How much is too much?

But Is our hard earned cash being well spent?

What’s going to really build more happiness in our homes?

One year I remember there being only one gift  for me under the tree.  One fairly large box – what could it be? When the moment of paper-ripping arrived I dicovered – a red suitcase!

We had a holiday coming up – but a suitcase!

‘Open it,’ my mother urged.

Lifting the lid I discovered a trove of small surprises.  The unexpected , the interesting can be more fun than the ‘must-have- of the-year.’

We want our children to have what we never had.

But what about thinking about what we want them to have that we did have?

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

This course has nourished and supported me, first as a mother, and  helped me understand how to deal with emotional upsets – and most importantly how to enjoy being a parent … happy mother, happy children …

I found it invaluable in my own parenting. My relationship with my children has deepened over the last few months and I can´t thank you enough for all your help and knowledge.

Training as a Parent Coach has given me the skills and confidence to truly work with parents in partnership.

An excellent course. Very well presented. The learning and content within the course is fascinating.
