then you both feel awful?
Does parenting feel overwhelming?
You're so not alone and you've so come to the right place!
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!
When children are uncooperative, defiant or aggressive, you need to be using these approaches to decrease reactivity and increase cooperation. Learn what parenting without punishment actually looks like and why it's essential if you want more harmony in your home!
We regularly run Peaceful Parenting seminars for parents and professional development for educators around New Zealand. Genevieve can be booked for speaking events in New Zealand and Australia.
Join our Peaceful Parent Village membership to gain access to our Peaceful Parenting Step by Step eCourse plus more eCourses, Zoom video calls with Genevieve, and forums where our PP mentors and Genevieve answer questions.
Our Peaceful Parenting Instructor Training has closed for 2019. If you have a desire to help parents create more harmony in their families as a Peaceful Parenting Instructor and Educator, be sure to enter the email list on the information page.
"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 that she is putting on 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 now have the tools I need to be able to actually be able to discipline my children without punishing 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.
I've gained a deeper understanding of attachement, what to look for, what to notice, and how to help children feel secure. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge.
I now have a deeper understanding of the need for respectful relationships, and being emotionally available and calm and responsive, particularly for children with more challenging behaviours.
Fascinating to learn the differences in insecure attachment styles - Ambivalent vs Avoidant. So simple but to learn to see the importance of crying as a stress release is a real benefit to me.
