What is Parent Gym?

Parent Gym is a series of six sessions proven to increase parents’ skills and confidence and so improve the behaviour and wellbeing of their children. We cover all aspects of life - such as how to increase and fine tune communication between children and parents, supporting worries, creating routines and tackling tricky behaviour. 

Parent Gym was independently evaluated by UEL in 2011, and Canterbury Christ Church University in 2012 – which found that two months or more after they had completed the programme 100% of parents interviewed reported that their relationships with their children had improved. Parent Gym has subsequently been independently evaluated by the University of Hertfordshire (2014) and the University of Warwick (2014 & 2016).
