Resources

Over the years I have come across some wonderful practitioners that support new parents.
If you require any support please feel free to contact these people directly.

Circle of Security Parenting

The course is everyone who wants to build positive relationships and attachment with children, it’s not just for parents who are struggling to build connections. The primary focus is on parents and carers of children aged 0-8 years. You will learn skills useful for babies from 4 months old sometimes earlier, so the course is suitable for pregnant couples.
