Help Me To Parent Ltd was launched in October 2007. The two founding directors had attended a parenting course and were so impressed with the skills they learned, they passionately believed that every parent should have the opportunity to do a course such as this. Since establishing the company, the directors have reviewed and researched parenting courses and literature. During this time they discussed various aspects of parenting and parenting training with a number of professionals in the area of mental health and child/youth development.

In late 2016 Mary and Allen of CA Coaching came on board, bringing with them a range of exciting new programmes to add to the Help Me To Parent portfolio. All of the programmes/courses offered by Help Me To Parent are tried and tested and have received the seal of approval from the hundreds of families we have worked with over the years.
