Geraldine Crisp


I am a wellbeing and relationship educator, qualified in the area of Social Science and Management with over 30 years’ experience. I believe that family and home life is the base line from which we conduct our other activities and interests. When our home life is safe and caring and based on integrity and respect we have more capacity to give the best version of ourselves to our daily activities. The Thomas Gordon communication model offers the necessary skills and strategies to create a lifestyle of open communication, respect and emotional wellbeing. I would love to share with you some of the parenting strategies and work of Thomas Gordon, please contact me for a one-to-one information session, to attend a parenting group or to participate in my online book group.
