About Us

Our Mission

Inspiring and equipping today’s parents, families, and communities to raise capable, caring, contributing children.

Our Vision

A world where all children are nurtured to discover, cultivate and apply their natural gifts.

Our Unique Approach

Natural Strength Parenting™ encourages adults to be intentional and mindful in their parenting and caring for children, while focusing on the child’s innate strengths. Building on their strengths will increase their confidence, self-esteem and resilience all which lead to a positive well-being.

Natural Strength ParentingTM

Our approach incorporates the key elements that enable adults to develop safe, stable, nurturing relationships with children, foundational to children’s ability to thrive. Grounded in the science of Positive Psychology and Social Cognitive Theory, and developed through the lens of trauma informed care, Natural Strength ParentingTM serves as the catalyst for positive change.

  • We serve as facilitator and guide in the process of self-discovery and empower the people we serve to lead their own growth, and that of their families.
  • We understand the biological, environmental and interpersonal contexts within which people live, and view all individuals as capable and resourceful, born with natural gifts that support adaptability and growth.
  • We co-create meaningful and lasting change by listening to the voice of the people we serve, while delivering evidence-based interventions that incorporate intentional, mindful, and strength-based practices.

Connection

To lay the foundation for change, we build safe, stable, nurturing relationships with the people and communities we serve, as well as with each other. We create connection through the mindfulness practices of being fully engaged, present, and accepting in each moment.

Context

Key to individual, systemic and sustainable change is understanding the biological, environmental and interpersonal contexts within which people live, including the situations, circumstances, settings and environments in which they live. Within this, we view individuals as strength-based, capable and resourceful, born with unique, natural gifts that support adaptability and growth.

Co-creation

We work with our partners and other stakeholders to intentionally co-create meaningful and lasting change. In doing so, we use evidence-based behavior change techniques and interventions and incorporate intentional, mindful, and strength-based practices as catalysts for change.
