Tuning Into Teens
The tuning into teens program was developed by Melbourne University and is an evidence based parenting workshop.
My passion for working with teen and family challenges over the years has led to action. My hope is that this course will increase understanding and bring harmony within families. Receive real support to deal with the pain and difficulty of managing your teen’s emotions.
This course aims to support parents by means of psychoeducation on developmental theory, age and stage appropriate markers for teen behaviour, the neuroscience behind difficult teen behaviours such as defiance, dismissiveness, isolation, rejection and criticism of parents.
We explore varying parental responses such as anger, sadness, grief, rejection and frustration. We explore varying parenting styles and work on their own responses to teen behaviour. Helping acrimonious divorced parents, the blended family such as step-parents and step siblings understand how a teen’s behaviour. Helping parents, couples with teens expressing suicidal ideation, self-harm and isolation what this can often linked to and how to respond. This has been producing incredible results with family harmony, reduction in difficult teen presentations and families re-connecting in novel ways.

Tuning Into Kids
Tuning in to Kids® is an emotion-focussed parenting program. It provides parents and carers with skills in emotion coaching, which is about recognising, understanding and managing their own and their children's emotions. When children develop these emotional skills they are better able to negotiate the ups and downs of life. Tuning into kids focuses on the emotional connection between parents / carers and their children, aged 4-10 years.
The evidence-based program has proven success in improving parenting, parent-child relationships, and children's emotional resilience. Most importantly, it is an 'evidence-based' program which means that randomised controlled research trials have shown that it makes a difference to parents and children. To date over 100,000 parents have attended Tuning into Kids® programs in Australia alone.

Self Care Workshop
The Self Care Workshop is designed to inform, empower and protect individuals from stress, overwhelm, compassion fatigue and burnout.
This workshop will:
- Explore what self-care actually means and how we go about doing that.
- Identify the interdependent ways that support working from a place of regulation and sustainability.
- The workshop will assist individuals to incorporate a neurobiological framework to help them notice and track their own nervous system to ensure they are working within a window of presence and health.
- The workshop will support individuals to explore boundaries and ways in which to support and protect themselves from vicarious trauma and burnout.
- Look at Somatic strategies to support “bottom up” and top down regulation processes.
- Conceptual Framework to successfully move through the cycles of activation and into states of agency, satisfaction and integration.
Many passionate, well-intentioned and highly skilled and intelligent individuals slowly and sadly burnout.
Many have lost hope, direction and agency especially in the face of COVID - 19.
This is not a reflection of their capacity or desire - but the result of not understanding how stress affects not just our minds but also our bodies.
SELF CARE WORKSHOP – Runs from 10:00am – 12:00pm – 15 Participants

Cost: $89.00 per person
Reflective Practice is essential to protecting workers from stress, overwhelm, trauma and compassion fatigue. As practitioners we are called to work in the field of caretaking/helping and for many of us this unconscious decision is based on an exquisite skill and capacity to track and care of the other. This usually speaks to a history that necessitated the child to take care of a parent/caretaker – this is the story of “The Drama of the Gifted Child”. As practitioners we require a framework that supports us to recognise how we at times “abandon” our own needs to care for others. It is in this unconscious attachment patterning that practitioners and clients are most at risk.
Explore and identify core motivating themes showing up in your practice. Learn ways to reflect, track and attune to what is happening in relationship to your work. Learn ways to support an embodied selfcare practice and identify ways to nurture and nourish yourself as you work in individual, agency or team environments.
We have a Duty of Care to our clients and ourselves to ensure we are working from a place of health, choice and awareness. Reflective Practice ensures we are aware, skilled and supported to work with projection, transference and counter- transference.
Reflective practice groups are designed to provide a safe space to debrief and attain support in the areas of self-reflection in relation to client work.
Working with Generational Trauma
Trauma is not in the biography of our ancestry but lives on in the here and now in the physiology and behaviour of our children, families and communities. We have an opportunity to support much needed healing by restoring primary and extended connections within cultures and families.
We will explore how relationships and connections have the potential to transform and heal lineages where ancestors have survived the horrors of war, genocide, colonisation, racism, displacement and migration.
- Generational impact of trauma
- Relational Brain
- Attachment, safety and connection
- Physiological trauma presentations in kids
- Awareness is key and connection sets you free
