About Us

Naella Grew (BA; MA; Grad. Dip. Couns; MBACP) and Janey Downshire (Grad. Dip. Couns; Cert Emotional Literacy; MBACP) are both qualified counsellors who specialise in Teenage Development and Emotional Literacy. Janey has deepened her understanding of emotions and communication through additional research leading to a qualification in Emotional Literacy whilst Naella has pursued postgraduate research culminating in an MA in Counselling. Both have several years of extensive teaching experience across age groups and in formats ranging from small workshops to large group presentations. In addition to focusing on staff and parents, Naella has worked with young adults as a university lecturer on BA and MA courses whilst Janey has focused on sessions with teenagers and pre-teens.

For the past eight years, they have worked together to design a unique range of courses which they deliver through their company Teenagers Translated. Their presentations and workshops distil the most current research in psychology, neuroscience and biochemistry into practical strategies for three different audiences: parents, children and teachers. The courses aim to deepen an understanding of the links between emotions, physiology and behaviour and to promote the sort of communication and environment most likely to promote collaborative behaviour, growth and learning in teenagers and pre-teens.

Teenagers Translated has worked in leading UK Independent schools including Wellington College, Stowe, Aysgarth, Port Regis, Queen Mary’s York, Cundall Manor, Queen Margaret’s York, Tudor Hall, City of London School for Girls, Notting Hill Prep, Tring Park, Cothill House, Cheam School, Dame Bradbury’s, Merchant Taylors’ School for Girls, Ashdown House, St John’s College School, Sherborne Girls School and King’s School Canterbury. Renowned overseas schools include The Doon School, Welham Girls’ School, Woodstock School, Lawrence School and Beau Soleil College
