Do you ever yearn for a conscious community to support you through your parenting? Do you want to stay calm and patient… but find yourself triggered or overwhelmed and unable to put your best intentions into practice, in the moment? Do you want a more playful, fun and fulfilling relationship with your kids?
When I first had kids (11years ago, now!), I felt very alone having recently moved to a new country. I felt anxious, inadequate and overwhelmed. I was filled with a desire to do my best for this tiny, innocent, beautiful new soul that somehow life had put in my care. I wanted to help her (I just had one kid at that stage) to reach her full potential and above all to grow up happy, resilient and with buckets of self-love. Not only that but I deeply longed for our relationship to be healthy, close and connected. But I was scared of f’ing up.
Those first years were super hard… and new challenges kept (and keep) coming as my kids grew older but I got lucky. I found a local Hand in Hand Parenting Support group and that became a lifeline for me. I attended this group for a couple of years, before deciding to become a parenting coach, myself. With it, I felt I found a road map which helped me navigate pretty much ANY challenge that came up. It gave me confidence, empowered me and helped me relax into trusting my own instincts.
These groups also provided me the space and support to work on my own issues. I was determined not to pass those on or act them out on my kids. I’m still on this journey, for sure, but I can say I am now able to stay present and hold space for my kids, even if they are in the midst of a messy, raging (even sometimes aggressive) meltdown. I’ve learnt to be the spaciousness in which I can welcome whatever temporary storm rages through them, until it has passed. And – better still (though this has not been easy for me) – I’ve learnt the art and skill of parenting playfully. And I have found that added humour, goofiness and role-play can help turn around so many tricky situations!
After feeling my family benefitted so much from the support I received, I wanted to train to be an instructor to a) go even deeper in my own learning journey; and b) pay it forward. I am now in my fourth year of teaching this approach – first in my local community and now, internationally, online (amazing, really). Over the years, I've seen these tools work to massively help with or totally resolve: – sleep issues, – aggression, – separation anxiety, – sibling rivalry and – resistance and ‘back talk' … to name a few. I am excited to be able to share this approach with with YOU. Whether you are new to gentle parenting or have read all the books and now want help converting the theory into practice, this course could be the next logical step and the best way to get you the support you need to be the parent you want to be.

Here’s what some past participants have said about my courses:
📌“This course is ‘life changing'!! “A HUGE recommendation for Hannah's courses. Hannah Gauri Ma is an amazing teacher – warm, kind, and clear with an incredible wealth of knowledge. I'm so excited that more lucky parents get to experience working with her.”
📌”Just so good. It’s the real deal. Understanding why your children behave the way they do coupled with getting the support you need as a parent is critical to breaking the cycle of poor/uninformed parenting. It's not easy but if ever there was a parenting manual… then I would say HiH is definitely the place to start.”
📌“Hannah is very inspiring, loving and supportive instructor. She is creating a very save place where you can express yourself. It really has made a world of difference to me. Beautiful mum with big heart and loving soul. The best example! Many thanks for the course. I highly recommend to every parent.”
