Supporting parents to feel confident and competent through times of change

change happens. Sometimes you can feel pretty good about parenting and then something happens with your child - they jump to the next developmental stage, they start having trouble at school and suddenly you start to feel less sure about how to best support them. Or changes can happen in your life - divorce, separation, moving house, change in financial status - and suddenly parenting that came naturally doesn’t seem to work any more. It can leave you feeling powerless, confused and worried.


Hi I’m Victoria - an expert in child and adolescent mental health and a parent coach.

I believe that parenting is a skill that keeps developing and when changes happen in your life you may need some support to help you develop the particular set of parenting skills that you need.

Understanding the power that we have over our child’s wellbeing and development isn’t something that should be locked away in books and academic papers. I believe that every parent can get in touch with their own Parent Powers to parent well through times of difficulty and change. All I want to do is support you in getting it right for your family.
