Kelly van Rooyen

Hand in Hand Certified Instructor

“Hand in Hand Parenting has given me a way to really connect, not only to my children, but also to myself in a way that I never have before.”

Kelly lives in Mpumalanga, South Africa and is a mom to twin boys. Her background is in Montessori teaching, where she got great exposure to positive discipline techniques, and practiced them with the children in her care.  After the early birth of her children, and their extended hospital stay, she found the emotional load of a positive parenting approach, with little emotional support for herself difficult to manage, and suffered from anxiety and depression.

Hand in Hand Parenting has taught her the importance of support for parents – but also the lack of it for most people.  She believes parents who are supported and guided to understand themselves – their strengths and challenges – are parents who can show up for their children during their most challenging moments with warmth and confidence.  

Kelly is passionate about helping parents understand the emotions beneath their children’s behaviour, and how they can partner with their child to create a connected home, filled with fun and laughter.
