Private Parent Support

"Parenting is hard, which is why we are here to support you. I've worked with families for over 20 years, holding a safe non-judgmental space for them to explore their child's behaviour, wellbeing, and their parenting. I endeavour to empower and support...how I wish I'd of had that when my own children were younger."

Jennifer Wyman, Parenting Lead

"I have attended several Bridge the Gap events and workshops (Alone and with my 8 year old son) and always find them to be helpful and reassuring. We have both taken away ideas and skills which help us to cope with the challenges we deal with every day. We often talk about our Bridge the Gap experiences, and it is so good to know that we can contact them at any time, for help, reassurance or signposting to other services. I thoroughly recommend them to anyone!"

Lisa Jane

"Absolutely AMAZING, I'd still be feeling lost and helpless if I hadn't of made the move to attend these workshops (understanding anxiety, emotional literacy, parent well-being). Each one I have taken something away from it and have even been able to implement it into mine and my family's daily life to invest in our future. Jen and Nikki are so inspiring, welcoming and exceptionally helpful. Thank you for sharing this information with us as parents, so we can then help our children. Something I will be forever grateful for. Please never stop what you're doing, it's fantastic."
