Hope is a unique non-denominational charity for children. The Hope Centre for Cognitive Education is dedicated to the promotion and enhancement of learning potential using the methodology of Professor Feuerstein. The Centre helps students with a variety of learning and developmental difficulties ranging from bright under-achievers to those with complex needs including autistic spectrum disorders, ADHD, Downs Syndrome.

The methods include Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment programme (IE) a structured thinking skills programme taught individually or in groups and is designed to complement and underpin a regular school curriculum and Mediated Learning Experience (MLE) which develops the learner’s cognitive functions. Mediated Learning involves the child as an active participant in the learning process, making the child consciously aware of how he is thinking. The Centre works as a multi-disciplinary team and actively encourage parents to become mediators with their own children and are invited to participate in teaching sessions.

  • Dyslexia

  • Dyspraxia(DCD)
  • Attention Deficit disorder(ADD)
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Anxiety and Panic Disorder
  • Developmental immaturity
  • Speech and language difficulties
  • Bed wetting
  • Low self esteem
  • Sensory processing difficulties

The individual Reflex integration and stimulation programmes we provide work at a very early point developmentally. They work by securing the foundations on which all other development is built. Because we work at such a fundamental level we can help lots of people who have very different problems and/or diagnoses. Drug free non invasive therapy to help you or your child achieve your full potential and make your life easier.

We have clinics in Leith Edinburgh, Morningside Edinburgh and Biggar, South Lanarkshire.

Childcare in London Share

We nurture character because we believe 'soft skills' are as important as academics

  • Exciting holiday courses focused on helping prepare children for life
  • Fun and engaging temporary & ongoing childcare tailored to your child’s interests
  • Entertainment for children during special events including weddings, Christenings, birthday parties etc

We focus on the individual strengths of every child and are deeply committed to supporting them through their formative years, whether that be through our Creative Childcare or our Life Skills Courses.

Creative Childcare

An ad hoc and part-time creative childcare service in London for 3-12 year olds, provided by fun, engaging & talented Role Models.

Role Models is a unique service providing skilled & engaging ad hoc and ongoing part-time childcare in London.

We want to inspire children to create and learn, whilst having fun at the same time. Not only do our Role Models have extensive childcare experience but they are also lucky enough to be super talented in at least one of music, arts & crafts, drama, sport or homework (whilst many also come with other talents such as cooking or languages). What’s more, they all love sharing their passion with children. Our ongoing Role Models can normally commit to a minimum of 3 months, potentially longer depending on your requirements (e.g. after-school care or full time roles in the holidays).

Life Skills Courses

A range of fun and interesting 4-5 day half-term and holiday courses (10am – 3pm) for 8-12 year olds in London, focused on developing the soft skills that help prepare children for life.

The courses are a fun way of developing a growth mindset and the key ‘soft’ skills required to thrive in social & work environments at school, at home and in life ahead. The programme aim is to encourage children to push themselves outside of their comfort zones, embrace new experiences and persist with areas that are not their strengths. They are not designed only for children who particularly lack confidence & resilience; we believe these key life skills can be continually developed.

Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems

Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Register programme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.

Specialists in Psychological Assessment and Treatment

KindleKids is a child psychology service run by an experienced highly specialist Chartered Clinical Child Psychologist and specialist team. We work together with parents (and schools where appropriate) to assess, understand, support and provide strategies for managing a range of difficulties and concerns.

We offer:

  • Educational / Psychological Assessment
  • Therapeutic support to children and teenagers
  • Parenting support
  • Consultation to schools

We can help with a range of emotional, behavioural, social and learning issues that may be contributing to a child or teenager feeling unhappy, lacking in confidence or feeling out of control. Following psychological assessment, the child psychologist works with parents so that individual treatment plans can be developed to support them and their families in understanding and addressing their difficulties while at the same time acknowledging and nurturing their relative strengths, in order to help them to reach their potential.

Please see our website for parenting tips and more information about who we are, how we can help and what we offer.

You are also welcome to call us for a free telephone consultation to see how we can help prior to booking an appointment.
