The Serenity Practice exists to create social change at a grassroots level through mums taking care of each other in community. Sharing their lived experiences, attending retreats and participating in coaching programmes to gain freedom from the fear and anxiety so that they can parent from their innate wisdom and serenity. As the taoist saying goes – from quiet mind comes right action.
Set up as a Community Interest Company the Serenity Practice’s core values are Collaboration, Community and Change.
Community & Change
Change happens through Community‘ Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world said the anthropologist Margaret Mead.
I give my time, experience and love to you. You give your love and support to your child.
The money that you pay goes to do the same for others in less fortunate positions.
What you spend touches much more than just your immediate family it has an impact far and wide. This how we change the world, mums helping mums, who in turn are supporting the next generation.
I work very closely with two other charities who are committed to supporting the mental health of young people.
iheart the charity that changed mine and my families life. I trained as an iheart facilitator because of my daughters mental health challenges. Realising the depth of iheart’s understanding of innate wellbeing not only helped my daughter access her own built-in resilience, but fundamentally changed everything about the way I work with clients. Iheart have an 11 week curriculum that is taught in schools. I still work for them one day a week teaching children between 10 -18 this life changing program. My husband has become a trustee because of the difference it made to our lives.

Parenting mental health
When Suzanne Alderson’s 14-year-old daughter became suicidal in 2015, she and her family were thrown into a dark, frightening, and isolating time. All of the support was focused, rightly, on her daughter, but she knew that as a parent she had a vital part to play in guiding her daughter and her family through this challenging experience. And there simply wasn’t anywhere she could find to get the kind of support, training or connection she needed to help her.
You see why I have partnered with this charity, Suzanne’s story so mirrored mine that it felt important to share what she is doing with you all. I get involved with Q&As and various initiatives including fundraising.
The Parenting mental health website has lots of free resources.
Although the work they do is very similar to mine, its so important to me that we work together.
So go on over and check out what they do to see if you find it helpful.
