My name is Zena and for the last 20 years I've been honing my parenting powers in the most important, rewarding and challenging job I have ever done - raising my children to become happy, self-motivated, successful young adults.
The world is evolving so rapidly and our children are under unprecedented levels of pressure through the internet and social media, and unfortunately through an under-funded school system that is failing to keep up with the pace of change and failing to best support our children, especially those with SEN.
sadly many of our young people are experiencing high levels of stress and anxiety
I am passionate about supporting parents (mums, dads, grandparents, aunties, carers...) as they navigate this challenging parenting landscape.
Are you worried that...
- your son or daughter is disengaging more and more with family, friends and the things they used to like to do.
- you find yourself frequently battling with them to come off consoles
- they spend too much time alone in their room.
- you don't know how to reach out to them and help them start re-engaging and learning again
Are your seedlings thriving or just surviving?
All plants need full sunshine, don't they?

Professionally I have worked in a variety of settings - supporting young people to help them regain self-esteem, self-confidence, motivation and overcome anxiety, to help guide them to discover their passion and purpose.
Personally I home educated our three children throughout their 'school years' and for the last 11 years, I have supported and mentored hundreds of other families in their home education journeys.
As parents we all want the best for our children, for them to be happy and to thrive.
But sometimes parenting is hard.
There are times we see our children struggling, but don't quite know how to help them, how to reach out to them - sometimes we just need a little bit of help and support to get back on track.
Whatever challenges you are currently experiencing with your child, whether they are at school or whether you are considering home educating them yourself, I can help you.
I look forward to working with you, to help you hone your Parenting Powers and get you and your family back on track.
