Jill Hannam – Empowered Parenting

Jill’s work around ‘Empowered Parenting’ ranges from new parents to troubled teens. Starting with the adaptation into parenthood to those all important foundations with regards to routines, family rules and core beliefs; her work in this area is wide and varied. The main reoccurring topics are relationships with food, bedtime/before school routines, healthy communication and ‘cause and consequence’.

Like all the areas I cover I start with understanding my client, what makes them tick, what are their strengths and what are the areas for development. I make bespoke plans to take all these personal characteristics into account. The same is said for the child. One of my core beliefs and principles as a coach (and a parent) is that for any plan to work it has to ‘feel right’ – and its my job to make this happen! With parenting there are two unarguable truths. First, there is no Guide Book/Instructions leaflet and second, there is no such thing as the perfect parent but we all strive for happiness in our families and that’s the ultimate measure of my success“.

    I connected with Jill when I was totally fed up of feeling like my kids don’t listen to me; mornings, meal times and bedtimes had become a real nightmare for all of us! As a mum herself she could relate easily to my struggles. During some Coffee Shop sessions we detailed how I would like those daily routines to look and feel. We also discussed what was stopping me from taking control. Jill spent some time in my home helping me to put in place some really simple changes and structure. There are always those days when the kids won’t put their shoes on, and that’s assuming we know where both shoes are! There is no such thing as the perfect child/parent (phew!). But, I have the skills, confidence and tools to make things run more smoothly. We are so much happier! (Ruth)
