I have created an evidence-based pathway for connection and emotional regulation that parents can follow one step at a time.
Welcome to the Pathway Home for Parents
Come Home To Yourself
Find Your Way Home as a Parent
In the storms of parenting, it can be hard to find your centre that keeps you balanced. You can feel dis-connected from your own resources and wisdom and find it hard to know how to connect with your child to support them in their emotional storms.
Finding your anchor helps you to feel safe, connected and centred again.
You Self-Connect & Self-Regulate (find your balance) and you trust yourself again as a parent.
You feel at Home.
Guide Your Child Home
Co-Regulate & Connect with Your Child
Now that you feel at Home in yourself, your child begins to learn how to find their way Home too.
When you feel self-connected and regulated you can connect with your child and meet them in their storm.
You can co-regulate with them by supporting them to move through their emotional storms and experiences and find balance.
When their storm meets your balance and calm, they find their balance & calm too.
So, with your guidance, you show them how to self-regulate by co-regulation and trust.
They learn the skills and gifts of self-connection and self-regulation.
Work Together to Solve Together
Together You Can Work Things Out and Find Solutions
When we feel connected and regulated, our brains are more integrated - we can think more clearly, listen, focus and come up with solutions that felt a million miles away when we felt un-anchored and dis-connected.
You and your child can find solutions to difficulties that up until this point felt over-whelming, unmanageable, un-fixable or hopeless.
Finding solutions together, you and your child have the direct experience of knowing that you can work things out in your relationship and that you both have the power to find solutions to difficulties big and small.
Deepen Trust, Grow Strong & Thrive
Trust Nurtures Resilience and the Potential to Thrive
Now that you and your child know that you can repair the tears of conflict between you and find solutions to difficulties, you learn to deepen trust between you and within you.
You grow stronger together and you both grow more resilient to meet the storms and challenges of life because you trust that you can move through them.
You can grow a stronger, more trusting relationship with yourself.
And so can your child.
When we trust in ourselves, we can trust our capacity to thrive.
Now that you and your child have a deep sense of feeling at Home in yourselves, it allows you both to grow from life’s challenges and to thrive.
