Becoming Us Seed Planting workshop – With Elly Taylor

Discover something that can make a lifetime of difference for families.

Saturday Morning 26th October 2019 –  9.00am - 11.00am


If you work with expecting or new parents in ANY professional capacity, you can learn how to plant powerful seeds that support mothers, fathers and partners to cope as individuals, pull together as a couple, and thrive as a family.

In this two hour interactive seminar you’ll discover:

• That while we call it the “transition into parenthood”, there are actually more than eight (8!!!) major life transitions for mothers, fathers and families. You’ll learn what these transitions are and how you can use them in your role.

• How the research and evidence-based Becoming Us approach can support you to work with individuals, couples or groups in a whole-family way to navigate the different transitions of parenthood, reduce risks for PMH issues and relationship problems and support families to thrive.

• New brain research into learning and relationships that can make all the difference in your work.

• How to design and plant a 3 part ‘Becoming Us’ seed for parents to grow their love and you can see just how powerful this tool can be!

And the best bit? Seed planting only takes a moment for you – but can make a lifetime of difference for families. Elly would love to show you how.
