I’m Kathleen Hennessy and I’ve combined my 30 years of experience working with families into a program I call PeaceWorks Coaching. I blend mindfulness and body-based practices with practical steps and action to balance a conscious mindful approach with concrete practical solutions.
As a Parent Educator, I carry a torch for a peaceful world through peace in families. I aim to spread this light by sharing my vision of healing through parenting with deep listening, respectful discipline, and mindfulness.
I guide stressed and frustrated parents to establish a loving, laughing, learning family life with PeaceWorks Parenting, a heart-and-soul mindfulness-based approach to parenting which fosters cooperation, self-responsibility and h6 confidence.
My popular workshops, talks, and 1:1 coaching have transformed the lives of 100s of families since 1983. I draw upon a wealth of experience in family counseling and progressive education to support families to find the approach that best suits their unique needs and values. I truly love my work and that is why I am now going online to share with more people.
