 Emotion focused Parenting: 

Learn effective tools to connect to your child/teen and reduce problematic behaviour in any situation. 

  • If you struggle with setting limits or boundaries? 
  • Does your child have big feelings? 
  • Do you sometimes not know how to deal with your child? 
  • Is there conflict in your house? 
  • Do you feel like you never have enough time when your kids are acting out? 


This workshop series will give you tools to help you manage these situations and more. You will leave these workshops feeling more confident and at peace with parenting. Additionally, you will be able to connect with your children in a meaningful and powerful way.
