Circle of Security
MAMA MATTERS TEXT _ EDIT
At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.
Circle of Security Parenting Program (COS-P) is an internationally renowned group coaching program that gives us the tools and insight into better understanding the needs that underlie our little ones' behaviours.
COS giv to strengthen our relationship with them, and to love the heck out of our imperfect, authentic & 'good-enough' parenting.
It is a group program run over 4, 6 or 8 weeks, based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
How does it work?
Each week we meet via Zoom to work through the chapter of Circle of Security together. The program is run through a combination of videos, exercises and group discussion.
We will then have a week to digest, practice and reflect. Each week we invite you to share your ‘Circle Stories’ because as you learn, once you see The Circle - you can’t stop seeing it in daily life with your little ones.
Please note that these sessions can’t be recorded to maintain the integrity of the group nature of the program. This is a guideline from Circle of Security International. If you know you may be away for one of the weeks, you can contact your facilitator to arrange a catch up session.
What do we learn?
Throughout this transformative program, you will:
Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs
Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
Enhance the development of your child's self esteem
Honour your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure
Who is it for?
Parents of children aged 0-5 years who would like to strengthen their relationship with their child and reflect on the ways in which they were parented.
If you have a history of a complex family dynamic, mental health challenges, or abuse or neglect - please consider that a face to face group may be more appropriate for you.
Please reach out if you would like to discuss whether the online version will be best for you. It is my duty of care to ensure that you have the best setting for you.
How much does it cost?
We have just closed our recent rounds - sorry! We will run another group later this year.

Frequently Asked Questions
HOW LONG DO SESSIONS GO FOR?
Sessions will typically go for about a 1 hour - some sessions are longer than others.
CAN MY PARTNER JOIN?
Absolutely - but they have to be all in, just as much as you are. It’s not appropriate for partners to be in and out whenever they can join - this affects the integrity of the group felt sense of safety. If your partner will be joining, please let me know in in the intake form after you sign up!
MY BABY IS LITTLE! IS IT STILL APPROPRIATE?
Yes! The Circle is happening from the minute you meet your baby. Some of the concepts will be more applicable as your child grows, but wowsie what an incredible start to your attachment relationship. Knowing The Circle from the start can be a gamechanger.
I WON'T HAVE CHILDCARE. CAN I STILL COME?
We are so used to working amidst the chaos of small people, and I want this course to be accessible for everyone. So of course, most of you will have your little babes around. You will just need to pop that mute button on when you need to and join in the discussions as much as you can!
CAN I DO THIS AS A SELF-PACED OPTION?
Unfortunately not. And the reason is that this is founded as a group program - Circle of Security International have already been quite flexible in allowing it to be online! This is the same reason that sessions can’t be recorded. The magic is in the reflections and group discussion.
I CAN'T MAKE THIS ROUND, WHEN WILL THE NEXT INTAKE BE?
All good, we will be back. Whilst we can’t guarantee when or in what format (especially with impending baby), rest assured we will make something happen later this year.
IS THERE A PAYMENT PLAN OPTION?
Absolutely - please email me if you would like the option to pay weekly.
