Not only is Deborah an excellent facilitator but she is genuinely compassionate and supportive toward the roller coaster of emotions that separating parents experience and can genuinely empathise as she has ridden that roller coaster herself, so it’s great to feel acknowledged, understood and guided by Deborah as she takes you through the course.
Deborah taught me various strategies and concepts to use to assist my children with managing their emotions as well as my own and I can say the results speak for themselves. When the children were with me over the school holiday break using the strategies that Deborah had taught, the understanding and emotional connection that my children and I experienced was nothing short of amazing. My children opened up to me like never before. Having them share and feel safe enough to vocalise the way they felt was absolutely heart warming.
I can’t recommend Deborah and the Tuning into Kids course highly enough for any parent who wants to learn to parent better and establish a deeper connection with their children.
I found the two day course super informative on many different levels. Deborah gives you a meticulous insight into the brain senses through to the emotions of why things spiral out of hand. The exercises are fun and give you a one on one hypothetical scenario on how you would conduct yourself with your child/children. The thing that blew me away most was how cheap it actually is for a 12 hour session that goes on for two days.
I’m an advocate and highly recommend any man/woman in need of understanding how the emotional component works. This is where Deborah is well educated and experienced and she makes sense of how the emotional component works. It’s also beneficial for a parent to cognitively want to make a change in their life… I can introspectively and emotionally see the benefits already. Thank you Deborah and all the very best…!
Since beginning the Tuning in to Kids Program I’ve already noticed a difference in both myself and my kids. Being more aware of both their emotions and the way I respond, has meant we’ve had fewer “melt downs”, and more meaningful conversations about the way we relate to each other and people outside our family. I’m looking forward to continuing to practice some of the techniques I’ve learned. I really recommend participating if you have the opportunity.
I have found this course to be very beneficial to the relationship with my child. I now think before I discipline my child and I believe we have become closer as a result. My child has a better understanding of his emotions and this will only improve the more I use the coaching techniques. The course has been very interesting and informative and I highly recommend it to all parents.
Having the opportunity to undertake the Tuning into Kids program is one I am so grateful for. The course has been presented in a way that is enjoyable, informative and interesting. It has made me more aware of how I parent our children and also encouraged me to be a little more patient when dealing with certain situations. We have also learnt some great tips to achieve a better outcome when parenting, as well as realising the importance of self care, which as a Mum you often neglect.
Each week I gained greater confidence in using emotion coaching with my children. It was really rewarding to be able to put these newly acquired skills into practice and see the positive effect it had on my children’s behaviour.
If you have the opportunity to undertake this course, I would thoroughly recommend it!
