Helping you enjoy parenting MORE

Want to improve your parenting communication skills?

One way we can enjoy parenting more is by using constructive communication skills. When we use these skills with our children, we encourage their cooperation, so that they feel more connected to us. We become part of the same team – instead of two fighters battling to win.

I’ve noticed that parents may know what they want to do, but then have difficulty putting it into practice. This why I’ve created the Core Communication Skills Workbook.

This simple and practical workbook gives you four skills to focus on. Each skill has two activities: one to practice the theory and another one to apply it your family. Because the best way to learn something is by doing it!

As much as I love flowers, there's something in this poem that calls to me. I love the idea of being a weed, something that gets to be itself without having to worry about pleasing others.It is what I want for my children as well. I want them to be strong and free. I want them to be able to go wherever life takes them, with full confidence and trust in themselves.What about you? What do you want for your kids?#concarinodenise ... See MoreSee Less

Today is the last day of school in Madrid and it is officially SUMMER.My family and I are going to spend the summer in the Philippines and we can't wait. The last time I was home was when my son was four months old. He turns four years old next month! Needless to say, it has been a while since we were there.As I notice our schedule feeling up, I remember what it is that I really want to do this summer:- Relax. We will be staying at my parents' house for most of the time and my husband and I are looking forward to not having to think about the house and all the chores that go along with it! I am ignoring my desire to make all the plans and reminding myself to take things easy. I don't need to know and organize everything ahead of time. I can just go flow with the flow - something that living in Spain has definitely taught me!- Nurture. As I was listening to the We Can Do Hard Things episode with Cole Arthur Riley, they said, "This land is my responsibility to nurture." I was struck with this idea of nurturing the places I go to, of leaving them better than how I found them. I then realized how we also nurture our relationships. After not being in the Philippines for so long, there are many people I am looking forward to seeing - my grandmother, my friends, my yayas, my cousins... Just as how I want to nurture nature, I want to spend my summer nurturing my relationship with them, too.What about you? What are you going to spend your summer doing?#concarinodenise ...

"You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you."As parents, we think we know what's best for our children. In some ways that's true. No one knows our children better than we do - except themselves.What if instead of thinking that our children are here and it is our job to raise them, we instead thought of ourselves as the bow, and our children the arrow.We do not know where our children will go. We only know that they need our stability to go far.#concarinodenise ... See MoreSee Less

Who i am

When my daughter was born and she was placed in my arms, one of the first thoughts that came to me was, “What do I do now?!”

Luckily, I have a clear idea of the type of parent that I want to be. While I still have my doubts (because what parent doesn’t?), I know deep down that what I’m doing is aligned with what I want for myself, for my children and for our relationship.

As a parenting coach, I help you do the same. I guide you into finding the confidence within you to be the parent you want to be.

What people are saying

We conducted our session with Denise as a family and it was very insightful. She was able to open up our eyes to both similarities and differences we had within our unit that we were not aware of. By the end of the session we were able to productively come up with common values we can now implement as a family.

Problem Solving workshop with Denise. It was informative, practical and thought provoking. Denise’s style is great, she’s so open, non judgemental, good at listening and asking questions that really helped me to understand myself better and connect with the content she shared. She is a real expert in her field and I instantly applied what I learned in the workshop and I’ve already seen some positive changes in my son and our communication. Huge thanks Denise!

To my surprise, Denise's "How to talk" workshop had a much bigger impact than I expected. I can honestly say it changed my relationship with my 2 year old toddler immensely. The course is incredibly hands on and gives clear and practical examples. It reinforced the theory I already knew and I finally found a way to actually apply it to my family. Denise's calm and warm way of leading the course gave me the support I needed. I just had my second child and was learning how to deal with both kids.

Denise is so passionate about positive parenting. She is a great group facilitator, creating a comfortable and dynamic environment. She’s good at walking through problem solving steps to find what solutions work best for everyone. A very practical, applicable course.

Our sessions with Denise helped us to come to a mutual understanding of the foundation from which we choose to raise our family. we got clear on our family goals and our family values. Having this clear helps navigate the difficult moments that having two kids under two can bring up. I notice myself daily come back to our family values and this helps me stay grounded and communicate clearly with the kids. I have also found the process improved our relationship as Denise was so good at holding space for us to have conversations we wouldn’t normally have as a couple.

So far I have had at least six 1:1 parenting coaching sessions with Denise and she is a brilliant listener. She has been coaching me to think beyond of my own world and inspire me to look for better way and approach to teach my daughter. After her advice, I am no longer to dig into a rabbit hole to find solutions because I realize that it wasn’t a positive parenting method. I guess I was applying the old traditional way like most of parents and thought that it was right. She also makes me think what value I want to give my daughter in 20 years time.
