About

With a background in aerial acrobatics Nina launched her own circus theatre company in 2010 as a newly single mum. The circus community has always been a place where children were integrated into the lifestyle allowing her to avoid the sense of isolation which many new mums face and maintain a strong sense of purpose and identity.

Nina has an MA in Philosophy from the University of St Andrews and is a qualified Steiner Teacher. She has a passion for finding the best ways to live. “We teach what we most need to learn”. Nina has had to go through a deep process of transformation, effectively reparenting herself while raising a child. “It has been an incredibly difficult journey but the process has given me a strong sense of what it takes to be emotionally well.”

Nina is motivated to share what she has learned from her own journey and from influential researchers in the field of parenting such as Gabor Mate, John Gottman, Marshall Rosenburgh and Sue Gerhardt.

Course Content

The beginning

There are so many choices involved in becoming a new parent, around babywearing, feeding, sleeping arrangements and we may have to navigate conflicting opinions from those around us. Our aim is to help you become better informed and present the latest neuroscientific discoveries.

Emotional intelligence

Learn how to raise emotionally intelligent children. 

Based on Professor John Gottman’s “emotional coaching” approach help your child to name, validate and handle their emotions as well as providing opportunities to bond with our child.

Self Care

We parent best when we are “non-stessed and non-depressed” [Gabor Mate]. We would like to provide you with the tools to integrate excellent self care practices and overcome blocks or resistance to this. This will lead to the kind of attunement our children really thrive on.

The course includes:

    • How to bond effectively with your baby and learn to communicate with them through touch, sound and eye contact.

    • Learn to attune with your child and read their signals.

    • As parents we are at our best when we are relaxed, happy and fulfilled. Make a plan to care for yourself so that you can care for your child effectively.

    • Understand our parenting choices from birth onwards and the neuroscience behind them.

    • Learn to be an emotional coach and help your child to develop great habits which will allow them to thrive.

    • Consciously acknowledge becoming a parent as an important rite of passage, make space to let go and move in to this new phase.

    • Relationship skills.

Our classes are designed to create a fun and effective learning environment come away from the session feeling uplifted and inspired.
