider our daughter’s behaviour in a completely different way and to start seeing things from her perspective. By making small changes to our routine, offering her more control and autonomy and ensuring clear boundaries are in place, we have seen a huge change in her behaviour. There is a marked difference in the way she reacts in various situations which would preciously have upset her. Madeleine has also helped me to remain calm in stressful situations with my daughter. This ‘reprogramming’ of my thoughts has been fundamental in achieving a more peaceful life for us all. My daughter has just started school and although she still has difficult moments sometimes, she is a much calmer and happier child and her ability to manage her emotions is improving by the day. In turn, I am a more confident and relaxed mum and it feels great to know that the children are getting the best version of me!! 

 

Madeleine has always made me feel reassured and safe. I have looked forward to our sessions so much and I’m so grateful for the open and honest space she provides. I have always felt really supported by her and the weekly boost she gave me saw me through each week, fully equipped to deal with any challenges that came my way. As well as our weekly sessions, she was on hand if needed for those SOS days when I just needed an email or phone call for reassurance. I know that every day cannot be perfect, but when I have a tricky day I have the tools needed to stay positive and calm." - Madeleine
