MEET OUR TEAM

Our programmes are only taught by instructors certified by Gordon Training International. Classes consist of brief lectures, demonstrations, workbook exercises, role-playing, lots and lots of coaching, some homework, and small group discussions.

 

You will receive a set of programme materials, a participant certificate and a copy of Dr Gordon’s Credo. The schedule depends on the individual certified instructor.

I am an Educational Psychologist and have been working with families and children for over a decade. I am currently the Director at Home-Start South Africa, an NPO that offers emotional support and practical guidance to families with young children. I have a passion for children, and my mission is to help change the way parents relate to their children as I believe that if we want to change the world, we need to start with the way we parent our children.
