PRAISE FROM HAPPY PARENTS

  • I just want to express how amazed I am at the work you do and how it all works. My son Zak who is 9 has been out of control at school, at aftercare and at home with all the symptoms of ADHD. He expressed some dark thoughts and I was really concerned that he was going to suffer and destroy his life like his father but before putting him on medication, we gave your work a try. After this group session, Zak has been back to his own self again, happy, funny and loving. I receive great notes from his teachers and I can finally relax. It became so clear that the patterns of his father and grandfather were at play and the cycle could be broken and it can be that simple. Zachary took this work seriously and naturally. Kids understand soul love, forgiveness and energy. My son is very thankful to you too.

  • My daughter has a lot of problems with social anxiety. She has a really hard time talking to most people, especially in school. We have started therapy with Carla a few weeks ago. Carla uses a very balanced approach, where she focuses on underlying emotions and behavior at the same time. The therapists we’ve tried in the past seemed to exclusively do either one or the other. Moreover she uses art therapy to help my daughter open up. What I like very much and seems to be especially helpful is that Carla looks at the bigger picture in terms of family dynamics and past trauma, which can even include past generations. After only a few sessions I can see a difference in my daughter. She has definitely started talking more to other kids and is now often able to give short answers even to strangers' questions, which has been very difficult for her.

Mindful, Heart-Based Parenting?

Yes!  A perfect match. 
Mindful - conscious
 means being present in the moment and aware of your OWN actions. Being fully aware of who you ARE and not projecting your past experiences and frustrations on children. You are in control of you.

Heart -Based refers to the awareness of and focus on love behind your intentions, actions and behavior. You control your choice of words, while recognizing how they affect your children. Your intuition leads you and your mind observes and reflects.

Raising your child: you can only do it once.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “Children don’t come with a manual,” or “It takes a village to raise a child”. Yet, parenting should not be a struggle, but a joy!

On a global scale, it seems that that there are not too many happy families. In the past, raising children was often done in a negative nature - both physically and emotionally. Today, many moms and dads are looking for alternative ways of parenting and want to make conscious, effective and loving choices in parenting styles. But, how do you parent differently?

If your upbringing was an negative experience you will first need to heal from the effects and pain.

You want to integrate your experiences and draw wisdom from them.

You want to consciously create a harmonious, happy life for you and your children that you so truly deserve!
