Welcome to Focus In Mind
Are you struggling?
Are you concerned about a loved one?
Based in Pickering, Ryedale, North Yorkshire, I offer a variety of focused, enjoyable and adaptable therapies and SEN tutoring for all ages. The therapies and approaches that I use address the root causes of issues by using accessible movements and activities to stimulate the neural pathways in the brain… all without medication.
I am a SEN tutor and tutor students from 5 - 18 dependant upon needs.
I also offer family support, educational consultancy and training for Tourette Syndrome.

Don’t wait for an issue or age to get in your way.
Our brains are amazing. Science has proven the brain is capable of change and improvement at ANY AGE with the right kind of stimulation! This is called Neuroplasticity.
Using varied and adaptable movements with directed focus, stimulates Neuroplasticity. When this happens, many people find their lives improve, regaining the quality they seek for themselves or their loved ones.

In 2006, I contracted and survived Meningitis. I could not read and remember the last sentence I read! I could not cope with people talking, the TV on or background music. Two things at once seemed to “Blow my mind”! My balance was atrocious; I could not walk with one foot directly in front of the other or walk upstairs without a banister rail. I suffered dizziness a lot. In 2012 I tried the IM. I soon began to notice that my balance improved and I could walk upstairs without a handrail! I can now cope with lots of things going on around me, I can read, watch TV and have the kids playing, or music in the background! All in all I would say that the IM has helped me enormously. Some things cannot be mended, but I now believe that we can train our brains.
Mum of daughter with Tourette Syndrome
Morning Kim, just wanted to tell you that N alternated between doing Hug n Tug and 1-2-1 hand exercises last night till she fell asleep and it worked! Instead of an hour of tic noises!
The IM program played a big part in improving my daughter’s balance and co-ordination. Before the sessions she could not ride a bike despite many attempts over several years. After the IM sessions she got on her bike and was able to ride it within minutes. We feel the IM was the missing piece of the jigsaw for our daughter.

D has gone from sitting and looking out of the window in class to putting her hand up, answering questions, doing her work and her latest school report is the best so far. As her concentration has grown so has her confidence. She isn’t reading for pleasure just yet but she isn’t far off.
