The Benefits of This Program
Take Control of Your Relationship.
With our Build Better Bonds With Your Teen program, through learning about cutting edge neuroscience you can take control of your relationship with your teen. Learn how to communicate effectively - without constantly losing it, how to set boundaries, and how to become the parent you want to be.
Solve the Communication Puzzle
Communication between parents and teens can be a real challenge - having to repeat the same thing again and again. The additional stress of auditory processing, disorganisation and time constraints can add to things escalating quickly resulting in blowouts. We know first-hand how quickly things can escalate - affecting not only our mental but physical health also.
Overcome Parenting Teen Hurdles
Are you struggling to deal with common issues like creating healthy boundaries, grades, and meltdowns? With the added layer of ADHD - organisational skills, peer relationships, motivation and emotional regulation all become bigger challenges. Plus teenagers are often looking for more independence and autonomy while still struggling with everyday organisational tasks. Learn strategies to support you.
Finally feel heard and validated
By having someone who understands what it's like to have ADHD and knows the challenges it comes with. The creator of Poyvagal Teen® is diagnosed ADHD, Dyslexia and has Dyspraxia and has had a lifelong struggle with education - masking the struggle until late diagnosed.

Hey I am Yasmin & Welcome!
Worried or confused about how to parent your neurodivergent teen? I get it – but I assure you – you’re not alone! As mom of now neurodivergent adults from a blended family and a BACP Registered Counsellor in the U.K – my journey has been long and hard. Believe me when I tell you I have been that raging mom who has lost control. I am also late diagnosed ADHD, Dyslexic and have Dyspraxia.
I totally get it – the responsibility, the constant managing expectations, worry about finance, mental and physical exhaustion – then add to that the shame of losing it. At times reduced to tears – I have felt like I had nothing else to give.
But through patience, dedication and plenty of learning along the way – voilà! I can proudly say that deep nurturing bonds have formed between us. I’ve even broken free of generational patterns of physical and verbal abuse. And if I could get my relationships on track so can you!
That’s why I’m here: To help YOU build better relationships with your neurodivergent teens too. We will learn about the nervous system whilst going through the eight senses and find strategies to find peace and calm whilst becoming aware of those traps that catch us out.
When I was searching for help and not being able to find the right tools to support learning I created “The What’s Your State Toolkit“. So don’t give up just yet; change is definitely possible and even fun sometimes.
This course is designed specifically of parents of tweens and teens who are ADHD or having learning differences and are looking to learn skills for emotion regulation, motivation, and responsibilities.
It should take approximately 6 hours to complete. One module is released each week over six weeks.
Each week you will have activities to complete and a chance to implement them into your day to day life.
Once a week there is a group Q&A session via zoom.
Not a problem! If you still have concerns for inattention, hyperactivity, or executive functioning, sensory processing – you’re a great fit for the program. In fact you are a great fit for any parent or caregiver who wants to build a stronger relationship with their children.
That’s okay! Even if you ONLY use the parent course, you will still walk away with a better relationship with your teen than when you started. Effective change begins with the parent. It’s not about “teaching” its more about you “being” – that’s how the knowledge is shared.
