Welcome!  I'm Genevieve, an Irish woman living in New Zealand.  I'm a counsellor, parent educator and parent and I've been helping families for 25 years, and really have seen it all, what works and what doesn't!  As someone who grew up in an abusive dysfunctional family, I know how painful it can be when relationships are full of conflict and chaos.  I also know how incredibly rewarding and even healing, it can be to create a peaceful harmonious home for our children.

At the Peaceful Parent Institute, our mission and our passion is to provide the education, support and patient guidance that parents and teachers need.  I have the joy of witnesing those we help dramatically reduce their overwhelm and learn to respond with more patience and skill.  Parents and teachers experience beautiful turnarounds when they master the peaceful parenting approaches that we teach.  We all crave and deserve more peace and harmony!

"With Genevieve, the only Heart to Heart Parenting Instructor in NZ - you will feel utterly supported and deeply inspired, I've known Genevieve for many years, and I'm very excited about this unique training program. I see it as a big step towards creating the world we really want. - I would want her courses filled to the brim I can't imagine anyone better to write and run them"

I loved how the seminar was kept light and playful, I got such great insights into the power and value of emotional release. Also the huge difference between rules and agreements.
