Tuning into your Toddler

Group Workshops

Do you find yourself thinking?

This too shall pass… I will just wait the meltdowns a little longer…

“I want to set up a conscious and gentle parenting care plan so that we can lay out the much-needed foundations for our toddler.”

“I am feeling SO triggered lately and I really don’t know why?”

Raising your toddler in a connected and conscious way can seem like an uphill climb, but raising your child with a more conscious and curious way is how you can teach them about respectful communication, emotion regulation and empathy for self and others.

Are you amidst the chaos of toddler-hood and thinking to yourself regularly,

“this too shall pass…. But when!!”

Would you love gentle parenting tools to help you feel self-empowered and supported throughout this season?

Becoming a parent is the only job in the world where you will not receive a manual or any training!

Yes, there’s the internet, and hey you’ve probably found me here!

But in reality, there is SO much noise out there and to be honest, do you even know if what you are trolling through is research and evidence-based by someone qualified to move you through your parenting journey gently and with support?

There is no need to feel the avalanche of overwhelm anymore, within this uniquely developed workshop, I will provide you with the perfect mix of connected and conscious parenting tools, education with an evidence-based approach as well as a safe space to come to with tried and true practices from my own personal experience as a mama to three daughters, to bring about more awareness and healing within your parenting journey.

We all want our children to thrive and we ourselves want to be happy and come back to that place of joy that we’ve felt many times within our parenting journey, let’s get real here though, there are times that we feel scared, lonely and at the depths of despair, ‘how on Earth can I possibly do this for one more day!’

  • You may have had thoughts such as; “I literally can’t keep going like this, I would love some simple parenting tools and guidance into my sons’ emotional needs and development so I can better support him through this?”

 

  • You might be thinking something along the lines of, “My relationship is suffering, and I’m exhausted, I need more support but I don’t know how to even begin this discussion that needs to happen with my partner so that we can get on the same page…”

Life with children isn’t always rainbows, lollipops and upright sandcastles!

I want you to know though, you are not alone on this journey.

What parents need is holistic and supportive education shared in a non-judgmental way.  Parents with toddlers need to feel confident in their parenting style and know that the concsious and connected parenting tools that they are given are research and evidence-based, in the ‘Tuning into your Toddler’ workshop you will be provided with ALL of this, as well as a supportive, safe space for you to come and learn uniquely developed tools for you and your family as you journey into a gentle and conscious parenting lifestyle with a like-minded community!

Meet Nikki

I am a mama to three beautiful daughters, I have been a Registered Nurse for the past 12 years with a brief 4-year break to be a full-time mama, I am also a Maternal Child and Family Nurse and have been working with families for the past 5 years.

Having our first daughter more than 11 years ago now and experiencing postnatal depression and depletion ignited a deep passion in me to support families with education on attachment within the postpartum period, I developed a fierce determination to pass on research-based evidence within the fourth trimester and the foundation years of early childhood, this knowledge has been based also upon my own unique experience with our three daughters and passed onto countless beautiful families within the past 5 years!

In saying all of that, I know first-hand the many challenges and also joy that you can, and will feel in any fleeting moment and I can’t wait to share this beautiful journey with you!

What do others have to say?

Siobhan Foster

“Calming and motivating! I feel calmer in not putting so much pressure on myself to be the ‘perfect parent,’ but to be more present and in tune with my toddler. A conversation regarding the type of parent I want to be (or what my children see me as) has really stuck with me. When I find myself in a stressful situation now with my toddler, I ask myself “what type of parent do I want to be?” before I react to the situation. Thank you.”

Brooke van der vyer

“I feel like I have a number of strategies and tools that I can implement at home. It was also so nice to meet and speak to other parents that may be having the same or similar challenges, knowing I am not alone! I found these workshops extremely valuable for me and my family. It was a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where you felt comfortable to share your challenges and experiences. It is so great knowing I can make small changes to create a calm and balanced home”

Jenna Logan

I feel that I really needed to be a part of a community talking about parenting. It’s a great, relaxed and safe environment to share. Nikki is a breath of fresh air with a wealth of knowledge and a big heart!

Tiana Pritchard-Richards

“We loved coming to the workshop and learning all of the different components of parenting! I am so happy to walk away feeling like a more mindful and calm parent. These workshops have really given us the tools to parent gently and on the same page as a couple.

The workshop has allowed me to connect with like-minded people. So many of the topics that were covered resonated with me and the way that I want to parent. I think it is so important to continually educate ourselves especially with parenting and this workshop has really provided that.”

Gemma Ralph

I feel calmer and more informed. I realise I am not the only one thinking, feeling and going through this in motherhood/parenthood!  A welcoming and informative workshop. A truly beautiful group of people to share experiences and thoughts with.

Isaac Daly

“I feel like I understand my son’s behaviour’s and emotions better, and I now go into a situation with a different perspective.

I loved connecting with different parent’s and finding out the things that I am going through, that I am not alone.”
