Hello! My name is Olivia and I am The Positive Parent Coach®️. I am the UK Positive Parenting expert for children aged 0-7 years, supporting parents like you with any challenges you might be experiencing from emotional outbursts and not listening to you all the way to helping with fussy eating and getting more sleep.
I help Mums & Dads develop a calm, present and positive parenting style, stepping away from any generational habits that you want to avoid. This might be helping you to understand your child and their level of development better so you can support them in a way that develops their skills and learning, rather than resulting in power battles and more tantrums. It can also mean helping you to recognise your own triggers and negative habits and supporting you to work through these and let go of guilt so you can enjoy your parenting and not feel like you’re failing in comparison to others. Everything I teach is based in science and positive psychology meaning its tried and tested and will continue to give you the results you want not only in the short term, but as your child grows and turns into an adult.
The wonderful thing about my approach is it means responding to your child’s needs and behaviours in a calm way; no more shouting or yelling or feeling like you’re about to lose it! It means being present with your child; focusing on the time you have together in the moment and enjoying your parenting. It means you and your child having a strong, positive relationship where you both feel happy and that your needs are being met 🥰. This means your child is less likely to be impacted by peer influence, start to rebel and lie to you and is better able to acknowledge and process their feelings so communication can remain honest and open.
More detail about who I am:
I am the Founder of Raising Positive People and I am on a mission to help Parents around the world to build positive connections with themselves and their children.
I work with Mums & Dads just like you to help you:

If you’ve ever found yourself feeling unsure of how to respond to your child’s behaviour, or thinking there must be a better way as you spend most of your day nagging or refereeing your children then you’re in the right place! There is a better way and I can show you how 😀
I have over 14 years experience in Psychology, Education and Child Development. I’ve published 2 scientific papers, trained as a specialist in The Early Years and completed training in Theraplay. I’ve also continued to develop my knowledge and training around Positive Psychology and Positive Parenting. I have a 5 year old, 2 year old and a 1 year old so you can trust that I really do understand the challenges and demands of motherhood, and how to juggle responsibilities. My own parenting journey has enabled me to develop my skills and have complete confidence that My Positive Parenting Approach works even with multiple children and smaller age gaps.
I have also spoken at 2 global conferences, featured in magazines and on guest speaker blogs and been interviewed by a number of other professionals across the sector. I support Early Years Settings as well as families and can help you in liaising with your child’s educational setting if required.
Being a parent is incredible but you can’t deny it has its challenges. It’s learning to overcome those challenges, to grow and develop, to be aware of you and your desires and to know that being a parent doesn’t mean you can’t have dreams and aspirations for yourself. It takes commitment and dedication, like all good things, but it’s a positive way of life and ensures your are setting your child up to success. What you do now matters because you are laying down the foundations for the rest of your child’s life and all of their future relationships. If you’re experiencing challenges or feeling lost reach out to me so we can out those positive changes in place now.
