One of the driving […]

We are currently working together on Tanya’s PhD proposal, which is to evaluate the effectiveness of psychotherapeutic and cognitive coaching interventions to support neurodiverse people in prison. Research is needed, but let’s try […]

To access this learning support a “thorough” assessment has to take place and comprehensive records kept of needs and progress. Genius Within can do all of this, allowing you to be sure of the funding, […]

Announcing….. Blooming Genius!

For many years, I have been asked, “when are you going to work with young people?” and told “We need your work in schools!”
