Be the parent

you want to be.

the problem

Feeling like you're failing as a parent, is simply soul crushing.

You've read heaps of parenting books and got confused by all the conflicting advice.


You've breathed with your emotions, tried being besties with your kids, you've even been super positive: but you still feel overwhelmed and are yelling way more than you'd like.

You need tools that support both you and your children. But without a map, you're not sure where to start.


Hi, I’m

Hi I’m Anna, a mum of three and a parenting consultant, researcher and lecturer.

For over decade, I’ve consulted and coached parents, teachers and care-givers in workshops, courses and private sessions.


My work as a researcher and lecturer in Early Childhood Education and child development underpins all my consultations and trainings. My unique skill is to combine the science of child development, with my Nonviolent Communication skills and coaching experience - to create practical approaches any caregiver can use.

I share the tools, the insights and the support you need, to be the parent you want to be.


Three ways I offer support:

Work with me in a private setting, where your needs, as well as the needs of your children, are heard and met.

(online sessions)

Group sessions offer safe spaces, free from judgement, enabling connection with parents and care-givers facing similar challenges.

(online & in-person sessions)

I regularly write articles about all aspects of parenting and child development
