I LOOK FORWARD TO CONNECTING WITH YOU

Karen

Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others.

All consultations are strictly confidential.  Sessions are conducted via online video conference and include a follow-up email. 

Consultations can cover a range of topics, such as particular challenges you are facing with your child or it may be you need support with your own journey as a parent, often it is a combination of both.  My course page gives a good outline of the diversity of topics here

Consultations are £80 per hour.  Building connection is priceless.

what are the benefits of coaching?

Whilst articles and short webinars……..caprovide good information they do not help you with integration.  For that, you need to look at what gets in the way practically and what are the resistances emotionally to applying the tools.

Whilst articles and short webinars…….. may offer positive communication insights they do not integrate the physical, emotional and mental self-care needed to give you the presence and energy to apply the communication.

Whilst articles and short webinars……offer insights into triggers they do not offer the 1-1 dialogue that supports the feeling, understanding and eventual healing of those old wounds. A healing journey, that I feel, is the hidden gift of parenting.

Whilst articles and short webinars are free. I ask you this, if you were investing in a new 18-year career would you just read snippets or would you invest and get on a focused training course?

You will be encouraged to dig deep, this is an opportunity to heal those uncomfortable, often buried, feelings that need kindness and understanding, an opportunity for growth and transformation.

Whilst there is no external employer and no income the benefits are higher – your enjoyment of these short precious years, your opportunity for growth and healing, higher emotional intelligence of your children (and future generations) and your deeper connection with them.

 

You will be encouraged to dig deep, this is an opportunity to heal those uncomfortable, often buried, feelings that need kindness and understanding, an opportunity for growth and transformation.  For course with group calls – You will be strongly held by our small intimate group, including personal support from myself.

HOW DOES VIDEO CONFERENCING WORK?

(For group calls) We use a technology, called Zoom, that allows us all to see each other on the screen so we can form an intimate and supportive group.  You don’t need to do anything technical, I promise, you would just click on an internet link that I send you and I will be at the other end to guide you through the rest.  Let me know if you have any concerns on this and we can easily do a quick zoom session to put your mind at rest.

how did you price the consultation?

Ask yourself this – what is of true value to you on this precious journey of motherhood?  What is your heart longing for?

We are quick as a culture to invest thousands in a new career and yet are often reluctant to invest in our 18+ year parenting journey – why is this?  What price can you put on connection?

My heart and soul go into this work along with many hours of behind the scenes activity that need to be balanced in the price of the courses and consultations.

This includes

  • Years of research, reading, regular parenting conferences to understand the latest research, courses such as Hand in Hand and NVC (non-violent communication).
  • Learning the tech, maintaining and updating – Website (building, hosting), email accounts, mailing lists (including GDPR, data protection policies), video conferencing, business banking, business Paypal, business accounts and tax returns.
  • Marketing – including festival applications and liaison, preparation for talks, online articles, free webinars, free downloads, social media, graphics, flyer design, printing and distributing.  Client liaison. 
do you have a payment plan?

I would be happy to set you up with a payment plan – just email me (click here) stating how many weeks you would like to pay over and I will set that up for you via Paypal, there will be a small fee to cover paypal commission charges and admin. 

Minimum session payments will need to be completed before starting the consultations.

I feel vulnerable sharing my problems

I understand, let me offer an insight from Brene Brown: “Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” 

All consultations are strictly confidential.

I am here to support, to understand and to empower you. Feel free to read about the experience of other mothers..  (Read more here).

I was so deeply touched by Karen’s heartfelt empathy and presence….

I felt acknowledged, heard and safe to share….

I enjoyed Karen’s calm and sensitive way of talking…..

…..so empowering me at a time I felt weak. 

her passion and kindness can provide nourishment for many a growing mother….

what commitment will i need to make?

We work out a mutually convenient time.  I am flexible on hours and used to working late once your children are asleep.

Being a parent I understand that your baby may need feeding during the session or that potentially your child may not sleep in time for the call, don’t worry, we can work around this.

I want to be upfront about the commitment you will need to make this worth your while.  Simply put, the more you put in – the more you get out. 

It very much depends on what areas you are wanting to change and over what timescale. 

For example for the full course we work up to: 

  • 1 hour per week for a 1-1 support call with another parent.
  • 30 minutes per day for connecting practices with your child.
  • 30 minute per day for connecting practices with yourself.

We ease this in gently, working on navigating practical and emotional resistances and communication with your family to make this workable.

I am unsure, what are my options?

You can book a free, no-obligation 1-1 chat to see how I can best support you, to ask questions or to raise concerns by signing up below.

You can follow updates and posts on social media (by clicking on the icon in the footer below) or via my mailing list by clicking here.
