Why invest in parent coaching? Parenting can be the toughest and most rewarding job in the world, but it can be easier and more rewarding than most parents realize. But it really does take a village and most parents simply don't have enough support. You deserve educated non-judgmental empathic support, you deserve connection, you deserve to have a place where you can feel heard and where some of your needs are met ! Most families are more willing to invest in their house, land, plants, furniture, clothes, car, physical health, but struggle to invest in emotional health. Yet emotional health and wellbeing is essential to happiness and harmony.
"Amazing!! I was hanging on every word .... I found the concepts that Genevieve was explaining to be both amazing and so obvious and simple at the same time. I think every parent needs the opportunity to learn peaceful parenting techniques. The effects in my family have been incredible. I'm loving this new way of listening to my children and how it consistently brings out the best in them." - Sandra, Auckland, NZ
Parents gain huge benefits from one on one consultations and advice in relation to their parenting challenges. These consultations offer a balance of information and the support that the parent needs to work out how they can better meet their own needs, their child's needs and achieve more balance in meeting the needs of the whole family. Genevieve also guides clients, who seek it, to develop skills in relaxation, self-regulation, mindfullness and meditation that they can access at stressful moments in their day to day life.

If you'd love to share some of the peaceful parenting concepts and strategies with a group of friends, or perhaps a parent's group that you belong to, you could talk to me about arranging a date and time for me to give a specific talk or a general question and answer session for your group. We can either set up a telecall or skype call. If it's a telecall, I will give you a number and each person rings in from their home, or we can do it through skype from each person's pc, in which case each person who has a camera will be seen on the screen OR you can come together for a skype session at one person's home.

I have to admit that I was doubtful that these techniques could bring positive results with my five year old son, but I'm constantly amazed at how quickly he calms down and actually starts to listen to me when he can see that I'm really listening to him and I can see how much more confident he becomes when he sees that I'm really there to help him and support him. I've seen him as such a little fighter, but now I can see that he's just been trying to show me that he needs to see and feel my support and belief in him." Annie, Whangarei, NZ.
