When I became a mother, I didnít feel confident as I didnít have all of the skills or knowledge I needed to support my childís physical, emotional, psychological and intellectual development. Letís face it, the neuroscientists know about supporting a childís early brain development, the nutritionists and other health professionals know how to nourish and to exercise a childís growing body; the psychologists know the best ways to support a childís emotional and psychological development so that they grow into well-balanced, capable and resilient adults.

I also wanted to support parents in their journey.
