"The parent-child connection is the most powerful mental health intervention known to humanity" Bessel Van Der Kolk


At the heart of all our training programmes is strengthening the parent-child relationship. Research is clear- when a parent practices holding their child in mind, connecting with their child’s feelings and doing or saying things to help the child feel understood the child will feel more safe and secure. These programmes help parents to strengthen this skill in playful and creative ways.
