Welcome to Newbold Hope

Are you worried about a child's difficult and dangerous behaviour? Does your child sometimes become violent towards others?  Do the rest of the family sometimes get hurt?  Newbold Hope is entirely run by parents who have been through this with their own child and our whole approach is based on what we know has already worked successfully in our own families and in thousands of others.

Christmas can be the most wonderful time of the year but for a lot of families it can also be the most stressful time of year.

Can your SEND child behave in difficult or dangerous ways?

Would you like some ideas to help calm the storm?

Newbold Hope is here to offer you the support you need.

If you are the parent/carer of a SEND child who displays some or all of the following behaviours, then let us be there for you throughout December. Newbold Hope have the experience to provide you with the specific support and understanding you need.
1. Does your child refuse to do anything you ask?
2. Does your child get angry?
3. Does your child need to control the world around them?
4. Does your child have difficulties interacting with their siblings?
5. Does your child find Christmas impossible to cope with?

Newbold Hope offers support to families with a SEND child who displays anxiety driven difficult and dangerous behaviours.
This year we are offering FREE strategies to help parents in the lead up to Christmas.
Follow the link below to sign up for 24 days’ worth of free guidance and strategies to help reduce your SEND child’s violent meltdowns this Christmas.

How can we support you?

We have a range of pre-recorded webinars available to purchase for £8.50 each.  You have access to the recording for 4 weeks from the day of purchase to watch as many times as you need.


The Live Training Sessions have now taken place but the recordings are still available to purchase. Please follow the More Information link below.

We are hosting a series of 8 online training sessions over the summer. They are all co-produced with families who have lived experience, so everything we suggest has already worked well with other children in our community. The first one is next Thursday! They'll cost £8.50 each, which includes 4 week's access to the recording. We've had such incredible feedback from parents who have already taken part, and we now know of well over 2,000 families in our community who have managed to help their child significantly reduce their violence or stop it altogether.

If you want to join us for any of these training sessions, please follow the link below, it will take you to the information page where you can read what each session will be about. You will also be able to buy your ticket from there.

Have you seen Yvonne's TED Talk?

Watch the TED Talk here

Half a million people watched it in the first two weeks after it was published. 

It's a powerful, 17-minute long talk that can help you to better understand and support highly anxious children with difficult and dangerous behaviour.

Whether you're a parent, or someone who works with children, or a family member or just someone who has once seen a child behave badly in a supermarket - please watch it, so that together we can create happier and calmer futures for this group of children and their families, with understanding instead of judgement. 

Here it is below, and please scroll down our Home page for more more information, training and support about how we can all help to reduce extreme episodes of behaviour in children with disabilities, additional needs and highly anxious.

    “The Newbold Hope Family Support Group has helped me to be curious about my children's behaviours and has helped me to be a better parent. I have felt less isolated and more supported as well as more confident in my parenting since joining the group.”

  • Newbold Hope

    “Yvonne and her group have brought so many parents back from the brink. Truly astounding work. The compassion here is visceral.”

  • Newbold Hope

    “Yvonne has saved me so many times in my short knowledge of this group and I am eternally grateful. Her back story makes me cry every time. For someone to find a silver lining the way she did is simply beyond words and we all benefit so much. The webinars are fantastic and being able to honestly share and not feel judged is priceless. Thank you so much for all you do and to your admins too.”
