Tuning into Teens
We are so happy to receive the latest RR Tuning into Teens program testimonials for June 2021. They directly reflect our aim, which is to support parents to create a strengthened bond with their teens.
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, connecting, supportive environment for parents to learn about the program, explore the approach and walk away with the tools to create the connection with their teens that they hoped for.
We ensure this as each member of our team of facilitators hold a master of family counselling and are currently working in the field of family counselling and social work. They are truly dedicated to helping families and kids stay in connection as they grow.
Phyllis and Anna – 01 June, 2021
“I have recommended the program to many people, I feel everyone can get something from it.”
“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.” Read more “Elly – 01-06-2021”
“I was able to de-escalate arguments with siblings, and address feelings of anger and sadness. I was more aware of my parenting style and I now spend more time discussing situations with my teens now.”
“Thank you, the program was presented in such a friendly, warm, safe and educating environment. Everyone managed to keep engaged, it was awesome.”
“I recommend the course as everyone can get some benefit from it.”
“My teens interaction with me is much better and our bond is much stronger. I feel like we are starting to slowly understand each other.”
“The more I tried the interventions, the better I got at it.”
“Learnt about how teens process problems and events. How to deal with teen emotions and behavior and how to recognize this.”

“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!” Read more “Vanessa”
“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.” Read more “Renee”
“Dear Phyllis, there are no words to thank you. I have learnt so much, not only about myself but why behaviours occur. It has been a teary (on occasion) but very positive experience. I really love your delivery and acceptance of all of us. Thank you so very much.“
“The weekly exercises were terrific to do with my teens each week. It really helped us create a connection.”
