Specialist Teaching Henley on Thames

Specialist Skills & Learning Techniques

Getting children excited about learning and realising that every child can learn but, just not in the same way. Mistakes are proof that you/we/they are trying to learn. I believe that if a child can’t learn the way we teach then we should teach the way they learn.

I provide specialist teaching for all abilities and key skills, providing a highly individualised learning programme using a variety of strategies and interventions.

It can be truly engaging for children and convenient for parents.

My focus is on All ages up to Yr 8.

Helping children feel happy, safe & Loved

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (known as CBT) is a talking therapy designed to help people manage their problems by changing the way they think and behave.

Children can experience difficulties in much the same way as adults, dealing with the pressures of school, exams, sexuality, developing relationships and family life.

Delivering therapy for children of all ages, I can help them move forward with their lives and feel happier, more confident and more comfortable when communicating with their others.

Non Directive Play

Explore a sense of personal control, something they feel they have little opportunity to do. By understanding this concept they can take responsibility for their emotions and actions. To consider other people’s feelings and preferences and to think from different perspectives. Promote empathetic skills such as listening.


To promote a sense of self esteem, identify their strengths and preferences, their achievements and aspirations, the people and things they value. When children understand what causes strong emotional reactions, they are better to manage their feelings in an appropriate way.

Emotional, Social and Mental Support

Define and identify their emotions and feelings, expanding their emotional vocabulary beyond the basic ‘happy’, ‘sad’ or ‘angry’. More complex feelings such as jealousy, pride and embarrassment are explored and children are encouraged to define these feelings both in words and drawings through personal experience.
