Hello and Welcome!
The journey of my life took a new direction when my children were just 6 and 4, it was called a divorce.
I had to adapt my life and how I parented my children.
I had no experience of growing up in a broken family and as a result, I felt lost, alone and without support. The hardest part for me was then living with my children week on, and week off. I made a decision that my children would be effected as little as possible and I would do whatever it took to make it so. This was a major growth time for me personally, and never, have I dug deeper.
As a result of having a week away from my children, I took a Counselling course, as it was something I was always interested in, but just never had the time for. I passed two years later with Honours.
I volunteered in my community as a facilitator of two parenting groups. Each group met weekly and I enjoyed seeing the growth of my clients over 6 years.
At the encouragement from my children, now adults, I endeavored to write a book for parents, outlining how I managed as a single parent to raise two amazing, confident, empowered, authentic, caring individuals and wanted to get the message out to others, that no matter your family denomination, your own upbringing, everyone can be an amazing parent. I also wanted to write the book intimately, from one parent to another, without letters beside my name.
My book "Parent to Parent" was published in the fall of 2017, was on my publishers 'Best Seller' list and appeared in The New York Book of Reviews Magazine in April 2018.
In the fall of 2018, I again returned to my studies and received my certificates in Child Psychology and Bullying Awareness, both with Distinction. I am now a member of the
International Alliance of Holistic Therapists.
My own children are the real reason I am here, and doing what I love. When we raise our children, we never really know what teachings get though to them until they are adults. I have reached that time with my kids and have received my report card as a single parent.
It was a great report.....
Now, I want nothing more than to help and coach parents going through a difficult time, a life changing time, and work together so you can receive your.... Parent Certificate....with Distinction....

"Janine's compassion for parents, youth and children in challenging circumstances is strong and unwavering. Her encouragement, modelling and respect have given the parents she works with the forum to connect with each other, to find empowerment within themselves, and to find renewed hope for their relationship with their families and their children. I have become inspired by the strength of her beliefs and her values, and her devotion and compassion for children and families no matter what their history, current situation or family constellation."
