Helping you understand your young people, so you can get on better.

“Mirror sighed. “I believe everyone deserves a happily ever after, but I think that happy endings don’t just happen by accident – you can’t wait for one. You have to make them happen.”

Can we have a heart to heart?

Most struggles are, at their heart, misunderstandings of others’ thoughts, feelings and actions. Relationships can feel confusing, stressful and stuck.

Using an integration of coaching and counselling, I help you to understand others – and yourself – so you can feel clear, calm and in control of your life.

What you need

With all the demands on you,  you need is a simple set of ideas. Understanding your young people brings a sense of confidence that you are a good parent and know what to do to bring up your kids to be happy, responsible & independent adults.

Five Secrets to Happy Children is that system. It will help you see what’s going on,  help you choose how to respond and help you find the best ways to teach your children the skills they need, so you can all get on with having a happy family life.

Whether you choose Parent Coaching, Counselling or a Masterclass with a group, you get the same system, the same strategies and the results that you want.
