Trailblazing Parenting

Tuesday 12 September until Tuesday 10 October 2023

Plus an optional bonus session on Tuesday 17 October.

(Replays also available)

As trailblazing parents, educators and extended family members, we recognise the deep importance of mental health… for us and our children.

We might be on board with an empathetic, calm approach… but it’s harder than it sounds.

We may face extra challenges of sleep deprivation! 

We might have a child who is highly sensitive or has additional needs (and even defies the conscious parenting books!).

We may be processing our own childhoods and don’t want to pass on our old ‘stuff’ to the next generation.

We want to create spaces where our child can be themselves and be supported in expressing any emotion safely…

In order to do this, we need space to be heard and supported too.

Techniques for when ‘just breathe’ doesn’t work

Throughout these workshops, we’ll explore:

  • How to use play and games to work with anxiety and big emotions (from babyhood to adulthood), including fear and anger
  • Techniques to release stress for adults, including dance, art, inner child work, trauma release, play and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as ‘tapping’ – we’ll look at advanced methods)
  • How to support our child in moving through trauma (including ‘hidden trauma’ – most of us have hidden trauma), and how we can build self-esteem
  • Sensory and laughter games for all ages, including how to find the ‘giggle point’
parent and child giggling
  • How to adapt methods for family members who are highly sensitive, gifted, neurodivergent and/or have additional needs, including ASD, ADHD, PDA and sensory processing difficulties (because many children just don’t fit the parenting books!)

You’ll also experience:

  • Fun meditation tools (including our housework dance party!) 
  • Tools for dealing with judgement from others 
  • How to use giggly games to work with fear, including separation anxiety and phobias (this can absolutely work for adults too)
  • How to safely de-escalate aggression using evidence-based techniques
  • Three common errors when working with anger and what we can do instead
  • Create win-wins and collaborate with Compassionate Communication
  • How to bring more laughter in our lives, including 10 secret ingredients to a good giggle

Working with you has changed my life!

I’ve come home to the more loving and playful me… now I’m spending so much less time yelling at my kids and so much more time actually playing with them and enjoying them!

…My relationship with my husband is so much better…

I’m amazed at all the changes. Even on the run up to Thanksgiving and Christmas, I felt relaxed for the first time ever.

Thank you, Emma! ❤️

I’ve been around many, many different events, but I’ve never experienced your ease, trust and humility and sheer magic. You rock!  🥰😘🎊🌈

In the national UK magazine, Juno:

“I found Emma from Love and Play Universe and I saw the myriad in which she could help me.

I have had one-to-one coaching sessions and group sessions with her remotely since May 2021, and my outlook on all things has shifted. I describe the changes as spiritual, loving and conscious.”

Emma soars into your life gently and then step by step walks with you through the scary stuff and empowers you to find your confidence and magic again, and surround your family with it.

Nicola, parent and educator, United Kingdom

You helped me to unravel and heal issues that have been holding me back in my relationships.

I’ve learned so much more self love and how to give myself time to replenish and recharge my soul. Now I have more energy and purpose every day.

We found so many simple tips and tricks, so I could turn around the way I see the drudgery of everyday life and to put the fun and joy back into my routine.

If I was to summarise, I’d say:

“Emma, I had all the ingredients, but you gave me the recipe and showed me how to bake the cake.”
