Mother and a Child

Circle of Security Program

At times, all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.

The Circle of Security Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Mother and Baby

Self-Co Regulation Program

In this six-week parenting program participants will have opportunities to explore the brain science behind self and co-regulation.
