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
Adoption Academy offers mentoring and e-learning, taught by Adopters and Foster Carers who are also professionally trained in their field of expertise. We know that as incredibly busy people you wont necessarily have time to go to live courses. Whether you are new to adoption/fostering or a battle weary parent, our courses will help you.
Our unique e-courses and therapies created specifically for adopters and foster carers such as our 20 hour “Building Resilience to Stress Less” and "Building Attachments through Touch" will help you regain control and create more harmony in your home. Adopters need stress management training as part of their post adoption support. Sign up today for our free trial.
"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
""Genuinely this really has helped me and my family.
I have been able to easily access the site, log on and follow on from where I left off. When I did have a problem I telephoned Gill who talked me through step by step. What a lovely lady.
When I initially printed off the work book my initial thought was “how may activities”?!!!
With nothing to lose I set to. Prepared, I pressed play. Gill was very easy to listen to, smiley, humorous and more importantly understanding and honest.
The course holistically is well thought out, the videos are not too long, the Activities are simple to follow with great prompts and for the sheer fact that I had to stop, sit down, relax and listen, was a joy and not a chore. ""
