Parenting

I offer parenting consultations by phone, Zoom or in person and you can book here.

In supporting parents to establish strong connection and emotional safety within the family, this approach draws on pragmatic, trauma informed, therapeutic parenting tools, which are in line with current neuroscience. Sessions support you to unravel the impact of unresolved issues on parenting and to create a new paradigm for relating that brings ease and fulfillment. This approach is relevant for babies to teenagers and on topics such as setting limits, siblings, aggression, separation issues, toddler tantrums, school struggles, bullying, teen disconnection, sexuality, picky eating, potty training, sleep struggles, whining/clingyness/crying/colic/birth trauma. Create more connection, less stress and diffuse conflict. You will re-frame your children’s behaviour with the Hand in Hand approach and receive guidance on specific tools to use.

What would you do with my warm attention all to yourself for an hour?

You could use it to:
Offload hurt/trauma/grief from a situation that plagues you
Make a decision
Release fear that holds you back from doing something you want
Dissolve negative beliefs about yourself
Remove hurt to improve a relationship
Find a sense of power where you lack confidence
Look at some of the deep seated issues that you face in your family
Dissolve problem areas of rigidity and stress
Work with me over time to address challenges that are making family life unworkable

What folks say:
“Of all the parenting and therapeutic work I’ve done, working with you was a turning point in our family. It is the most powerful thing I’ve come across”

“Roma is such a warm, patient and compassionate human being and she has the most amazing ability to listen in a non-judgemental way. I’m so grateful for everything that she has done to help me develop a coherent life narrative and change my approach to particular family situations – her coaching work has had such a positive impact on me and my family. Thank you so much Roma – you’re wonderful!”

“I’ve done years of therapy, being a therapist myself and I’ve never felt such safety and warmth as you provide. Nothing I’ve done in therapy has been anything like this effective. I’ve been working on this (issue) for years and in a moment with you it’s just released!”

You can book:
An hour at £100 (although no-one turned way for financial reasons)
3 hours at £250
12 hours at £950*

Sleep program (number of sessions dependent on situation) – offload stress about sleep struggles and learn tools to implement that are both effective and respectful to your child. This is a gentle approach that works on sleep by helping children unravel the fears and tensions that prevent easy and deep sleep. A likely side effect is that your child may feel more confident in the world, less prone to aggression and better able to handle separation from you.


*
Intensive support – For those who want to go deeply into this approach, consider receiving consistent support over 3 months, so you can really get to grips with things that need to change. You can book 12 hours to be used as needed. This means you could have a regular weekly slot, but if you are having a rough time you might like to use several of your sessions that week. As part of this package you also get to reach out to me for 5 mins emergency listening whenever you need it. Another payment option is instalments of £85/week.

My Story

Before finding Hand in Hand, family life felt chaotic and challenging. I was battling intense, inexplicable nerve pain in my left hand following Artemis’ birth. It was debilitating and prevented me from connecting deeply with those around me. I sensed I needed to do some work on my childhood and how I had been parented. We were also finding it very difficult with Zephyr, who is an intense, sensitive, aggressive and anxious child and I wanted to be able to really help him and keep his sister safe. I feel like a parenting ninja when I can skilfully diffuse situations that used to be tricky, by using play. The Listening Partnership tool has been life changing for me. I am now so much less reactive, which leaves me naturally affectionate and playful. I want more families to experience the connection, ease and fun that we now have.

I also offer the 6 week Parenting Starter Class. I am so honoured to teach these transformational parenting tools, which serve as not only a way to help children feel more co-operative, but also bring you long lasting connection to your children… and everyone else in your life. New dates for February 2018 coming soon.

“This course has been unbelievable, life changing. I wish everyone would have the chance to do this”
“It’s been such a beautiful, horrifying, gorgeous journey. It’s been mind blowing and overwhelming and such a treat to do this course with you.”
“I’ve noticed that my son is no longer aggressive and I am closer to my children.”
“There’s joy! there’s a little happy person there.”
“I’ve seen the transformation in so many good friends who’ve attended this life changing parenting course. Roma carries beautiful soft yet strong energy for holding space, coming from a place of truth, experience and authenticity, which is why it’s why it is working for others.
