Monthly Coffee Morning

Welcome to our monthly Coffee Morning, hosted via Zoom, specifically designed for parents and carers of children with a Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) profile (with or without a diagnosis).

This regular gathering offers a nurturing and secure environment where parents can connect and exchange experiences. Limited to 20 participants per session, our aim is to ensure everyone feels fully supported.

Our Coffee Morning serves as a refuge where parents can share their journeys and find solace among peers who understand the unique challenges of PDA. Whether you’re seeking guidance, offering empathy, or simply looking to off-load, these sessions are open to all families navigating the intricacies of demand avoidance in their daily lives.

What Others Have Said:

“I always enjoy zoom sessions with Tracy and her guest speakers; they’re always informative without being preachy and are completely non-judgemental. She has such insight and empathy as to the needs of the children – and adults – that we’re trying to help and a huge part of this is questioning what ‘help’ is needed in the first place, and how this can be delivered in a meaningful and non-damaging way.” Pauline, Google Review

“A great way to get the help and support needed when we were having a bad time with our son. Great to meet other parents in similar circumstances.” Shane, Google Review

“Tracy provides specific feedback on issues that parents in our position face, but also very meaningful emotional support in a safe space. You can share your experiences and concerns with no fear of judgement and every expectation of sympathy and support. Thank you Tracy!” Mandy, Google Review

The Host – Tracy Chadwick

Tracy is an experienced mainstream and SEND teacher and somatic practitioner, specialising in supporting children with social and emotional needs.

Motivated by her passion to integrate therapeutic interventions into mainstream practices, Tracy established the Child Therapy Service CIC. Her mission is to offer alternative approaches beyond conventional talk-based therapies, addressing the diverse needs of society.

Tracy proudly identifies as neurodivergent, a perspective that enriches her practice with a unique outlook. Through her inclusive approach to psychoeducation, she integrates educational principles with somatic techniques within a neurodivergent-affirming lens, creating training programmes and resources designed to address the holistic developmental needs of the whole child.

She is the proud author of the Bounce Approach (a Polyvagal-informed model) and the Whole Child Framework, which underpin everything you will find on this site.
