Meetings usually take place ONLINE. In this way I can support families from everywhere effectively and very successfully. This can include Parenting Support Sessions as well as Coaching Sessions with the child.

How do ONLINE meetings work?

Meetings usually take place ONLINE. In this way I can support families from everywhere effectively and very successfully. This can include Parenting Support Sessions as well as Coaching Sessions with the child.

 

It is really amazing, how much can be achieved with onlne meetings. At first I couldn’t believe it myself. But even parents and children with little computer experience have come to use and appreciate it. Some of the possibilities and advantages are:

  • both parents can participate in the meeting from different places, e.g. from work and/or home
  • there are no travel times or petrol costs, i.e. it is environmentally better and easier to organise
  • less childcare is only needed for a 1 hour meeting
  • I can easily share information or videos with you

How does it work?

  1. you open you email and the zoom link that I have sent you
  2. you click on the link and follow the instructions
  3. with a little bit of patience the programme loads and then we can hear and see each other on the screen

The initial PHONE CALL is FREE. Click here to book your initial 20-minute appointment.
