A fresh perspective - Looking up to the sky through the treetops

Parent & Family Coaching

A fresh perspective can bring peace, calm, joy – and the fun! – back into family life

There’s so much parenting advice out there. In books, blogs, online forums, from well-meaning neighbours and family. It can be confusing and it’s often contradictory. It’s overwhelming or it just isn’t what you want for your kids.

What if you had someone to listen to and support YOU in your personal family situation?

In 1:1 coaching, I can offer you a professional and empathetic ear for your specific questions, concerns and struggles as a parent, and for your individual family situation. Without judgement and in confidence.

Understanding Children Better – Courses for parents

Exploring new paths in life as a family

Understanding Children Better is an in-person, group course that offers you a fresh perspective on life as a parent and family.

In eight weekly meetings with other parents, you’ll find out what scientific research tells us about child development, see your child’s behaviour in a different light and develop an understanding for their emotions and what it is they – and you – really need.

I offer two courses: for parents of toddlers & preschoolers aged 1-5 years and for parents of school children aged 6-12 years.

What other parents say about working with me

Totally fabulous! You are really wonderful; very approachable, easy to connect with online. I felt immediately comfortable being vulnerable with you about my parenting insecurities, and trusted your experience. It’s clear that you are a pro, you asked very insightful and clarifying questions. I felt immediately understood and supported, and left with real and actionable info.

Working with Karen really helped me!
Karen’s very likeable and had a way of making me feel very comfortable. As a coach, she not only shared her knowledge but saw me as as a person. She connected with me on a personal level, which enabled me to build trust. She was well prepared for our sessions and introduced each topic thoughtfully, which I think is really important when talking about emotional topics like children, being a mum, and relationships. She listened carefully to me and was attuned to my way of thinking. Karen has a great deal of expert knowledge and offered new ways of seeing things that all made a lot of sense to me. I left our coaching sessions with lots of new ways of thinking as well as a concrete idea of what I could do differently in our everyday family life. I always felt as though she was listening to me and that she was hearing me. That was very helpful and exactly what I want as a client.

Karen’s very empathetic and a great coach who finds wonderful words.
Tamara, Mum of three
The course was very valuable for me. After just one module, I was able to see our daily routine and the way our child was behaving in a different light. I could see why she was behaving in that way and understand what she really needed. We made a small adjustment to our daily routine, which had the big effect that now I and my kids can start our day less stressed, happier and feeling more connected to one another.
