Parenting with connection - do you want more harmony in your home?

Aware Parenting is based on the work of Aletha Solter, PhD, a Swiss American developmental psychologist, international speaker, consultant and author of 5 books. 


Aletha is recognised internationally as an expert in healthy attachment, healing from stress and trauma and creating cooperation without the use of punishments and rewards.


Aware Parenting is about fostering an emotionally supportive, strong and connected relationship between parents and children, where everyone's needs are met, honoured and respected. 

As an Aware Parenting Coach, I can help you understand and respond to your child by looking beyond their behaviour to their underlying feelings.

I can support you with tools and strategies that help your child to come back into balance and their natural state of being connected, cooperative and willing to contribute.  This is by utilising their natural healing mechanisms of play, laughter and supported emotional release (tears, tantrums and raging). 

Parents who follow this approach raise children who are cooperative, empathetic, intrinsically motivated, connected with themselves and their needs, emotionally healthy, compassionate towards others, non violent and without the need to rebel or numb their feelings with drugs or alcohol as they progress into teen and adulthood.

Please contact me to learn more about this approach and how I can help you, your family, your playcentre, school or organisation through workshops, coaching and consultations.
