Parenting with a difference!

facilitated by Falguni Mather

Monday 4th November 10:00am – 2pm
Venue: The Body Group, Central HK
Fee: $1,250 / person

Conscious Parenting workshopFrom homework, bed time, sibling rivalry and bullying issues to leaving for university, dating, and beyond – parenting can be an emotional roller coaster no matter how old your children are, bringing guilt, stress, frustration, worry, self doubt and more frustration.

Parenting is one of the toughest and most important jobs in the world and yet we have no training for it. What this means is that we often parent from the unconscious basis of our own experience.

Research shows that parenting styles have a huge impact on children and their development; behavior, health, and emotional intelligence. To have a healthy parenting style with the right balance of nurturing with boundaries, we need to parent consciously.

Parenting can be less stressful when we parent consciously and mindfully. This workshop is about noticing our own patterns, getting ourselves out of our own way, building authentic relationships with our children so they can be self-assured, empathic and resilient.


“ Your own life as a child is one of the strongest influences on how you parent today” – Robin Grille, Psychologist, Parenting Educator


As a parent myself, I know how stress can build up and affect all the family members. In my parenting journey I have found a few tools and techniques to be invaluable, which you will learn in this workshop. These tools include the EFT tapping technique, Listening skills, Building rapport, developing empathy and more.

Learning to parent “consciously” has been transformative in resolving the stresses that have invariably surfaced within our family over the years. My children are now 20 and 16 years old, and our relationship has never been better. I am passionate about sharing my work with all parents out there because I know this works.

In this half-day workshop I will demonstrate how EFT and other tools enable us to parent consciously and mindfully. You will learn how to use the EFT technique for your own stress and worries, as well as how to teach it to your children.

This workshop will address:

  • Calming young children having strong emotional feelings
  • Dealing with nightmares and fears
  • Issues with friends, bullying, isolation, feeling left out
  • Aches and pains
  • School/University stress, confidence, performance anxiety
  • Moving school, home or country
  • Helping children of all ages deal with stress in their lives

Helpful for you as a parent to address:

  • Building a closer bond and connection with your child
  • Recognising fears vs. values
  • Frustration with sibling rivalry, child’s behaviour
  • Anger with children
  • Exhaustion as a parent
  • Feeling like a bad parent
  • Not feeling connected to your child/children
  • Helpless with helping your child
  • Feeling alone as a parent

When we can be present to our children and recognise their needs, we can help them to effectively deal with life’s challenges and have the confidence and resilience to pursue their dreams. We can also ensure true bonding and connection in our relationships with our children.

“The greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of the parents.” – Carl Jung

Live your best life!

Are you living your best life? If not, what’s getting in the way?

Sometimes you just need to talk, even if you don’t know where to start or what the problem is, exactly. I aim to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment, so you can voice your concerns while feeling heard.

Specialising in recovery from trauma, relief from chronic issues and raising confidence and self-esteem, I also help clients with stress, anxious feelings, low moods, relationship problems, grief, performance issues, phobias, life transitions, finding direction, and general well being.

Integrative Counselling
Incorporating the fundamental principles of traditional talk therapy with holistic approaches, my comprehensive approach is geared toward working with the full spectrum of human experience: emotional, mental, physical and spiritual.

I firmly believe that ultimately our stresses and limitations are held not only in our mental narratives but also in our physical bodies, and that both somatic as well as cognitive approaches are important for healing, recovering and making positive life changes.

In my experience no single form of therapy is apt, or even adequate in all situations, and my integrative approach allows me to meet your specific and individual needs in our work together.


Falguni Mather, Counselling, EFT, Hong Kong
Private Sessions :
Wherever you are at right now, I believe in you. I am fully invested in doing my part to work with you, so you can connect to, and use your inner resources, allowing you to live your life in a way that is most meaningful and satisfying to you.

Physical symptoms, Chronic Pain, Illness:
My integrative body-mind-social approach enables me to work with you regardless of what difficulty you are experiencing. If you’re suffering from physical symptoms – including chronic pain or illness – and can’t find a solution, chances are there are an underlying unresolved aspects. I’ll be detective and work with you to find root causes that are getting in the way of your well being, so you can release triggers for your acute or chronic symptoms and allow your body to heal. As Dr. Gabor Maté says, “The physiology of one individual cannot be separated from the psychological and social environment.”

Workshops & Support Groups:
Working in groups can be a powerful way to access change within you. It can often bring new perspectives to help you see your situation a new light. Clarity brings new solutions. Sharing and listening to others helps to ease a sense of isolation as you build a connection with other members. Same as individual sessions, groups and workshops are confidential. Consider attending my monthly Introduction to EFT Tapping group, the 6 Week Support Group or consider getting together a group in your workplace or community, for people experiencing similar issues. A cost effective way of accessing support.
