What does the day cover?

The day will run from 9.30am for a 10.00am start and will finish at 5.00pm.

The structure of the day will include exploration, exercises, and experiential work.

The Territory:

  • Key developmental milestones
  • Tuning into the spirit of my child. What is happening in their bodies and brains?
  • Understanding and supporting resilience in my little one

Becoming a Parent:

  • The relationship between how I was parented and what I do (or don’t do)
  • Where do I need support…(where am I off balance with parenting….. and what pushes my buttons?)
  • Developing my ‘parent muscle’


  • Establishing a rhythm with sleep, movement, food, love and boundaries
  • Shifting sands – just when you think you have it cracked, the next stage appears

The work will be a mixture of taught and group/pair work based around Hoffman tools.

“Today has helped me to realise that the problems I face are not unique, that many parents are going through similar issues. Today’s course has given me strategies and advice and made me feel empowered to make the changes I need to make…”
(J, workshop attendee, February 2017)
