A Little Known Fact

Children who are securely attached want to please their parents.

Outcomes of this Support Are

  • A more securely attached child.
  • An understanding of good attachment parenting behaviors that are easily applicable.
  • The ability to consistently apply attachment behaviors in your parenting on a day-to-day practical level, getting real results quickly.

Interruptions to bonding and attachment can cause ongoing problems for your children that make it harder to parent them. There are many life experiences that can compromise our child’s secure attachment, from the womb onwards.

For example, our medical birthing practices separate mom and baby immediately at birth, this interrupts the natural, healthy attachment process that happens right after birth. As parents we may have our own attachment challenges that can be transformed. Our attachment imprints affect how we parent. Parents need support; supported parent’s means happy relaxed children!

Parenting is one of the most rewarding and most challenging jobs on the planet. You may feel like you are permanently in an intensive workshop as a parent. Our culture can give us the impression that we should be able to cope alone, but it really does take a village to raise a child.

When there are attachment issues it can result in an alpha child who is very difficult to parent because s/he is in charge. Alpha children and their parents need support to get their family back into balance. Children are not equipped to be in charge. They need the adults to be in that role so that they can relax and feel secure. These are attachment issues that can be resolved by increased secure attachment.

Parents need support. Supported parent’s means happy relaxed children! Parenting is one of the most rewarding and most challenging jobs on the planet. You may feel like you are permanently in an intensive workshop as a parent. Our culture can give us the impression that we should be able to cope alone, but it really does take a village to raise a child. Many parenting books focus parents on their child’s behavior, rather than helping them to understand what the real message is underneath that behavior. I will support you to look underneath the behavior to the deeper message that is asking to be heard, so your child can feel heard and supported.

We often repeat the parenting we received, parent out of challenging and mistaken beliefs, or parent from our own trauma. You may not have had the time to answer your own questions about what kind of parent you want to be. You may not be happy with your parenting but feel unable to change it by yourself. Perhaps your child seems out of control, unhappy, or you are struggling to understand what’s going on. Parenting alone can be overwhelming, so it’s very important for parents and children that the family has outside support. It makes all the difference!

Co-parenting can be a challenge especially when there are two parenting styles involved, there has been a separation between the parents, or there is not enough communication and agreements about the parenting. Children can feel very confused when the co-parenting isn’t working as well as it could be, and their needs may go unnoticed.
Outcomes of this Work Are:

  • A deeper understanding of your child’s behaviors and struggles
  • Empowered and more conscious parenting
  • Workable co-parenting agreements
  • New resources and parenting skills for a happier family life
  • More secure attachment

I gained a lot from our conversation. When you asked me ``what kind of mother do I want to be`` you opened a door in my mind...I have been focusing so much on what kind of mother that I do not want to be that I didn’t even bother focusing on what I want for myself, and my children. That was extremely powerful for me and I thank you again for your support.

My work with Karen has enabled me to connect to my deepest self in a way I never knew was possible. In doing so, I have liberated my nervous system from much of it's past patterning, clearing the path for the conception, birth and life of my daughter. Through Karen's compassionate and powerful presence and touch, I learned to truly Trust. I am deeply grateful.
