I’m Belinda Connelly and I am passionate about helping mothers to see beneath their child’s ‘button pushing’ behaviours so they can learn to respond based on the underlying emotional needs.
As an early childhood teacher (B.Ed) I have worked with children from birth through to six years in many different roles over the last 20 years, and this experience, along with my own motherhood journey, has laid the foundations of my work and my calling to support more mothers around the world on their conscious parenting journeys.
My work is grounded in a blend of Aware Parenting principles, current child development theory plus a passion for spreading emotional awareness and empowering parents on their own inner healing journeys.
Choosing to parent consciously is a daily practise, not only parenting your child but also re-parenting yourself. This is often the most unexpected and challenging part as you break old patterns, beliefs and rewire neural pathways, building in new responses and understandings.
It’s not an easy path. But with support it becomes so much easier and over time, the little steps you’re taking will build momentum and become your new way of being. Increase your understanding of child behaviour, build your conscious parenting toolkit and learn the tools for your own healing journey too.
I’m so passionate about sharing this with you!
