One Step Further
I'm Linda , a qualified Coach, Mentor, Adult Tutor & Life Skills facilitator. My passion for pastoral care & safeguarding is the thread running throughout my support for families & organisations. I've been working in the community for over 18 years and I am passionate about using my own life skills & experiences to benefit those families who just need a lift up to get back in the saddle. I'm so excited to be part of team who want the best for the families we've yet to meet. It's time to put my coaching, mentoring, organisational and basic counselling skills to good use. Working with children and families can be the most rewarding or the most challenging journey.
In addition to working directly with families, I am happy to talk to organisations who would benefit from support towards:
Coaching, Mentoring & Supervision

Free range forest families
I'm Lea, An Approved Practitioner with the Therapeutic Forest CIC. I completed my Forest School training with Surrey Wildlife Trust early in 2019, and I really enjoy seeing all the benefits of using my therapeutic & nurturing skills with both the children and the families who attend my sessions. I'm passionate about the Forest School ethos, getting our little people outside, back to basics, chilling out and most importantly - having fun.
I'm Tara, A 50 something female who is passionate about supporting families to jump the hurdles that life puts in their path. I'm a Licensed Thrive Practitioner, and I love using this skill on a 1:1 basis and in small groups. I strongly believe that Thrive is an effective way of meeting children's social & emotional needs, and helps us as parents to understand how and why negative behaviour presents itself.
Wellbeing & Wellies
I’m Jackie, I have been working with children under 7 and their grown-ups in many different settings and roles for over 20 years and still loving it.
After completing a Mindfulness course focusing on the key elements of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Life (MBCT-L) … quite a mouthful! I’m really excited to launch my new venture ‘’Wellbeing and Wellies’’ a mindful approach to play.
The art of Mindfulness is my motivation to explore the idea of combining my passion for communication & language with creating support and developmental activities. I know these will encourage engagement by children and their grown-ups through child led play.
I believe that through playing with an openness to discover the here and now children are naturally mindful in the sense that they are intrigued by the world around them. They very much live in the present moment and are not preoccupied with the past or the future. Children often stop to look and explore; maybe at a puddle or a stone on the ground, these simple things will entice them to look more closely and become intrigued.
Let’s take those moments to encourage independent exploration. Promoting a positive kindness towards the world around us, our environment and other people. I am looking forward to interacting with you and your children to explore, discover new experiences and, most importantly have fun together.
I'm Ola, I have a passion for social inclusion and am a strong believer that all children can thrive if supported well. I am a teacher in a special school , a student and a parent of an autistic boy. Caleidoscope was created after I was inspired by my son's different perception of the world and because of my passion to support. I have 20 years of teaching experience, a Mental Health First Aider and trained in Attention Autism, Intensive Interaction, LEGO based therapy, Behaviour that Challenges. My passion is Art as a healing tool and I am a trained coach in Therapeutic Art. I use my teaching skills and autism knowledge to design courses, training sessions and classes for children to raise awareness of autism, promote inclusion and improve mental wellbeing.
