About Transform Parenting
If I was to go and ask 100 people to tell me what comes to mind when they hear the word ‘childbirth’ – what would they say? Pain. When you think about this, you realise the inherent problem we have as a culture when it comes to childbirth. Unfortunately, we focus on the pain. We make childbirth about the pain, and how to avoid as much pain as we can.
We need to create a different narrative, and a different reality for all women when they go to give birth. Childbirth is about having and welcoming a new baby.
We need women and their partners to understand that childbirth can be a very different experience. How? By choosing and adopting a particular mindset when having a baby.
You see, science tells us this;
- The body and the mind are connected.
- What you think, causes the body to create biochemistry which results in that feeling. This feeling communicates to your body how to respond to the environment, both real and imagined. Therefore, what you think about childbirth, will influence how your body responds to the birthing process.
- If you’re scared of childbirth, your body will create a stress response. This makes childbirth harder and more painful.
- If you feel calm and confident and relaxed about birth, free of fear, your body will respond to labour in a very different way. I call this the path of least resistance.
- What we fear, we fuel. What we resist, persists.
For New Parents
The focus is on you, the parent, more so than the baby. Our courses are delivered in a safe learning environment, with other mums or dads going through the same experiences.
For Parents of Toddlers & Preschoolers
Young children can be tricky and require understanding and patience. Very few of us have had experiences with young children before we have our own. During this two hour Transform Parenting workshop, you will learn to understand:
- what children need,
- how they develop, and
- what you can do to manage and enjoy your young child.
Tuning into kids:
For those wanting to develop their skills further as a parent, we offer you the opportunity for a 6-week program. This program runs once a week over 2 hours. It is an intensive experience that really helps to change the dynamics within your family towards growing and learning as parents.
Tuning into Kids is a program based on a wonderful program developed by psychologists. They have taken the research and translated it into easy and workable strategies for dealing with young children.
Coaching & Rapid Transformational Therapy
As parents, we can discover our own personal issues that prevent us from really enjoying our children and meeting their unique needs.
At Transform Parenting, we offer two options to working with individuals or couples.
We discuss your personal challenges as a family, and develop some practical ways to navigate the challenges – learning to do things differently.
Rapid Transformational Therapy
Tracey offers one-on-one opportunities to work with the deeper parts of your subconscious using a powerful therapeutic model.
This is the part of your brain that holds the key to our own growth as a person and a parent.
