Every parent faces problems at some stage whilst on the roller coaster of raising children.
There are amazing moments, followed by the lowest of lows.
You’ll be quite surprised to learn that most of your parenting struggles aren’t so much about your child, but the lenses you see and manage your child’s behaviour through that makes the situation more complicated. As such, YOU, the parent, unintentionally prevent your child from becoming the responsible, self-sufficient, emotionally resilient adult you’d wish your child to become.
Working with Michelle Neaves from It’s All Connected, you’ll want to make sense of your children. You’ll also make sense of yourself; exploring your own childhood experiences, how you were raised – healthy or unhealthy – and how your childhood shapes the way you parent today. Michelle draws on neurobiology, attachment research in neuroscience, the emotional developmental paradigm, emotion coaching, play, and many other areas on your personal development and parenting journey.
You’ll learn the importance for you, the parent, to create the necessary healthy relational conditions to grow your child up through each of their unique developmental stages.
In conjunction with your own personal development journey – which focuses on looking through a new parenting lens – you’ll learn how your child develops emotionally versus chronologically. You’ll make sense of their intense need for attachment, their tears and tantrums, the vital importance of play in a child’s maturation, to make sense of frustration and aggression, and navigate giving natural consequences in a manner that preserves growth and the relationship with your child.

What Our Clients Say
listening when it comes to leadership, and it’s a skill she demonstrates masterfully in her coaching style. It’s her ability to both understand and challenge when needed and to ask the right questions that makes working with Michelle such a valuable experience.”
Parenting is arguably the most important job in the world, and it can throw you all sorts of twists and turns that can be difficult to navigate and leave you feeling helpless and incapable.
Michelle has literally changed my life through her coaching and guided me through the adjustment of parenting children who have been through layers of traumatic experiences.
With her knowledge in the neuroscience that reaches deep to the root of problems that create behaviors and reactions, she armed me with such a valuable and immense artillery of tools and teachings that when implemented, entirely flipped the switch.
Each week she would give me a lesson to focus on and install into my family’s routine, the next week we’d discuss what worked and what didn’t (although I have to say that every single suggestion, she gave me was well digested and worked wonders). She created a safe environment where I felt like I could truly be honest about every aspect of where I was succeeding and where I needed improvement and she did not make me feel judged in any way.
There is no price I wouldn’t pay for the value I have gotten out of my experience with Michelle. It has been entirely life-changing and has not only drastically improved the environment in which I am raising my step-children so that they are able to play, rest and grow, but also in my confidence as a mother and step-mother and a person in general.
It is hard to open up, and it is hard to be a parent; I urge you to connect with Michelle to gain the brilliant insights she has to share that truly move mountains where home life is concerned. I cannot express enough the ease of mind I now have moving forward with the skills I have gained. It truly is ‘All Connected’.
“My name is Angela, I am 34 yrs old and I have a 5 year old boy. I am a single mother to a handsome smart little boy.
I have unintentionally emotionally hurt my little boy from my addiction with alcohol. In August 2018, my son was put into foster care. This was at my lowest point. My worst nightmare. I failed as a parent.
I started work with Michelle in November 2018.
Michelle has helped me grow immensely as a woman, a sister, a mother and as a friend. She has helped me understand why I was using alcohol as a way to cope from my own traumas as a child.
The work I have done with Michelle has been emotionally hard, exhausting and rewarding.
I have changed my parenting style. My son doesn’t run the house and he tries. Oh how he tries. I’m no longer feeling guilty of saying “you can’t have a brand new toy every week or candy etc”. I was absolutely ‘never’ going to say “no” to my boy…inevitably, raising him just like how the males in my family were.
Michelle has helped me in so many ways. I don’t think she knows how many.
- Confidence in myself and decision making
- Healing from my experience of abuse
- Motivation to make memories with my boy
- To be more engaged with my boy (less screen time)
- Healing from my 2nd pregnancy
- Being non judgemental when I told her the gritty parts
- Calling me out when I would try to not discuss a topic because it was painful emotionally.
There is so much more.
The old Angela was drinking 4 times a week, had suicidal ideation, was an extreme selfharmer, and she was hurting inside awful.
The new Angela is a recovering alcoholic, is on proper medication and new coping skills and good insights for my triggers, and I no longer self-harm.
I accepted my traumas as experiences, I am still growing to love myself even more. And I am looking forward to my future with my little man.
Thank you Michelle. We (especially I) love you.“
