**Due to current circumstances, please consider the My Parent Toolkit Academy - a 6-module self-paced, online program that delivers similar content to our regular 5 or 10 week in-person courses. (Further details below)**
Based on content designed by The Parent Practice in London, these 5 or 10 week positive parenting courses offer you practical and useful tools and techniques to help you engage with and raise your children in a way that makes all of you feel good about yourselves.
My aim is not to tell you how to parent, but to equip you with strategies to help you parent your child/children they way you want to. The result? You will find you'll have a more peaceful family life with calmer children, increased engagement and communication. All the content is based on the latest thinking in psychology and child development and designed to be flexible to suit all families and the variety of needs that different families have.
Suitable for parents and carers of children ages 2 to teens, I will help you understand your child's temperament, help you form and strengthen your united front in the home, build the connection between you and your children and always work within your personal and family values.
Parenting courses are not for dysfunctional families. If we can accept that we go through schooling to acquire knowledge and learn life and career skills, why do we expect to know how to parent our children instinctively? In many situations, our gut instincts will be okay but sometimes we intuitively know that there must be another way... come and learn some very useful skills and knowledge to help you on your parenting journey!
