ATTACHED AT THE HEART PARENT COACHING

What words would you like to use, to describe your children 10 years from now? Kind, empathetic, happy, helpful, confident, resilient, capable... Sound pretty good? As an AATH and Positive discipline trained parent coach, I will guide you and your family towards these amazing characteristics as we look at your long-term parenting goals. We will find workable ways to parent that teach respect, and cultivate amazing little humans!

I can help you with:

  • attachment-focused parenting preparation

  • temper tantrums, outbursts, anger

  • picky eaters, food battles, starting solid foods

  • hitting and biting

  • transitions: siblings, back to work, moving, vacation prep

Parent coaching sessions start at $200 for our initial visit, and $100 per follow up. 
Please expect up to 1.5 hours together for our first meeting. Follow up visits are usually 1 hour.
Any time we spend together above the times outlines will be charged at $25/15 minutes.
If we choose to set up weekly or monthly phone check ins as part of our plan, the fee is $2/minute.
If you prefer that I come to your home, please add a $50 out of office fee, and $0.75/km for locations over 50km from my office.

 

general parenting, sleep or other parenting Phone Consultations:

Phone consultations are a fantastic option if you’re not sure what you need, or just need a quick chat about one or two topics or incidents. Sometimes, all we do need is to tell our story and understand if our baby is ok, healthy and their behavior is normal! Other times, we need some coaching on how to remain the calm, loving and welcoming parent our children need us to be! Whatever it is, I’m here to help you.

All phone consultations cost $2/minute. Clients are charged for the duration of our booked call plus any overage.
Initial phone consultations are booked for 60 minutes (please let me know if you feel you need less time).
Follow ups are booked for 15, 30 or 60 minutes as needed.

dad's night out

Parenting can be challenging, and a network of others to bounce situations and problems off of is often the answer. Dads and non-birthing partners often get left out of the typical support such as - “moms groups” and other Social Media pages dedicated mostly to moms. This new drop-in is for new and experienced dads to meet others, talk about life, partners and parenting and help each other out. 

Kevin Pickett, a father of three busy, crazy and well-behaved-on-occasion kids and his wife Ashley, local parent educator, run this free drop in! Their combined experience of raising kids, owning a business and maintaining their marriage have driven them to want to help all families thrive too. In their 13 years as parents they have experienced every version of sleep arrangements, nighttime parenting, mental wellness and postpartum mood disorders, practicing positive and attachment focused care, full-term breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, marriage concerns and recovery of their relationship over and over.. Kevin & Ashley know how hard this is, and want other fathers to know they are supported and can thrive too!!

Come out to Boston Pizza on the third Friday of each month from 7:30-9:30pm... grab a drink, and meet other dads and partners in Halton. Please RSVP with a quick email to kgpickett@hotmail.com so we know how many to expect.
