Mihaela has given us a gift in her Hand-in-Hand Parenting sessions. She is a natural at making parents feel welcome and heard. Mihaela’s strong personality, coupled with her calmness and nurturing outlook, allows for a safe space where open-dialogue can happen and emotions can run freely. There is a wealth of information available for parents but to find another human being, another parent who can help bring clarity and create opportunities for sharing experiences, is an entirely different platform. This is what Mihaela does so well in each session. She is relatable, honest, aware and intentional about what she’s doing and it connects back to the parents in which she supports, mentors and guides.

As that fear grew so did my own guilt at the way things had become between us. And so, I thought, “it couldn’t hurt” to learn more about parenting by connection with Hand in Hand Parenting[…]

Hand in Hand Parenting was a great eye opener not only as a parent, but to my role as a wife, sister, daughter, colleague and friend as well. It provided me essential core actions that I can practice daily and see the benefits almost immediately. I learned that not everything is as it seems, and that science plays an important role in my child’s development. Seeing my child’s tantrum from positive to negative is still a work in progress, but it makes me feel confident she is just using her self-expression and trust in me to help guide her through her emotions […]
