Her work is focused on supporting parents in connecting with their own inner calm and wisdom and enjoying harmonious and empowering relationships with their children. She is the author of the book "Joyful Parenting: The Five Skills to take your family from Conflict to Connection."
The course reminded me the joyfulness and love within me and the tools helped me to tap into that. Freya’s Skills for joyful parenting encouraged me to leave my pre-conditioned thinking at the door and open my heart to joyful parenting….who knew! Her ideas were revolutionary to me, every parent should read this transformative book.
My children love the game “Kissy Cow” that was born from the time spent playing “their” games for 30min every night (Skill 5:Playtime). When asked by the teacher at school “How does Mummy make you laugh?” They replied “Playing Kissy Cow”
Really enjoyed the topic “Question your thinking” and the turn around, most of “”my” issues melted away when I started using this tool regularly. — Trish
The information and processes are really so very helpful and I can honestly say they have really changed and shifted lots of stuff for us! I often call in Freya’s energy in our family dealings and it has been a great help. — Laury
Freya taught me a simple way to not make my family responsible for my sadness or happiness. I have a better understanding of my roles for me and for my family and the teenage years have rolled on much happier! Valuable skills for not just the Mother/Child relationship, but for all relationships, including the one with my Husband! — Julia
