Our family coaching sessions cover a wide range of topics, including bonding with your child, introduction to positive forms of discipline, and tips on how to communicate effectively with daycares, schoolboards and other institutions. Our certified family coach, Grace Campbell, takes a personal approach that invites participants to share their own experiences, and speak honestly about the many challenges that are a daily part of motherhood!
Weekly themes prompt participants to explore different techniques and subject matter, using a combination of journaling and multi-media experimentation. Online sessions are hosted weekly, and provide the opportunity for participants to share inspiration and unwind at the end of the day.
