Lysandra began working with children more than twenty years ago, as educator and mentor to young people from socially deprived areas of Los Angeles. She has since spent many years in UK classrooms supporting and engaging children in productive and playful learning experiences. Her research and practice is dedicated to children displaying complex emotions and behaviours in class and who may be struggling to learn. Lysandra provides advice and training to educators, and support for families with children who require a secure sanctuary from which they can develop resilience, socio-emotional confidence and successful learning experiences.

Current projects:

  • One-to-one tuition, mentoring and learning support to young people
  • Support, guidance and advice for families and teachers
  • Workshops for educators and related professionals seeking to better inform and improve teaching practice
  • Teaching psychology to educational professionals at Birkbeck College, University of London

Lysandra is currently serving on the Board of Directors at the Learnus Foundation
