On this page we’ll tell you the kind of results you can achieve, the approaches he uses and in what ways Nigel is unique.
- Schools that work with Nigel can expect a higher level of parent involvement and engagement. A greater sense of a team approach to their students’ education
- Parents will have a toolbox of practical motivational methods at their fingertips. They will feel empowered and equipped to get their child on the move again.
- Young people won’t just have a career option but a 1,3 and 5 year plan to make it a reality. Plus a greater understanding of who they are and what makes them tick
- Everyone who attends Nigel’s seminar about online safety and/or purchases one of his booklets will feel better equipped to face the online challenges of today’s world.
Nigel’s approach is based on:
- Every young person is precious. From time to time certain young people react negatively to the stresses of life – some say they “do stupid stuff”. Even so, they are human beings of immense value and probably just need an extra arm around their shoulder.
- Parenting isn’t always easy. in fact it seems that parenting is becoming more complex every generation. “When I was their age…” life was easier (different but not as stressed). Getting help is no longer a sign of weakness but quite the opposite.
- Society places a (too?) high demand on schools. Of course education is a school’s primary concern but they also need to be social workers, counsellors, advisors and sometimes substitute parents. Teachers are expected to perform beyond their original training – hence the need to bring in outside experts.
Bottom line is that Nigel cares. You are more important than any preconceived programs. They will provide a framework but your unique needs are paramount. You will feel accepted, listened to, valued and served well.
