Thriving Tweens




Happiness, Confidence and Resilience 

– for you and your kids aged 10-13 years-



We were all born to Thrive


There is a simple yet profound understanding about what makes humans tick that has the potential to transform every element of having a child, and being one.

Ages 10-13 can be tricky transitional years – moving schools, the onset of hormones, constantly being plugged into their devices, feeling a lack of confidence and self-doubt are all common experiences.

What if you, as a parent, could learn how to transform your parenting from shouting, threatening and nagging to a relationship with your child where none of that was required?

What if your kids could learn the same fundamental principles in a way that made sense to them at the same time and helped them become happy, resilient, thriving children?




Imagine a family where both you and your kids knew where true happiness really came from and were able to tap into that whenever required? Do you think your house would be a little calmer??! 




Our children have an unlimited potential for thriving and success. When we talk and engage with that part of our kids, guess what we get? A child who can flourish in any circumstance – whatever life may throw at them.




How about if you truly saw how completely unbreakable your kids are? If you could see how they (and you) are naturally designed to bounce back. Would that change how you handled the latest upset at school?



For You



Learn how to parent peacefully in a stress-free way with these six simple Masterclasses.


Love & Understanding

How do you help your child thrive and flourish? It’s simple. With love and understanding. In this module we explore why that’s the case and how to have this be the foundation from which we parent.



 What You See is What You Get

We’re not actually dealing with an angry, anxious or highly sensitive child. Instead we can only ever experience our child through our own state of mind. Understanding this changes everything about how we parent.



Who They Really Are

On a day-to-day basis we tend to interact with our child’s behaviours and personalities. But what if they were more than just that? Seeing who your kids really are allows you to bring out the very best in them.



Why They Behave Like They Do

Is it hormones? Is it moving to a new school? Falling out with their friends? What they’re eating (or not!) that’s behind their difficult behaviour? In this module we take a fresh look at what’s really going on.


Discipline and Conflict

It’s tiring trying to ‘manage’ behaviour all the time, trying to get them to come of their phones and shouting all the time and quite frankly, it just doesn’t feel good. So what’s the alternative? Here’s where we’ll explore just this.


Helping Them Thrive

The more we understand about how human beings work for ourselves, the more able we become as parents. Our children have unlimited potential to thrive and succeed and in this module we’ll look at how to unlock this.





You can also decide to receive the Modules below to share with your child each week. These will help you share these same principles with your children in a way that makes sense to them, given their age. If you wish, your child can also receive their own personal log-in details and podcast link – might as well put those devices to good use!



There will also be a private Facebook Group where you can connect with other parents all looking in the same direction. You can post questions there and I will answer them in a weekly relaxed and informal Q&A session each Friday at 2pm UK for the six weeks of the program (recording available if you can’t make the call live).






For Them



Six modules focussing on core themes, each of which are broken down into bitesize chunks. Based on the established SPARK curriculum, these will be delivered directly to you, and directly to your child as well if you wish.


 Tricky Feelings

Sometimes we get sad, worried, angry or nervous and we don’t know what to do to handle the situation better. In this first module we’ll explore the link between how we think and how we feel. We’ll also talk about how to make better decisions so you feel better at school and at home. 




Finding Your Inner Spark

Getting to know your own internal guidance system and the fact that it can never be broken.



Feeling Confident

Learning how much power to give stress and anxiety and how be naturally self-confident


Moods and How to Handle Them

Learning how different states of mind can impact on communication and reactions and how to navigate them more easily. 


Bullying from the Inside-Out

Understanding why some people bully others and how it’s impossible for your SPARK to be damaged.


Academic Stress to Academic Success

Seeing how thoughts can create barriers to thriving academically and realising your true potential.





Your Teacher


 I am a mother of three and an Advanced Transformational coach. My own life was transformed from one of anxiety and stress to one where I experience a light-heartedness and carefreeness I never knew was possible. This has made a huge difference to my own parenting and I’ve always wanted a way to share what I’ve learned with my children so they can grow up knowing this right from the start. This program is my attempt to do just that. And share with you on the way!
