Bettina is the author of The Incredible Teenage Brain: Everything You Need To Know To Unlock Your Teens Potential, along with her colleagues Jane Gilmour and Tara Murphy.

In 2021 she published the book How To Have Incredible Conversations With Your Child, with her friend and colleague Jane Gilmour. This book offers parents a place to build their relationship with their child through shared experience and conversation.

Bettina is now working on her next book which is a toolkit for parents wanting to improve everyday family life and support their children towards independence, through strengthening their executive function skills.


Bettina and Jane write together for the national press, recently publishing an article for The Guardian newspaper.


Bettina has appeared as a guest on a number of podcasts in the UK and overseas discussing issues relevant for support young people. Click here to listen.

Their podcast Incredible Conversations is a recent addition to Jane and Bettina’s offerings where they discuss and debate issues in response to questions sent in by parents and teachers about how to support young people on issues of topical concern.


Bettina has been asked to sit on panels, present and debate on topics relevant to child mental health and neurodiversity. For example, she took part in the renowned “What if …….” Debate at the Institute of Education  on the topic “What if …. The world really did revolve around teenagers” which you can watch here.
