Providing engaging and enjoyable social groups across Cheshire
"Adam has been nothing short of fantastic. Following the sudden passing of his Grandfather and the unsettling nature of house moves our son was suffering massively with anxiety, lack of confidence, an inability to regulate his emotions and this was portraying itself through fear and ‘implosions’. Seeing him get so upset with himself over the smallest of mistakes was effecting us all so following a recommendation we approached Adam and the transformation is incredible. He loves football so Adam suggested that instead of traditional counselling he could help him learn some tools to manage his emotions through football. Our son now not only plays football with more confidence, has learnt to win and loose gracefully but he is also taking these tactics into everyday life and we could not be happier to have our son back. We have no intentions to stop using Adam, our son loves his sessions with him and looks forward to them all the time".
"I have had the the good fortune to work with Adam running social skills groups for autistic children that incorporated a wide range of techniques, I have never met anyone who can engage children better. He understands their needs and knows how to teach in a structured and effective manner".
We would thoroughly recommend Adam. He is a fantastic role model and has helped my boys in so many ways from building confidence to developing football skills and fitness to helping with focus and social awareness. Regardless of your needs we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Adam and we are so grateful for all the great life skills he has imparted on our children which we know will stand them in good stead as they grow up.
"We had the good fortune of meeting Adam when he stepped in to oversee an activity run by ChAPS (Cheshire Autism Practical support) a while ago. He used his enthusiasm to engage my boys in sporting activities for a whole hour...no mean feat. So when I heard he taught social skills classes, myself and another parent engaged his services over the summer break so our boys could have some fun outside whilst benefiting from learning turn taking, team work and helping to build self esteem and confidence. My boys have really enjoyed each session so far".
"Adam had a brilliant manner and approach to instructing all of the teachers and staff - we all thoroughly enjoyed the session and he even provided us adults with prizes too! He had lots of very useful, new, and different games/activities that can be used and adapted for a variety of year groups. His positive attitude and activities made for the most hilarious training session we've had for a while!"
"Thank you for the staff meeting yesterday – it was very enjoyable whilst also being extremely useful. It provided me with an abundance of fun activities to use which focus on different aspects of children’s social skills. Also, the way you delivered the session ensured that everyone was engaged and actively testing out the games".
"It has been wonderful having Adam working with our son at Kings school. The social skills classes have really helped him develop conversational and listening skills, and understand the importance of taking it in turns to speak and in turn helped him develop good friendships. He finds the one-to-one sessions extremely enjoyable and fun! Adam relates well with our son and by sharing an interest in Minecraft and Nintendo they have built up a good rapport. It is also beneficial that Adam gives feedback to the teachers to build on the skills learnt in the sessions. We thoroughly recommend Adam’s lessons".
"Adam was a burst of energy during his visit to our social skills group at Brine Leas School! Equipped with an arm full of games and some fantastic dancing skills, Adam's session filled our students with enthusiasm. They absolutely loved Adam and it was brilliant to see them in a different light".
"We had the very good fortune to have Adam coach our son (and importantly his peers as well) over an 18 month period in the social skills he would never pick up ' by osmosis' . Adam uses a mix of structured 1:1 work , then gradually bringing in peers to practice the 'theory' in real life social situations - but always in a safe environment minimising anxiety. By blending the street cred of an ex pro footballer, with the ability to make social skills activity sessions fun and engaging but with bags of empathy and understanding".
"Alex really enjoyed Adam's sessions and it helped him move forward socially which is hard to achieve with autism".
