Parent, Coaching Client

“I was lucky enough to attend one of Marie’s parenting workshops run by the local council.  I was struggling a little as a first time Mum juggling all that motherhood entails, a business and a new home.  Marie’s empathy and humility struck a chord with me and I felt an instant level of respect and trust. I had known for some time that I was ready to start some counselling but I dreaded the idea of trying to find the right person.  After meeting Marie, I knew that she was perfect for me.  I admired her intelligence, her openness about her own fragility and her dedication to her work and research.  Marie has provided practical tools and supporting literature that helped me address some personal behaviours and explore conflict in relationships that I wanted to work through.  After every session I always felt renewed vigour to continue working on myself and my relationships. Marie is always 100% present at our sessions, she’s an incredible listener and has an artful ability to reframe and communicate. In a word, Marie has empowered me to continue to evolve and grow, I am eternally grateful for her guidance and help.”

I have found the workshops an amazing experience as a mother and human. The topic covered have made my life and in turn my son’s life better.  We are talking more about feelings and being more aware of the way we are treating each other. Thanks you so much.

Parent, St Peters

Your presentations were excellent and so engaging. I will definitely recommend this course to friend

Parent, St Peters

Parent, Middle Park

Really found it extremely valuable to do as a couple and thought it was unbelievable value– You should charge more!! Thank you

Parent, Middle Park

My husband and I really got a lot out of it and it really makes sense. I often read books touching on this stuff but they so often don’t go into detail about how we can create this environment for ourselves.

Parent, Middle Park

I think you obviously put a lot of effort into this course and are very passionate about it...which has resulted in a fabulous tool to help us all become the parents we want to be and create happier families...I really appreciate it.

Parent, Middle Park

I think these workshops are essential for us parents... bringing science and the real world together so we can be better parents. Thank you Marie and Michelle for your time, knowledge and inclusiveness.

Having arrived thinking all I really needed was a wine and early night, I left feeling energised and positive about the opportunities for our family amidst the busy lives we lead! Let’s hope they all feel the same as I have them spend time thinking about each others strengths and talking about them this weekend.

Thanks, I have taken many ideas from the Course. If I can utilise only one of them, (and I hope to utilise them all!!), it has been a successful course for me.

Parent, Loreto Toorak

This Program has been such a gift. To have access to such high quality printouts and robust material has been incredible and will have a lasting impact on our family.

Parent, Loreto

Loved it – you converted a sceptic about value by Week 2.

Vivienne Gould, Director Anglicare

I just wanted to say thank you so much for such an inspiring presentation on Saturday.  You were engaging and I loved the perspective around hope – it fitted perfectly with our mission. I’m already thinking about how to incorporate a lot of what you said into goals for my new role.
