1:1 Coaching For Parents

wordswag_1555420203432-12323905508246886829.pngThis is a professional coaching service for parents that can go beyond birth and postnatal support.

I have developed these 1:1 sessions to provide support, motivation and focus for people who are also parents – to focus on the varying personal challenges while also balancing your responsibilities as a parent.

This is about providing individualised sessions for the person behind the parent, to talk through and focus on the challenges affecting you…

  • feeling overwhelmed and in need of some thinking space
  • stress management
  • better life balance
  • effective coping strategies
  • working through parenting and family challenges
  • thinking through work challenges
  • focus for decision-making
  • focus on what your need
  • needing clarity, focus and motivation
  • to focus on you, to address the challenges and to boost your wellbeing
  • for general life challenges
  • being the parent you want to be

“I had an amazing 1:1 with Janine – I feel like a huge weight has been lifted.”

Life can be busy with juggling responsibilities, meeting people’s needs and keeping on top of everything – it is easy to feel lost or overwhelmed at times. These sessions are not about being told what to do and they are not counselling – they are about having the opportunity to offload, to focus on the challenges, to focus on what you want to achieve, to plan, to develop strategies, to be listened to and to have some thinking space. From that can come less stress, better communication, change and better life balance.

wordswag_1540827340937The aim of these sessions is to have the thinking space to focus on your needs, while also being mindful of how they fit in with meeting the needs of your family.

Sessions are private, confidential and non-judgemental. They are informal but professional and they can take place in my teaching space, in your home, at work, in a café, on a walk, over the phone or over video-call.


£45 for up to 90-minutes | Accompanied by individual session notes
Regular appointments can also be arranged | £40

I am able to provide daytime, evening & weekend sessions to work around your schedule. 


121 2With Janine Smith

A specialist in pregnancy & birth, early parenting and parent wellbeing

I have worked with parents from expectant and new parents since 2002 and I trained as a coach in 2016 to be able to work with parents beyond the postnatal period.

As a mother of two, I am very aware of balancing family, work and me, along with the motherload, managing stress and keeping going so I can also be the parent I want to be. The juggling means that parents can be busy and under a lot of strain to keep everything going – this is why I work with parents to provide an extra level of support.
