“A beautiful course, useful, clear and thought provoking.”

“If you are thinking about doing this course, take the plunge. It is just lovely, and takes into consideration the whole family.”

“Eloise’s course, Rhythm in the Home, is so much more then just an online course. She really helped me feel so supported and cared for during the whole course. It’s so evident how much she cares for her clients and how much thought she puts into everything she does. I would highly recommend this course to anyone. Especially anyone who is feeling like they just don’t know where to start. I felt this course was like counselling for me, I learned so much about what I want out of life (things that seem very clear now, that I just didn’t know how to make sense of before this course). The questions Eloise asks in her workbooks really helped me define not only what I want for my daughter, but what I want for myself. Definitely 10 out of 10!”

“I found Eloise’s fabulous commentary, reflections and material really thought provoking. I’m looking forward to building our new family rhythm.”

“Insightful, thought-provoking content. Eloise has a wonderful passion for promoting peaceful, engaged parenting. Rhythm in the Home encourages you to explore the values which will help shape your actions and give you the confidence to parent with intention. I look forward to starting A Beautiful Childhood in the New Year. Thank you Eloise.”

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for the course. Your approach is so thoughtful, inclusive and non-judgemental. I found it incredibly helpful to stop and really think deeply about our values, about what our lives look like and why, and about creating a rhythm that prioritises what’s actually important to us. I do a fair amount of thinking and reading about parenting and child development but there was something about doing the course which gave me pause to really reflect. I looked forward to your videos each week and found your q&a sessions as helpful as the main inputs. I love the way you always go deeper to get to the root of our parenting challenges.  Watching the videos and working through the prompts felt like self-care rather than a chore! Partly because I miss experiencing the personal growth that comes from study, but it was also being a part of a community of like minded people and realising that I’m not alone and that my struggles are so very normal. There’s no such thing as perfect and we are all growing, all the time.”

“I wanted to thank you, I wasn’t sure whether the course would help given that my kids are older and in school but it’s been absolutely amazing. Just what we needed frankly. It has also encouraged me to slow down a lot, and do less on any given day. And think about why we do things and whether they really need to be done. Also morning time has been such a joy. I have two very different children but it’s been a lovely time of bonding and discovery for us as a family. I feel like it’s something we really needed, we just didn’t know it! So thank you!”

“I wanted to send you some feedback and say thank you – it’s been such a helpful and inspiring experience for me. I find that the online world can be so full of lovely ideas for parenting and family life that it’s a bit overwhelming and hard to know where to begin. That’s why the structure of the course was so brilliant- by focusing on our own family values it really helped me to be more grounded, and to recognise which ideas would be helpful to us and which would just add to the overwhelm. The workbooks were just beautiful to look at and I’m sure I’ll look back at them again and again as our family life shifts and changes. Through doing the course I was able to recognise that our daily rhythm was already strong in lots of ways. We’ve strengthened our weekly rhythm to include regular focused space for art, music and nature walks – and I feel so much better knowing that these things are now priorities in our days, not just squeezed in around all the other ‘stuff’ that can all to easily fill our time. The course also helped me to develop a rhythm around cooking and cleaning, and it feels like this has freed up so much headspace as well as allowing me to use my precious bits of time to myself for more nurturing things. Thank you so much again! I’ve loved being part of the first course.”

“This course was a life changer. It’s been a big blessing to us as a family and my sanity as a mother. It’s so nice to have someone to put this together so we as mothers are not so frazzled researching so many different sources. Thanks for your hard work and for sharing your light with us!”

“I think this course is great – it has encouraged me to make space not just to think about our rhythms, and what is important for my family, but also what is important for my wellbeing too. I am profoundly grateful for the opportunities this course has provided me, just at the time I needed it.”

“I have found the course really useful and it has forced me to sit down and think about what is important to me/our family. We haven’t changed too much yet but I feel ready to in a few days when we get home (we are away at the moment). It has made me recognise the rhythms we do have too and given me a bit more confidence that I’m doing ok parenting-wise! Thanks Eloise for running the course.”

“I’m really enjoying the course – it’s so beautifully crafted and your passion and knowledge and integrity shine through.”

“I just want to thank you so much! You have made me feel so supported and cared for during this course so far. It’s so evident how much you care about us all on this journey. I’ve started to enjoy life so much more and am really starting to feel a sense of calm around everything. Thank you thank you thank you!”

“I’ve found the course really useful. It has helped a lot in clarifying our family values and what we place an emphasis on doing each week. Having daily rhythms and a meal plan has really reduced my ‘mental load’ – yes, I still have to plan things but it doesn’t seem to be as stressful or overwhelming as it was before. I’m also trying to use my time more mindfully, reading or writing or doing something creative during nap time or evenings. I’ve so enjoyed this course and felt very supported by a like minded and kind group of people.”

“The course has been great, it’s nice to take stock of things. I think some of that big picture stuff gets thought of during pregnancy then promptly forgotten once the realities of a newborn hit! It’s been nice to reflect a year on, and to re consider our aspirations so we can make some conscious decisions to get back on track. It’s been inspiring, thank you.”

“I’ve made quite a few little changes so far. A song at nap time, a candle at dinner time, using my Grandparent’s old wooden perpetual calendar, which we change each day at breakfast time. I also decided that baking together is quite important to me, so Tuesday afternoons are our baking time now. I used to think of baking together as a special thing that we did on special occasions but now I realise that because it’s special we should be doing it all the time! I definitely feel calmer without having to constantly think “what are we doing next/today?” Interestingly, my daughter found my workbooks and notes and asked about them. I’d written ideas for dinnertime. She was really keen to help with laying the table and what the course is all about. It’s really helping, thank you!”

“We took the course as part of preparing for our eldest daughter starting school – a way to help the mornings as my husband would be taking her to school and they would need to leave 45 minutes earlier than I did when I walked her to her Montessori pre-school, and to be make sure her week wasn’t overwhelmed. The course was this and more – it helped the morning routine immeasurably and we felt we had the skills and communication between us to adjust and tweak in order to have a calm getting ready period as we all got ready for the day. It helped give me the confidence to say no to after school play dates as our daughter needed some free play at home and they eat and go to bed relatively early. It also sparked insightful conversations between my husband and I about our childhoods and aims / focus for our parenting and children, that are quite different from our own upbringing. So thank you. I know we are not the only family that you and your work have made a positive impact on.”

“The course has really been fantastic for me in analysing the parts of our days that cause stress and working on solutions which make things run for smoothly for all of us. It has also been great for us to think about creating more of a family culture and thinking about the way we celebrate the seasons. I have become much more organised , and I have also written up some list of seasonal activities/rituals that I would like us to do each year to mark the changing seasons and to become part of our own family ‘culture’.”

“I’m so pleased that I took this course just at the point where my daughter is transitioning from baby to toddler. I’m trying to build in gentle rhythms to each day so she knows what to expect. Thanks so much Eloise. It’s been a great opportunity to reflect and plan and lovely to meet these other great mums!”

“Thanks, Eloise, for continually inspiring me to be a more mindful parent–without ever making me feel bad about how I’m currently doing it!”

“This course is just magic, as is Eloise.”
