I’m passionate about helping parents to raise happy, confident and independent children, who are equipped to deal with the challenges in their lives.
I wanted to be the best parent I could be for my two children, but my journey with my daughter was far from straight forward. Going through my own parenting struggles, then witnessing the difference that the coaching model I use made to us as a family, inspired me to want to help other parents.
Parenting my son (now 16) was a breeze. He was calm, well-regulated and happy-go-lucky and I thought I must be getting everything right as a parent. There couldn’t have been a bigger contrast between him and his sister. When she came along, she was always on the go and her tantrums took over family life. I felt judged and criticised and like I was failing as a parent. I thought I’d tried everything – routine, rewards, sanctions, child-led parenting – none of them worked. I blamed her, I blamed myself and I was stuck in a negative cycle.
After one particular meltdown in a supermarket, when I abandoned my trolley full of shopping, just to get her out of the shop, my head was full of all the consequences she would receive, so she would know she hadn’t won. Suddenly, I was hit by the reality of these thoughts – if I was going to win, she was going to lose and she was just 4 years old. I realised that no-one was winning and that something had to change.
I started researching support for parents. I tried a 5-day course on positive parenting, but I wanted more in-depth training and understanding of how best to support families and their children. I wanted something more. Then I came across ‘Language of Listening®.’ The way they spoke and the language they used, about raising happy, authentic children, struck a chord. I did their 2-year training course, applying it to my own children along the way and it worked wonders! Within days, I noticed a difference in myself and in my relationship with my daughter. Here was a technique that not only met her needs, but it met my needs as a parent too. It’s also transformed my relationship with my husband.
As both my children have grown up, we have become closer. They are both secure and confident teenagers and I’m very proud of them. I’m also proud of myself, for recognising my need for change, embracing those changes and growing as a parent and as an individual.
I’m so grateful for the way my whole approach to parenting has changed and the results it’s brought. I love supporting parents on their parenting journey, letting them know that there is hope; that it’s not their fault or their child’s – they just weren’t given the right tools.
It’s my mission to support parents to learn the coaching model I use and teach. It really works!
The model you’re about to learn is as simple as can be. So even if you’re time poor and sleep deprived you can learn a new way to communicate that gets you quickly out of parenting overwhelm and straight into calm.
Not only have I seen the transformation in my own family, I have seen the positive transformation in hundreds of families just like yours.
