Supportive Services

Here at NETwork Interventions, we believe that accessing supportive services under one umbrella is key to success.

Our aim is to develop services for your whole family so as you can thrive individually, as a family unit, and within the community.

The supportive services that we currently offer under the NETwork Umbrella are:

Counselling

We offer counselling services to individuals, couples and whole families, from teens to no upper age limit! We also offer Christian counselling to those who it may be relevant through www.kadayer.co.uk.

Behavioural Counselling

It is not just children with additional needs who benefit from behavioural intervention services. We offer behavioural counselling services to individuals, couples and whole families to help you set goals and achieve them, from your relationships to your careers. The goal is to give you concrete tools you can apply to improving your life and maintaining balance, while you work toward success for yourself and your family.

This would typically work by having a series of one to one sessions with the behaviour analyst most suited to you. So it looks like traditional counselling, but you are an active participant in the process.

Sibling Support

Siblings are faced with unique challenges, when living in a home with a brother or sister who has additional needs. We offer services to siblings so they can learn their strengths and what makes them unique and special, how to communicate their needs and wants to their parents and how to interact with their sibling is a positive way. We also work through the unique struggles they may be facing due to having a sibling with additional needs.

Parent Support Group

We run a parent support group in Surrey, UK, for those families who have children with additional needs. This is a free service and you do not need to make an ongoing commitment. Each month we have a different topic and are able to give advice and guidance in different areas, while connecting you with other families who are going through experiences similar to yours.

We have firm ties with various organisations within the community, both government and private. If you know of an organisation whom you feel would benefit from our expertise, or from whom our families would benefit, please do get in touch with us and let us know.

"Our son was diagnosed with Asperger’s aged 7; NETwork Interventions spent a day observing him at school and at home and quickly identified the skills he was lacking – skill deficits that we - and others working with our son - had not picked up on. NETwork Interventions trained us to help our son learn those missing skills. The results have been remarkable – he no longer cries about going to school, his concentration and behaviour are much better and he is far less likely to alienate others by the things he says. Thank you."

"It is always a pleasure talking to Lu and Shelley - we think they are superstars!"

"We started an informal intervention for our 18 month old last week, Zack. Lu came for an observation around a month ago. This was followed by Shelley spending two days with our family last week. Our 18 month old had three signs and plenty of motivation and social intent, but no requests for items or people. He had a few unintelligible requests for activities and just sounds or unintelligible words for when he labels things. We have done our research. As professionals in the field of child development and with ASD and ADHD in our extended family, we know that it is better to act earlier rather than later. We didn’t want a heavy or burdensome programme for reasons of time, of finance and also of emotion. Admitting there may be a problem is actually very difficult. Last week was extremely draining emotionally in this capacity. We know that prevention is necessary as there is no firm cure and we can’t take the risk of not intervening and waiting another six months as our GP and Paediatrician told us. Shelley came to the farm with us, came swimming with us, to the park and to granny and grandpa’s home with us. She did day to day life with us such as bath time and bed time. The first day Shelley watched what life was like for me, balancing home, children, marriage and work. Life is hectic. The second day we swapped roles and she put recommendations in acting as I would and then supported me to implement it. She is coming back on Thursday to see how we are getting on and she is returning with a new schedule for me after going away to analyse it these last few days. We are absolutely thrilled with Zack’s progress already. His Gymboree teachers commented on his language ‘explosion’. His aunty, who does not know that we are running this intervention, commented on how much Zack is talking this week. I am confident that within a few months, Zack will not have a spiky developmental profile and it looks as though he will have even more skills than his peers at this rate. This is fun and I am so grateful to Shelley, Lu and Ruth who, together, have created the ‘perfect programme’ for us."

"This week I have been feeling very defeated with my son changing campuses at school. At the end of my call with Shelley I was filled with hope again. That is why I love our calls. Not simply because of the work with my son, but because Shelley always helps me to see a way forward. "
Gem, Brisbane

"I have had previous counselling for over two years but left because of no progress. I am finding the experience with Liz different in a very positive way. After just four sessions I am seeing great progress."

"The observation and assessment period that NETwork complete at the beginning is difficult to understand at the outset, but it turns out that it is an intricate process that [does] indeed find the issues to work on and subsequently address and resolve."
Mum, Quebec

"Dillan had significant behavioural issues and received a very late diagnosis of NVLD when he was 9 years old. This diagnosis did little to help our family. Louise quickly and efficiently set up a programme for our teenage son which rapidly identified his strengths and weaknesses. Shelley taught us and his teachers how to best address these, including language deficits which had previously remained unrecognised, Louise’s team worked within our budget, working hours and extensive travel commitments, working closely with school and our local authority to ensure everybody was on board and funding accessed. At times it felt as though Louise was coordinating a small army. Additional support of parent-counselling through Louise’s team proved invaluable, even though we were originally a little sceptical. It most likely made the difference between success and failure in our ability as parents to sustain a positive family unit whilst implementing the programme. We worked with NETwork Interventions for just under one year."
Dr Edwards, North London

"We would like to say a massive thank you for your hard work during the 2 day assessment. We are so grateful and highly impressed with your level of knowledge, confidence, professionalism as well as the kindness and respect shown to our family. Now, we really believe there is light at the end of the tunnel."
