I have been deeply rewarded seeing positive transformations in families by teaching P.E.T. effective communication skills since 1978. My two sons are now parents, and I am witness to their natural use of P.E.T. skills in all their interactions with children and people.
My passion is to share these skills with others through these options:
1. Parent Effectiveness Training - for parents, grandparents, carers.
2. Be Your Best – personal empowerment skills for self, relationships, and the workplace.
3. Teacher Effectiveness Training – increases the quality of interactions between student and teacher with more teaching-learning time.
4. Instructor Training - I am a Master Trainer of P.E.T., B.Y.B., T.E.T. and Y.E.T. for ETIA Ltd.
In my teaching career I taught from early childhood to tertiary level focusing on Child Development and Communication Skills.
I lived in Beijing for seven years and conducted P.E.T. and B.Y.B. courses for expatriates as well as training expatriates to become P.E.T. instructors. I have written for parenting magazines in Beijing and Australia and blog for my website The Parent Within (theparentwithin.com). Whilst in Beijing I co-authored a book with P.E.T. Instructors I had trained, to help expatriate children cope with the changes in their life.
In the last couple of years I have taken on the position of President of ETIA Ltd.
Children, parenting, and effective communications continues to be my passion as I share these courses both online (Australia and NZ) or face to face in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast as well as coaching parents individually.
