When life throws up difficulties for you and your child to meet, beginning with yourself can feel like the last thing you need to do.

And yet, empowering yourself with skills and resources to self-connect for emotional balance may be the greatest gift you ever give to yourself and your family.

Being a parent can be overwhelming – no matter what age your child is.

Being pulled in so many directions with so much being asked of us can cause us to feel dis-connected from our own life-source: ourselves

Being a parent can also be messy – because parenting is about relationships.

And relationships are messy.

Being a parent can leave us feeling guilty – because there is so much responsibility and expectation to get it right.

And we forget that we can’t get it right all of the time. No one can.

Any of these experiences sound familiar?

  • You would love to stop and connect with yourself again, but it always gets pushed to the last item on your to-do list.
  • You get overwhelmed with the busy-ness of being a parent and days and weeks blur into one - you are just getting by - surviving, definitely not thriving.
  • Your child struggles with emotional storms (anxiety, emotional ups and downs, relationship or self-esteem difficulties) and gets easily triggered.
  • You get triggered by your child, and don’t know how to stop the ‘trigger-cycle’ of you both triggering each other.
  • You find it hard to connect with your child, no matter what you seem to do, or what approach you seem to take.
  • You have tried different courses, followed advice but nothing seems to be solving the difficulties you or your child face..
  • You often doubt yourself as a parent and get confused by all the conflicting advice ‘out there’.
  • How you were parented gets in the way of the parent you would love to be
  • Your ‘Good Enough’ doesn’t seem enough. 


Yes, sounds like me!
