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

“Fun and interactive – there was never a quiet moment as employees of all levels and from all across the business ‘walked the wheel’ exploring, sharing and most importantly laughing as we all realised we shared common issues and themes.”
Sarah Cooper, Morgan Stanley’s Parents Network Steering Committee.

"I love the way the 7-Day Parent Coach empowers parents to tackle the daily stresses and strains that can make parenting feel like an endurance test at times."
