My motto: We have no rights over our kids – only obligations and responsibilities.

It is our ‘job’ to raise our kids to become independent and responsible for themselves, the environment and others. But we can only do this if we have ‘earned’ the right to do so through ongoing connection and relationship building with our children that enables us to work together as a team.

Areas I cover

Published author

Thank you for visiting my little book shop where you will find my latest books. 

I have a deep passion for writing both books, articles and blogs. I find that words have energy and power to help parents grow, heal and get inspired. Hopefully my books (and blogs) will make a real difference to overwhelmed mums and dads and add some hope in their daily family life. That there are some simple but powerful tools that can be explored in order to become the parent they need to be in order to create the family they want.

I am here to offer some free support that might be of interest to the parents in your school community or organisation.

Corporate Parenting
Family, Life & Work Integration

Parents today, particularly working parents, are under more pressure than ever. This pressure can often leave parents confused, frustrated and stressed, that will have a  knock on effect on your children’s well-being, overall family and work life balance

I support working parents switching from work mode into family life – from employee to mum or dad, and vice versa. This will help them maintain their connection to home and still perform well at work.

By working closely with parents (or your company) I can help create a more harmonious home, where parents feel more in charge of overall life. 

Relocation/international family move

Are you moving your employee and family overseas? If the move has been properly planned and supported it is likely to have less of a negative effect on each family member. If the family adapts well to the move and things at home are balanced and running smoothly your employee is much more likely to settle well into his/her new role.

Work, life balance

Support your employees to create a family, work & life system that is tailored to their individual situation and values.

Adjusting to a new executive position in the company

Moving up in a company is an exciting and rewarding opportunity but also comes with new pressures and expectations for the employee and his/her family. I support your employees creating a work, life and family system that works for their situation and individual values. A healthy relationship between family and work enables your employees to focus and enjoy their work knowing that home is more harmonious.

How can we work together? I run online parenting seminars tailor made for the needs of your parents. Additionally, I offer one2one parenting support for the parents who needs additional support to create the family, life & work balance that work for them and their individual situation.  CLICK for more information about corporate parent coaching

One to One Coaching
How does coaching work?

I can offer you individual/couples support in overcoming challenges within your family. In a safe and non-judgmental environment I will create a space for you to explore what is going on in your family life.  In the sessions we will focus on ‘looking forward’, setting achievable and realistic goals for the future. I also offer online coaching.

What to expect from parent coaching

I believe that everyone is capable of working things out for themselves. After all, we know our children and ourselves better than anyone else.  However, we might not always have the time, energy or inspiration to do so without a little help.

My coaching philosophy

The two best things you can do for your children are: Looking after yourself; if you are ok the family will be ok and parent as a team with your partner!

Connect before correct! As parents we will always have to deal with our kids’ behaviour at some stage. But this will become so much easier if our starting point is closeness and trust instead of distance and hostility.

“No one said that parenting was going to be easy!”

By attending parent coaching I can’t guarantee that your family struggles and battles will go away. But I CAN guarantee that you will walk away with solutions that will fit your individual family life.

There is no ‘right way’ of parenting – only the  right way for YOU and your family:

All families are unique and all family members are individual. Together we will explore a parenting style that works for you and fits your family values and situation.

“The weak don’t ask for help so stay weak…asking for help is a sign of strength, growth and change” – John Wooden

Parent Coaching is ‘Time Out’ for you, to invest in your family’s future.

We are our kids strongest role model:

With our behaviour, attitude and way of thinking we set the scene at home. I help you to understand how your kids see, feel and hear you in order to create an atmosphere that you are happy for your kids to copy!
