“The Circle of Security is circling the globe as an intervention to help parents raise their children with love, warmth and emotional intelligence.” ~ Dr. Dan Siegel, Neuropsychiatrist and co-author of ‘The Whole Brain Child’ and ‘Parenting from the Inside Out.

The Circle of Security© is a relationship based parenting program designed to boost your confidence as a new parent and help your growing child thrive and flourish!

The tools and practices you learn in this inspiring 6 week program will enhance attachment security between parents and children. You'll not only develop a deeper understanding of your child but also yourself as a parent all within a supportive group learning environment.

The Circle of Security© Parenting Program is based on over 50 years of Child Attachment theory. It's right for you if you would like to;

Develop a healthy secure attachment bond with your child

Learn to recognise and respond appropriately to childs emotional needs

Help your child develop emotional resilience

Understand and develop your child’s needs for both closeness and autonomy

Improve your childs emotional regulation

Respond Mindfully to parenting challenges such as meltdowns, acting out and toddler tantrums.

By the end of this 6 week program you will be better equipped to identify your children's emotional needs and respond to their behaviours in ways which result in greater resilience, fewer behavioural difficulties, better relationships with family and friends, and support improved self esteem. Doing the Circle Of Security Parenting training will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to successfully parent your children from infancy through to adolescence and adulthood.
