How I can Help
Why struggle alone with questions and difficulties?
I am here to help and assess what the key issues are so that I can offer support.

I can offer one-off webinars; 4-week courses or day-schools. Workbooks accompany each session.

Finding Relationship Balance Can Be Hard, but it Doesn’t Have To Be
Maintaining a balanced life is becoming increasingly more important for your personal health and well-being in a fast-paced, modern world. This can be difficult to achieve in a busy family or in a high-pressured job, or whether seeking a new direction. What Matters Most? There is no right or wrong answer to this. It is especially important not to compare yourself to others. I can help you find what matters most by building your Life Map or your Relationships Map – you will then see where to put our focus, what, and who can help you achieve the balance you seek.

My approach is to personalise support to your needs. I like to balance this with accredited interventions including Parenting Packages, Goal Maps or Stress Management and Relaxation Techniques.
This can be delivered as a one-off support session or a series of sessions.
I spend time talking about where you are now, what are you hopes and dreams for the future. Once we have a goal in mind, we can plan your journey and support sessions to take you there. This is a personal experience and I like to work on a one-to-one or a single-family basis to match support to need.
What is unique is my holistic approach as finding balance and support for parenting often involves working on relationships and managing stress and having a clear vision of where you want to be underpins this process.
