Online training: the mother and child online training program gives great insights into new ways of working with babies and children. Learn early imprinting and how the birth experience can deeply influence the behaviour of babies and children. Babies remember their birth and the time in the womb. These memories are recorded on a cellular level and are known as implicit memory. As babies grow older early imprints can become triggered and can have a significant influence on child behaviour.

Really appreciated the teaching using very understandable words and language along with case stories and examples.’ PT

"Patricia helped me in ways with my baby that I did not even know were possible. My daughter was born by c-section and was a baby who startled very easily. When I first brought her to Patricia at 2 weeks old she could immediately see that my baby was very activated and was finding it hard to regulate and stay in the calm zone for long periods. The work she did with my baby was transformative. She became a very settled, contented baby who was easily able to transition from being calm to active and back to calm again. I have learnt so much from Patricia as a new Mum and she really gets you to see everything from the baby’s perspective.
She gave me huge confidence to take the time to really understand my baby so I could respond best to her and bond deeply with her. She thought me about her energy and different signals so that I could understand better how to support her. She gave me brilliant advice on really gentle techniques for settling my baby, giving her her first baths, encouraging her to roll and all the key developmental milestones. She has been a blessing to me as a Mum and I have learnt so much from her and my daughter has gained so much from her sessions . I love her gentle, kind approach with babies and it’s enabled me to truly enjoy every moment with my little girl"
