This was Claire's first book. It was written out of Claire's therapeutic experience. Grounded is a therapeutic book that deals with a child's behaviour, thinking and core relationships. The book provides answers to the following questions, What is the big question every child is asking all the time?, What is at the root of children's behaviour? and How can adults help children bring out their best?
This book is a message of hope, bright, bold colours help to express this visually. The contrasting purple, recognises that a journey is not always straight forward. Purple as well as traditionally symbolising suffering also symbolising suffering. Thinking can change out behaviour, cogs were used as a recognisable metaphor. Parent and child sitting back to back calm and at home with one another. This depicts Claire's desired out come for all adult, child relationships
