Support CBS


All support is on-line


Behaviour support needs to consider wider emotional and social issues that surround the child/young person/family.  Many behaviour problems become habitual patterns of reacting to situations. The earlier the intervention the greater the opportunity for success.

  • Dr Sam Littlemore has worked in clinical settings, she now focuses on everyday child behaviour issues that are often triggered by changes or challenges in the child's environment.
  • Sam offers families the opportunity to work with a specialist who can offer support and suggests strategies that encourage your child to learn to manage feelings and behaviour issues, helping to create other ways in which to communicate and navigate their frustration or confusion.  
  • Issues range from reactive behaviours to changes and transition (including the impact on behaviour of the COVID-19 on behaviour, anxiety, education and transition), to patterns of behaviour that have become established.  
  • The child, parent/s and Sam form a team to work together, this can lead to increased psychological well-being for the whole family.


*Please note that this is a service for behaviour support and can also work alongside, or in addition to, pre/post clinical assessment/intervention or diagnosis. 



“There can often be an impact on a child’s well-being and that of their family when there are behaviour problems. Sometimes, accepting support from a specialist can help to unpick the issues and drivers of those problems.


Tailored support that allows the child and family to try new approaches to help change or reduce the behaviour, helping to break cycles and behaviour patterns.

Before we met Sam, my teenage son (diagnosed ASD), had totally shut down and was unable to attend school due to anxiety. Sam was able to engage with my son like no other professional. She was there for the whole family, and even at the lowest points she supported us all and helped us to remain positive.  My son is now much happier and attending school full time, and we are a much closer, more understanding family unit. Sam is a real life Nanny McPhee and I would recommend her to anyone whose children are struggling. (Mum of KS3 pupil)


Sam has made such a difference to our lives. Our daughter has gone from multiple meltdowns to a child who can now assess a situation and incorporate strategies to deal with difficult situations. Our lives have been transformed through working as a family with Sam.

(Father of teenage child.) 


Our daughter faced some behavioural problems after a bereavement and big changes in her life. Dr Sam built up an excellent relationship with our daughter right from the start. She used interesting methods which made the best of our daughter's own artistic abilities and was able to help her. When we needed to make changes, Dr Sam was wonderfully kind and flexible. If we think how our daughter was when she started working with Dr Sam, it is clear that the changes have been long term and effective. (Mother of a child in KS 2)


"When we first met Sam the whole family was in need, for very different reasons. It soon became apparent from our first meeting that changes were to come from us all, as a family to make a real difference.

We were given the tools, encouragement, guidance and faith that if we worked together we would see positive changes from our 6 year old, and for both of us as Mummy and Daddy but also not forgetting ourselves as individuals.

As a family we have been able to cope with the lows of parenthood and lavish in the highs but coming through the other side ready for the next day as if it was our first.

We cannot thank Sam or ‘Dr Sam the Ballerina’ as she is known in our house enough for the support she has given the whole family and for making us see the brighter side of life.” (Natalie)



"Dr Sam is really good and very nice. She has helped me get calmer, be less bad tempered and has helped me be more creative. The space where my anger was, has been replaced with creativeness and calmness. I think she will be very good with other people too." (Kat, age 7)
