Frequently asked questions

What happens during the sessions?

There are three parts in each session:

  • Checking in about your week, your observations, reflections, wins and challenges.

  • Studying the course material: each session covers an essential piece of information about developing secure relationships. The content is delivered in a highly interactive and relatable way through videos of parents and their children, graphics and plenty of time for reflection and discussions that will help you to weave your insights into your day-to-day parenting.

  • Reflecting on the session offers the opportunity to decide what you would like to take away from the session and explore further during the coming week.

Do I need to do anything between sessions?

The most important thing is to keep your insights from the previous session in your awareness as you go about your day-to-day parenting. It’s not about doing more; it’s about doing differently. 

What support is available between the sessions?

You will have a course workbook that highlights the key points covered in each session and helps you to stay focused on the current step. You’ll have the key information at your fingertips to review whenever you need it. If you have any questions - email me or send me voice message and I will respond within one working day.
