COACHING FOR PARENTS

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 you, so you can be there for your children and for yourself. But without a map, you're not sure where to start.

Hi, I’m
Anna
.

Hi I’m Anna, a mum of three, parenting and communication coach, lecturer, Nonviolent Communication trainer.

My mission is to help parents create healthy relationships with their children and themselves and parent in a way that brings more joy and connection. I do that by offering coaching sessions, consultations and workshops for parents, teachers and caregivers.

 

My unique skill is to combine the science of child development, with my Nonviolent Communication skills and coaching experience. I support parents in finding practical approaches to intentionally connect with their children, and move away from unhelpful beliefs, behaviours and thoughts. My work as a researcher and lecturer in Early Childhood Education and child development underpins all my consultations and trainings.


I share the tools, the insights and the support you need, to be the parent you want to be. Because regardless of what your child says, does or chooses not to do - parenting is about you!

sessions

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
