I am available for 1:1 parenting coaching in person or over the internet. Many parents appreciate the opportunity to share their concerns in a private setting. I am non-judgemental and open minded. By listening carefully I can help uncover the limiting beliefs that are keeping you from experiencing the family life you desire.

I regularly run  workshops based on the philosophy that has changed my life so much. In a group we explore many techniques that can easily be used to bring the joy back into your parenting journey. Amongst other things you will: uncover your personal limiting beliefs; explore how you value yourself and your role; learn the power of your thoughts and how to change them and design new helpful goals to help you move toward the life you want.

Previous workshop attendees have enjoyed the camaradarie amongst the parents. Hearing other’s experiences has reminded them that they are not alone. Please see the testimonials section for more encouragement.

Workshops are either held over a full day or over several sessions depending on your requirements and location. Please get in touch to discuss holding a workshop near you. I am based in the North West of England but will travel if necessary (especially to exotic locations).

I offer staff training sessions for those working with children and families. We cover the material I teach in the parenting coaching workshops and explore how we put this into practice in a nursery or school setting. Staff leave with lots of practical ways of increasing their own happiness and are also equipped to encourage the parents they work with to be happier. Attendees report improved working relationships with parents following a staff training session.

I am happy to address groups on the subject of parenting. If you would like me to address a group of parents, expectant parents, grandparents or those dealing with children or parents, such as nursery or school staff, please get in touch.

Reviews for the book (from Amazon)

“I can’t praise this book enough. After feeling like I’d hit an all-time personal low, this book gave me real hope that I was going to be not just ok but because I was the creator of my own happiness it gave me real focus to put being happy into practice. Jo gives great parenting advice but more importantly great life advice. I’m looking at everything differently and I can honestly say I’m much happier moment to moment and after just a couple of weeks I’m seeing a difference in my family too. Thanks Jo.” 5 out of 5 stars.

“I have read many parenting books over the years; this book was different as I found it to be an encouragement, rather than a reminder of all the things I do wrong! A good book to read cover-to-cover, or to dip in and out of as I have time. Thank you Mrs. Carter for sharing your wisdom.” 5 out of 5 stars. Lynn Seddon, 4 November 2017

“A new found peace and joy from reading this book. I love this book. I have 6 children. My oldest is 23 , youngest 3. I’ve read a lot of parenting books in my time as a mother. Wish I had read this book years ago. Simple yet so true. Has helped me to find more Joy in my life. 5 out of 5 stars. Joanna, 22 March 2018

“My husband and I love this book. With honest and relatable insights into her parenting journey, Jo has addressed many of my own mummy doubts and insecurities. Very well written, with lots of excellent advice.” 5 out of 5 stars. Rachel, 4 November 2017

“A guide for helping you think your way towards joyful parenting when the littlies get you down – it happens to us all at times. An inspiring book that’s warm and encouraging, just right for dipping into whenever you need a lift.” 5 out of 5 stars. Ross Mountney, 20 March 2018

“Jo gives an honest reflection of her own journey as a parent and offers insights and advice on the best ways to enjoy parenting. Most parenting books always seem to give tips (usually unreachable), which just makes me feel feel awful and guilty when I can’t achieve them! That is definitely not the case with this book. Jo gives an honest reflection of her own journey as a parent and offers insights and advice on the best ways to enjoy parenting, rather than just ‘getting through it’. A pleasure to read and incredibly helpful.” 5 out of 5 stars. Katy Thomas, 9 March 2018
