Elizabeth Troup

I have been working with parents and families for 23 years. I believe as parents  we all  have a right to an emotionally healthy and fulfilled family life. There is no such thing as a perfect parent. No child is born with an instruction manual and no parent is exempt from challenging children at some stage of their lives.

I started working with parents and families in 1995 for an Oxford based charity, ‘The Family Nurturing Network’, delivering the Carolyn Webster-Stratton and Steven Bavolak’s Parenting Programmes in schools and family centres. I then went on to work for ‘Parentline Plus’, a national charity, running small group workshops and working one-to-one with parents.

Since then, I have been working freelance in Oxfordshire originally with the support of the Oxfordshire Parenting Development Team (OPDT). With the OPDT I was part of a team to train other professionals using an accredited programme to run parent groups and to work individually with parents in the county.

I have a particular interest in working with families who have children on the Autistic Spectrum and children with ADHD. I have also worked on a one-to-one basis with families who are being supported by Cafcass ( Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service).
