The Parent & Teen Toolbox

Jun 29, 2021

As Mums, we very often feel that we have given all that we have to offer to parent our children - and to an extent, we lose our confidence and (dare I say it ) our own identity.


In this episode, I am chatting to Dan Reader - who knows only too well the inner turmoil that us mums are facing and how hard it is to break away from that table of being “Just a Mum”.


Dan shares with us his insights as to how women can grasp the nettle and be brave enough ( if it’s bravery they are looking for ) to find that inner resolve to re-invent themselves; whilst still being the best parent that they can be.


Truth bomb : When you take care of yourself and relight that fire - you become that person who has more to offer for yourself and those around you - so it’s a win-win.

More about Dan :
From Personal trainer of 8 years to behaviour change and self love coach for the past 2.

Having gone through my own rock bottom 4 years ago which left me officially homeless in £15,000 worth of debt and using drink and drugs to escape my emotions I recognised something HAD to change!

That change was me turning inward and learning to love all the parts of myself that I’d judged and shamed instead of looking for validation outside of myself.

Over the last few years I’ve invested in coaches and therapy for my own healing and 2 years ago I invested in a program to become a coach myself.


Lockdown and covid gave me the opportunity to close my personal training studio, sell all my equipment and move across the country with my girlfriend and really get clear on what it was I wanted to create in the world.


Self-love was what saved me and now my mission is helping others start giving themselves the love they crave first, so they never settle for any less than they deserve in relationships, health, and life.

* Three Questions to Ask Your Uncommunicative Child :

All too often parents say to me :

“My child won’t speak to me”
“I know something’s not quite right - but they won’t tell me what’s wrong.”

Well, I have a resource for you.

Download this FREE Resource : 📍

It will help you reconnect with your child quickly and easily; and in a way that will not drive them to their bedroom to avoid you!

If you are looking for support at a deeper level for your child, then please book a call with me. Invariably they might only need a couple of sessions. But if we can give our kids the tools to improve their emotional wellbeing NOW - then you’re more likely to alleviate the longer term damage to their mental health.
