“I took Phyllis’ course with my girls being 9 & 6 years old, and although its specific to teenagers, I have found it easy to implement with my kids from now. Phyllis was able to workshop and guide us on our personal communication styles, and it was great hearing other parent’s examples too. The course was very practical and a safe space to share, and I definitely had a couple of ‘aha’ moments!”

Vanessa - June, 2020

“I have gained so much insight and skills from the Tuning into Teens Course. It has given me a greater understanding into how teenagers think and communicate as well as how to parent and communicate more mindfully so as to foster strong relationships where my children can feel heard and free to express and explore their own emotions. My only regret is that I did not have the opportunity to do this course sooner. Phyllis is a caring and gifted presenter who has a genuine concern for those she coaches. I have learnt so much from her.”

“I was pleasantly surprised with the content of the program and how impersonal yet relevant it was. Attendees were not required to contribute unless they chose to do so and it was totally up to individuals to discuss personal issues if they wished to do so. I went into the course thinking my parenting style was going to be addressed personally but this was not the case. The program was very inclusive and equipped me with the necessary tools to build better relationships with not only my teenager but also my husband. I am so pleased I was involved in the program. I learnt a lot, and have implemented a lot of ‘emotional coaching’ techniques and noticed results. ‘Emotional coaching’ really does work and I recommend that everyone gets involved, including schools and community groups.”
