“Pregnancy is when the body teaches you how to care for another human being by making you slow down. It is real preparation for the early days and months of parenting."
The Holistic Parent

I advocate parenting holistically. That means taking a human-centred approach and working outwards. We are not just a parent or parent-to-be. There is so much more to us but sometimes we lose sight of that, particularly when we become a parent.

When the expectations of 21st century living feel very heavy, the ‘perfection’ of pregnancy and parenthood are filtered and glamourised through our connections via social media, tv and other mass media channels. Added to that, the demands and rigours of childrearing seem to shout louder than the voice of our own needs, so we really need to remember self-care and self-belief. What does that mean for YOU, I hear you ask. How can my work aid you in your new parenting journey?

The 4Ps Programme is about preparation and planning for parenthood in pregnancy. This programme is designed to ensure through the provision of pragmatic and practical support and mentoring, I support you as you hold on to your voice and sense of self. That is probably one of the most important things we will do as we work together. Acknowledgement of your needs and learning to appreciate how important you-being-you will be for your child as they grow and learn is also crucial.

It’s okay not to feel okay, it’s okay to feel unsure, it’s okay to feel vulnerable and it’s okay to ask for help and support. Remember that!

For YOU, right now, my soon-to-be new parent client(s) that means lots of compassionate care, support and commitment from me.

I promise to INSPIRE you to feel CONFIDENT as you bring your new baby or babies, home.

Through our work together you will become SECURE and SELF-ASSURED, in the knowledge that you already possess most of the skills and traits you need, to parent HOLISTICALLY. That is, psychologically (head) and emotionally (heart), in a HEALTHY and developmentally appropriate way.

I will encourage YOU as new parents, to feel ASSURED if there are skills you need to learn, you have the WISDOM and APTITUDE to seek out that learning and embrace it. You never have to feel ‘less than’ or ‘lacking’, for not having the insight already. Does that make sense? Does it resonate with you? If so, it’s time to call me.

Pregnancy Case Study

Names:     Alex* & Molly*


Alex’s partner Molly was expecting. They were both happy about the news and the pregnancy was planned but Alex became concerned about the reality of becoming a parent. His own personal experience and childhood were difficult, and Alex was worried about repeating a family cycle.


This was an online experience for us all, as they came to The Holistic Parent during the Covid pandemic. It began with the FREE Consultation Call during which we determined that the PPPP would benefit Alex. The PPPP’s 3-session format worked well for Alex. In the first session we began by carrying out some very practical, pragmatic planning. This included acknowledging Alex’s main areas of concern and highlighting these for consideration. Next we looked at the practical measures possible, around how we would approach the work. We discussed a realistic timeline, and the likely number of sessions needed to find clarity, i.e. 3, 6, or 9.


Alex put in a lot of work during our sessions. We had six together in total, all in the  1-2-1 Zoom format. The methods we used were practical, easy to use and followed a logical and organic structure.

Follow Up: 

Alex and his partner Molly welcomed their son into the world, with Alex feeling confident and excited to become the parent he has always dreamed of.


For Alex, knowing he was going to be responsible for the upbringing of a child, was the stimulus he needed to help himself learn more, reconnect with his own abilities and to grow. The lesson here is that every day is a learning day.
