WHAT IS A PARENT COACH?
A parenting coach works with parents to help them become the parent they want to be. Many factors get in the way of us being an effective, wise and loving parent. Often our anger is out of control and relates to issues that are linked to our own childhood and actually have nothing to do with our children, yet too often they become our target. Often we're unfulfilled in our significant relationships and are dealing with unmet needs, abuse, an absent partner, or other generational baggage. Often despite feeling grateful for our children, our partners, our families and friends, we have a sense that something is missing from our lives. Trying to deal with any one of these factors prevents us from being the parent we really want to be.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THERAPY AND PARENT COACHING?
Therapy focuses on issues of pathology, healing and unresolved psychological issues of the past. Coaching on the other hand, begins with the present and assists clients in setting very clear, and specific goals that they want to achieve in the future. While the past may be discussed on occasion, it is addressed in the context of discovering what is blocking the client from moving forward. In parent coaching, the primary focus is on movement and taking action. What happened in the past has everything to do with what we are today, but we can only satisfy our basic needs right now and plan to continue satisfying them in the future.

WHAT IS A CONSCIOUS PARENT?
Conscious Parenting cannot be defined in one way. It's more of an attitude and a way of being. A conscious parent is inspired to learn from their child in the same way that they are inspired to guide their child. A conscious parent does not take on an attitude of ownership of their child but rather the parent-child relationship is seen as a partnership. Conscious parents recognize the gifts in each challenging moment and welcome those moments as opportunities for growth and incresed awareness and connection to their child.
Conscious parents take resposibility for their triggers rather than blame their child.
Conscious parents know how to remain calm and non-reactive in the face of conflict.
Conscious parents chose engagement and connection over discipline and punishment.
Conscious parents recognize that the ability to achieve peace and harmony in the home is directly related to the degree of peace and harmony they experience within themselves.
Conscious parents recognize that their relationship with themselves is the greatest influence in their child's happiness.
A CONSCIOUS PARENT LEARNS TO:
Pause and observe their thoughts when feeling emotionally charged
Help their child cope with anxious feelings
Achieve greater connection
Listen without Judgement/criticism
Teach and guide rather than discipline and punish
Hold limits/boundaries for their child that are child-serving not self-serving
