Hi, I’m Jill. As a parenting coach, I work with parents of 10–19 year olds to help them find a more mindful, empathic approach to parenting that builds self-esteem and connection for both parents and young people.
I’ve spent many years juggling a busy working life in educational publishing whilst bringing up my two daughters, and experienced first-hand the twists and turns of being a parent.
I personally found the teenage years particularly challenging, but all the more manageable with the Take 3 parenting toolkit. This inspired me to want to help others restore that sense of balance, so I recently became certified to run the Take 3 parenting programme, including 1-1 coaching sessions, and set up my own business with a fellow parenting coach.
I believe it is within everyone’s reach to lead a happy and fulfilled family life. But at some point in life, most people feel overwhelmed with their difficulties and need some fresh input to untangle what’s going on.
Parent coaching is suitable for anyone who feels like family life isn’t quite panning out how they hoped it would.
Whatever the difficulty, I offer a safe space to be truly listened to and a chance to work through the Take 3 strategies and tools to help you get back on track.
Take 3 is based on the key principles of Nurture, Structure and Self-care, which are three core elements of successful parenting.
The core programme consists of 10 sessions, which form the basis for all family structures, however, there is no obligation to complete the full programme and sessions can be booked on a week-by-week basis.
One of the aspects of Take 3 that I love is that through experiential learning, and exploration of your own stories, skills are gained which can have really positive effects throughout all areas of your life.
Exploring empathy, active listening and assertiveness will benefit any relationship, whether with your own family, partner or even work colleagues.
My qualifications include:
Certified Take 3 Faciliator
Certificate in Counselling Skills
BSc. Hons, Bio/Anth
I offer sessions online and face-to-face.
My availability is Monday to Friday.
Prices are £35 per 75 min session one-to-one / £45 per 90 min session for couples.

"My husband and I are part way through the Take 3 course with Jill and have found it very illuminating with varying rewards. We have two teenagers of 19 and 18 and I am learning that listening is so key to being a parent, as well as thinking before reacting, and that learning this 'late in the game' can still produce results. Jill has delivered the course with professionalism and empathy and I would highly recommend her."
"As struggling parents of two late teen children, my wife and I have started the Take 3 course with Jill, looking for assistance with various issues. Jill has provided great insight and has provided us with numerous tools in dealing with everyday events that have continually stressed us. The course is well structured in enabling problems to be looked at from a different angle. Jill is non-judgemental and professional in dealing with personal matters."
