GCSE and A Level/IB examinations are stressful – not just for the student taking them, but for the whole family. As a parent you want to support your child as best you can, but often it’s hard to know what to do to help. As a psychologist, teacher and parent I can offer you guidance and practical advice on simple strategies you can use to support your child and get you all through this experience in one piece!

This is a group for parents, who have children in secondary education, to learn, share ideas and resources, and ask questions about getting through the trials and tribulations of secondary education. Though based in South Oxfordshire we welcome parents from across the UK.
It is run by Lucinda Powell and Helen Neary both Psychology Teachers who offer parents and students a wide range of support such as Coaching, anxiety management, study skills support and much more.
Sometimes you just need to speak to someone who 'gets it', who can help you ask the right questions, help you find the right support, or just be next to you in a meeting. Having travelled this journey both professionally and personally Lucinda is able to offer support to parents on a one off or on-going basis. To find out more book in for a chat.
'I think it helps you prepare for the coming year and really improves your understanding of GCSEs. Also I think lots of people struggle when it comes to revising and this course shows you many techniques to cope with that.'
'The information I have learnt will be so useful to use for my exams, and will definitely be vital to revision, exam preparation and how to make the most of the resources offered. '
'It has made me feel more prepared for revision in the future.'
'I enjoyed your style and approach. The content reinforced a lot of what I already knew but had forgotten or overlooked - it helped me to take a step back. I found focusing on what you can influence/control a good reminder.'
'Very useful to understand how the teenage brain works and how this affects behaviour around screen use.
