"I have known Natalie for a long time now and so I knew without a doubt that taking part in her Mindful Parenting Webinar would be amazing. Her passion and content has already provided me with breakthroughs and a shift in my perception of parenting on a deeper level. A deeper sense of calmness and certainty has come over me when I am interacting with my beautiful daughter, who is seven. It has empowered me as a mother and also as an educator of young people. I would like to thank her for making this available to everyone."

"My son was actually bullied in elementary school by a specific kid over and over. I was really desperate, I didn’t know how to handle it and get him to understand that it’s not his fault and he should make meanings and most probably the kid that was bullying him was the one suffering etc etc. It’s really easier to make an adult to understand and not to take bullying personal but it’s a whole other level of training to get a child to understand that!Thank you Natalie for making this happen ! I don’t know how else I could have saved my son from this very common yet detrimental situation."

"After every Mindful Parenting session I feel full of positive energy and the power to deal with the everyday challenges of family life. Even though I have not yet participated in many sessions with Natalie, I am already noticing how this is changing me for the better. I begun to be more aware of my thoughts and how they affect me, be more aware of my emotions and my behavior and this is helping me better understand both my self and my children and thus to better communicate with them. I have more peace of mind and this affects everyone at home. Through the sessions, I am learning, together with my children, to pause, to be mindful of and be grateful for the small everyday joys of life! We thank you Natalie."
