They start full of good intentions but through their own negative voices in their heads they […]
Whenever I begin the process of coaching parents, a mum, or a dad, or a family, they almost always say something like this after the first meeting ‘I/we should have started this conversation years ago. I/we have known ‘this’ was a problem for a long time and suppose I/we somehow believed that it would […]
Who is responsible for the choices I make?
Every Monday I post a Parent Coaching Question for you to ponder. Save it on your phone to look at each morning to get you thinking, or pop it up on the fridge in the kitchen to pause to ponder throughout the week. No beating yourself up now ! Just the act of Kaizen – […]
Coaching questions help you to bridge the gap between where you are now, to where you would like to be in your family relationships. Every week I post up a question for you to ponder & reflect on. Some people find it helpful to save the question on their phone to see each morning to […]

Your unconscious replays and […]
AT LAST ! What I’ve been saying FOR YEARS ! 🙂 In the first randomised trial of the effects of cell phone use, University of Kansas and Notre Dame researchers found that when parenting coaches texted and called mothers who had participated in a home-based parenting programme, they were much more likely than the other […]

Without consistent, independent support even our best intentions get overtaken by the stress and circumstances of our daily lives. We all […]
What if I trusted my own judgement ? If you enjoy my weekly questions please forward them on to a friend. 🙂
Here’s my interview with The Coaching Academy where I qualified as a Coach many years ago ! What brought you to coaching? I became very interested in self development and read a great book by Fiona Harrold called “Be Your Own Life Coach” and I wanted to apply this way of working to parenting so […]
What’s going on right now that tells you that you have a problem or an issue with your kids at the moment? What have you done so far to improve things? What small changes could you make just this week to improve things? What’s stopping you from moving forward positively and effectively with this problem? […]
How can I give my child more independence ?
