Welcome dear parents! I am so delighted you are here and I hope I can support you in your journey to parent in a conscious and respectful way so your family will thrive and flourish.
I am Pamela, a certified parenting coach based in in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I provide my parenting services locally in person and internationally with the help of Zoom.
I have used the Hand in Hand Parenting approach with my own children since 2015 and I became a certified Hand in Hand Parenting Instructor in January 2020.
More About Me
First and foremost I am a parent to my two amazing children. They are my best teachers. Never has a day passed since becoming a mum without learning something new about myself and about life.
Parenting for me is both a joy and a constant challenge. I am motivated to do my own healing work in order to be able to show up for my children. There are many days when things go wrong, where I fall into the old patterns of blame and shame. But I am so much less reactive than I was when I first became a parent. I have the tools to navigate the inevitable challenges that life sends our way.
It often looks messy, but I know I have a ‘tote bag’ of practices and strategies to guide me back to being the calm and capable parent I want to be.
I spent years of my parenting journey trying to figure out what I was getting wrong, why parenting was so hard and why I found it so challenging. I highly valued being a responsive and respectful parent but my old patterns were getting in the way. I was often impatient and angry despite my best efforts to stay calm and in control.
"I cannot thank Pamela enough for the patience, warmth and kindness she has shown. She has given me the tools to make a difference in the relationship with my children."
