The Top Parent Coaches parent coaches  / 29th November 2021

For those thinking of becoming a parent coach, let’s take a walk back first and interpret what a parent coach is, what type of people in what sort of careers make promising parent coaches, and then look at how to serve as a parent coach. 

A parent coach is an experienced and skilled individual who helps parents with parenting challenges by offering alternative viewpoints around family circumstances, disclosing techniques to shift behavior and family dynamics, and encouraging parents to accomplish their parenting objectives.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I believe parents parent from love, intuition, and logic, but that is often not enough when parenting a complex child.  I help parents understand the social and emotional impact that ADHD and executive function challenges have on learning, motivation, behavior, and the whole family system. I provide them with education, tools, and strategies so that they have more confidence and ability to support their children.  I approach each client with empathy and a non-judgmental belief that they have been doing their best with what they know.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I have developed a structure and model for teaching parents how to make systemic changes in understanding and approaching parenting their children.  The Calm and Connected© principles and model have helped thousands of parents worldwide guide their children with ADHD and Executive Function challenges to have more confidence and tools to manage their lives and succeed in their goals.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others? 

As a PCI Certified Parent Coach, I support parents by co-actively working together in finding new strategies that fit your family and your children. You are the expert of your family while I have my expertise in Parenting, Psychology and Coaching. On top of that, as a Positive Discipline Trainer, I teach very practical tools that parents can apply directly. With a combination of practicality, warmth and challenge I will take you on a road to personal parenting development. My goal is to help parents be the parent they want to be, so children can thrive, and parents can parent with confidence and joy. 

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The most important thing that has contributed to my success as a coach has been my own experience as a child and mother. When I became a mother I realized that you only start appreciating your parents when you become a parent yourself; this was a valuable insight that I remind myself of frequently. At the same time, my children help me grow and develop further every day. With love and challenge, they teach me to see things from a different point of view, they have shown me what genuine excitement is and they have taught me the extreme importance of connection. This connection is the most important component during my coaching journey.

The Top Parent Coaches parent coaches

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

Parents struggle to implement the parenting advice they read.  I solve that in 2 ways: First, I connect their personal values and vision for their family to their concrete day-to-day parenting decisions. That supports parents in being consistent and building trust with their kids. Second, from my 25+ years in the classroom, I teach parents how to use their bodies, voices and imaginations to engage their kids effectively, so they get the closeness and cooperation that makes for happy homes.  

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

Holding fast to one key idea is what makes me a successful coach. People do the best they can at the moment and, at the same time, are absolutely able to change and improve with support and practice.  When I hold that space 100% for my clients, that enables my clients to hold that space for their kids.  That shift in attitude promotes transformation in the whole family system.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

My coaching is based on neuroscience principles and is aimed at helping parents better understand themselves as well as their children. I use Non-Violent Communication to inspire parents to rethink the way they talk to each other, to themselves and to their children, so that everyone can learn to connect with their needs and feelings and express them assertively. My knowledge of attachment theory and respectful parenting help parents change their mindset when they feel stuck in situations so that with a new approach they can find better solutions for their families.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing is the ability to help parents look beyond the single moment, to set goals for themselves, to envision the kind of parent they want to be and to build a road that helps them get there. To free them from all the shoulds and feelings of guilt that parenthood brings along and to become the judges of their own actions based on their goals.

Lelia is an independent researcher, certified parent coach with a keen interest in relational neuroscience and holistic health.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

I cannot say for certain how I am different or what I do differently. My hope is that I offer an honest and helpful perspective as I have been practising peaceful parenting and reparenting for years and years with six diverse children. I well understand the highs and lows. So much of what I do to support others is what I have learned to do to support myself. I love Ram Dass’s saying, “I help people as a work on myself and I work on myself to help people.” 

As I work on my triggers I can more easily find rest in the glimmers and rise to raise myself and my children, not perfectly but intentionally. People often ask me why I’m so interested in parenting, it’s wellbeing I am interested in. I love the work of re-parenting ourselves to live by our values and pursue our dreams as we honour our full human experience.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

I would say the single most important thing would be recognizing that I don’t need to be perfect to help others. This belief helped me feel more confident creating and sharing relatable empowering content. I hope and trust in the sacred service of consciously holding space for others. My hope is that people I can help find me. I take each person’s time seriously without taking myself too seriously. We all deserve to find brave spaces where we can be vulnerable and safely belong.

She has been exploring psychology on her own and applying her learning to all relationships. In the last 7 years, all that knowledge was put to the test when she became a mother. The challenges she faced led her to train under dr. Shefali Tsabary and obtain a certification as a Conscious Parenting Coach.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

The biggest difference in my approach with parents is my ability to reveal to them how their perceived challenges with their children are their greatest opportunity. I focus on parental evolution and the reclamation of the self by inspiring parents to deconstruct their triggers and patterns. I use the Conscious Parenting Method and the Compassionate Inquiry approach among other disciplines to help parents strip away their layers of conditioning so that they can love who they are first and then deeply love their children. This truly helps liberate people from their own mental prison, accept and connect with their kids, and live a life of harmony and joy.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing has been my ability to relate to parents as a parent myself. I have deep compassion, empathy and an understanding of the many challenges parents face. My ability to be present and non-judgmental creates a space of trust and safety for parents to share anything and everything and together walk a journey to an amazing relationship with their child.

What do you do differently or how is your coaching different from others?

My Coaching merges the most recent neuroscience-based Parenting Approaches with the proven-effective NLP and Coaching Techniques, applied to the Family framework. Parents develop new relationship skills and acquire new strategies and tools to apply and personalize in their daily Family life, in order to make clear what situation they’re in, identify their improvement areas, explore all possible solutions and take action. A goal-driven process, that redefines their Parenting Style, reduces stress, struggles and shouting, and helps them rediscover the pleasure of Family Life. I support Parents in Group Workshops as well as in One-to-One or Couple Coaching Sessions.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

Parents feel I’m just one of them; being a mother myself, in fact, keeps me growing with my kids and learning every day. But Parenting is not only my life or my job; Parenting is my passion and my mission. I keep on studying and making research and, as long as I get to something that really works, I share it with my Coachees or introduce it in my Program. Moreover, my non-judgmental attitude, as well as my non-schoolteacher style, turns Workshops and Sessions into great opportunities to work on oneself and reach powerful personal insights.

My programs are based on Life Coaching, NLP, NVR (None Violence Resistant), ASIST first aid suicide interventions and neuroscience for parents.

What according to you has been the single most important thing that has contributed to your success as a coach?

The single most important thing that has contributed to my success as parent coach has been sharing with my clients my own experience as suicidal teenager and the story repeating itself with my son. Bringing my own experience together with my skills on life coaching, NLP, NVR and first aid suicide interventions, being authentic and deeply caring to helps my clients has put me in a position where we build deep relationships between us enabling me to successfully help their families and turn their lives around.
