Parenting Knowhow2 Workshops (12hrs)


Accessible, affordable and available for all parents/carers of verbal children of any age.  Prevent problems from happening in the first place – repair relationships if they need it.   Get the KnowHow to transform behaviour and build stronger relationships for a happier family.

If you would prefer to work with a group of friends, (I need a minimum number of 5 people)  please let me know what dates/times work best for you.  There is an option to run these workshops as 2 full days (10am-4pm).  Please ask!

If you’d prefer to work 1:1 (or 1:2 with your partner), please book a 1:1/1:2 Parent Knowhow Coaching.


SESSION 1 – BE YOU: Explore different styles of parenting and find your ‘style’; bust some Parenting Myths; recognise the difference between Needs and Values (yours and your family);  increase your Emotional Self Awareness and Self Confidence; and find 5 values you want to bring into your parenting.

SESSION 2 – HAVE A RESOURCEFUL, HEALTHY MINDSET: Understand how your brain works and why an integrated brain is important for you and your child; move from being reactive to proactive (how to keep your cool); learn how to regulate so you can think clearly and help your child to regulate (eg, managing trantrums/meltdowns); and cultivate resilient parenting and a growth mind-set.

SESSION 3 – LISTEN WELL: Understand Person Centred  Relationship Theory so that you can apply it in your family; recognise and learn how to offer the ‘as if’ quality of empathy; understand what might block your empathy and acceptance of your child, so you can avoid the pitfalls of dysfunctional relating; and understand how to use Active Listening Skills and Mediation Skills so that your children can move from emotional distress to problem solving.

SESSION 4 – BE HEARD – USE ‘CLEAN’ LANGUAGE: Less arguments and more communication; understand an appropriate use of power and learn how to influence your child so that they become considerate of themselves AND others; develop a discipline philosophy so that you can address unacceptable behaviour; learn how to give healthy praise; and avoid power struggles so that your family has boundaries everyone respects

SESSION 5 – RESOLVE CONFLICTS:  When your ‘clean’ messages aren’t heard it may be because there is a conflict of needs between people in your family.  Resolve these conflicts using a creative, collaborative and cooperative conflict resolution method where everyone participates (takes responsibility for their part of the resolution) and where everyone wins.

SESSION 6 – INFLUENCE GOOD CHOICES: Move from being concerned to influencing your child’s values; live the values you want to see in your child; allow your child to be different to you (so you can change with your child); and understand what do do when you and your child have values clashes.


2 hours of Know How

This is a person centred approach to parenting, where you focus on your relationship.  Person centred relationships are evidenced as being the main drive behind psychologically healthy personality change.  Being person centred means that empathy (a desire to understand from the other person’s perspective), unconditional positive regard (accepting the person, with ‘no strings attached’) and congruence (you’re transparently real) is at the heart of all your communication.   If you provide person centred parenting in your home, everyone’s behaviour will transform and relationships will become mutually respectful and cooperative.
The parenting approach is Relational (based on Person Centred Theory) and ensures the needs of everyone are met (Parent and Child). It is neither permissive nor authoritarian. It is authoritative; and gives parents the skills to discipline their children, so that children and young people can be themselves AND be considerate of others. Establish this parenting approach early on, to avoid problems from happening in the first place; or bring this approach in to repair relationships that have been damaged in the past.
These workshops are for parents/carers, for anyone working in a helping or supporting role for famlies; and they can also count towards your CPD.
