The Heartbeat of the Family Home begins with Rhythm
Being a parent can feel overwhelming. Trying to care of the children, the house, the job, the other million and one things on the list that you just don't know where to start to make the best changes in your home. You want to do a good job but it often feels only mediocre. You want more from life, you want feel to confident and certain in your choices each day.
I know how much you want a more peaceful home, I can see how much you crave harmony and flow. I totally understand how you want to tear your hair out when you can't get your little one to brush their teeth or have a bath or get their shoes on. I know you want to feel confident in your role as a parent, even playful with your kids, you want to feel like you understand your children and you want to feel appreciated and respected for all that you do on a daily basis.
I want you to know that you were not meant to do this alone. Parents need support and guidance, so they can make choices that work for their unique family requirements and needs. It's not easy to make changes because we need time to look at our lives from a different perspective in order to make the changes over time to create the homes we want.
The good thing is that your life can be more connected and enjoyable, you can have more time to do the things you would like, and there can be harmony and flow as well as peace and joy! You can create a space and a feeling that just works in your home. Your children will feel more secure, they will feel more content and they know what to expect. You will flourish as a result. You will know how to make tweaks, you will know how to support your children and yourself and you will just be in the flow more than you are out of it!
This is where Rhythm comes in.
The Heart of the Home Course is taught over 5 weeks online where we will go deep in exploring your family values and what is important to you, how to create the life you want, and create harmony, flow, peace and joy. You will learn how to stay calm and connected for your children and confidently move through transitions more effectively in supporting your young children through the daily Rhythms you will create that make a difference to your life.
The best thing about the course is that you can do it self paced if you prefer to go at your own pace or struggle to keep up each week.

We are all connected but our Rhythms may look a little different
Each family is unique and has a slightly different lifestyle from the other, that is why each of our Rhythms are all a little bit different from one another, You create it bespoke for you and your family. What I love about this is that you get to connect with like-minded families who you learn from too in the process.
What else is included?
Each week there will be a Q and A video where I can answer your questions and support you in more depth with your family life.
There will also be further links to additional learning such as books, videos, I recommend should you wish to delve further into this.
I will also give you some journal questions which will help you to consider your family's unique needs and take some time to dig deeper into the creation of your family Rhythm and the values you have to create the family life you are dreaming of!
You also have lifetime access to the course which means every time I teach it you reap the benefits of doing it again each time or working on a different aspect of it as your family grows when you may be exploring changes that you might need to address. You also benefit from anything I add to the course in the future.
