I love being able to help parents grow into their authentic self and transform the relationships in their family. Ultimately this work comes down to joy… we release the baggage that's keeping us stuck so we can bring in more joy through deep relationships with ourselves and then our kids. Empowered parenting, like conscious parenting, is about curiosity, empathy, deep connection and playfulness. We give ourselves and our children grace; they are not bad and in need of punishment they are good and in need of our guidance. All behaviour is communication. We lean in and listen to what the behaviour is telling us. Most importantly, empowered parenting is about the parent’s personal growth. Our triggers are our guides and our children are our mirrors. We work on ourselves, in our knowledge, skills and self awareness so we can show up for our kids in sturdy reliable presence.

Emily has helped me work through some significant emotional blocks related to my parenting. I have new insight into why I get frustrated and irritable. She helps me come back into the core of myself and my vision for who I want to be as a parent. She is really fun to work with, intuitive, humorous and relatable. I felt supported, heard and always came away with a new feeling of relief in my body and some ideas for how to engage differently with myself and my kids (ages three and six).

Emily made a huge difference in our family’s dynamics and our parenting. I feel more connected to my children and in tune of my own feelings and needs. Emily listens and asks questions that puts the “problem” in a different light. Her guidance helped me to clarify my thoughts and feel calmer and intentional with my children. Emily has wealth of knowledge about mind, body and the interconnection and I keep using her tips daily in parenting but also to feel more connected with myself and the wider world. Emily transformed our parenting and I highly recommend her coaching.

Coaching with Emily has had a profound effect on my relationship with my children (and myself) in a very short space of time. Emily has an ability to listen deeply to what you are saying and finds paths of truth and understanding when thoughts feel tangled in your mind. I have been able to enjoy time with my children, find the calm I’ve been searching for more often and the forgiveness of myself when it isn’t so easy. Emily’s understanding of the body and how it holds emotion means she is able to bring a different awareness to parenting challenges and give really practical techniques to help in the moment as well as working on bigger pattern breaking. I would highly recommend coaching with Emily, it will not only deepen your relationship with your family but with yourself too.

Emily's coaching has had an immeasurable impact on my relationships with my kids and with myself as a mother. We experience significantly more joy together and I feel very connected to my kids and to myself. Emily is incredibly knowledgeable about the science that underpins the empowered parenting philosophy and has a large bank of additional resources on relevant issues at the tip of her tongue. However, what is most impressive about Emily is how skillful she is at attuning herself to her clients quickly. This means that she is able to guide her clients through the matters that have been standing in their way of reaching their full potential as parents. Her compassionate, non-judgmental and supportive approach made me feel at ease during the sessions, which in turn helped me explore issues I had previously found difficult to engage with. I would wholeheartedly recommend Emily as a parenting coach.
