I am delighted that Rebecca Thompson has agreed to be one of my guest speakers for the Matrix Birth Reimprinting Webinar.

She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with special-ized training in attachment and trauma.Consciously Parenting: What It Really Takes to Raise Emotionally Healthy Families is Rebecca’s first book, and the first of four books in the Consciously Parenting Series.
The Consciously Parenting Project, LLC is comprised of an on-line community, educational opportunities for parents including TeleParenting Support Classes, Family-friendly retreats, tele-seminars and in-person workshops, articles, and an extensive resource list on a wide variety of parenting topics.
The Consciously Parenting Project, LLC centers on relationship-focused Parenting, seeking to understand what behaviors mean to make the best decisions possible for the relationship between the parent and child, as well as to understand the dynamics in the family. It is a comprehensive, research-based paradigm that can be used with all families, from those looking to prevent behavior issues to those with severe behavior issues. Consciously Parenting focuses on the relationships between parents, the relationship between parent and child, and all the relationships within the family system to make lasting changes, rather than simply focusing on the behaviors. Consciously Parenting understands that behaviors are simply a communication and we seek to understand what the behavior is communicating in order to address the underlying issues contributing to the behavior instead.
We also seek to educate parents about a wide range of outside factors that can influence family-life, from media to the foods you choose to bring into your home. We seek to empower you to make the best decision for your family by providing the information and support you need to do so. This isn’t a one-sized fits all technique, but rather a different way of looking at the world in an aware, conscious way.

Consciously Parenting: What it Really Takes to Raise Emotionally Healthy Families (Volume 1)
As parents, we have a steady diet of conflicting information coming at us from all directions. The long list of essential dos and don’ts has most of us spinning our wheels in indecision, not knowing what we’re actually supposed to do to parent our children. We follow parenting advice from “experts” even if it doesn’t feel right because we aren’t sure what else to do or we feel that someone else must know what our child needs better than we do.
Consciously Parenting is about listening to your own inner guidance system, trusting your own inner voice about what is needed in your family and for your child. It is also about finding what you need and finding a way to meet your own needs in a way that still respects the needs of your child and the needs of the relationship.
