Who facilitates T2? I do - sort of. T2 belongs to all of its members, and, really, we all facilitate it.

Support for School Students

Own your learning

Through a series of 1:1 coaching  sessions, I work with you and/or your child to

  • see the moments in your child's life when they are owning their learning and find ways to create many more of those strong, self-confident times both within and outside of their school setting

  • explore ways to improve their school experience

  • look at diagnoses like ADHD and Anxiety in a new way

  • discuss alternate schooling options if needed

  • move into a position of confidence in and ownership for your child's education
