Emotional Support for
Parents and Guardians of
Children with Special Needs
Whether you are awaiting a diagnosis or have received one for your child, you have entered a new world. One that you had not envisioned before. This can bring about stress, fear and ‘what-if’ thought-loops.
The purpose of ODODO is to support the emotional and mental wellbeing of parents so that you can feel happier, healthier and more resilient to stress in this challenging time.
The provision of a parent- engaged support can improve the quality of life for both the parent and the child with special needs.

“We were put at ease straight away in the workshop. A few weeks later and I’m continuing with the new habits. What we covered equipped us to make a long lasting impact."
“Catherine’s integrated approach gave me a space I hadn’t felt in a long time. I discovered ways to approach life in an easier way and I am sleeping much better”
ODODO has been developed by Catherine O’Brien, a special-needs teacher, personal and business coach, yoga teacher, mindfulness facilitator and meditation student.
“In meetings with parents of children with special-needs, I realised there were few supports available to care for parents’ wellbeing.”
Stories of isolation and difficulties encountered in coping with the balance of stress and happiness in their lives led to ODODO.
