No matter what language they speak, no matter what age their child, no matter what style of parenting they have,  EVERY parent I have ever spoken to worries about whether they are getting it right. You too probably worry whether what you are doing is right for your child.

Almost every parent I meet has some sense of guilt or shame for some of the  things they have done  as a parent.

Joyful Parents events are unique in that I don’t offer advice.  I don’t believe in a “right” way.  I love to point you back to your own sweet nature, your own innate natural connection to yourself and to reconnect you to your child so that you can rest in the deep peace and joy of being a parent.

I am so very grateful for the opportunity to meet parents through the events I run, the invitations I have to visit other countries and speak with groups of parents from all over the world.

I have run or will be running  events in Scotland, Switzerland, The Bahamas, Kuwait, Ireland, London, Poland and Spain.  If you wish to invite me to present to parents in your local area please don’t hesitate to ask.
