Why Does my Child find making Friends so Challenging?

Understand why your child may prefer to play alone, why they appear to have no friends. More importantly learn how you can help them overcome this difficulty, leading to a much happier child (and of course you as a parent!)



I Just Don’t Understand You

I Just Don’t Understand….Sound Familiar?

Is This Your (or Your Child’s) Everyday??

We all need to feel understood……how frustrating is it when you feel like someone doesn’t understand what you are saying?
Equally we all need to feel like WE understand…..how anxious or stressed do we feel when we aren’t quite sure whats going on?


Day 12- It’s Time

IMG_6555Time…Its time…. They say all good things must come to an end, when I look at my feet today I am thinking yes it’s time…time to return to the convenience of a hot shower and perhaps a good lather of soap!

I have loved almost every part of the journey the opportunity to experience my Listening Program in one of the most beautiful parts of Outback Australia over the past 12 days has been a amazing.map

What an incredible journey, 12 days, 3,000km ….Now with a new found sense of peace it’s time for me to return home and continue my work…


Day 11 – Healthy Body Healthy Brain

IMG_6548Healthy Body, Healthy Brain

Just as my regular practice of yoga keeps my body healthy, my regular practice of The Listening Program keeps my brain healthy.

Today I thought about how there is much value and awareness on our children eating well for healthy bodies, but the value and awareness of good brain health in our kids is often missed.

Regular use of The Listening Program supports good brain processing; the importance of maintenance listening is very significant. I have many families still using their Listening Program (TLP) some 5 or more years later. After all it’s a drug free, non-invasive, gentle way to support the brain. I have numerous documented cases and an army of committed parents to support my position of the benefits of repeating a cycle of TLP annually. So to anyone reading this today not doing their listening, time to take it out the cupboard charge it up and start nurturing your brain once again.

Develop your own healthy practice today for both Body and Brain – Namaste x

Day 10 – There’s Always a Way

IMG_6356There’s Always a Way

Those of you who know my youngest well, know we have a long history of being caught reading at the wrong times….the top of monkey bars, 3am, whilst skateboarding and yes even in the shower! In fact, a while back he was banned from reading in the mornings until he was ready for school- go figure!

You would think it would be hard to read out here with no power, but no as you see there is Always a Way!

So too it is with our kids, when learning is difficult and it seems like it’s never going to happen. Remember there is Always a Way. Always a Way to Learn. Just as, once my son had the right “set up” he could read tonight, once the brain has the right “set up” it can learn.  We innately want to learn, only when there is some kind of road block does that learning become frustrating and a negative experience. When many of the kids I work with start The Listening Program they seem to magically start to progress in reading, language and literacy, its more that the brain now has the right “set up” and just like my son was incredibly happy sitting here tonight being able to read in darkness these kids become incredibly happy that their darkness has also been illuminated.

Shine a light on their learning potentials tonight
