My work with schools has developed in the last three years and stems from a passion to see young people emerge as strong, independent thinkers, able to face the world, full of respect for self & others.
This has led me to write & deliver my own Engaging with Adolescents™ workshop in various bespoke formats & to some coaching work within the education sector.

More about Engaging with Adolescents™
Adolescence is now widely regarded as covering those aged 12 to 24 years.
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.
“Thank you so much for coming to see the school on Friday. I thought it was a fantastic presentation, clearly one of the best that we have ever had. The staff have all commented on the subject matter and I think you inspired a lot of teachers..… I would very much like you to come and speak to the parents, and I would love you to come and do some more work on the Thinking Environment”. Headmaster, East Sussex Prep 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.
