as a parent…
… we know there is more, or different, we could be doing to help our children succeed and be happy in life, and to increase our enjoyment of our parenting experience. But it often feels easier to keep doing the same things while hoping for a different result (or maybe that it will just turn out ok?!)
What realistic changes could really transform my parenting experience?
… we are often judged when we choose to do things differently than other people. This relentless judgement from society and other parents can be exhausting and adds to any existing feelings of inadequacy and concern for our children’s outcomes.
Where can I get strength from to transform my parenting experience?
… we also feel attacked from many angles by conflicting information that we are assured “will work”. This well-meaning advice is usually neither fact-based nor tailored to our situation and may even feel “wrong” to us.
How can I know what is “right” for my family?
… we seek reassurance, inspiration and motivation to traverse the parenting journey, knowing what to try next and feeling affirmed in our ability to do this job well.

what others say…
“Talking to Sarah about our daughter’s sleep issue was a relief to say the least. Her knowledge of children’s needs and commitment to nurturing parent-child relationships helped us see the things we are already doing well and gave us the chance to learn some new things.
Thinking about our daughter’s needs (to feel safe and not alone) as a priority, and brainstorming creative ways to meet our own needs, was empowering. Sarah’s empathy, perspectives and insights have already made a positive difference to our family. It’s easy to see how her ideas to help us with our current challenge will be useful as we face different challenges in future.”
– Sarah, mother of a 9 year old
“Great session with Sarah today. What a guru. I love your calm and open nature, your ability to hear me and not just listen. You’ve already taught me heaps over the years that have been invaluable as a parent trying to weave my way through this complex, vulnerable and forever changing journey.
Today was another example of how your gentle guidance makes me feel reassured, empowered and confident in my natural abilities to parent. We cant predict the future but we can try to understand both our children’s and our own wiring and how the two connect. I am honoured and privileged to have my children in my world and am stoked to have someone like you on hand when I feel wobbly.”
– Kirstie, mother of a 8 year old
“It’s not about being perfect. It’s about taking responsibility, realising that there are other ways and giving them a go – especially when what we’ve been doing isn’t working or is creating side effects.” – Sarah Amy Glensor Best
