I am a psychologist (MA, member of Psychological Society of Ireland), experienced certified trainer specialising in life long learning and personal development. I facilitate parenting workshops, which promote the understanding of emotional experience of parenting. In the classroom, I utilise my expertise in working with groups, my knowledge of emotional dynamics and personal experience of parenting two young children. I am a parenting author, writing a blog: Balancing Parents (www.balancingparents.com) and contributing to: xpose.ie, herfamily.ie, Galway Advertiser. The aim of my work is to help parents become more confident in their role.
