Parent Workshops

Becoming the parent of a child with complex disabilities opened up a whole new community to me that I didn’t even know existed. We’re a funny bunch of people from all walks of life held together by the tread of loving someone with a disability.

Over the years, I have found strength in sharing our stories. We are stronger together and can make big changes – for the better. Like the pebbles on a beach our stories shape us, change us and make us who we are today.

I love facilitating workshops with other parents as we explore what it means to be a parent of a child with additional needs. There are some hard lessons to learn and this new normal can be challenge, so doing it together works best.

I aim for each workshop to be relaxed and open, where I share a little of my own real life experiences and encourage others to share their stories too. Each workshop has a practical component aimed at helping people relax and think outside the box.

Workshop topics include:

  • “Don’t call me mum” How to get the best out of your professional.

  • More than surviving: becoming the parent of a child with additional needs

  • Living an unexpected story

  • Effective communication with professionals

  • Broken and Whole

  • Fight Club: learning the art of fighting as the parent of a child with additional needs

  • What if? The world of blame and forgiveness

  • Protecting your child from body shape changes
