Tuning In With Meg And Tara February 2024

Respectful and connected family relationships

Our foundation course is the first step to greater connection, co-regulation and better communication in your family. We often find that participants have attended therapies, read books and listened to podcasts but the relationships, behaviours and patterns have remained the same.

We limit the number of participants so that each week you can bring your specific examples and challenges with your child/ren. We can unpack what didn’t go well, why and what to try next time.

There is no family “too bad”, or behaviour “too wild”. Yes, your family can benefit “if it is not that bad”. We have worked with families in all different places, stages and struggles. The group process is powerful, in both the experiences shared and in the diversity of experience of participants.

Regardless of the starting point we can support you to transform the relationships and behaviours in your family. This process is not only about learning new content, it is learning about you and your family and what needs to change for everyone in the family to feel supported, connected and respected.

Group calls on Zoom will be on Monday evenings 8pm on the following dates:
1. 26 February
2. 11 March
3. 25 March
4. 8 April
5. 22 April
6. 6  May

Pre-recorded videos and summary sheets are available. Messaging support by text and voice memos is available throughout the course, you can share questions, challenges and celebrations.
