Welcome. I’m Nicole Keep and I’m a parent too.

I have been through many parenting challenges of my own, so I like to work with parents from a place of professional training and qualification, as well as personal experience.

Becoming a parent is a huge life change, and can require significant and sometimes unexpected adjustments.  Often parenting doesn’t feel as it was expected to, has an impact on relationships, can bring a loss of independence, create financial insecurities, or open up issues from your own childhood. It can create big emotions like anger, trauma, guilt, or shame. It can be exhausting and confusing leaving parents feeling emotionally vulnerable and lost, battling with feelings.

I offer support and insight to try and help you overcome your unique challenge or Parent ‘Cloud’. Please get in touch to explore your feelings and take positive steps towards enjoying parenting more. I believe that a happier parent leads to a happier child, and happier family relationships. Because behind those clouds, with support, there is light.

How I Work

 

I work with parents individually or in groups.

Individually I offer one-hour face-to-face consultations or Skype sessions. If you are interested in having individual sessions with me, please complete the simple ParentClouds form here and I will contact you within 24hrs to discuss your needs further.

I also offer one day courses on common parenting issues for small groups of parents.  These courses explore each topic and provide information and advice on how to overcome feelings and take positive steps forward. Details of the courses can be found here, and you can secure your place by booking online today. These courses are also available on a one to one or per family basis, so if this of interest to you please contact me for further information.

If you have questions or are interested in learning more about how I might be able to help you, then please get in touch, and we can discuss a comfortable solution that best meets your needs.

 

My Background & Qualifications

I am passionate about helping parents.

I am dedicated to ongoing research and training to learn more about how to help, and have been working with families for the last 5 years.

I am a Psychotherapist and Counsellor educated to Master’s degree level, and am registered with the BACP.  I specialise in the areas of childhood experiences, including inner child issues and attachment challenges, birth trauma, and psychological parenting issues.  

I have also trained with the Maternity Nurse Training School achieving qualifications as a Child Sleep Consultant, Breastfeeding Counsellor, and Postnatal Illness and Birth Trauma Counsellor. I also hold qualifications in Children’s Behaviour Management, and have extensive training on shame, guilt and resilience in adults, including my own soon to be published research study on this subject.  Added to my own parenting challenges I like to offer a breadth of knowledge and support to families. My biggest reward is to be able to help.
