West Sussex

Camilla Miller is based in south West Sussex (Portsmouth to Hove) and offers workshops, courses and one to one consultations based on The Parent Practice methodologies. www.keepingyourcoolparenting.com

Camilla and her course were recommended by a colleague at work….  I have learnt that my daughter's behaviour was a reaction to how she was being treated, and all the emotions behind it.  With Camilla 's experience and guidance I learnt how to be connected with my daughter and encourage her in a positive way. Within two weeks I noticed the changes and how good she was responding to all techniques learnt.  I am so delighted to see my daughter shining and willing to help without being asked to.  Our course lasted five weeks, which went so quick and  I could not be more grateful to Camilla and her help.  Carol  from Worthing - mum of a nearly 5 y/o and 1 y/o girls.
