Andrea Chatton

Unravel’s founder, Andrea Chatton established the Unravel approach based on nearly thirty years’ experience of working with children and young people in emotional distress. The bridge between educational and child psychologists. Andrea has used her wealth of experience and expertise to train and build a team committed to driving positive change for children and young people. She recognised that there is a service missing and Unravel has been rapidly embraced by schools, parents and support services in desperate need for intervention during challenging times. The Unravel team are recognised as experts in this specialised area which sits between the work of Educational and Child Psychologists.

They are currently campaigning for this model to be recognised like other protected psychological areas with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Andrea is author of ‘The Blinks’, a series of books which were created to help children, young people, and their families understand and manage emotional and behavioural issues. She is also the BBC’s on-hand expert to call upon when ‘hot topics’ arise in the news and which may affect the well-being of children and young people
