Shelley lives in Adelaide, Australia with her husband and three beautiful children. She is a certified Hand in Hand Parenting by Connection instructor and absolutely loves working with families. She also holds a bachelor degree in physiotherapy and is a certified CranioSacral Therapist. She has worked in many areas but now specialises in working with children and families, mainly one to one in the therapy rooms but also enjoys running small parenting workshops.
Shelley came across Hand in Hand Parenting when searching for a better way to help with the intricacies of raising children. The usual parenting models for ‘teaching behaviour’ just weren’t working and everyone needed some tools to help with difficult behaviours and assist with connection. It just made sense! The tools taught in the six-week starter class are so incredible that family life changed almost immediately.
She decided to become an instructor to gain a deeper understanding of the tools and to help support the families she works with. Shelley is passionate about connecting with other parents to share the wonderful tools and strategies she has learnt.
All human beings have the desire to be seen, heard, held, and loved, and it can start with the way we raise our children. Her dream is to see more parents have access to these tools and deepen their connection with their children.
“I love Hand in Hand Parenting. The tools really have changed our lives. There is more connection, joy, love, and laughter in our house. It’s amazing” Shelley Clarke
