Description

Come along for a day of Mindfulness and Positive Psychology. This 'Peaceful Parents' workshop is a day to not only build knowledge and skills but a day of self care for parents. Parents learn and practice a range of Mindfulness and Positive Psychology techniques and practices that are powerful for parents and also to pass on to their children.

This day is hands on, engaging, supportive and powerful.

Parents learn:

  • Resilience building exercises
  • Positive psychology exercises
  • Mindful listening & responding strategies
  • Techniques to help their child lessen worrying
  • How to teach their child effective coping strategies
  • How to build healthy thinking habits in their child
  • To respond to their child's ups and downs that build resilience
  • Preventative strategies to help prevent stress build up in the home
  • How to help children to understand & recognise their own feelings
  • About being in the 'flow' and enjoying more of the present moment
  • Simple and effective Mindfulness exercises they can use for life to keep their own stress levels low

Recent feedback from 'Peaceful Parents' participants:

I found attending the workshops provided an invaluable mental toolkit to survive all these things. Although I’m certainly still a work in progress, I love what I’m working towards and feel like true balance is within my grasp. Grounding, concise and humble also come to mind on reflection of your sessions … you are an amazing lady and I feel so privileged to have been ‘coached’ by you.

Firstly, thanks for including me in the Peaceful Parents Program. I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt like I was doing something awesome towards making me a better person and parent! As I have said before, I am still a work in progress when it comes to regular meditation but the program has made me more aware of my thoughts and conversations, both with my children and just in day to day contact with others. I thoroughly enjoyed each aspect of the program but active listening is something that is a bit of a game changer! I genuinely feel like I am listening a lot more now rather than just hearing, if that makes sense! And even when I can't help myself and jump in with advice, I am silently telling myself to talk less and listen more.


I want to say THANK YOU!!! As I believe that I have been very lucky to have had the chance to participate in the peaceful parents program this year. I really found your sessions so enriching and enlightening, each and every one of them have been an opportunity for reflecting, gaining self-awareness, connecting with our emotions and with others through sharing thoughts experiences in a very safe and warm environment.

The Program has definitely been an invaluable opportunity for growth. I feel I carry my “tool kit” with me and I also feel much better prepared to deal with my own and others’ problems in a more reflective and effective way. Thanks Georgie, for having shown such a genuine interest in helping us bring out the best in ourselves. I believe there is still a lot of room for improvement, but I feel like while I don’t know the way, at least I now know which way to go.
