A note from our instructor Cornelia Dahinten:

Hello! My name is Cornelia Dahinten and I am originally from Germany. I am a certified Hypnotherapist with a special interest in brain development and neuroscience. I am also a mother of three children, aged 5, 7 and 9.

I have developed a conscious parenting training class for parents because I felt that parenting would be so much easier if we all had the relevant information on hand. Every day, I meet parents who are confused and pressured by baby training programs that do not seem to fit their family and/or baby.

Also, baby trainers often seem to disregard the latest discoveries in neuroscience. Hence, stopping us from reaching long-term visions we have for our children. I want to help parents to find out what they want for their children in the long run and what do they want for themselves. I then help the family to combine the two.

Not every child is the same and not every parent is the same. I will help you to find your own personal way of parenting. Giving you strong tools to reach your vision. There is no right or wrong in the way we parent, but there are plenty of impulses that we can set, that are either positive or negative.

Parents come with their own baggage and history, knowledge and reflection help us to avoid to hand the very same baggage over to our children.

Parents' Comments about the Class

The class teaches you to parent in a very positive way and encourages you to find your own personal style of parenting. Really teaches you to think through strategies for parenting which I found very useful. The course also helped me to really see how I have been moulded by my parent's parenting style, which was a real eye opener.

I especially liked the goal-setting at the first class. I have learned specific useful strategies. I found the Discipline and Sibling Rivalry classes the most compelling and interesting and enriching.
