What is Secure Parenting?

The Circle of Security® Parenting™ (COS-P) is based on decades of research. It focuses on the relationship between children and their parents and how strengthening this connection can increase emotional security. Children have relationship needs from the first moment of life. My aim is to help you know the ways to build the foundation for all that comes later on in life so that your child can experience secure and rewarding relationships. It also assists in switching the focus of our attention away from the problem behaviour and onto the relationship needs that are always there, in plain sight.

I can help parents to:

  • Understand their child's emotional world,

  • Learn to read emotional cues & respond accordingly,

  • Understanding why children act out and what do to help them learn to manage their behaviour,

  • Support children to successfully manage emotions,

  • Enhance the development of a child's self-esteem,

  • Honour the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be securely attached and have good trusting relationships.

Research has shown that secure children are able to:

  • Enjoy more happiness

  • Feel less anger 

  • Turn to parents for help when in trouble, from childhood into adolescence

  • Solve problems in their social world more efficiently

  • Have a higher self-esteem

  • Have lasting relationships with friends 

  • Trust others and share emotional intelligence throughout their interactions with others.

My Parenting Philosophy: 

Parents can learn to read their child’s emotional needs and monitor their own responses to create harmony and understanding.It is never too late or too early to create a securely attached child.​

  • We strive for good-enough parenting that is blame & guilt free.

  • Being kind to ourselves increases our capacity to be kind to those we love.

  • Creating secure attachments translates into having more satisfaction as a parent and creating quality relationships that your child can draw on throughout their whole life.
