 Customer Feedback

  1. [The course] is well worth  doing. It brought a part of me to life that has been so enjoyable. I especially liked how coaching focuses so much on the capability of the parent and their ability to have the answers/solutions for all their own

    Mother, Midwife Teacher, Parent Coach

  2. I would fully recommend this course. This course is a journey of self-awareness, non-judgement, learning new skills, life skills, hope and positive affirmation.

    I am calmer, more aware, reflect more, more nonjudgmental. My three children have benefitted greatly. To quote one of my children - 'Mum, you are different since you did this course. You listen more and you seem to understand more.'


  3. This course has made me view my parenting differently and increased my awareness greatly, it has improved my connection with my kids.
