The Essential Tools to Become a Parent and Family Life Coach - 12th October - 23rd November

Challenges faced by parents, children and family units have increased, more so over the last 12 months. As life changes and new transitions take place, so does their emotional needs and requirement for support.

The skills you learn will equip you to support parents or caregivers specifically one to one or as a series of workshops delivered to groups in organisations, both virtually and face to face. To support you, you will be provided with all the materials you need should you want to deliver this coaching programme.

The programme has been tried and tested for over ten years and has been run in large corporate organisations such as Citigroup, Belron plc, Morgan Stanley, Cooper Parry and Boots. We’ve also delivered this to SME’s such as the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust, local authority Housing Associations, NHS, schools and to public groups – always to resounding success.
