The Empowered Parenting Programme

Breaking Family Cycles And Building Bonds

You will develop a clear understanding of what your child's emotional needs are and why they are needed.

We will explore how you were parented and how that translates to how you parent your child.

But most importantly, you will be able to parent from a confident and calm place as a result of developing the skills and understanding needed to enable your child to thrive.

Before I tell you about Empowered Parenting, let's look at who this is for.

 

If you are......

  • Concerned about whether you have the knowledge, patience and confidence you need to be the parent you want to be.¬†
  • Unsure how your actions affect your child's future decision-making and mental health and how to make the right decisions for your child.
  • Worried that you won't know how to manage your child's tantrums and emotions.
  • You may be looking at your own childhood and thinking, ' I want to do it differently, but I'm not sure how.'
  • Or you may want to know everything there is to know about your child's development to give them the best start in life, but you are struggling to find the guidance you need.

The fact that you are even reading this is precisely why you are already a great parent. That's not to say that we don't all have plenty to learn.

You care about your child's future so much that you want to learn as much as possible to ensure they thrive. Therefore, in my opinion, you are already amazing.

That, however, doesn't change the fact that the elusive manual to parenting is still hard to find until now.

You are 100% in the right place. 

Come and join me in my venture to improve our children's opportunities for the future, and start enjoying your parenting journey every day.

This course has been a life changer. The best parenting course I have been on. It's delivered in a non-judgmental way and without blame. It looks at the root causes of why we parent in the way we do and how kids respond as a result. It teaches new ways to resolve current issues and helps you understand how and why they developed in the first place.

Nicki understands so much, which helps you to feel accepted and that you are doing the best you can, which is everything when opening up.

Amazing, thank you so much! Nicki, you're amazing.

I have learnt a lot on this course about myself, my family and how to support my son. It has been a lovely group of people.

I thoroughly recommend this course.

 

Anonymous -  Erewash, Derbyshire

This course is priceless!

Wherever you managed to find this lovely lady, she is like gold. I'm so grateful to be on this course.It's been amazing.Thank you.

Plus, you will be backed by a Risk-Free 14-day money-back Guarantee.

The Empowered Parenting programme has been created due to working with hundreds of clients over 1000's hours over 20+ years as a therapist. If I have learnt anything in that time, it's that parenting is at the heart of how we cope and manage our responses to life's challenges.

That said, I didn't create the theories encapsulated in this course, but the experience is all mine, and I wanted to bring it to you in a simple way that can be understood with little psychobabble.

If, however, after 14 days, you feel the course is no longer for you, I am happy to provide you with a full refund.

All I would ask is that you complete the feedback form (which I will email you upon your request) to help me make any needed adjustments‚ÄĒyour opinion matters.

Still thinking about it?

 
The Empowered Parenting programme is PERFECT for you if… 

  • You are ready to get to the heart of what your child needs and put the work in to make the changes that enable you to parent from an informed place.
  • With so much information out there, you are struggling to know the rights and wrongs of parenting, and you want to explore the part you play in your child's development. 
  • You are ready to implement simple but effective strategies to help you feel calm and confident on your parenting journey.
  • You are already investing everything you have into your child.

  • At times you may feel a little out of your depth and want to feel confident and assured that you've got this.
  • You are excited to build a solid relationship with your child based on trust and respect and to watch your relationship flourish with them throughout the years as a result.
  • You are ready to dive deeper to get to the root of your parenting style and achieve the desired results.
  • Finally, you want to look back and KNOW you worked hard to be the best parent you can be.

Amanda - Erewash, Derbyshire

Being on this course has helped me to understand that being the parent I want to be, comes from understanding myself more and reminding myself that I won't get everything right all of the time.I am determined to keep trying my best.

 
Anonymous - Erewash, Derbyshire

I have learned some great insights into how to be a better parent. I also understand emotions better and different parenting styles.

I have taken a lot from the group and feel more confident in myself and as a parent.

I can't wait for you to join The Empowered Parenting programme.

 

After over 20 years of being a therapist, it has become clear that a person's childhood inevitably features in their therapeutic journey somewhere, whether their childhood was good, bad or indifferent.

Helping people navigate their histories and, in many cases, heal has been an absolute privilege; however, I want to do MORE.

I want to help parents give their children the best start possible, not just with information passed down the generations but from their own exploration and decision-making.

The parent-child relationship is more important than ever. I can't wait to support you in parenting from a calm and confident space and developing a relationship with your child that can remain strong throughout your lives.

I have decided to encapsulate all of my knowledge and experience and bring it to you in the shape of "The Empowered Parenting Programme".

Remember there is a 14-day Money Back Guarantee, and if after your FREE initial consultation or within the 14 days you decide it's not for you, I will provide you with a full refund. 

Hopefully, I have covered all bases, and you are ready to come and join me.

I can't wait to meet you.

I will speak to you soon.

A little note from me to you:

 

If you've got this far on this page, I'm so pleased you're here and considering embarking on this journey. I genuinely believe you have so much to gain and nothing to lose by taking this leap of faith.

I want to be completely upfront and clear about the course content and process.

Throughout the course, some areas require a deeper exploration and reflection on how you were parented and how this may have affected your life.

You need to know that this programme is here without judgment, and this is not about blame and retribution. It is simply about understanding.

If you're unsure but are keen to find out more, drop me a message, and we can schedule a 'course call' to ensure that you are in the right place.

If you have any questions or concerns, I will iron them out on this call.

We've got this.
