Create positive change in your family

Parenting struggles? Emotional challenges? Difficult life changes?
Help is at hand.

Modern-day parenting comes with more challenges: less support, greater expectation, and the pressures of a busy everyday life. It can be difficult, sometimes even impossible, to remain calm and confident in your parenting, while struggling not to maintain your own sense of self and navigate difficult life changes.

Jodie’s own experiences and years’ of research have led her to develop a powerful, adaptable parenting philosophy that can work for everyone. Based on the understanding of how our life experiences shape our individual parenting.

She’ll show you how to create a blueprint for parenting, from which you can confidently act on, not react to, the challenges which arise, boost the emotional health and wellbeing in your family, and navigate difficult life changes to thrive rather than simply survive.

From here, you can find a calm confidence to your parenting which will produce a lasting change in your family.

Are you a parent who:

  • Feels like you’re in a constant battle with your children over simple, day to day tasks?
  • Finds your children’s big emotions and challenging behaviour difficult to deal with?
  • Often worries or feels anxious about your family or your life?
  • Is often negative about your parenting and yourself?
  • Often feels exhausted, irritable, frustrated or overwhelmed by family life?
  • Is going through difficult life circumstances like family changes, relationship difficulties or other challenging times?

Jodie can help you to:

  • Learn parenting skills and behavioural and emotional coaching skills to overcome the big dramas and challenging behaviour in your family
  • Boost your own and your family’s emotional health and wellbeing
  • Strengthen your relationship with your children and within your family
  • Navigate difficult life events and circumstances so you and your family thrive rather than simply survive
  • Become a calm and connected parent and raise empowered and heart-centred children

Overcome your parenting struggles, emotional challenges, and difficult life changes.
And become a calm and connected parent, raising empowered and heart-centred children.

“A parenting philosophy that’s a perfect fit”

“Jodie challenged me to question how I wanted to raise my kids, encouraging me to look past simply repeating my own experience of childhood. Today I aim towards a parenting philosophy that’s a perfect fit for my husband and I. It’s also the sweet spot where our kids are happiest. It works, because, essentially, I created it.”
