I show parents how to empower their child to be confident, resilient, bully-proof and, ultimately, happy – especially during tough times like divorce.
My mission is to support parents who want to make sure their children are happy.
I do that by using what I’ve learned working with over 1,600 children in over 50 schools and 22 years in educational publishing.

I can provide you with practical strategies to help your child get through the divorce.
I was a mostly happy child apart from being bullied for my buck teeth at school and at scout camp where an older boy’s cruel humiliation made my life a misery. I left university in 1989 and went into the family educational publishing business.
We published 8 million copies of Roald Dahl’s Guide To Railway Safety to stop children playing on railway lines. And also created materials for BBC, Thames Water, WWF, Tesco, Vodafone and hundreds of other large organisations.
I took over the business in 1995 when my parents retired. The business became my life and its performance decided my mood. I worried constantly about failing and even when success came it felt hollow. So I got into personal development to find happiness, eventually sold my business and become a coach.
I started working with kids in 2013 and found my true vocation – inspiring kids to be happy and working with their parents to do that face-to-face, on the phone and via Zoom/Facetime.
“My husband and I had been through a nasty divorce and our eldest was really struggling coming to terms with that. She’d also been having friendship issues at her new school. Simon showed me how to show her how to take her mind off the past and focus on her dancing and writing. She’s now a lot more positive and is attracting new friends because she’s so much nicer to be around. Absolutely delighted.”
“I was at my wits’ end. My son had become sad and withdrawn. I couldn’t figure out why. All he wanted to do was play Fortnite. Simon gave me a process to work through and although there were some hiccups along the way, Josh is now a much happier little boy and wants to spend more time us. The process and limiting his time online has really worked.”
“I got in touch with Simon because my daughter just wouldn’t go to school because she was being bullied. I wasn’t in a good place. Simon really helped me work through my own stuff because I was bullied myself. Then he showed me how to help her. She’s back to her old happy self. And I don’t have that daily fight to get her to school.”
