Parenting can be a time of exquisite joy, hope, and love. It can also be frustrating, confusing and tiring. I’ve been there.
I love parenting. I have three wonderful children, two of whom are now adults and one teenager still at home.
My love of parenting has carried over into my professional life. For many years, I ran a drop-in program at a family resource centre. And I have helped parents from diverse walks of life to better understand kids through my workshops and keynotes.
But sometimes, a one-on-one approach is needed. Through my parent consulting practice, I help families address their children’s challenging, confusing and troubling behaviours.
I do not offer prescriptive strategies. I help parents make sense of their children’s behaviours through a developmental perspective inspired by the Neufeld approach. This enables my clients to address the root of the problem – the underlying emotions that drive difficult behaviours.
