Our community is impacting the future... and so could you
Together, we educate and support anyone who can make a real change to how children are raised, treated, viewed, and valued in society. That includes educating and supporting families and professionals, and you can make a massive difference.
Become a specialist family consultant
If you want to work with parents, educating and supporting them to have calmer lives with their children then listen up. By training with us, you can become a Certified Parenting Consultant, running your own business, and consulting with parents as you choose to. You will get to choose to train in one or more specialist areas, depending on what you love.
Run our parenting programmes
Whichever specialism you choose, you get the opportunity to also run the corresponding parenting education programmes alongside your consultancy. Our well-known and respected education programmes, such as BabyCalm and ToddlerCalm each offer a range of structured session types that take parents easily on a journey of learning and choice. They are fully branded with all the educational materials you will need available to you.
They are simple and fun to deliver, and a great foundation for a new business, or addition to an existing business.
Join a community
When you come to train with, you join a community, a family, and with that comes collaboration, support, new friendships and an ongoing relationship. Instead of simply learning some new things, you join a cause, and you find people passionate about the same things as you are, who you can lean on, and get excited with.
Is this for me?
This opportunity is for you if you:
- Are a parent, have cared for children, or work in parent support.
- Understand and believe in our values and in calmer relationships deeply (more on this in our About us section).
- Have the vision to achieve your own version of success
- Genuinely want to support families inclusively and without judgment.
- Have an ethical and community oriented attitude.
- Strive to create a world with a calmer, more empathic, equal and empowering approach to relationships.
This opportunity is NOT for you if you:
- Think there is one right way to be a fab parent
- Think you will become “the expert” in parenting
- Expect to be successful without doing the work
- Want to work alone, without supporting, or being supported by other people
- Think you have it all worked out and have nothing left to learn
- Are not truly excited by the idea of changing society.
The most comprehensive training and support around
We think it is important that when you support others, you know what you are doing. It is important, not just because that is what people deserve from our offering, but because it really helps you to go out there confident, and ready to change the world.
