Sunflower supports children to thrive
In these days of fast food, fast living and quick fixes, there’s little wonder that many of our children struggle to keep up with the demands of school and life.
Indeed, as a parent, it is painful to watch your child struggle socially, behaviourally, academically or even on the sports field!
Yet understanding why they are struggling and how best to deal with it is often a confusing and frustrating process. Whether a child has a formal diagnosis or not, understanding the root cause, is critical to effectively addressing the problem.
Sunflower has supported hundreds of children – many with health, behavioural or learning difficulties, others who are underachieving at school and some, who for no obvious reason, need a little extra support to achieve their full potential.
Many children come to see us because of anxiety, low self-esteem or confidence issues, bad behaviour, poor concentration or if a parent feels their child needs help but they can’t quite put their finger on it.
The support of the Sunflower Programme can be used alongside any medical, educational or mental health intervention already available.

Enable Your Child to Achieve
Sunflower believes that a child who is physically and neurologically balanced feels better, achieves more, has greater self-esteem, is sociable and makes the most of their opportunities.
What greater reward is possible than to see a child to achieve his potential when all had seemed impossible.
