  • Before I started parenting sessions I was worried I would be judged a s a bad parent. But Elizabeth was A-m-a-z-ing! She was warm, understanding, non-judgemental and compassionate. Simply fabulous.Elizabeth has transformed our home life by restoring calm, understanding and fun back.She is well informed on children and parents and made us feel very normal when we confided about our problems and concerns.Importantly, Elizabeth is such a warm generous and positive person and coach that she instils a belief that anything is possible.

  • Elizabeth is the ‘child whisperer.’ She is excellent. Working with her is very helpful, and gives you a tool-kit to better manage the children and to better manage yourself. And doing the sessions by Skype was quite convenient.After working with Elizabeth, life is still hectic, but now I feel I have better tools to manage. When my 3 year old would go into meltdown I would get angry with him for being disobedient, now I have understanding that he simply can’t rationalise and needs to be emotionally defused before he can be rationalised with.

  • Hi Elizabeth.I thought I’d give you an update on my situation. Returned to court yesterday and finally got an agreement which means I no longer have to see my children at the contact centre, and after a few weeks of progressing the amount of access I have, within a few weeks I will be having full access to my kids.The course which I attended and your supporting letter I feel has gone a long way to helping me achieve these goals and once again I would like to give you a huge thank you for your help and support. Keep up the good work.Best wishes

  • Coming to the Parenting course was the best thing I have done and very good value for money too! I have learned a lot and it has changed the way I understand my children and be able to deal with the challenging situations. I feel blessed I had the opportunity to come and think Elizabeth is an amazing lady. She is gifted to do what she does and there is just no one like her. She is truly a godsend and I will be talking about her forever as she is a biggest idol to me. She must continue doing what she does as she does magic.

  • I attended the Positive Parenting course Elizabeth runs and would thoroughly recommend it. Elizabeth has a great delivery Dad listening to his daughter style, makes everyone feel at ease and welcome and her knowledge and expertise on parenting and helping parents is outstanding. The methods she taught me, and the way they are presented have really made a difference both to me and my daughter. Anyone reading this who is thinking of attending Elizabeth’s course please, do yourself the biggest favour you could for yourself and your child and go ahead and book. You won’t regret it.”

  • Before coming on the course I felt that I was a useless parent and felt I was at a crossroads not knowing which way to turn. I was tired and exhausted having not had a full nights sleep for two years. Elizabeth gave me the techniques to be able to deal and sort these situations. I have been absolutely amazed with the results of practising these techniques. I know I can be a great parent and I now have so many tools to deal with every situation that occurs. Thank you Elizabeth you have restored my faith in myself, my parenting and most of all given me 4 nights full sleep in the first week of trying to get both children in bed!

  • Elizabeth O’Shea –truly inspirational as a trainer & what a wonderful experience to attend the Parent 4 Success course. I would highly recommend this course (and have done so already) for first time parents who are feeling overwhelmed & who want the best for their child /children but feel they are not succeeding as the best parent they can be. I loved this course – I was inspired to be a better parent. I started being more positive and that impacted greatly on Robert. Brilliant -The most wonderful course I have done since my last year at University.

    Jeannine Mum of one
  • I feel that my daily life with my children has become a more positive experience and my children’s behaviour has improved. I feel I am equipped to move forward and continue to make positive steps with my children.

  • New techniques to improve family life. Of all the jobs I’ve had, parenting is definitely the most challenging and the most important one to get right. I’m always interested in learning how to do things better and have enjoyed leaning new techniques to improve our family life.

What is a ‘parenting coach’?

A parenting coach is a parenting specialist who can give expert help and advice to help you with your child’s behaviour.  It could be anything from your child not sleeping, tantrums, having problems getting a child to do homework, stealing, a teenager going off the rails, or anything you find difficult to deal with.

It is not coaching in the traditional sense of the word, because I will give you specific advice on how to solve issues.

What does parent coaching involve?

Before the coaching starts, it’s important to find out about what issues you’re dealing with. We’ll start with a phone or Skype call first, with me, free of charge, to check if we’re a good fit.

Normally, after this call, I’ll let you know how many sessions will be needed to get the issues sorted.  If you’re happy to go ahead, you will then fill out a background form, with questions about lots of different aspects of your child’s or children’s lives.

I will make a list of all the problems and issues, work out what parenting skills or strategies you need to get it sorted, and then teach you those strategies on your session(s).

Do you need to see my child?

No, I don’t need to see your child. I’ll show you how to change their behaviour. I just need the information from the background form, to work out what needs to change at home.

As you go through the sessions I’ll ask you questions to check how your child is behaving using the new strategies. I can then tweak the strategies so that they work well for your child.

The most important thing is that YOU know how to deal with your child’s behaviour, not just now, but in the months and years ahead.

What problems don’t you deal with?
  • Children with profound autism
  • Children unable to speak
  • Severe mental health issues
  • Children 17 or over
  • Teenage drug addiction
  • Parental drug or alcohol addiction
