Boost your parenting confidence - learn how to use my
Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting strategies with your child or teen
6-week online parenting course

You already know that parenting can be one of the most rewarding roles you’ll ever take on, and it can also be one of the toughest. But I also know, after decades of successfully helping thousands of families across the world, that having a set of reliable and effective strategies will help you experience more of the parenting rewards you deserve.

Learn the strategies, skills, and approach that will
Maximise Cooperation, Self-reliance, and Self-esteem in your children.
I developed my approach and strategies by working with children and teens who had learning difficulties, including ADHD, dyslexia, Asperger's syndrome, and other neuro-diverse conditions. And very early in my career I discovered that those same strategies were also highly effective with all children.

Here’s what one parent recently wrote about working with me:

‘I do not exaggerate when I say that in my eyes, you have saved our family. This Christmas holidays was the most enjoyable I can remember. My heart glowed with warmth as our boys played together and enjoyed each other’s company continually. [Our eldest son] has gone from a child who didn’t make much effort in anything but creative subjects at school, to someone who puts all his effort into everything he does. And we no longer have heavy dark energy in our home. It is a miracle!’

So if you want to experience the same kind of transformative results in your family, add your name to our waiting list, we’ll be sure to let you know when the teens course is open for registration.

Will you record the sessions?
All sessions will be recorded, but these are for participants only. The recordings will be available following each session, and for six months after the end of the course.

Will there be homework?
Of course! I’ll be teaching you very practical strategies and skills that you’ll want to start putting into practice immediately.

When will I get the handbook?
My team will send you the handbook a few days before the first session so that you can read through it before we get started.

What’s in the handbook?
I’ve created the handbook to give you as much information and support as possible so that after each session and after you’ve completed the course you’ll have something easy to refer to. Included are summary pages of the main strategies that give you an overview and some quick tips. There are also plenty of worksheets for logging your plans and listing your progress as you work with the strategies. The handbook will help you get insight into what you’re already doing well and why, and also which issues need the most improvement and, of course, what to do about them! You also get to record your successes, an important part of building your confidence around your new-found know-how. I’m sure the handbook will become your go-to resource as you continue to see and experience improvements in family life.

Can my partner, other relatives or a friend join me on the sessions?
Yes! Ahead of the first session on Tuesday 4 October, my team will send out the Zoom joining information. We’re happy for other people in your household to join you in the sessions.

What if my partner isn’t interested?
The strategies you’ll learn not only help you to become more skilled and confident at motivating your children, but you’ll be able to use them with the adults in your life too. And when you demonstrate how the strategies are getting positive results with your children, and helping you to be and feel calmer, it’s likely that your partner will want to use them too.

Can I pay in instalments?
I’m sorry, but we’re not offering any instalment plans for payment of the course.

What happens if I need to cancel, can I get a refund?
If you cancel with more than 7 days’ notice, we’ll give you a full refund.
No other refunds are available.

Do I need to give you any information about my family before the course?
When you register and pay for your place, we’ll ask for a few details about your family situation. This will help me to understand the types of issues and challenges you might be facing, and will help me to support you through the course. Please add as much detail as you think will be useful.

What if I haven’t read any of the Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting books?
I’d love you to read any of the books in my Calmer, Easier, Happier Parenting series because I’ve written them to give you as much help as possible, along with lots of case studies and examples. And during the parenting course you’ll learn my foundation strategies. To learn even more strategies you can buy my books on Amazon as paperbacks, ebooks, and audiobooks.

What other resources are available?
There are plenty of free resources here on the website.
On the Blog are listed videos, podcasts, and articles - you can find out more here.
My series of audiobooks cover the five foundation strategies as well as some specific topics.
Details of the audiobooks are here.

I can’t do the course this time, when’s the next one?
We haven’t set the dates for the next course. If you’re already on our mailing list you’ll be kept informed about the dates for our next courses. Join our mailing list here and we’ll let you know when the next course opens for registration.
