‘”I haven’t felt my best ‘parent’ self with my 2nd child due to her wild (WILD) tantrums so it felt so great to work some of this through with Rachel.  She’s so easy to chat with and non-judgmental. Rachel provided very simple, clear, really practical advice and strategies that helped me remove a lot of my emotions and me focus on my child and what she needed during those extra big ‘outbursts’ (even at 4am!)”

This course popped up out of no where at a time I needed guidance and support the most. Rachel is engaging, genuine, and made me feel comfortable. I felt I was failing my son but now realise I was simply lacking the tools and insight. I am truly so grateful.” – Mum of 6 year old child

Raising your child is arguably one of the most important jobs we do, yet we are often the least prepared for it.

Think of all the training you have done for your other jobs.

Would do any other job just winging
it and learning as you go?

“My own upbringing was in no way ideal and before having children I was determined to be the kind of parent I wish I had. Fast forward to raising my 8 year old, I found myself angry, overwhelmed and worst of all repeating many of the things that scarred me from my own childhood. It was like I was challenging my own mother no matter my best intentions. Doing this course gave me another way, it gave me a way to break the cycle”

Frequently asked questions

What equipment do I need to attend this course?

The minimum is a smart phone the the zoom app downloaded. However, it will be a more enjoyable experience the use a laptop or a desktop computer that has a web camera.

If you are not familiar with zoom. I am more that happy to run a practice session prior to the event

Zoom is really user friendly, even if you are not techy.

What age children is this course for?

Positive Discipline is effective for all age children, in fact the lessons you learn will help your relationships with all people including adults. However, the activities and framework in this particular course is aimed for parents of children ages 4-12.

My child has ASD/ADHD will this course be suitable?

YES! Positive Parenting focuses on understanding, connection, respect, routine, and kind but firm boundaries. All of these things are a great benefit to all children but especially children with additional needs.  Also as parents when we have better understanding, tools and support it allow us to be the calm in our children’s often challenging storm.

Personally I have a special interest in ADHD, highly emotional and strong-willed children as I am raising one myself and it have been an integral part of my studies.

 

Will you be running the course at other times/days, this time doesn't work for me?

 Yes the plan would be to run different times/days to accommodate others.  Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss what other options I have or are planning.  There is also a recording available if you feel you can attend most of the sessions but not all.  If you are not sure… lets talk.

My partner is not onboard with this style of parenting, is it worth doing the course?

 

YES! While in a perfect world we would love to be on the same page with our parenting partner, the simple fact is that more often than not we aren’t. This framework is not an all or none system, it actually focuses on respectful communication for ALL and often can help bring couples together even if they have a difference of opinion. 

Whether you are parenting under the same roof with a partner, co-parenting separately, parallel parenting or completely flying solo – this course will help.

“Rachel is a kind and compassionate mentor who brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. Her sessions are incredibly informative and have helped my family immensely.

Hi, my name is Rachel Daldry (ACC, CACP, DipCouns), ADHD Coach and Counsellor

I am passionate about assisting people to work with their brain and create the life THEY want to live. My ADHD journey began six years ago when my daughter was diagnosed, which set me on a path of researching ADHD, the brain, and positive psychology.

My work began with supporting overwhelmed parents, a situation I was all too familiar with, and this is when the spark was lit inside me that I could help others not feel like they were failing. It’s a dark place that no one should get stuck in.

That spark became a fire when I began coaching and focusing on working with people impacted by ADHD. Working with another person to help them find their flow, work through their challenges, find their purpose, and feel like they are progressing is a gift.

I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) credentialed coach and Professional Association of ADHD Coaches (PAAC) credentialed ADHD Coach. In addition to this I have completed the ADHD Clinical Provider course, which included trainings from world-renowned ADHD experts such as Dr. Russell Barkley, Dr. Ari Tuckman, Dr. Saline Sharon, and Dr. Ned Hallowell.

I am a Licensed Counsellor and have a special interest in working with couples. I have completed Gottman Couples Therapy Clinical Training -  Level 2.

In addition to this, I am a Certified Positive Discipline Parent educator and have completed an additional accreditation with Dr Jane Nelson ‘Keeping the Joy in Relationships”.​

I welcome the opportunity to work with Adults who have ADHD or their family members.

Here’s what a client had to say…

I found working with Rachel to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience, and felt her approach as a collaborative supporter put me at ease. Rachel is professional without feeling clinical or sanitised, and holds space for emotional connection when appropriate. She does not spoon-feed you all the answers, rather encourages you to explore what you think will work for you and ask why to deepen your understanding of yourself. I have learnt valuable lessons I will be taking with me into the future and am very thankful to Rachel for offering her services.
