My work with parents stems from a passion to see young people emerge as strong, independent thinkers, able to face the world, full of respect for self & others.
My desire is to see parents equipped with as much information & as many skills as possible to nurture their children.
This has led me to write & deliver my own Engaging with Adolescents™ training to parents & to offer coaching too.
Having had two teenage children of my own, I have had the unique experience of having children at both state & independent schools, as day pupils & boarders. I have also had the experience of managing our children through prolonged periods of separation from their father due to his job.

More about Engaging with Adolescents™
In Engaging with Adolescents™, I share the latest information & research available on the development of the adolescent brain & its impact on behaviour.
I also give a brief introduction to the Thinking Environment® & its potential to help parents engage generously with adolescents.
Encouraging our young to think well for themselves not only helps them to feel empowered & affirmed, it also has a positive impact on relationships.
What people say:
“I attended the teenage brain presentation and follow up Building Relationship workshop. I found it so interesting and invaluable in both my role as a mum to a 17 year old and as a teacher of year 12 and 13. After 20 plus years of teaching this age group, I thought I knew it all but I found the programme refreshing & exciting. It has definitely made me alter my way of communicating with my daughter as well as those I teach. Looking at the issues that generation Z have to grapple with makes you rethink! Seriously rethink”. Gail Graves, Mum and Senior Teacher, Head of Vocational Studies, The Royal Ballet School.
“Miranda has very cleverly taken an experience of her own motherhood and applied her own integrity, passion and learning; creating a very accessible and pertinent model which she shares with others. No one is exempt from the confusion of adolescence. Miranda’s caring, steady and secure style is a valuable resource to guide you through it”. Katharine. Mother, Surrey.
“I know someone who works on a clever coaching model called the ‘thinking environment’. I’ve been lucky enough to have coaching from her and it’s like a breath of fresh air. Her name is Miranda Brockman and she’s very good. She makes you feel very safe, as if you’ve been prescribed the perfect medicine. I think what you get from her as much as anything, is to be really heard, by someone who has this issue right on her heart. Please do get in touch with Miranda”. Parent client, Surrey.
