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.
would definitely recommend
I would definitely recommend this to a colleague. It was far more valuable than I ever expected.
A weight off my shoulders
I left feeling as if a weight was lifted off my shoulders (guilt from unrealistic expectations of myself)
improved interactions with my children
This has really improved interactions with my children, improving home life and allowing me to make better choices for my children. I can now more easily embrace the fact that I am a working mum and this provides opportunities and challenges for my family which allows my children to develop and grow rather than something to feel guilty about.
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.
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.
very inspiring talk
Thank you so much for the very inspiring talk you gave and the incredibly helpful 1:1 sessions, we received many positive comments.
I was really pleased with my session with Anita and I found her very knowledgeable.
massive improvement in family life
I am pleased to tell you that we really have seen a massive improvement in family life and have all adjusted well to the changes we've put in place... [our son] as a result is in a much happier place and looking forward to his summer and starting school. He really is doing well!
