I’m a parent of two children and a parenting coach and counsellor and I’m passionate about parenting! My wish for you is that you really get that with an understanding of child development, these proven communication skills and some techniques to help you with your automatic emotional responses, that you get to love your parenting skills. I have an Advanced Dip in Counselling and communication skills, I’m a master NLP Practitioner (a fancy way of saying I reprogram unconscious behaviours and beliefs for your benefit), a Family and Systemic Constallations Facilitator, a Parent Effectiveness Trainer and I am also a Master Trainer with the Association of the Advancement of Meridian Tapping (AAMET). I have a private practice in Coffs Harbour but previously I worked with the YWCA as an outreach counsellor for teens and their families and also Parentline ACT. For both of these organisations I ran parenting classes. I’ve also consulted with Primary Schools on effective behavour modifications in the classroom and playground and written for school newletters on parenting techniques.
