‘The coaching day was real, honest, positive, out of the box (i.e. fresh insight and understanding). I thought it was amazing, I learnt a lot and feel inspired.  Lorraine is awesome.”
Mark Huggins, Church Leader

“If you only had one tool to help parents in their Relationship with their children, then Parent coaching would have to be first choice”
Philip Bannister, Trustee, Avenquest Community Regeneration Trust

‘Having worked with parents for over 20 years – my only regret is that parent coaching was not around way back then.  I’ve learnt so much more in 1 day than other training has offered over longer periods.’
Karen Gregory, PSA, Wellfield Community School
