Bernadette (Incredible Years and Toolbox)

I wanted to become a more conscious parent, whose reactions and reasons aren’t dished out without purpose or thoughts. This course has really made me more aware of who each family member is, how they respond, why they act like they do, and given me ways in which I can best communicate with them. I’ve enjoyed every minute, learnt a lot, and know it’s now up to me to refer back to the book and keep myself accountable!

Hannah (Toolbox)

The main benefit for me was in gaining connection with my child! An understanding learned that you are there to coach them into becoming their own person, and helping them through their challenges.

Jess (Incredible Years)

I felt quite overwhelmed and out of control at the start of this course. I feel so much different now, and have so many tools to use. My continued focus is on the bottom of the pyramid techniques – connection, play, positivity, ambulance at the top of the cliff, and the judgement free zone of people who really understood what I was going through. Wonderful teachers – thank you so much for everything.
