“Each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Tolstoy

Pathway Process for Children and Teens

Does this sound like your family?

One unhappy and troubled child takes up most of the available attention and energy in the family.

You can no longer see with any clarity what is going on for that child; the tangled web has become knotted and dense. You suspect certain causes and reasons but the whole issue has become inflamed and tricky to talk about.

You don’t see your child any more; only their unhappiness and despair and the symptoms of their  unhappiness: anxiety, self-harming, OCD, ticks, anger outbursts, isolation and perhaps refusing to go to school.


If you can identify with any of the above, you are definitely in the right place

I want you to know that you are not alone, and blaming yourself and feeling guilty won’t help your family.

I come across this all the time in my work with families and I’ve been there myself too. As parents we often struggle to help our children and teenagers because we hurt so much for them.

Being the parent of an unhappy child can cause chronic stress and the saying that ‘you are only as happy as your unhappiest child’ is only too true.

There is no escaping the pain and nothing really numbs knowing that your child is deeply unhappy.


But I have a solution for you!

Our daughter attended the Pathway Process and my main concern was if it would work. Now I feel it is the best money I have ever spent and I would be happy to stand up and shout about it!

We’ve seen a significant improvement in our daughter’s behaviour, attitude and engagement with her friends & family and I can 100% recommend this process to other parents.

Our daughter engaged completely, now feels in control of herself and has tools to help her manage. We all have better relationships and are happier and more positive. We can now do the simple things together as a family like sharing meals and watching tv. I think the Process is brilliant and definitely worth the investment.

The work 

Each family will have a unique tailored process designed to meet their needs and family situation, resulting in sustained and lasting change.

Your child will transform the emotional baggage that is weighing so heavily on them and you will be freed from the constant firefighting, getting your child and your peace of mind back.

This work is not about removing symptoms, its about going to the root of the symptoms and removing them. This means that the results are ‘forever’ results

Your child will feel good in their own skin and have their old energy and vitality back. In fact they will be more than their old selves; they will be empowered and feel stronger. They’ll have tools and skills to find their wings and fly.

The work is a 3-way process between you, your child and myself. You will never be excluded, which does happen in some other therapeutic processes

You will be able to measure progress, be encouraged to communicate about it and you will see real and tangible results quickly.

You will notice a positive change in your child even after the very first session.

Before my 14 year old worked with Inger he was so focussed on getting the highest marks at school that he consistently over-achieved.

That may not sound like a problem, but it was interfering with being 14, having fun and getting a proper night’s sleep.

Now he is able to set his priorities much better and produce work that is good, without being degree-level!

Further benefits are that he’s happier, more relaxed and also goes with the flow more – which makes things easier for us as a family.

All the sessions took place online and I was impressed with how easy that was and how well it worked. We live a 2 hours drive from Inger’s and it made it so much easier to fit these sessions in. Inger was also flexible with her availability which helps with a busy after-school schedule.

Would you like to know more? 

Apply for a no obligation WayForward Consultation and get all your questions answered. It’s completely free of charge. I will find out all I need to offer you the right solution for your circumstances. I’ll give you my best recommendations for moving forward so your family can start feeling happy again. 


Unique to you

There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ to the kind of problems families struggle with. The work will be personalised to you, your family and your individual needs.

We will work together so that the process meets the needs of your child, your family and your circumstances.


As a direct result of the sessions he had with Inger, my son is a happier calmer child and now has the ability to talk me through what emotions he’s feeling in that moment, instead of the dreadful outbursts of anger and despair and anxiety he previously had.

I don’t work with everyone

I can only work with a limited number of one-to-one clients to be able to give you the level of support you need. To make sure this is the right solution for you, I invite you to a 60 minute no obligation WayForward Consultation.

On the call we’ll get to chat and see if we’re a good fit.

If at the end of the consultation, I feel my services are not a good fit for you then I’ll let you know. And if I feel I can help, I’ll let you know how.

The purpose of this valuable call is to help you get clarity about what I offer and how I work, and for me to understand your family dynamic and where things have gone awry. It is important that you choose the right person for your child as they often only give us one chance to find them help.

Our 14 year old daughter’s anxieties were not only affecting her mental health but also her physical health and she had lost her sparkle.

Inger has brought that sparkle back and I can honestly say that my daughter is totally transformed. Her physical problems have all cleared up and she is enjoying life again.

And when you do decide to go ahead you will be totally covered by my Wise Investment Guarantee.

Wise Investment Guarantee

If at the end of our first month working together your child has attended all the sessions and taken all the steps they committed to, and you are not 100% satisfied, I guarantee to give you a full refund of any payments made up to that point.

I offer this level of guarantee because I am 100% committed to my work and my reputation, I want you to feel equally confident that you are investing your time and money wisely.

What Next?

If you have tried other services you will be surprised at the real and tangible results you can get in a short time working with me. Innovative and empowering energy psychology tools will get to the heart of the unhappiness and trouble without having to re-live the ‘story’.

The WayForward Consultation is a 60 minute telephone or Zoom chat. There’s no cost and no obligation.

You have nothing to lose but your stress and worry.

Below are 3 case studies to help you understand more of the process and the work that I do.

Sophie on being bullied

The change in Sophie was gradual and I feel really bad now that I didn’t spot what was going on much earlier.

When I look back the signs were definitely there. She changed so much. She became downright horrible to me and to her younger sister….
