We adopt to bring more joy and fulfilment into our lives but in reality the parental stress of having an adopted or fostered child can be immense. You are likely to be here because you are suffering from hugely stressful, challenging behaviour from your child(ren) and are desperate to get life back onto an even keel. "Having taught stress management in industry for 20 years, it was adopting in 2011 that taught me what stress really is!" Gill Tree Founder

"I just wanted to thank you for the very informative and enjoyable course. I loved your practical and playful approach and your warm sense of humour. It was so reassuring and comforting to know that you could understand and relate to our personal challenges. Time really flew by and I came away with lots of practical and sensible advice that I was eager to share with my husband. I couldn't stop smiling on my way home!
The following evening when my son was getting a bit wound up and unreasonable, my hubby put into practice your "Tarzan" tip and, much to our amusement, it worked!! Our son was so surprised at his dad's sudden response that we all burst out laughing. Thank you for a life-changing day!!" Valeria Ventura
"Always good to refresh and remind plus some new ideas too. This adoption support course on adoption stress and depression was very helpful. Loved the way your referred to your son and were very honest about getting it ‘wrong’ sometimes. I think it’s always good for adopters to remind themselves that were are not perfect, not should we strive to be. ‘Good enough’ most of the time is great."

"I was impressed by the way the Adoption Support course "Building Resilience"was structured and so easy to navigate. Gill is an excellent presenter. There was a wide range of relevant, experienced based content, delivered in an enthusiastic, caring, considered way. I enjoyed the activities and found them to be a great way of recapping on what I had learnt and adapting the strategies to suit my situation. I have learned many new ideas and found myself questioning my own feelings and behaviours"
