Courses for parents / carers

123 Magic 

Specifically created for families with children aged 2 to 12 by Thomas W. Phelan PhD.  Our 1-2-3 Magic courses have been developed especially for children and young people with challenging  behaviour. We all know that for our children, you need a different kind of approach to managing behaviour, so this is a great opportunity to learn some different techniques, where you’ll be guided through step by step, with support from one another and a member of our team.  1-2-3 Magic is not easy but it is simple and practical. We will guide you through to ensure that you are able to put in to practice the easy to follow steps for disciplining your children without arguing, shouting or getting upset. 

These are all daytime courses, usually over two sessions. They usually run from  9.30am to 2.30pm.
