Laura truly listens. And then focuses on problems at hand. She always gives a very practical advice but explains the reasons and shows a bigger picture too. She is also a mum who practices what she shares every day and a great source of parental knowledge that she keeps on expanding.
Huge thank you! I wouldn’t be where I am now without you.

Laura is an amazing guide on family related matters, I went to her for advice over a delicate family concern and this lady gave me good solid advice all this lead to giving me the confidence I needed to help achieve my goal!
I would highly recommend Laura at Connected Child if you are looking for someone with experience in child and family matters.
These days we lack extended families and the support of Village life, we parent without the knowledge being passed down and yet it takes a village to raise a child. We need all the help we can get.
Thank you so much Laura!

We were at a loss with our seemingly confident and strong willed adopted three year old boy until Laura stepped in with her insight and expertise. We were veering between reactive discipline and exhausted reasoning in response to his seemingly relentless ignoring of our direction and tendency to pull away from us and head toward danger.
Thankfully we encountered Laura who simply and clearly explained to us that she saw his actions as calls for more boundaries not less. She reassured us as to our role in the relationship and compassionately guided us through alternative ways of responding to him whilst maintaining being the adults in charge. In a very short time her work has transformed things for us all. Thank you Laura.
