A little more info and classes
When I was pregnant with my daughter and reading everything I could get my hands on, I realised that this parenting lark wasn't going to be straightforward! All the books and websites recommended different plans or routines, not to mention the well meaning but often misplaced advice from friends and family - it was all so confusing! Through trial and error we eventually discovered a response and respectful approach to raising our little girl and in time, gained confidence to trust our instincts and do what felt right for us a family.
We then adopted our little boy and welcoming him in to the family was a real roller coaster! We learnt so much during the long adoption process, knowledge that proved invaluable with our daughter as well as our son. Most of it centered around empathy, respect and understanding the brain science behind the behaviour. The insight we've developed is amazing and it's why I love the CalmFamily programme - the classes provide all this and more!
I know firsthand how parenting can be a challenge, an information maze, with so much conflicting advice out there. This is why I'm really excited about sharing BabyCalm and ToddlerCalm with you. I can help you navigate through the recommendations, the methods and the advice by sharing the latest research and evidence based information. It will give you the confidence to make your own choices and parent in a way that fits your unique family.
My current scheduled classes:
Please book your place using the form below or if you can't see the class you'd like, please register interest instead.
Classes take place at various locations in and around Bournemouth and Poole.
I'm also happy to travel to most areas in Dorset for 1-to-1 and private group sessions - get together with 3 of your friends and let me know what you'd like :-)
My classes are relaxed, informal and above all supportive (and include biscuits!) I look forward to seeing you on a course or workshop soon xx
"I struggled with people trying to push me to parent in a way I didn't agree with, thanks to Kathleen and the ToddlerCalm framework I'm a lot more confident in the way I want to parent and feel I'm a much better advocate for my little girl." - Hollie
"I particularly enjoyed talking about the way the brain develops and how old children are when they develop empathy and what they are capable of understanding. The studies Kathleen related back to made me feel more confident that I couldn’t “spoil” my toddler! I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Thank you." - Nicky
"We feel a lot better equipped and confident as parents as a result of this Preparing to Parent course and feel Kathleen couldn’t have done more for us during or after the course." - Sophie
"We are really grateful for the support you have given us in this very new (and a bit scary!) journey! We found each session very informative and had so much to discuss between the sessions which has really helped us to develop a clearer idea (between the two of us) of how we would like to bring up our child. Your personal relationship with each of us in the group was lovely too!" - Heather
