Making changes doesn’t have to be hard. Our programs teach us how to be authentic with ourselves and others.

1. Parenting Program P.E.T.

It’s rare to find a parent these days who isn’t feeling stressed and tired from juggling life’s demands. To benefit from P.E.T. you just need the desire to learn how to build warmer closer relationships with your children that will stand the test of teenagehood and beyond. P.E.T. is just the right balance of learning powerful and practical communication skills and a philosophy that will support you in creating harmony in your home.

Parents graduate from their training feeling calmer more confident and competent to handle their parenting and lifestyle challenges.

2. Instructor Training:

Becoming a BYB or P.E.T. instructor is one of the most rewarding things I have done. If you want to become a Master Communicator, this is a great way to do it. I offer training in a variety of ways to allow flexibility to suit our busy lives. Please call to discuss. Be Your Best Program – a personal empowerment program for everyone:

3. Be Your Best

A program just for you with an emphasis on taking more control of your life, becoming more assertive, and getting more of your personal needs met! A great program for anyone who wants to be more effective and highly recommended for parents also.

“I discovered ways to find peaceful resolutions to conflicts and how to break certain patterns within my life. I feel more skilled in how to maintain deep personal relationships through honest and authentic communication.”
Kim Victoria, Dandenong Ranges.

4. Instructor Refreshers:

An important way for instructors to stay current and connected or to get personalised coaching to re-entering teaching. These can be 1:1 or in a small group, in person, or via Zoom.

Whatever your needs, I look forward to talking with you and exploring the possibilities these wonderful programs offer.

Warm regards, Judith

Cleaning up our mistakes with our children

Cleaning up our mistakes with our children

Written by Judith Richardson

Even after you have mastered the P.E.T. skills you will always have times when you act or speak in reaction. However what matters more to your children than the fact that you have spoken in anger or acted inappropriately is the fact that you take responsibility for your actions and apologise.
