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!

Go through your day and, from a place of 𝒄𝒖𝒓𝒊𝒐𝒔𝒊𝒕𝒚, ask yourself, "Did I respond to my child from love or react to them from fear?"How can you know the difference?By how you were feeling and what you were thinking at the time.Imagine your child is refusing to walk.Reacting from 𝐟𝐞𝐚𝐫 may look like you forcing them along because you fear that if they don't start walking now, they'll never ever walk and it always be like this forever.Responding from 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚 may look like you going down to their level and understanding what's going on with them. Are they tired? Are they bored? How can you help each other in both getting what you want? You may believe that children do their best when they can, and if your child isn't walking now, it's because something is keeping them from doing so.Think of something you're currently struggling with. What would responding from love look like? I'd love to read it below! ... See MoreSee Less

Do you feel stuck?You know what the problem is and you know exactly how to solve it, you just can't seem to actually do it.I've been there.Sometimes we're holding on to the problem so strongly, that it has become a part of who we are."I'm the mom who doesn't have her act together.""I'm the parent whose kids are always fighting.""I'm the dad whose kids never want to be around me."When the problem has become a part of our identity, it can feel like no matter what we do, we always end up in the same place.I can help you.As a parent coach, I can guide you in embracing who you are and where you are right now so that you are able to let go of the problem that's holding you back. You can stop judging who you are and what's happening in your life. You can start to accept the life you lead and all the people in it, including yourself.And from this place of love and acceptance, grow into the parent you want to be and the parent your child needs you to be.Interested in learning more?

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.

Packages

Have you read the different parenting books yet still need help actually applying the theory? Do you want an environment to connect and share with other parents? Do you wish to improve your relationship with your child?

Then this is for you!

This hands-on course provides you with different tools to improve your communication with children. Participants who have attended the course have more confidence and calm within themselves, a more positive relationship with their children and a more peaceful home.

Are you confident in who you are as a parent and just have a few things you would like to improve on? Sometimes we’re so deep in the day tao day that we need the space to step back, take a deep breath, reflect and re-center. It can be hard to see things clearly when we’re too close to our reality.

Just as how cars have regular tune-ups to keep everything running smoothly, parents can also benefit from reassurance and support to keep doing the wonderful, fulfilling and difficult job we’re doing. In this package, we take a deep dive into your parenting approach. Why do you do what you do? What values do you wish to pass on?

When you know what your family values and goals are, it becomes easier to lead your family, make decisions and respond consciously. During the sessions, we also look at your current biggest challenge and how you can apply your family values to help you surpass it.

Sometimes, we need more support and accountability to become the parents we want to be. Knowing our family values and long-term goals might not be enough to change our automatic responses.

Maybe you start by trying to understand your child’s side and keeping calm, but against your better judgement, you later find yourself shouting and feeling frustrated and angry. That doesn’t make you a bad parent. It’s okay to feel frustrated and angry, that’s all part of the human experience.

Over twelve sessions, we’ll look at how to reduce these moments of anger and frustration, as well as what you can do when they happen. We will take your family values and long-term goals and see how to apply them to your everyday interactions. I will also teach you the communication skills you need to have the relationship you want. Through mindset shifts and powerful questions, you will become aware of what’s keeping you from being the parent you want to be and gain the confidence and ability you need to make it happen.
