Compassionate Parenting

I was immersed in empathy at theĀ  Non-Violent Communication family heart camp near Washington, DC this June. Fifty children and fifty adults played, talked, ate, drummed and enjoyed nature, while practicing compassionate communication. The theme was finding compassion while in conflict with our children and co-parents. We enjoyed learning about the “no fault zone”, an inalienable right to everyone’s feelings and needs, no matter their age. I came away refreshed having experienced the treasures of giving and receiving empathy from other adults. My son loved the non-stop play and playmates. We have found easier ways to resolve conflicts of needs since we’ve been home and I”m excited to present these new learnings at a parenting group I will be offering on Waiheke Island in September.

New: Online Sessions

Some of my clients have chosen to occasionally use online meeting methods for our sessions. They choose this if they have young children and it's hard to leave home, if their work schedule doesn't allow them time during the day for an appointment, or if they know they'd prefer to be in the comfort of their home or designated, private space to process their healing.

To learn more if this would be ideal for you, I encourage you to contact me.
