Alicia Drummond runs www.teentips.co.uk.
She is a BACP accredited therapist, parent coach, speaker, author and, most importantly, a mother.
She works with over a hundred schools delivering talks and workshops to help parents, staff and pupils deepen their understanding of adolescence and promote emotional health and wellbeing.
She is the in-house mental health expert for School Notices and the in-house parenting specialist for the CQC clinic Esher Groves.
“At Teen Tips, we believe that when teachers and coaches, and parents and carers work together to promote strong self-esteem and emotional resilience, teenagers are better able to resist peer pressure, make healthy choices for themselves and overcome the inevitable challenges of life in the 21st Century.”
We talk helping parents create a healthy environment for teenagers, why the teenage brain is not naturally ‘wired’ for revision, and the importance of an end goal to help with motivation.
We also talked about how we can all stay sane while cooped up together for the next few months… ?
