We are specialists in children’s behaviour, body image, mental health and well-being. Working with schools, parents, and children of all ages, we provide Training, Consultancy, Advice and Support.

Our aim is for children to grow and develop into confident, happy and resilient individuals.

“Their advice is always spot on! Practical, do-able and wise. It has been invaluable to have their positive and encouraging input. Staff and parents alike appreciate their ideas and suggestions and our children have benefited enormously.”

We are Chris Calland & Nicky Hutchinson.

With over 50 years’ combined experience of supporting children’s emotional well-being, we have worked alongside hundreds of schools, parents, children and young people.

Originally class teachers, we then worked for Bristol Education Authority as specialist advisers to schools and families before setting up our independent consultancy, ‘Not Just Behaviour’ in 2007.

We are passionate campaigners for body image and mental health education. We believe that it’s important to support children at an early stage to build their self-esteem and resilience, so that they are able to manage the pressures of modern life. We frequently appear in the media and have advised the Government on these important topics. In 2012 we received a parliamentary award in recognition of our work.

We are both parents and live in the South West.
