Exciting news! 6 of the our Everlief team have got their heads together and the result is a new book! Maybe your primary school aged child is struggling to live life to the full. Perhaps worries are holding them back? Maybe they are finding friendships tricky? Maybe teachers have raised concerns that something is getting in the way of your child being happy or fulfilling their potential at school? The team of clinical psychologists guide you through exactly what to do, from figuring out the roots of the problem, to making and reviewing a manageable plan of action. Each chapter follows the same approach and contains focused, tried and tested strategies that are practical and are focused on the areas of concern. You will be encouraged to consider changes which could make a big difference.
