Our Coaches are here for you!
Changing how you see, changes how you react, which changes how your children react to you. Our coaches are experts at giving you new ways to see yourself, your boundaries, and your child(ren) that get you unstuck, bring out hidden strengths, and stop unwanted behaviors at the source.
Contact our coaches for private coaching, take their classes, read their blogs, follow them on social media.

Camilla Miller, Parent Coach
Camilla is the mother of two based in West Sussex U.K. and author of Keeping Your Cool Parenting blog. As a qualified primary school teacher, she didn’t think much about her parenting skills until her second child was born…then BAM! This child was more reactive, impulsive and threw epic tantrums. Camilla knew there had to be a way to raise kids that didn’t include constant struggles, naughty steps or reward charts, and she was right. When she discovered Language of Listening® her first thought was, “Why did no one tell me this before?!!”
Camilla’s passion is to support parents to really understand their child, especially the more challenging, reactive kids, and give parents the tools they need to transform family life. Camilla shares Language of Listening tools on her blog and and through her courses, workshops and Facebook Community. Connect with her on Facebook or on her website. She is also available for private or couples coaching & classes.
