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
"Many thanks, Gill - it is a fantastic course, really interesting and well presented."

"As a relatively experienced adopter, many years in to a stressful journey, with a complex child, living with challenging, sometimes extreme behaviour, I wasn’t too sure what to expect. What could it do for me that the other numerous training courses, variety of groups and forums have failed to achieve over the years? I wondered if the course might be geared towards prospective or new adoptive parents, rather than the more battle weary amongst us. I could not have been more wrong! "
