Meet Genevieve

She's your key to connection

Did you know that rewards, punishments, time outs, sticker charts, and copious amounts of praise do not work?

Many parents are grasping at different strategies, not really sure whether what worked for their parents will work for them in a very different world.

There isn’t a modern roadmap or how-to guide that works for all and this leaves many parents asking ‘what does work?’

Research shows that children who have a secure attachment with at least one adult do better at school, enjoy greater physical health, and go on to have more intimate, fulfilling, and enduring relationships through life.

In essence, this is everything we want for our kids.

Where to begin with what a difference you made Gen to our transition home with out first baby. Our story was complex as our first baby was stillborn and so the emotions when expecting our second baby (but the first we would take home) were complex. Gen’s class at the Mater just made such a difference to us. We realised so much of our babies behaviour we were worried about was normal and common and started to get a picture of how to set ourselves up for success with self-care and going slow. Thank you Gen your class was really so helpful for us.

Karen, St Kilda

Thank you gen for your speech at the ‘Ultimate Mothers Group’ I loved more than anything the point you hit home that you can’t form a bad habit before 12 weeks.  So, So SOOOO many times I have heard put the baby down because you will spoil them, let them put themselves to sleep, don’t feed to sleep. Thanks for the reminder that it’s ok to love them our way!!!

Michaela, Newtown

I saw Gen privately though the Mater after the birth of my second baby and the session with her was so helpful. Gen talked about attachment, connection, boundaries and it all helped us know what to do to make sure our older boy didn’t get jealous when we brought home the baby.  The best bit was getting an understanding how to introduce the baby and toddler for the first time, with gens advice the whole thing went so much better than we thought and we were so grateful for the help as we were really anxious about it in the lead up.
