About Joss Goulden

“Let’s raise kids who won’t have to recover from their childhood” - Pam Leo.

Joss Goulden, Parenting Coach and Mentor.

I am an Aware Parenting instructor certified with the Aware Parenting Institute and have been practising Aware Parenting for 16 years. I am the mother of 2 children, aged 18 and 16. 

I am also passionate about Homeschooling and Natural Learning. I have homeschooled my 2 children and I have been supporting families with Homeschooling and Natural Learning for 18 years. 
I am so dedicated to sharing this beautiful approach with parents.
I believe that Aware Parenting is THE solution for so many of the challenges facing the world.

My Vision

Never has there been a more important time than now to address the growing problems of disconnection, aggression and oppression of children. There are increasing numbers of children with psychiatric diagnoses and behaviour “problems” and “disorders”. More and more children are experiencing depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide, domestic violence, violence to each other and to our planet. Parents desperately need more support so they can raise emotionally healthy children who grow up to be strong resilient adults, who are then able to bring urgent change for the world and build peace and health for future generations.

I believe that it is crucial to provide parents with the support, knowledge and tools, based on strong scientific research, to raise children who are psychologically well, who are connected to their authentic selves, loving, and cooperative, whilst also supporting parents to become unstressed and unhurt themselves. If we want competent, compassionate, non-violent children, they need to be parented with love, trust and respect and they need our support to heal from stress and trauma so they don't have the burden of carrying that pain around with them.

My Qualifications

I have a Bsc. in Psychology and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Communication Science. I have also completed several courses on Counselling, Narrative Therapy, Loss and Bereavement Counselling, the Hidden Power of Emotions,  Attachment-based Case Formulation & Intervention and Cultural Awareness and Mental Health Support for Indigenous People.

I have 26 years experience of providing support and therapy to adults with communication difficulties and their families to maximize their connections and relationships with their families, friends and communities.

I have completed several of Marion Rose’s (Level 2 Aware Parenting Instructor) training courses including Aware Parenting Workshops, Loving Being a Mother, Living Aware Parenting and Inner Loving Presence Process.
