Parenting Clinics

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 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.

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.

seamless from start to finish

It has been a pleasure working with you and the whole process has been seamless from start to finish. As you know, we were working to quite a tight timeline and this required last minute changes to the media materials, it was therefore great to work with someone who understood these pressures and was happy to turn things around quickly.

brilliant

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.

engaging and lively

I really enjoyed this session. Any question I had to ask seemed to have been pre-empted. Anita is very engaging and kept the session lively.

practical and hopeful

Anita was, as always, an excellent speaker and I found the session very helpful and reassuring... Unlike some other parenting coaches, Anita is always realistic about what working parents can achieve and her advice is always practical and hopeful.

more fun and caring relationship

I have learnt so much about myself and my actions. I have a better understanding of what my children need and we already have a better, calmer, more fun and caring relationship.

  • morning routines
  • sleep/bedtime problems
  • whining, tantrums
  • balancing work and family
  • building children’s self-esteem
  • rudeness and disrespect
