What: Hand in Hand Starter Class for parents – Over 6 hours of video materials, and 180 minutes of 1-1 Individual Consultations, beginning with an Initial 60 Minute Consultation so that Madeleine can learn more about your specific parenting challenges.   The link for booking the Consultation is in the email you should have received.

Who: For parents of children 0-12. If your children are older, don’t fear – I have a teenager, and I work closely with parents of pre-teens and teens and will be able to help you understand how to use the tools with your older children.

How: We use Zoom Conferencing. You can join with vision via your web browser or an app on your phone. You can also simply dial in using your phone. There are local dial-in numbers in many countries.

The Course consists of Six online video “Classes”, introducing Hand in Hand, and covering each of the five Listening Tools.  The course is very full, so work through it as you are able.  You have at least a year in the Classroom to get through, and if you wish, revisit the materials there.

Optional Parenting Support Calls You also have the option of joining Madeleine’s ongoing parenting Support Calls, either instead of a Consultation, or for an additional cost.  Joining a group of other parents offers a chance to share your parenting experiences, and learn from other parents.  Calls are organised to allow time for you to ask questions, and offer Listening Time to each participant.   Each Call is the equivalent of 30 minutes of 1-1 Consulting time.  When you meet Madeleine for your Initial Consultation, let her know if you would like to join a Support Call.

Support Calls run between 60 and 90 minutes. If there is only one person on the Call, the Call will last 30 minutes.  Don’t worry if you are late – I will stay on the Call for at least 30 minutes from the start time.

Times for the Calls for the next few months are:

USA: Sundays, 6p.m. Pacific

Australia: Mondays,
1pm AEDT on February 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th and March 2nd.
12 Noon AEDT  on March 9th, 16th, 23rd, 30th.
11a.m. AEST Monday April 6th.

Refunds Policy

Refunds are considered on a case by case basis, but in general refunds are not available.

Missed Consultations or Calls: no refund is available if you miss a Call or Consultation. However, I understand that life happens, and if you miss a Consultation, I am happy to reschedule at a mutually convenient time. If you need to cancel please let me know 24 hrs. in advance, whenever possible. If we reschedule a call at your request and it is missed a second time, you will forfeit the Consultation time of that booking.

I am a parent, and life happens to me too. If I have to cancel the Consultation, it will be rescheduled to a mutually convenient time. If you miss a Support Call you have booked, and spaces are available, we will do our best to include you in future Calls to makeup the Call. I cannot guarantee space will be available, however.  If I have to reschedule a Support Call for any reason, it will be rescheduled to another time.

Looking forward to connecting with you soon! ~Madeleine
