Hello, I am Dr Maryhan, an experienced psychologist and parenting expert, as well as a mother of two. For over 15 years I have been supporting children, teens, and young adults struggling with low confidence and anxiety.
You might think my role involves a lot of telling people what to do, that I have a magic route map for success and happiness. However, what I have become surer of over the years is that the right route map differs wildly from one family to another. My job is therefore focused on helping and supporting each family to create their own bespoke toolkit of practical tools and strategies; moving their child from angst to courage, so everyone feels confident, calm, and connected. Once you have your unique set of tools and strategies those day to day challenges become easier to navigate, for you and for your child. The route map becomes easier to read and the journey becomes a whole lot more enjoyable.
Based in Hampshire, and thanks to modern technology I work directly with families and schools stretching from Manchester to Monaco.
You might have been told about me through a friend, found me through social media, or stumbled on me by happy accident. I am so pleased you have; feel assured you are in the right place. However big, or small your challenge feels right now, I have created a number of different ways you can access support. Families find me at different stages of their journey, and this calls for different levels of support. It may be right now you need some easy to digest material to help you understand your child’s confidence or anxieties, or you may need a starter toolkit to use for the whole family. Whatever your needs right now, know I can help.
I also give public talks on how we can raise resilient children, support children with anxiety, and help our children manage their emotions. I run workshops in schools, as well as train teachers and nannies, so they can identify and support children with their confidence and anxieties. Quite simply, I want to make a difference to as many children’s lives as I can.
I am Dr Maryhan
