Parenting Wisely Workshop

The sessions were informative, structured and gave direction on how to address issues in my life and improve the relationship with my children.

I gained some wonderful insights into Play Therapy and getting more connected with my kids. I am inspired to try a few practical tips I learnt from this workshop. – anaesthetist mother of 3

The workshop presented by Joanna is very informative and certainly assists with every day occurrences and techniques, which were very practical and one can relate to the practical examples given. The suggestions and techniques are valuable tools to guide and assist and give parents an opportunity to really connect with and understand the behaviour projected by the child and indeed an understanding of one’s own values and how we go about parenting. Joanna is very professional and articulate giving much needed insight and help. Thank you so much, I have learnt a few things that could shift my current situation at home in terms of effective parenting with love and not fear-based. –  single parent of a special needs child
