Welcome to Adoption Academy

Published on 19th August 2016

When I (Gill Tree the  founder of Adoption Academy) advertised a free stress management webinar on an adopters forum and got 120 people signed up within 3 days, I realised there was a huge need and Adoption Academy was created. 

Overnight adopters become the parent of one or more children who because of their traumatic start in life can display survival behaviours such as aggression, deceit, lying, manipulation and violence. Adoption Stress is huge!

"Having taught stress management in industry for 20 years, it was adopting in 2011 that taught me what stress really is!"  Says Gill

As an adopter and former foster carer, with a background in community development and twenty years teaching stress management to industry, Gill and Adoption Academy are well placed to provide specialist in-house training such as “Building Resilience to Stress Less” to Adoption and Fostering Agencies.

Interactive e-learning is available for individual adopters and foster carers, making the training fully accessible for the stressed out parent.  This is what one adopter had to say

“I found the whole experience very calming and therapeutic and the course totally exceeded my expectations. I was impressed by how the course was structured and so easy to navigate. Gill Tree is an excellent presenter and course facilitator. I have learned many new ideas and found myself questioning my own feelings and behaviours. I finished the course in a state of tranquil calm, rejuvenated, empowered and ready to face another day”

Gill also founded and owned for 22 years, the UK’s largest school of massage and now provides training on therapeutic touch to enhance bonding for adopters and Rhythmic Movement Therapy to reduce the effects of trauma in children.
