Welcome to Unravel CEBPC

Specialist Children's Emotional & Behavioural Psychologists

Self-Esteem by Andrea Chatten

This book is for children aged 7+ who want help with learning how to cope with low self-esteem.
It is written as a fiction book with lots of messages and guidance woven into the stories about
Bladen and Tim and their friends.

The Blinks books were created to help children, young people, and their families understand
emotional and behavioural issues. More so, they provide strategies and techniques to
help manage and change the intensity and duration of problematic behaviours over time.

Unravel gives their time freely and we regard them as an extra member of our pastoral staff.  Unravel has worked with parents also so that we can have a co-ordinated approach to improving behaviour.  Because Unravel is not seen as a teacher they often succeed where we do not.  I cannot recommend them more highly.  They have made a real difference to our school.

In addition, Unravel gives us weekly tips on how to manage challenging students.”

Anne Quaile – Headteacher Handsworth Grange Community sports College

“Unravel have been working with our staff and pupils since September. The quality of training and on-going advice provided has really supported our staff to further develop their understanding of children’s social, emotional and mental health difficulties. Their input has been pivotal to improving our behaviour management and to supporting the school community to openly discuss difficult emotions. We have also had high quality 1:1 support for our most vulnerable and troubled pupils on a weekly basis which has supported them to maintain their placement and improve their self-esteem. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional in their approach at all times. Pupils, staff and families have very much appreciated their support this year.”

Heather Partington Deputy Headteacher – Pennine View School

“Having Victoria in two days per week benefits students and staff enormously. At     the moment our local CAMHS services has around a 6 month waiting list. Even then, when students are seen, they are limited to a short series of appointments. With Victoria we can have students seen quickly and they can continue to have sessions with her until they no longer require them. Victoria can also advise staff on the best way to work with students on her caseload. In a number of cases the outcomes for students has vastly improved because of Victoria’s work.”

Nicola Holmes – Student Services Manager / Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead  Thornhill Community Academy

  • Anxiety & underlying anxiety conditions

    Anxiety underpins every emotional and behavioural issue form having a difficult few days to more stable conditions such as Autism and ADHD. Understanding what anxiety is and how to manage it are fundamental to moving things forward.

  • Supporting positive mental health and well-being

    It is perfectly normal for all of us to have difficult days now and then. However when these issues present for intensely over a longer duration it can have a huge impact on our happiness and well-being. Most issues are moved on quickly and easily.

  • Emotional development

    At Unravel we do not see age as a number but more so as a state of mind. Emotional development can become hindered across a child’s lifespan and can present as emotional and behavioural issues. By helping parents, carers and professionals understand this better, positive change and resilience can be fostered.

  • Nurture and parental sensitivity

    Understanding our children is essential to promote positive development. At Unravel we can help translate some of the behavioural issues that children and young people are presenting in order to ensure a deeper understanding and most appropriate responses.

  • Changing and improving negative emotional & behavioural patterns

    Before any positive change can happen, it is essential that an assessment of need occurs so that the most appropriate and effective action can be taken. When emotional & behavioural change is approached holistically and with commitment the results are beneficial to everyone involved.

What others say about us

“Without Unravel my son would not have stood a chance in life, they saved him from getting into trouble at a young age and right through to leaving school. Unravel took him under their wing when everyone else gave up on him and he adored his Psychologist, they are a true credit to children with behavioural problems. Without their guidance he would have been locked up. I looked on unravel as a supportive friend and they really are a caring and aspiring team that parents can look up to.”


“When I first met my Psychologist from Unravel, teachers hated me and wanted to get me out. I remember her saying to me when I first met her how angry and mad I looked and it was true. I hated everything and everyone and I was so unhappy. She helped me so much she honestly did because without her I wouldn’t be where I am now and I know I wouldn’t. I always say to myself and everyone it is Unravel who helped me change and who taught me I could be better than I was, achieve things and wasn’t as useless as everyone used to say I was.”
