Terry's Mission

"My mission is to support parents in being the kind of parents they really want to be by helping them develop the necessary skills and knowledge for parenting in today's world without guilt and uncertainty."

Mother of Four

Perhaps Terry's strongest credentials are that she is the mother of four children. As a parent, she understands the many demands and challenges facing today's parents. She also knows that amidst the chaos, parents sometimes need support in maintaining both their sanity and a balanced life. That's where parent coaching comes in. With the power to transform lives, parent coaching helps parents with the most important job in the world - raising well adjusted children in a healthy home environment.

A professionally trained and certified coach, Terry brings the power of personal coaching to family living.

With her innate listening and problem solving gifts, she helps parents find solutions to their parenting problems. Whether through one-on-one coaching, workshops or courses, she helps them to better develop their parenting skills so that their parenting is easier, less stressful and less frustrating.

Terry holds a Master's Degree in Education from the University of Toronto. Trained through the Coaches Training Institute and the Adler School of Professional Parent Coaching, she is a member of the International Coach Federation, Coachville and the Ontario College of Teachers.
