“My most important job is being a mum.  And if you ask my children, Josh and Holly, they would say I have a great deal to learn!  They are right. I set up the Parent Coaching Academy because I am passionate about supporting all parents and carers in the most important job they will do in their lives.  As a parent you will always be a pioneer and every day is an opportunity to make a difference to children, to their view of the world and the way they regard themselves.

We can empower them.  We can put them in the driving seat of their own lives, looking forward to the adventures, rising to challenges and growing stronger through them.

We can raise our own generation of superheroes. Not the superhero who wears a mask and a cape.  Our children are real superheroes.  We can nurture in our little ones the superpowers that will make a difference in our world – compassion, responsibility, empathy, honesty, integrity and love.

The world we leave to our children depends on the children we leave in the world. 

Have fun and enjoy the adventure!”
