Welcome to Frida Be Mighty!
I’m Eloise. A mother, writer, feminist, parent educator and peaceful parenting coach. I live in a house full of books in South London with my husband Sam, our four year old daughter Frida whom we are homeschooling, and our mischievous ginger cat Albie.
I studied Anthropology at Cambridge University before working in political communications, most recently as a senior press officer in a Government department. Following the birth of my daughter I realised that my heart didn’t belong to this world and that the fast pace of Government communications no longer suited my values and the life I wanted for myself and my daughter.
I trained as an antenatal teacher and birth & postnatal doula and, following a period of time when I worked as a birth coach, I now work with parents at every stage of their parenting journey, supporting them to give their children a slow, gentle, beautiful childhood.
I work with parents through group courses and private coaching to help them find more ease and joy in their parenting, supporting them as they move from traditional models of parenting towards a relationship that is based on connection and empathy. Trained in non-violent communication, I work in a non-judgemental and empathetic way to hold space for parents to find ways for themselves and their children to get their needs met.
I believe that peaceful parenting can be a truly radical act. More than that, I believe that changing the way we raise children is our only hope if we want a fairer and more just society. The way in which we raise our children can have a profound positive impact on our families, our communities, and our world. Peaceful parenting may be a quiet revolution, taking place in playgrounds rather than protests, but I have no doubt that it is a powerful one.
I look forward to getting to know you better,
- The honesty and ethical integrity of this blog is very important to me.
- I occasionally mention or post links to products that we have been gifted or sent for review; when this is the case I always make it very clear. I only accept items for review that I think will appeal to you, my readers, and I do not accept everything I am offered.
- I sometimes post affiliate links when recommending books and products that Frida and I genuinely love; this is a win-win for for you and for me! These kinds of links cost you nothing, but I get a small percentage of the cost if you decide to buy the item I link to. I do not earn a lot from affiliate links, and what I get helps me to keep creating free content on this blog.
