OUR MISSION

To help families to live calm, confident and content lives 

OUR VISION

To provide science backed, high-quality presentations, workshops and webinars to parents and caregivers enabling them to acquire the knowledge, skills and strategies they need to raise happy children in our complex world.

OUR WHY

Over the last decade there has been a huge increase in the number of parents and children with mental health challenges and the recent pandemic has exacerbated this. Mental health and wellbeing are complex areas and there is not a ‘one size fits all’ solution to the challenges that individuals face. There is an increasing amount of research that indicates there is a mismatch between our environment and our biology, however there is also convincing evidence that families and young people can develop the tools to flourish.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Thousands of hours of training plus our commitment to using evidence-based research underpins our approach. We believe that calmness sets the foundation for wellbeing. When we feel calm, we can be compassionate with ourselves and others. It is from this place that we can connect with others, communicate effectively, build positive relationships and feel confident and capable. Although we do deliver virtually, we know from the science and lived experience that wellbeing and effective learning happens best in-person, for this reason we highly recommend when possible we deliver training face to face
