Our courses and parent coaching sessions are safe environments, designed to support parents through the journey of caring for children from 0-18 years. These spaces can help you reset your family atmosphere, show you different ways of parenting through the ups and downs of family life and help you discover the joys of being a parent.

Our parent coaches in particular can support you with new ideas, insights and strategies so that parenting might be more enjoyable and less stressful. They have years of experience supporting and coaching parents through the types of everyday challenges that all parents face. Coaches can also let you know, if should they feel you would benefit from professional counselling or the support of a psychologist.

All information collected during our courses and parent coaching sessions is done so for the purpose of providing a service to support the parenting challenges you are facing. All information is kept in confidence and held securely within our CRM and physical document storage systems.
