I will hold your hand and guide you through the process, give you tools, new knowledge, skills and support you on every step of the way.
You will be empowered to empower your child.
You will move from daily challenges...
Frustration by your child's behavior... resentment and lack of patience toward your kids...
power struggles with your kids... loneliness and having no support
your triggers... issues with your parenting partner... overwhelm...
difficulty regulating your negative emotions.... feelings of guilt... yelling...
defiance, acting out, back talk... battle with excessive screen time
sibling rivalry... picky eating... biting, hitting and aggression... bedtime struggles...
Let's Work Together
Parenting is a relationship. Your relationship with your child's is very special-it's her first one. It serves as a blueprint for future relationships. There are no tricks or quick-fixes.
It’s about connection, cultivating empathy, giving acceptance, honoring emotions, trust, perspective taking, effective communication, personal growth, changing your mindset about behavior and growing in peace. Together.
Emotions are huge part of my work. It’s about allowing yourself and your children to feel and not be afraid of human emotions (the entire range).
If you cary painful experiences from your past, I will assist you in making sense of your story, heal and move forward with ease and more confidence.
You do not want to burden your children with your load. It is all about being in tune with your true, authentic self and helping your child find his authentic self by giving him emotional support.
Discover all about my freedom frame-an easy to use tool to help you set limits with kindness and love and never impose arbitrary and unnecessary "rules". Logical consequences are sugar coated punishment.
You don't have to be a strict parent. You don't have give in or become permissive...There is a better way.
I invite you to take your child's perspective. Look at the world through the eyes of your child. It is our goal to guide them. We can't change who they are or want to be. If a child is happy playing with sticks all by himself in a busy playground full of kids, let him be. Don't rush pushing him onto the climbing equipment or forcing him to make friends. Try to put yourself into his shoes. Why is he fascinated by that stick?
I created the 4 step powerful C.A.L.M formula to help you in the heat of the moment to gain equanimity, stop your reactivity, and respond with mindfulness, kindness and love. After the CALM you can then listen empathically to your child's feelings to support his growth and establish emotional safety. Empower your child to problem solve. Build closeness and trust.
Never resort to yelling.
Never resort to spanking.
Never resort to rewards and punishments.
"When we control our children, we lose our influence."
I don't use that word. I think it's punitive, disrespectful and useless.
There is only behavior.
There are no quick-fixes in parenting. Your child's behavior is a communication of needs. Unmet needs.
I will teach you the 6 emotional needs and help you to decode your child's most challenging behaviors, stay calm and respond instead of reacting.
We all face the same challenges but our stories and journeys are different.
I want to help you to be the best parent you want to be.
It all starts with a conversation. I'd love to hear your story.
See how authentic parenting changed lives
Working with you has helped me and my family tremendously. I love to talk to someone who is available to hear my concerns and complains and really understands them. I really feel you go above and beyond for your clients and I really admire you as a professional and as a human being.
Anna Seewald's wisdom has changed the way I approach parenting after just one session with her. I've been able to see my toddler's behavior in a new light and spend more time enjoying his company.
Thank you so much for the fanstastic workshop! I have really felt a shift in how I respond to my children following the workshop.
My daughter ate a salad today with spinach... I almost fell off my chair. THANK YOU!!!
I found the workshop very enlightening. The concepts were easy to use. The seminar game me a toolkit to spend productive time with my kids and solve everyday issues which every parent faces in a fun and playful manner.
Anna was great. Not only did she teach me different ways about thinking of parenting but she also let me speak my mind and ask questions. I learned a lot from her. Anna is a great and wonderful person.Thank you so much Anna...
