Parenting course for children between 2-5 years old. Toddlers can pose many challenges to parents. This course addresses the best psychological methods in how we can raise our children to be happy and balanced. Currently being run in English, for parents in Nyon and covers the Vaud and Geneva areas.
I believe that parenting is the most profoundly creative living act that anyone will ever engage in. It is also often really challenging. Surprisingly, despite much knowledge there is no psychological training and little support given to parents as we embark upon the adventure. I take a pragmatic approach, revealing the psychological essentials of how our parenting style deeply impacts how our babies, children and teens develop.
It is common to reach difficulties and impasses with our children. Combining research from psychology and neuroscience, I provide personalised support, guidance and insights into how we can give our babies, kids and teens the best psychologically healthy parenting possible. We can have immense effects on our children's capacity for problem solving, self awareness, emotional intelligence, self - esteem, confidence and how their systems are pre-disposed to respond to all manners of stress.
