It’s hard to focus at work and enjoy life’s challenges when being a parent leaves you stressed and drained. Parenting clinics provide a unique opportunity for working parents to access expert one-to-one advice on the specific issues troubling their family well-being and work-life harmony.
A weight off my shoulders

The session was brilliant. Having the opportunity for a group session (to know you are not alone) followed by a 1:1 was great. I didn’t shout once at my children last night or this morning and they behaved brilliantly.
Lots of ideas
Lots of ideas about how to tackle the problems I face daily.
a lot of value
I found a lot of value out of the session and it gave me specific actions and next steps as to how to deal with the issue... It's great to be able to have a private impartial discussion about my children.
would definitely recommend
I would definitely recommend this to a colleague. It was far more valuable than I ever expected.
