Parent Coach + Self Esteem Midwife

People always ask me – Elisheva – what do you actually DO? And how do I know if I will benefit from parent coaching with you?

Here is who I created my parent coaching programs for :

For the moms ( and/ or dads) who are doing. all . the. Things. 

  • The late night google searches on dyslexia. 
  • Buying the dyslexia or LD  books on amazon (that may or may not sit on the bedside table).
  • Carpooling to and from the tutoring 
  • Advocating for their child in school.

On the surface they are *doing* everything they can but when you pull the curtain back a little you see. 

  • Power struggles over tutoring and or homework.
  • Challenges with spouse regarding educating and parting philosophies. 
  • Increased complexity around sibling dynamics. 
  • Mom ( or dad)  feels run down and stressed, as well as isolated and alone. 

There is a pervasive feeling of insecurity around how the LD child will fare in high school college or the “real world”.

And mom ( or dad) is starting to feel exhausted having to hold the energetic container for the family and figure it out all alone.

But it doesn’t need to be like this!  If you are curious about doing one on one coaching with me email me at [email protected] and we will set up a free discovery call. 

What people are saying

“Elisheva consulting was a conversation of the heart and mind.  She has an uncanny way of distilling the complex world of dyslexia into words that others can understand and act upon.

Working with Elisheva empowered me to take the next step towards advocating for myself and my strengths!

When I recently met with Elisheva, my 8 year old had just moved schools. We got lots of very practical points to bring up with the school, things that we ourselves would never have come up with, but are brilliant ideas. Before the session with Elisheva, I wouldn't have had the confidence or knowledge to push for some of these ideas without her advice. The most powerful message that I took away from the session was the subtle but very important distinction that people i knew achieved something because of their dyslexia, not in spite of it - which was how I used to talk about it. The idea that my boss or my colleague had achieved this, that, or the other "even though" he is dyslexic has now been banished. This has now become, because of his dyslexia he is my boss, or she is our UX designer, or he is our graphic designer. It's because of NOT in spite of !
I find that message a very empowering, uplifting and TRUE message ! When I described my son, how he plays and what he enjoys, it was truly amazing to me to hear his behaviours described as being his dyslexic magic in motion. His ability to immerse himself in a task, these golden moments when he is creating, innovating and using his vision to do whatever it is that he is doing (building camps, making things with lego, fixing bikes, practising stunts on his skateboard.)
The freshness of the information in the session was so motivating and inspiring, that I felt lighter and happier about my son and his abilities It was 90 minutes of gold that I am truly grateful for. I subscribed to Elisheva's podcasts when Sam was assessed a few months ago, and I have found her podcasts to be an incredibly valuable resource, that coupled with her consultation with me, I cannot thank her enough for helping me to recalibrate my mindset.
