Workshops

Mindful Parenting Workshops run during the week and on Saturdays. During the sessions you will get plenty of opportunity to practice the skills between sessions, ask questions and feedback so that your learning is fully supported and interactive.  

These are small group workshops, you will start the course knowing your personal goals and this will be the focus of your learning.  I run all the workshops myself so you can be confident that you are being supported by a knowledgeable and highly experienced educator who will facilitate your learning.  In order to benefit fully from the course, it is important to attend every week.  

The Workshops are suitable for with children of any age from pregnancy all the way up to adulthood. Whilst the key skills you learn are suitable for all ages, I do group Parents together with children of a similar age on the Mindful Parenting Workshops to maximise the learning experience.

Mindfulness Practice for Parents
 
Many parents want to be more patient around their children but struggle in the moment to maintain this.  Whether it’s a toddler tantrum, stubborn child or difficult teenager, when we are faced with big feelings and challenging behaviour it can feel impossible to remain calm and role model the emotional management skills that we are so keen for our children to learn yet still struggle to practice ourselves.  The skills of mindfulness teach us how to notice our triggers, to be more aware of our own big feelings and then how to manage them so we don’t explode them onto our children or teens and are able to regulate our emotions so we can co-regulate with them.  Join this four week workshop for parents of children of all ages from birth upwards and find your calm place.
Living as a Mindful Parent
 

These monthly sessions are intended to provide ongoing support for Parents as they live and parent in a more mindful way, using strategies learnt either on a workshop or through their own development.  Each session stands alone and focuses on a specific parenting topic which can create challenges in our day to day lives.  The sessions last for 2 hours and you can register by clicking on the link below
