"Not only is Rachel deeply knowledgeable, but she communicates deep compassion and breadth of experience which was hugely impactful. Her lived experience has given Rachel a very individual perspective and voice; which many of us can benefit from. One thing that I particularly enjoy about Rachel and her message is that she bridges the world of therapeutic expertise and lived experience in a very accessible and inclusive manner. I wholeheartedly recommend Rachel!"

I met Adele for the first time whilst I was fostering my lad. A few years later we worked together in an SEMH school. It was quiet the experience!!  Adele now helps school leaders and staff to improve behaviours, so that all pupils have the chance to thrive. 
As my moto over the years has been let's get it right for our children, I was one of Adele's experts interviewed and became part of Chapter 2 in her book.
