I support parents through counselling, support groups and workshops. Working as a counsellor and business owner I realised that we all need support. I love parents to come along to our Health & Wellbeing events and see what’s on offer and find the right support for them. Find out more about my work and events using the link below.
I’m Sarah Wilkins, a certified Parent and Teen Relationship Coach and adult education teacher with a background in Psychology and child development. I specialise in in working with the parents of adolescents (10-19 years) to help you navigate this sometimes tricky time in your relationship.
I work one to one with parents, and will work with small groups, to teach you about the changes going on in your child’s head so that you can better understand their behaviour and how to apply the skills of professional coaching to your emerging adolescent. Coaching is outcome, solution and future-focused. It presupposes that you, as a parent, have the answers. It is my job to help you find them so that you can always feel confident in interacting with your pre-teen/teenager.
Uniquely, my 7 step programme is derived from what adolescents said they needed from the adults in their lives as they make this transition through puberty and beyond. The skills of coaching, combined with relating directly to what your children need in their interaction with you, has been shown thousands of times, and across cultures, to help maintain mutually respectful relationships between adolescents and their parents/carers. Worth knowing, don’t you think?!
Sessions are packaged-based (4 week, 8 week or 12 week) depending on the level of support required. The work is confidential and conducted over Skype to allow for the busy lives that parents have.
Member of the British Psychological Association and Association for Coaching.

Reflect is a pregnancy support charity based in York and Harrogate. We provide free, impartial and confidential support to men and women facing an unexpected pregnancy choice and to those struggling after experiencing pregnancy loss, including miscarriage, still-birth and post-abortion. We can offer face to face advice and support at our venues in Acomb and Harrogate, or if this is not convenient, we can also arrange other appointment locations or provide help over the telephone or by email.
Why We Help:
We offer this time and space at Reflect, with non-judgemental support and information to help people make the decision best for them. We provide emotional and practical support whatever the outcome and aim to help all men and women access the services they need.
“When I contacted Reflect I literally felt like I couldn’t go on…I thought I had to be strong and ‘get on’ and not show my vulnerable side…I knew they would help me, being specialists in what they did, but I never expected such warmth, love, support and gentle encouragement…Without Reflect I hate to think where I would be now…The pain and heartbreak hasn’t gone away, but Reflect has helped me to see the sunshine through the clouds…I am forever and eternally thankful.”
Emily and Karl’s Story
“Losing two much wanted babies in quick succession last year left Karl and I feeling that our light had gone out and that only darkness lay ahead for us…I was a complete mess and unable to return to work, and Karl’s heart was breaking as nothing he could do or say would comfort me…We can safely say that the day we found Reflect was the day that changed our lives forever…We cannot emphasise enough the importance of the work that Reflect does, or how essential it is that they become more widely recognised so that other people in need can benefit from their incredible support. Their help has had a huge and everlasting impact on our lives.”

Coming from a background of alternative medicine, from a young age Alison formed a keen interest in holistic treatment by natural methods.
Alison Jowett trained for five years full time, initially at the John Wernham College of Classical Osteopathy and then at the European School of Osteopathy where she graduated. Studying at two different colleges has allowed her to have a wider perspective on Osteopathic treatment.
Her main treatment approach is in the classical style which involves treating the whole body which she combines with other techniques such as cranial osteopathy. These are effective in treating a wide range of conditions.
