Empowering you in your most important Role

You don’t have to figure this out alone.

Hi! I’m Zoe

I’m a certified parenting coach with a master’s degree in child psychology and most importantly, I'm a mother.​ 

​In my opinion parenting is both the hardest and most important thing we will ever do, yet we are expected to know how to do it well without any training. There is no other role with such high stakes where no training is required!

Life with kids can be confusing, frustrating and challenging at times, but it doesn’t have to be such a struggle. Whether your kids won't listen to you until you lose your temper,  you are stuck in daily power struggles with your kids, or if you are just baffled by your kids behaviour,  I can support you to create a more peaceful home, where there is more cooperation, less fighting and your kids can thrive. 

About Peaceful Parenting

Peaceful parenting is based on the latest scientific research showing how to raise respectful, emotionally healthy, resilient and self motivated kids. It was developed by my mentor Dr Laura Markham and is a non-punitive, connection-based approach. Peaceful parenting is NOT permissive parenting, it uses lots of firm limits but they are always set with kindness and empathy. It is based on these three key principles that I can help you to master:

Sorting Litter for Recycling
Self-regulation

 

When parents self-regulate, children reap the benefits of a calmer brain for the rest of their lives.

These children will have more self control, be more resilient, more responsible and will be more contented. 

Connection

 

When children feel connected to their caregivers, they are not only more cooperative, but they thrive with unshakable self-esteem. 

Emotion Coaching 

 

Kids don’t thrive when they feel controlled; in fact controlling parenting is a fast track to defiance. In my coaching sessions, I teach parents how to emotion coach their children instead of trying to control them. This leads to children with greater emotional intelligence and a strong internal compass, so children are more likely to do the right thing even when no-one is looking.

How I Can Support You

In one-to one sessions over Zoom, we will work together on the difficulties you are having with your child/children. I will help you to discover what might be underlying these difficulties and give you specific tools and strategies to help you to resolve them. I will support you through this process with empathy and without judging you and will trouble shoot anything you are struggling with. ​

Alternatively, you could choose to have your parenting question answered via email.

We have had quite a number of people help us over the years, from different places, and we are both in agreement that you have been the most helpful person by far and away!  We really buy into the values of the Peaceful Parenting but we also likes the way you were prepared to offer opinions, be quite proactive in asking us to think differently about some occasions, help us to pick apart something, and you seemed to really take on board our situation.  I also have really appreciated your written responses.

Bryony and Ian
