Coaching for parents, including homeschooling-parents enables adults to reflect on how they can facilitate their child’s development at home by preparing activities in a Montessori informed way and understand the how these activities are underpinned by Montessori philosophy. The activities, while important in themselves also help prepare children for other activities, language development, sensorial and motor skills, communication, cooperation and greater independence. Juggling roles of ‘parent’ and ‘educator’ can be a tricky area for many adults and the relationship is key, when there is more than one child or a child has additional needs things can get even trickier. Helping children to understand and manage their moods through co-regulation helps the whole child and is essential for children who are anxious, depressed or struggle with intense feelings.
I have an extensive background as an Internal Montessori School teacher in Hong Kong, Germany having trained in India and Ireland. I hold an MSc in Education for sustainability as well as an MSc in person-centred Counselling and Psychotherapy. My breadth professional training in Focusing-Oriented Therapy and Brainspotting, as well as my qualifications and practical experience, gives me a unique perspective to recognise the common pitfalls we as parents and educators commonly fall into and provide support in developing ways forward.
