Child Playing


Society tells us that toddlers are terrible, difficult and that we should ignore them but this doesn't feel right to you.

You want your child to actually play with their toys instead of dumping them around the house but you don't know how.

You find yourself justifying your parenting to other people, but you shouldn't have to.

You're exhausted and your toddler goes at 100mph. You wish they'd just sit and play every once in a while.

They have angry outbursts that seem to come from nowhere. It makes you feel lost and anxious and like you're failing.



Emma has supported hundreds of parents to navigate parenthood with ease and confidence.


She has a degree in primary education, over a decade of experience working with children and outstanding teacher award.

Loren, mum to A, said: "The changes in my parenting, my relationships, my confidence, trust in my ability, my mood are truly astonishing."

Emma will coach and support you throughout this and remember, she is a parent too - no subject is out of bounds and she creates a safe and open space in all her courses.

Like the sound of it? Great! Emma would love to have you on board. Find full course details below and follow the links to book.


Module One: P is for Perception and Connection​​

This first module is all about mindset. I'll teach you about what to expect when it comes to dealing with your toddler, so you can feel confident allowing them more freedom.

Module Two: L is for Learning from You

In module two you'll discover all there is to know about why toddlers behave in the way they do and what you can do to support them through probably the most vital phase of their development.

Module Three: A is for Ace Your Space

In three thorough lessons, I'll teach you how to set up you play and practical spaces in order to support your child's craving for independence.

Module Four: Y is for Yo-yoing Emotions

Module four aims to help you manage tantrums with ease and positivity, gently helping your child to process their emotions with your love and support.​


Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! I understand how tough times have been for many families over the last 18 months and I don't want anyone missing out because they are worried about money. Depending on which booking option you go for, you can spread the cost to as little as £62 per month. Choose what suits you best. If that still doesn't work for you though and you really want to do the course, please let me know, as I'm always happy to help where I can.

I don’t have a huge amount of time. Is it flexible?
Yep totally. All the content is self directed. You'll have access to each new module on a Friday morning. You choose when to listen in to the content and all the course notes will be there to download, so you won’t need to remember it all. Each content video lasts around 30-45 minutes (there are one or two longer ones) and you’ll have about 30-45 mins extra on top for completing additional tasks each week. Those that are taking the Signature or 1:1 options, you'll have 3 additional group Zoom calls with me across the 10 weeks, which last around 45 minutes. These are scheduled for 8pm on 10th March, 14th April and 12th May.

Can my partner join me?

Absolutely! In fact, I really encourage you to take the course with your partner, if you have one. Clients of mine that have done the course alone have benefitted hugely, but those with partners have found that it's brought them together and they're parenting with much more aligned values.


How much support do I get?

So much! No matter which booking option you choose, you'll have support available to you regularly through an exclusive Facebook group where one of my Your Independent Toddler mentors will be on hand to answer any Qs you might have. If you choose the Signature course option, you'll also have your own personal mentor that you can contact at any time during the course, as well as the 3 group Zoom calls hosted by me. And if you choose the 1:1 option I'll be your very own mentor, available to you continually for 10 full weeks!

I'm not sure now is the right time. Will you run the course again?
The course is usually run twice yearly. I don't have any firm dates for the next round yet, but if your toddler is already around 18 months of age, you'll want to join now so that you can learn and implement your new skills sooner rather than later. Remember, you get lifetime access so if you join now, you'll benefit from the course longer.

My child isn’t a toddler yet. Is it still for me?
Well it won’t be long and they’ll be toddling. Getting your head around what’s to come can only be a good thing! The great thing about the course is that you have lifetime access to the content, meaning you can’t revisit as your child grows and changes and you can apply everything you have learned to any subsequent children you may go on to have. I'm happy to accept parents of children from 10 months of age. Any younger and you'll benefit more if you wait until next time.

I feel like I’ll need some additional support. Do you offer that too?
Yep! If you need some accountability or you want to chat to me regularly throughout the course I'll happily accommodate that with the VIP 1:1 option. Click HERE to read more.


What if I can't keep up with the content?

I get it - it's difficult sometimes to fit everything in. I always really encourage my clients to keep up as much as possible. The more you can keep on top of the content, the more you'll benefit from it. You have lifetime access to the content, but I'm only available for the 10 week duration.


Do I have to do everything you suggest?

No way! I'm here to provide you with evidence-based information and practical solutions. If you like what you hear, go for it! Similarly, if my suggestions don't fit your values or lifestyle, you don't have to do that either. (Although I suspect that if you're here, you'll have fairly similar values to me anyway!)


Will I have to get rid of all the toys and books and replace them?

Absolutely not! When you work with me, you'll learn more about what suits your child's needs but I'll never tell you to get rid of anything if you don't want to.
