Introductory Workshops – Sensory Integration/Sensory Attachment Integration Model

Many of the adopted and looked after children and young people who come to Cherrycroft struggle with sensory integration and attachment issues. Our highly experienced Paediatric Occupational Therapist, Catherine Elsey will be providing this series of workshops for a second time. During the first workshop Catherine introduces us to the underlying model in a highly accessible way. We welcome parents/carers, Post Adoption Social Workers and Teachers to this workshop. For the second workshop Catherine focuses on regulation strategies in the home and we ask parents/carers and post adoption Social Workers to attend. During the final workshop Catherine will focus on regulation strategies in the school setting and we ask that parents/carers and teachers attend this workshop. We ask that participants commit to at least two of the workshops and attendance at the first workshop is requisite.

An Introduction to Mindfulness

Life can be stressful where we find ourselves being pulled in many different directions by the different roles we play as parent, partner, worker, family member and so on. This can leave us feeling stressed out and burnt out.

Mindfulness has gained a good evidence-base as a way of alleviating some of that stress by learning to ‘be’ in the moment by training our minds to be aware of our bodies, thoughts and emotions.

We’ve invited an accredited mindfulness teacher to provide us with this introductory session.

This is a closed session for parents who are already part of Cherrycroft. If you’d like to come along for a taster session please get in touch as spaces are limited. Please contact or

Start: 3 July 2019 10:00am

13 June 2019 – 11 July 2019


We are very pleased and fortunate to have a clinician of the calibre of  Dr Fiona Knott to present this series of workshops. Dr Knott is a Clinical Psychologist who worked for Berkshire CAMHS with children with ASD until 2014 as a senior Clinician. Currently she is a lecturer at the University of Reading where she works clinically in the Centre for Autism, and teaches undergraduate and post graduate students.

What are the workshops about?

Four linked workshops to help you understand more about your child’s anxiety and develop a tool box of strategies for them to use at home and school.  Each workshop will consist of a mix of presentations from Fiona Knott, activities, and plenty of time for discussion.

Who can attend?

This series is open to parents and carers of children and teenagers who have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder and who experience anxiety.

Format: Each workshop series consists of 4 x 2 hour workshops. Each workshop covers a different aspect so you will find it most helpful to attend all four.

Cost: £200 per participant and this cost is for all 4 workshops. Signing up to the workshops means signing up to all 4 and unfortunately, we are unable to offer a refund/reduced price for missed workshops

Dates: Thursday evenings: 13th and 20th of June and the 4th and 11th of July from 7pm to 9pm

Start: 13 June 2019 7:00pm
End: 11 July 2019 7:00pm

Managing Your Angry Child


Many parents say that they struggle to cope with their child’s anger and angry behavior. Some say that their child has “meltdowns” over small things when they are stressed, and these children may slam doors, trash their rooms or hit out at others. Some children struggle when their parents try to put in limits and boundaries, telling the child “no” is often a trigger point for temper outbursts.


This 3-hour workshop will focus on:

  • a better understanding of the dynamics of anger
  • Strategies for keeping yourself calm
  • How to help your child regulate their feelings in a more constructive manner


  • Maximum participants: 12
  • Minimum participants: 6 (we reserve the right to cancel the group should minimum numbers not be met)
  • Cost: £50 per participant, payment required to secure booking (Visa and Mastercard can be taken over the phone, or post a cheque after requesting a place over the phone)
