Welcome to the Parent Coaching Academy

Welcome to The Parent Coaching Academy, the UK’s leading Parent Coaching organisation.  I established the PCA because I’m passionate about supporting mums and dads in the most rewarding, challenging and important job they’ll ever do in their lives.  If you are a pioneering and dynamic employer committed to helping parents achieve their full potential – at home and at work – I look forward to working with you.

"It was really good to see how much the guys really cared about trying to be a great Dad and just how many of the challenges we face are the same, whether we had one new baby or a house full of belligerent teenagers."
Andy Campbell, Head of Sales Ophthalmics, Novartis Pharmaceuticals

“The basic concept is that it’s the same person who comes to work who was at home.  If you’ve got issues at home with your children then you’re going to be less productive at work”
D Wilson, Head of People Networks, BT, Sunday Times

“Lorraine helped me to clarify what I wanted from a nanny when I went back to work, most of all she helped me to get the confidence to make big changes in my life.”
E Lipworth, Sunday Times
