A parenting course like no other.
(Evening Course)

Circle of Security

Circle of Security is a parenting course like no other. Research tells us that children are born longing for connection and in this 6 week series we explore the needs that underlie our children’s challenging behaviour. Tantrums and areas of conflict are transformed into opportunities to build emotional security and self esteem.

About Circle of Security
Based on 50 years of research into the way Attachment Theory impacts family dynamics, this course reveals that every child is born longing for attachment to their caregiver and what can appear to be negative behaviour often has it’s roots in a child’s desire to connect with their parent. Looking at ways we can ‘be with’ our child helps diffuse tantrums and temper outbursts. When our day to day relationships sometimes get a little fractured, we learn how to repair and maintain them to make a stronger emotional bond.

This dvd based course creates a safe space to review how wider family dynamics  affect our children. It enables us to consider different ways of parenting through teaching and group discussions with other parents.

I'm now recognising the emotional needs of my children, not just trying to cheer them up


I'm more reflective and try to understand situations from my child's viewpoint before acting


I'm more observant of our children's behaviour – reasons behind it – and having more success in managing my own impulsiveness

Parent on the course

We are more aware of our own and our children's feelings. We have more confidence as a couple in how to address challenges


I deal with meltdown situations differently. I try to be with them instead of leaving to deal with their own feelings
