Helping parents understand their child’s behaviour through a brain-body lens

We understand the unique challenges that come with raising neurodivergent children, and we are here to offer practical solutions, compassionate guidance, and a supportive community.

At Complex Connexions, our mission is to empower parents with the knowledge and tools they need to create a harmonious and understanding home environment. Our founder, Shelley Farnham, has first-hand experience navigating the complexities of ADHD and Autism within her own family.

This personal journey inspired the creation of opportunities and resources aimed at helping other families thrive.

Supporting your child’s anxiety

Your child’s anxiety might look like behaviour that doesn’t always show that they’re worried about something – it could be shouting, swearing, running away, avoiding tasks, shutting down or people-pleasing.

The Safe and Sound

Protocol (SSP)

Music listening therapy which stimulates the vagus nerve and helps the nervous system to become more regulated and less stuck in a fight, flight or freeze response.

Shelley was very generous with the information she shared and passionate about enabling us to problem solve and see change. There were multiple light bulb moments for me. I felt that I was more aware of what was going on beneath the surface for my children and was able to more patient and compassionate. With the information Shelley shared I felt more confident that what I was doing was the right thing. The course exceeded my expectations!

Following the course, I can say that I am a much more understanding and thoughtful parent. I’m better at noticing what’s going on and thinking ahead to prevent stressful situations. My relationship with my daughter has improved which makes me very happy and I am better equipped to help my son when he gets angry. There’s still work to do and I still mess up a lot, but I think I’m getting things right much more often than I used to

I took part in Shelleys course to help me connect better with my kids. I wanted to be a better Mam and to understand them more. Shelley delivered 6 sessions covering connection, understanding and communication which were useful, informative and eye opening. She took us on a journey which meant that we thought about ourselves as well as our children and showed us how to create connection at home. We set ourselves our own tasks at the end of each session so we could see ourselves moving forward.
