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!

When we're with our kids, we can be so focused on keeping them alive and healthy that we don't realize how we feel when we're with them.When I've asked my clients to name their top three feelings when with their children, they're normally surprised by their answers.They feel frustrated, rushed, annoyed..But they also feel love.The top three feelings we have when with our children show us the quality of our time together.Are you spending your time hurrying them along? Making sure they get to school on time, get home at a reasonable time, and go to bed as early as possible...Or maybe you are actually following their lead and allowing them to take all the time they need - but you feel impatient and resentful.Our feelings are messages we receive from our body. They clue us in on what's working for us and what needs to be worked on.What are your top three feelings when with your children? What are these feelings telling you?If these feelings are telling you that something needs to change, then listen to that and get the support you need.

When it comes to making our lives easier, having a routine is crucial.Routines give our kids predictability and help them to feel safe. Routines also help to remove the power struggles we encounter! When we decide on a routine with our children, it becomes much easier to implement it. It's not you telling them what to do, it's them doing what they have decided to do.But sometimes it feels like we aren't in charge of our making our routines!I worked with my client on exactly this. Her routine was always changing because of their family situation. She thought she and her children would always be in a state of flux, and there was nothing she could do about it.Through our work together, I helped her see what was in her control. She created anchors in her day and found how others could adjust to her and her children's routine instead of the other way around. Even after going through major changes in their circumstances, my client maintained a sense of stability and security for her children.What routines do you currently have in place? Are they working for you or against you?If you'd like guidance and accountability on establishing a routine that works for you, then send me a message. Let's schedule a free consult where you will get clear on what's working on your routine, what isn't and what you can do about it.I can't wait to hear from you! ... 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.
