Services available to support you on your parenting journey...
Conscious Parent Coaching
via Skype or phone, this modality is for parents who are motivated to make change. Your children might be developing ok but you feel there’s a better way! Coaching will help bring awareness to current parenting philosophies that will bring greater connection between you and your child.
via face to face sessions, this is necessary when pregnancy or parenting is overwhelming and there is a feeling of stuckness, aloneness or unempowerment. There may be other things impacting the pregnancy or parenting journey, ie. Post natal depression, fears related to your mothering role, adoption relinquishment, traumatic birth, same sex role identification, integrating your own childhood experiences, a conflictual divorce or separation, death or loss of a family member (including miscarriage and abortion), single parenting, conflicting parenting values amongst family members, overwhelming emotions in both yourself and your child, etc.
via face to face sessions, this is necessary when your child has experienced a traumatic event or is displaying challenging or withdrawn behaviours.
Small Group Workshops
are wonderful for connecting with other like minded parents and exploring specific topics around parenting. Exploring this journey with peers is incredibly healing and supportive. Topics may include Mindfulness in Parenting, Preventing Power Struggles, Understanding Attachment, Parenting Styles, Supporting Emotions, Parent Guilt, etc.
what a wonderful way to truly connect inside and with others. Parents need ‘time in’, time to refuel and to look at what’s really important in their lives. During a retreat we will explore the origins of our relationship blueprint, where it came from, how it has played out in our lives and how we can create the relationships with ourselves and our family members that we truly want.
