Parent Coaching

Supporting you on your parenting journey...

Why Parent Coaching?

This is my Mom, Lillian. She is my rock, my mentor, my inspiration and she is the best mother and friend, a girl could ever ask for. She brought me up on her own and like every single mother, fought as hard as she could to give me the best life she possibly could.

Life was a challenge for us for many years for various different reasons. Marital breakdown, career changes, beareavement, house moves and relationship struggles (to name but a few) took a massive toll and impacted both our lives but especially our emotional relationship.

By the time I had reached my teens, between us there was what I would describe, an emotional disconnect, through nobodies fault of course. I felt quite emotionally disconnected from Mom and I didn’t feel able to confide in her about my own inner world or private life for fear of putting even more stress or pressure on her. I think I subconsciously knew that she was suffering with emotional overload and I just didn’t want to add to that.

There was a massive turning point in our relationship, I think it was either my first or second year of secondary school. Mom did a parenting course and my god did it have an extremely positive impact on our connection going forward. She became much more open minded and seemed to approach me with much more tolerance and less fear based judgement. I finally felt that I could open up to her and this was the beginning of a very firm friendship as well as mother-daughter relationship. No doubt there were many other changes to approaches but those are the ones that stick out in my mind the most.

So why Parent Coaching? Quite simply, I want others to experience that transformation in their parent-child relationships and I want to support as many people as I can to do so!

What is Parent Coaching?

You can be coached on absolutely any topic and parenting is no exception. Parent Coaching involves having a chat about your experience of being a parent, looking at your strengths and looking at what areas you may need a little support with.

Many people that have come to me for parent coaching, have done so because they are struggling with their child in some way. Maybe struggling with supporting their Mental and Emotional Wellbeing, finding connecting with their child can be a challenge or maybe their child’s behaviour is something they are finding difficult to understand at this time.

My approach is person centred and completely non-judgemental, we focus on you number 1 in our coaching sessions. We will look at your experiences with fresh perspectives and with the intention of gaining insight in order to try a new approach which we will collaboratively design together. What you will find is that as you try a new approach, make small changes and adjustments within yourself, you will see big changes outside of yourself, including the loved ones who surround you.

As your Coach:

I will be open minded, encouraging, supportive and honest. I will listen to you and your experiences, I will empathise with you and help you to take those experiences and turn them into positive growth and learning. I will show you techniques to change your mindset. I will support and encourage you to take actions towards positive change which will lead to a better life experience.


Parent Coaching is a wonderful way to get support with your parenting journey…

What is Parenting?

I believe that parenting is a journey, whereupon you are blessed with the responsibility of keeping another human being safe, protected, loved and well cared for, in order to grow and develop into a well rounded, independent and competent adult that is capable of looking after itself and its needs.


There is no doubt parenting is a full time job, once we become a parent, we never stop being parents even if your child is not present with you all the time, the responsibility will always linger at the forefront or background of your mind.

It is probably one of the hardest jobs you will ever take on in your life but once you strive to do your best, it will be one of the most rewarding things you will ever do!

What can Parent Coaching do for you?

Coaching can build your self-awareness, your independence and your ability to empower yourself in so many ways. It can empower you to look at yourself in ways you never have before and have moments of enlightenment about your life that you never thought possible. This will reflect so positively in your parenting skills and abilities. Not only will you see and experience the benefits, so will your whole family. Coaching can change your life in ways that you have to experience to believe. I only work with people who are ready for that. I believe that every human being is creative, resourceful, and whole. I also believe that we are beings with unlimited potential. Although you may not feel this at times, this is the position we begin coaching from.


Parent coaching can be a journey of self-discovery and self-mastery. It supports you to merge and recreate your identity as an individual and as a parent. We can explore topics such as emotions, confidence, skills, compassion and love.

I think parenting is like cooking. It depends on the meal or what is needed at the time, you follow a recipe, you gather together all the ingredients you need and you put them altogether in the correct balance. You see how it turns out and if something more needs to be added or taken away, you do so.

Children need your love, attention and engagement. They naturally want to be successful, please you and be like you. They need space to make choices, develop independence and make mistakes for themselves. They need your reassurance and that you are going to be there for them and love them even when they might not deserve it. To do all that, as much as possible, you have to be on top form and in an optimum mindset. Parent Coaching can support you in achieving that goal.

We can discuss topics such as:

  • Retaining/Reclaiming your identity as a person not just a parent
  • Perception over perfection
  • Parental guilt
  • Confident parenting
  • Parenting history and experiences
  • The importance of Attachment and Connection
  • Emotional Intelligence and Regulation
  • Anxiety/Stress Management
  • Ritual and routine
  • Boundaries and tolerations
  • Parental Values
  • Personal Power as a parent
  • Conscious Communication
  • Life Balance and Enjoyment
  • Self-compassion
  • Parental Intuition
  • Self-awareness

Next steps:

  • Let’s have a chat
  • We will pinpoint exactly how you are feeling and what you are looking for
  • We will make sure we are the right fit to work together
  • We will chat more about the Coaching process and what I can do for you
  • Once you are confident that I am the coach for you and you are ready for change then your journey begins!

“The best kind of parent you can be is to lead by example” – Drew Barrymore



When you are heading off on your holidays and you are sitting in the plane, listening to the safety talk right before take off and they tell you the procedure for the oxygen masks, who do they tell you to put the mask on first?

My approach to parent coaching is parent centred. We will look at parenting through the lens of Personal Development and Well-being. We will look at your needs and goals as a parent. We will explore topics that are relevant only to you.

Parent coaching is about supporting and enabling you to be the best parent you can be. I provide a safe and non-judgemental environment where we can investigate what is working well and what you desire to change or improve upon. We should not be striving for perfect parenting, instead I encourage perceptive parenting, fostering love, connection, engagement and emotional acceptance.


I believe that when a parent is peaceful, content and fulfilled, their children will be too.
