Testimonials


I was struggling with parenting my 9 year old son and 6 year old daughter particularly around having firm boundaries and being consistent. I was talking to a friend of mine and saying I need a parenting coach and she mentioned Joss and aware parenting. I had never heard of aware parenting and looked it up. It immediately resonated with me so I got in touch with Joss.

In only a short time Joss was able to explain to me very clearly the principles of aware parenting and how they work. She listened with compassion as I told her the struggles I have been experiencing and gave me some really good practical tips which when I put them into practice really worked. I actually thought I would need to see Joss for a long time as I was feeling quite pessimistic about things changing at the start, but I was surprised that just by adding some new techniques from aware parenting how effective it was.

My partner was a little sceptical at first as he thought it was about permissive parenting but he soon realised he was wrong. He saw how the changes we both made improved things and he really started to understand the way it works.

It was clear to me that Joss is really passionate about what she does and I felt very supported by her throughout my parenting challenges.

Thank you Joss🙏

I find myself truly blessed with having Joss’s support in my life.

Her gentle, calm, loving and tender presence is like a warm light shining on me in our sessions.

I feel safe with Joss, to explore my inner worlds and I really love how she holds the space for me and how she gently and subtly guides me in connecting to my feelings and needs, and in expressing them.

I also love learning from her and her experiences.

My heart feels warm and loving when I think of Joss, and my life is definitely more valuable because of having met her, and knowing that she is here for me too.

I wish you would live close by.

"I have been blessed to have witnessed Joss interact with her kids from an AwP perspective for over a decade now. She is one of the most dedicated and patient parents I know. Her children are living proof that this model of child rearing is nothing short of miraculous.

Joss has a graceful way of explaining and demonstrating AwP principles so that they can be implemented without any confusion.

She also has a gift of playfulness which has left us both in fits of laughter many times - a priceless thing to have passed on to her kids. She continues to inspire me on my AWP journey on a weekly basis."

"I have known Joss since 2006 and am in awe of what she brings to the world as an Aware Parenting Instructor. Her profound knowledge, wisdom and experience of Aware Parenting shine out in every interaction she has with parents, whether that's in Zoom calls or written responses in our free Facebook group. I've seen the relief on parents' faces and the drop in their shoulders as she shares her experiences with her children and the deep trust she has in Aware Parenting and the parent-child relationship through deeply living this approach over the past 15 years. I highly, broadly and widely recommend working with her.
