Camilla and her course were recommended by a colleague at work…. I have learnt that my daughter's behaviour was a reaction to how she was being treated, and all the emotions behind it. With Camilla 's experience and guidance I learnt how to be connected with my daughter and encourage her in a positive way. Within two weeks I noticed the changes and how good she was responding to all techniques learnt. I am so delighted to see my daughter shining and willing to help without being asked to. Our course lasted five weeks, which went so quick and I could not be more grateful to Camilla and her help. Carol from Worthing - mum of a nearly 5 y/o and 1 y/o girls.

Frustrated by shortcomings in the tuition sector, Henry Faber and Walter Kerr founded Oppidan to tackle the pressurised, anxiety-driven education market in London. The result has been two-fold: the expansion of the concept of mentoring as the new, improved form of one-on-one support for children, and the creation of the US model of summer camps in the UK.
Oppidan works with children, parents and schools, changing expectations for children as to the value of their education.
Outspoken Sex Ed is a social enterprise that focuses on getting parents talking openly about sex, bodies, consent, pleasure & relationships so they can guide their children towards self-respect and positive relationships.
The premise: parents are the missing link in their children's sex education – and their engagement helps with safeguarding, improves mental health and strengthens the parent-child connection.
Our free homeschooling lessons for ages 4 to 11+ and ages 11 to 16+ bring sex & relationships to the table via drawing activities, cartoons, video clips and even a living-room treasure hunt.
They're a great way to normalise sex ed topics such as body image, body safety, consent, sexting and porn – and to get parents and children talking openly together.

Connections in Mind are a highly motivated team of experts committed to supporting executive function development in both children, adolescents, education providers and adults. Executive functions are a set of skills that reside in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. These skills help us to plan and organise our responses, behaviour and emotions. These skills have a profound impact on children’s educational success, act as a strong indicator on educational outcomes during adolescence and promote health and success in adulthood.
The core Executive Functioning (EF) skills include planning, prioritising, working memory, sustained attention, flexibility, emotional control and time management. These skills are critical not only for success in school, but for typical tasks in everyday life.
