Welcome to Child Behaviour Solutions Ltd

Child Behaviour Solutions Ltd believes that every family has the right to be just that – a family.  As a family, you should feel strong, confident and supported.  As a parent, you want to guide your child through life; as a professional you want to support parents as they guide their children.

When you first become a parent, you are full of anticipation about what the future might bring. But what if it isn’t quite what you thought?

Bringing up a child with with additional needs, can sometimes lead to a difficult and stressful home life – with a child’s challenging behaviours causing a disruptive home-life; it might feel like the child is in control of everything that happens in the home and as a parent, you may feel at a loss and unsupported.

We want to help you find the balance, understand the needs of your child, boost your confidence as a parent and provide you with strategies to manage any behaviour difficulties.  We see our job as coaching you through the struggles, and identifying what life may be like, especially for a child with additional needs such as autism spectrum conditions or anxiety.

At Child Behaviour Solutions Ltd, we specialise in working with families of children with additional needs such as autism spectrum conditions, as well as those who are anxious or angry and find life is just a bit too much for them sometimes.

Parents tell us they would like answers to their questions about the causes of challenging behaviour and disrupted family life. We understand the feelings of frustration and isolation felt by both parents and children – we’re here to listen and to help.

Who Are Child Behaviour Solutions Ltd?

Hello, we’re Colette Etheridge (Owner) and Theresa Smith (Lead Consultant) of Child Behaviour Solutions Ltd. We’re a professionally qualified team and our aims are:

~ To build effective working relationships with parents and families
~ To help them to share their experiences
~ To offer support and advice where requested.

The services we offer are unique because we help parents to understand the reason behind it before trying to help manage behaviour – we encourage you join your child’s world to understand their behaviour, rather than asking them to join our world, which they might find confusing and difficult.

Our support hub sessions focus on topics that parents find useful, such as supporting a child with anxiety, sleep concerns, understanding autism and supporting a child with ADHD. These are just a few of the topics that we are qualified and able to help with – please get in touch with any suggestions or requests for sessions focusing on other areas.

“Very helpful in understanding the reasons why”

Our services include support hub sessions for parents throughout Gloucestershire, practical workshops for professionals working with children on the autistic spectrum (through specialist social skills groups) and a call out service for families in times of crisis.

Child Behaviour Solutions Ltd empowers, enables and supports families of children with additional needs in Gloucester, Stroud, Cheltenham, the Forest of Dean and the Cotswolds.
