What our Members say

"I loved the feeling that I wasn't alone, and that other parents were going through the same battles with their children.

Also the practical tips that I could take home and implement straight away.  We have seen such a wonderful improvement in the relationship between our child and us since trying out some techniques.  He's much more responsive and engaged with us."

Chantel, on the Raising Toddlers Course

"Through the use of the tool kits provided, group sessions and coaching I have achieved better work life balance and am feeling happier and more fulfilled - which can be a challenge with four young children and working parents.  I highly recommend this program."

Llew, on the Membership and Coaching

"I wasn't able to attend yesterday unfortunately however I have played back the recording and I have to say, though I am relatively organised for a first time mum, I definitely took some key take outs from the session.  

I feel even more prepared having watched it - thanks!"

Kristina, on Preparing for Parental Leave Course
