What: Phone based Hand in Hand Parenting Group for Parents of Pre-Teen and Teen children (9-12+ year olds). In these Support Calls, we will share facilitated listening time with a small group of other parents who are also reaching out for support. These groups are a chance for you to share your parenting experiences, reflect on your own story, plan for the challenges of family life and have your questions answered about using the Hand in Hand approach in your family.
Who: These groups are open to all parents of pre-teens and teens, although it is preferable if you have some familiarity with the Hand in Hand Parenting approach. If you are not familiar with Hand in Hand Parenting*, before the group starts I highly recommend booking an optional One-on-One Consultation. Offered for Support Call participants at a 40% discount off the regular price.
Where: 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.

Parenting Consultation: If this order is cancelled by you at any time, there is no refund of the Parenting Consultation fee. However, I understand that life happens, and 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, your original fee will be forfeited and you will need to purchase additional time.
I am a parent, and life happens to me too. If I have to reschedule the consultation for whatever reason, you can elect to receive a refund up to the date of the last Call in the series. You will receive your funds within 5 business days in the U.S. (within 7 days outside the U.S.), depending on your bank. Otherwise we can reschedule, in which case, the conditions above apply – I cannot refund, and if you miss that rescheduled appointment, and a subsequent one, you will forfeit your fee.
Support Calls: If cancelled by Event Organiser: your fees will be refunded in full to the credit card you paid with.
If cancelled by you, we reserve the right to refund the following amount, less a fee 5% of the total amount you paid:
- the full amount of any Support Calls you have paid for will be issued if you cancel in writing by 5p.m. 21 days prior to the first Call date in the series.
- 75% if you cancel between 5p.m. 21 and 5p.m. 14 days of the first Call date date in the series.
- 50% if you cancel between 5p.m. 14 days and 5p.m. 4 days before the first Call date date in the series.
- There will be no refund for tickets cancelled after 5p.m. days before the first Call date date in the series.
