Positive discipline

The Jane Nelsen's positive discipline offers a pragmatic and flexible toolbox according to one's preferences. It makes it possible to identify the needs hidden behind the behaviour of the child while offering him a framework for empowering himself/herself. A learning method that ensures self-discipline and confidence, with kindness and consistency.

Family communication

Knowing how to express yourself and listen to your interlocutor are key elements in building quality relationships. When the family communicates in a non-violent and inclusive manner, the child develops emotional intelligence that promotes confidence and self-esteem. The dynamics and relationships within the family have an immense impact on a child's development. By taking inspiration from the principles of systemic therapy, we can highlight collective or individual behaviors that should be modified so that the family system is transformed.

Active listening

According to the work of psychologist Carl Rogers, who developed the method of active listening, emotional openness is key to enjoying healthy and authentic relationships, whoever you are talking to. . This technique facilitates speech not only in children, but also in adults because it builds confidence. Empathy and the absence of judgment brings a feeling of value and reassurance that leads to a deeper connection between parent and child.

Founder, Coach & Educator

After many years working in the arts, I decided to follow my calling as specialist in child-parent well-being. This lead me to take a post-graduate diploma in Psychology and Neuroscience of Mental Health at King's College London which I obtained with Distinction. With this I obtained a solid foundation in neuro-developmental disorders, developmental psychology, psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. I am currently am in the process of obtaining ICF certification in professional coaching.

I am also the the mother of 6-year-old twins (girl and boy) and am relay parent for two adolescents living in social care. This experience has been both challenging and exceptionally rewarding.

With Parent Academy Coaching, if I can help one child find their smile again or one parent reconnect with their child, then I will know it has all been worth it.
