Courses and workshops

For parents and carers 

Are you looking for parental training to help your children become calmer and happier? Would you like to enjoy a more peaceful and fulfilling home life, with better communication and engagement as a family? 
The Parent Practice runs a wide variety of accredited parenting training programmes and workshops to help make this a reality for your family.

Why should I take a parenting coaching course?

The idea of training for parents can seem strange at first – many people assume that good parenting skills should come naturally. But recently there have been so many developments in our understanding of how the human mind works. Applying this knowledge to parenting can make a world of difference.

To give you an idea of the positive difference our parenting skills training can make to you and your children, we offer a free taster session for some of our longer courses (marked with an orange sticker below). You’re most welcome to try them out for free – just select the 'Taster' option on the booking form.

Have a browse through our courses and workshops pages below. If your workshop of choice is not showing as currently running, please click on the 'Register Interest' button and we’ll keep you informed as to when it will be running next.
