Patricia Fitzpatrick offers consultations to parents who are worried about their child’s emotional or behavioural difficulties. It has been her experience that for positive change to occur and be maintained, the  parents/carers of the child must also change their way of responding to the challenges posed by
the child’s distress.
Patricia’s approach is informed by:
– 36 years experience working in the Irish Health Service
– Extensive experience working with parents, carers, health care professionals and teachers to
support the social, emotional and academic development of the child
– Work has included all aspects of parenting from infant to young adult
– Wealth of experience working with the parents of children with diagnosis such as Autistic
Spectrum Disorder and Attention Deficit Disorder
– Accreditated facilitator of the Incredible Years Parenting Programme and Early Bird Programme
(for the parents of children on the Autism spectrum)
– Works with groups, couples and individuals
