Professional support for toddler's misbehaviour? Recommendations in Wandsworth / Wimbledon / Clapham (therapists etc)?

Postby SouthLondonDaddy » Thu Sep 13, 2018 11:07 am

As per the object. We'd appreciate any recommendations of professionals (therapists, counselors, psychologists , etc.) who might be able to help with the very unruly behaviour of a toddler, ideally, somewhere in Wimbledon, Wandsworth or Clapham. 
Thanks!

Hi South London Daddy, 
I feel your pain. Try The Parent Practice on Thurleigh Road. They have specialists / run a wide variety of classes etc. I know many parents / families who have used them.

Good luck

Thank you both!

I thought the parent practice offered only courses and private consulting sessions for and with adults, not consulting sessions with children, but I'll ask.

Hello South London Daddy

Elaine here from The Parent Practice and I completely get how button pressing it can be with a toddler whose behaviour is unruly and I am guessing you may be spending a lot of time repeating and reminding, cajoling and bribing and then just feeling exasperated with the behaviour.

You are correct in saying we work with the parents only and not the children. We do indeed signpost to other specialists such as speech and language, occupational therapists or educational psychologists if we feel that is needed. However often we say the first bus to get on is the positive parenting one as we must not be too quick to send out children to professionals as often they are left to wonder if anything is wrong with them.

Our philosophy is that we as parents have the biggest impact on our children's behaviour and firstly we need to understand their temperament and needs and then know how to get the best out of them and often it's case that we tend to spend more time on the behaviour we don't like and inadvertently our toddler trains us beautifully to give lots of lovely attention to the poor behaviour. All children are hard wired to get attention from us!

Happy to have a discovery call with you to see if we are the right people to support you -if that sounds of interest just email admin@theparentpractice.com and Hilary can set up a call

All the best Elaine and the TPP team

Hi Southlondondaddy, we are currently using Kathryn Mewes (the bespoke nanny http://bespokenanny.com), to help us with our three year old’s behaviour. She is local and was recommended to us by another family who had used her. We are half way through the process but I really like her and hopeful we are going to see improvement.

We couldn't recommend Anne-Marie Catterall more! She has been brilliant with us when we had anger management issues with our child when he was younger and recently she helped us work through some self esteem issues. She is lovely and very approachable and our son really loved sessions with her. You can contact her on 077 8385 7845 or more details: http://www.achippp.org.uk/directory/psychologist/439
