"My child's emotional and physical meltdowns were wearing me to the ground"

"Whilst I love my son with all my heart, his constant meltdowns, both emotional and physical were wearing me into the ground."

She is life-changing. Before Katherine arrived I remember thinking that there would be no way she’d be able to fix all the challenges I had with my son, so made a list, prioritising the issues I felt had to be worked on. I felt even that this list was a mountain and prepared myself, thinking that we would not be able to tackle everything in the 3 days she was with us. Whilst I love my son with all my heart, his constant meltdowns, both emotional and physical were non-stop and it was wearing me into the ground.

I found myself treading on eggshells to save myself from outbursts and was always trying to plan ahead to ensure things ran ‘smoothly’ – which they never would. It was mentally draining and I felt I couldn’t carry on. I felt my exhaustion trying to cope was affecting my ability to be a mother and the fun, loving relationship I had with my son was crumbling away. We were both tense and irritable 24/7 and it was no way to live. I remember thinking the only way this would work was if Katherine was my fairy godmother – she must have invisible wings!


Take Control of Your Family Home

From our initial chat, before even meeting, she was able to assess our situation and explained scenarios as if she already knew us and how we interacted. She gave me tips and tools in manageable, bite-size steps so I was able to easily embark on this transformation. She explained how everything was linked, and scrapped the list as she focused on us as a whole. I didn’t think it would’ve been physically possible to tackle so many issues, but Katherine explained the importance and demonstrated how to take control of the situation as a whole.

Whilst I thought it would’ve been a strange dynamic with her in the house, or my son would’ve put on his ‘best behaviour’ as we had guests, Katherine seems to have the ability to seem invisible and empowered me to independently deal with him, even though she was directing me in the same room! Having her has been an absolute game-changer in addressing my daily challenging issues and I just wish I’d found her sooner! Her expertise was evident in the seamless way she integrated these techniques into our daily routine, creating a structured and supportive environment for both of our development. Once the three days were over, I was dreading Katherine’s departure and thought all the hard work would go to waste as we returned to our old routine.


Maintaining a Dialogue After the Home Visit

She maintained an open dialogue via WhatsApp and phone calls asking to be kept informed about the progress and challenges encountered. This ensured I was able to continue applying the strategies even when she wasn’t present and she was always on hand when I was unsure of how to handle a situation. What I would say is that I didn’t realise what hard work (at least for me) the change would be. It is an intense time, that I was not prepared for, but the outcomes are worth more than anything – Katherine’s impact on my family has been nothing short of transformative and I could never thank her enough.

The days that Katherine stayed with us were the most eye-opening I have ever had into what real parenting should look like and having her to turn to for constant support and validation (both during her stay and long after) as we embarked on change enabled us to see it through.

Katherine gave me the tools and the confidence to take back the control, reclaim my own time and space and reset the household to a calm space for us all to enjoy.

As a Muslim family, we debated about asking a non-family member to stay and assist with our children...the difference in our children was instant, we cannot put a price on the difference that has been made.
