Details of the Workshop
On this occasion I’ve offered this workshop in two longer parts, this was due to feedback from parents who attended last time. They said wanted more time to share, discuss and talk in the group!
No more than 9 parents attend ( no children). They are small and intimate. In my experience ( and feedback) a smaller group enables parents to ask questions, share and feel safe. All my workshops were sold out the last term, payment is in advance and non-refundable. You can, however, transfer the ticket to another party at any time if you are unable to attend. It is important that you can attend both days. There are no creche facilities and it is for parents only.
Time: 9.45 am-12.30pm ( X2)
Cost: £100 per person for nearly six hours of parenting ( via PayPal Ticket below) there is a 20% discount for partners, please contact me to arrange the discount. Handouts included
Where: Muller House BS7 ( Ashley Down)
If you are wondering about investing time and money in your family’s wellbeing. Ponder on this, research published in the Independent reported that parents argue with their children at least 49 minutes a day, the average spat is 8 minutes. That’s a lot of wasted time every day when you could be implementing interventions that promote secure connections, problem-solving and joy. Make 2019 the year of change!
