Parenting Support

Whether you are new to parenting or a seasoned professional, there are always those little questions and sometimes even the not so little questions that you just want to run by someone and get some guidance with. Wouldn’t it be lovely to know you had a source of professional advice that was dedicated to helping you succeed and be the parent you want to be?

I offer individualised support visits to help you as and when you need. These are offered with a down to earth, non-judgemental and common sense approach.

For example these visits can

  • Provide you with time to discover what is important to you, as a person and a parent
  • Help you develop coping strategies and deal with the sometimes overwhelming responsibilities and emotions
  • Work through worries, concerns or practical issues,
  • Answer questions by relating research, experience and parenting information to your specific family and situation (no more “they say” from books that do not know you and your family)
  • Encouraging and support you as you develop new skills as a parent,
  • Look at ways to protect/build your self esteem & confidence and
  • Prevent or work through postpartum depression, anxiety and mood disorders.

What Our Clients Say

'Joanne's Infant Massage Class was an incredibly rewarding experience for me and my son, and even better, it led us to Joanne! She has given me valuable advice on breast feeding, my son's weight gain, and introducing solid foods. Joanne really understands the kind of support that moms need; she is non-judgmental and completely supportive. I'm really not sure who I would've talked to about all of these questions if I hadn't met Joanne, and I'm so grateful that I took her class!'
