How We Can Help

Raising a child is rewarding but can often feel demanding and challenging. With so much conflicting advice on offer, a lack of local family support and the juggling act of modern life, parents often lose confidence in their own instinct and abilities and have become fearful of “doing the wrong thing”.

Recurring areas which parents feel they struggle with are sleep (or lack of!), feeding, including meal times, breastfeeding and weaning and behavioural issues such as tantrums, hitting and biting. Gentle Touch Parenting can support you through learn and play groups and infant massage, or more intensively with specific behaviours through a personalised support plan. All our support is designed to sensitively guide you to nurture and connect with your child so that you are able to understand, enjoy and support his learning and development.
