Our mission to help you.
Everyone on the team that you will get behind you at Smart Start Minds is dedicated to delivering outstanding results that go far beyond concentration training. Our multi-skilled team enables us to build and deliver bespoke solutions for our clients that address their specific needs.
Dr. Thomas Dannhauser is a medically qualified consultant and research psychiatrist with more than 20 year's clinical experience in the NHS and 15 year's researching the brain and developing the training programmes we use today. His pioneering combination of comprehensive concentration health screening, unbiased attention testing, the most advanced neurofeedback training methods and psychological methods are so successful that we can guarantee lasting results.
Co-founder Sulette Snyman is our most experienced neurofeedback trainer having practiced full time for the past 15 years. She has qualified as a Play Therapist to offer the holistic care that children with concentration problems often require and as a counselling psychologist to do the same for adults.
Our Medical Director, Dr. Faye Dannhauser, is an experienced NHS and private general practitioner and responsible for our registration with the Care Quality Commission in the UK, which ensures high standards of care across our services.
The core team is supported by associated specialists who help and advise us and our clients.
Dr. Monika Bajaj is a Consultant Paediatrician and ADHD specialist, we refer to her for physical health problems and ADHD diagnosis and medication treatment when required.
Dr Sam Jayraj, ENT Consultant, helps when we discover during training that a client has a hearing problem, usually due to glue ear.
Shola Alabi is a scientist, teacher and parenting coach who advises and helps with curriculum-specific bespoke programmes that we offer, and regularly talks on parenting and preparing for exams to help our clients. She is the author of three short and practical books for parents on understanding children, getting organised for a school year and getting your child into a good school.
All of our Concentration Plus trainers are carefully selected, trained and certified by us and supervised by Drs. Dannhauser and Sulette Snyman. Our trainers who are also psychologists or coaches are assigned to clients when these skills can be of additional benefit. All training sessions are recorded and monitored for quality.
We develop and use our own methods, equipment, and software to deliver our programmes. The unique experience and expertise of our team and the freedom to innovate allows us to deliver the most advanced programmes to you.
