COURSES TO CREATE A CALMER, HAPPIER HOME.

Want to know more?

Register your email below for an invite to one of our informal introductory sessions in the run up to one of our courses. 

Thanks - we will be in touch shortly!

Over the course of six, weekly sessions, parents and carers will cover a broad range of topics designed to equip them with the relevant skills, confidence and understanding to support their personal wellbeing as well as their child's. 

 

Combining an understanding of the 'why', with practical discussions around compromise, setting boundaries and the hot topics of the day, from anxiety to gaming - our courses will leave you with a calmer, happier home and feeling truly supported as a parent.   

 

We provide the tools needed to nurture and future-proof connections with your child and family dynamics. We believe that significant milestones and transitions such as moving house, evolving family lineups or simply going to 'big school', can be just as challenging and daunting to parents as it is for young people.  

Taking place in a supportive, small-group environment, the sessions will utilise Tom and Rebecca's extensive knowledge of facilitation and delivery to be an engaging and interactive experience. We will encourage you to try things out, break cycles, listen to each other and hopefully enjoy a few laughs along the way.

 

Some of the topics covered include:​

  • The impact of the developing brain on behaviours, emotional regulation and peer relationships.

  • The power of active listening in supporting your child’s emotional development – to create the strong connections and communication channels before the more challenging older years.

  • Understanding the underlying emotional basis for children’s behaviour, allowing you to support your child in developing strong emotional awareness and regulation: the foundations for making healthy future choices about actions and relationships.

  • Understanding the origins and manifestations of stress & anxiety to support positive mental health & wellbeing.

  • An introduction to coping strategies to aid emotional regulation and positive mental health.

  • Building & maintaining a deep connection with your children.

  • Punishment vs. Discipline? 

“It's not overstating matters to say that ChildMIND sessions have been revolutionary for our home life..."

"We have come away with a far more nuanced understanding of ourselves and our children, which has translated into a calmer and happier home."

~ Course attendees

Originally designed in response to feedback from parents whose children were building towards transitioning into secondary school, the course is purposefully kept open to all comers. This is due to the fact that many of the topics we cover apply to parents and children - no matter what their age.

 

From a professional perspective, the earlier parents receive the support to embed positive practices and approaches into their lives, the better! Prevention is nearly always better than a cure.

 

  • Length: Six, 75 minute sessions, one evening a week. Includes an optional 30 minute 1:1 session with one of the team.

  • Where: Online meets.

  • Cost: £180 and 50% off for a partner in the same household. Bursary places and paying in chunks can be arranged so please talk to us and we can make something work!

  • Who: Come as a couple, come solo, bring your cat...we're pretty relaxed!

This powerful and thought-provoking course has been co-designed by MINDmatter's Tom Beetham, and Rebecca Jones. More about Tom can be found under the 'Who' section of this website.

 

Rebecca currently balances her work as a Wellbeing Mentor & Lead at a Sixth Form multi-academy trust, with an insatiable thirst for learning.
