All the workshops and courses are designed to rediscover the most authentic, wise and most incredible you. I will show you how to maximise this real self and confidently share it with the world. It is so easy to compare ourselves to other people, wishing that we were better, more talented, more beautiful, intelligent.  Art & Living promotes 'being yourself and loving it'. I believe it is essential to realise, accept and enjoy being who you are, rather than focusing on who and what you are not.

 Bridging the Divide

Mother & Daughter Weekend Workshop 2020

Are you tired of feeling misunderstood?

As our children get older, the relationship shifts from one of dependence to one of independence and .this can be a difficult transition for both parties. New agreements must be made, and new ways to communicate must be formed.

Navigating the mother/daughter relationship can be confusing and overwhelming but also joyful and surprising in the best possible way.

The thing we all want, whether we realise it or not, is to feel heard, supported and loved, and you don’t have to have a broken relationship in order to strengthen it! 

This unique and powerful course is designed to help both mothers and their teenage daughters develop stronger methods of communication by giving them the tools to build more trust and respect on both sides and have fun while doing it!

Over the two days we’ll look at:

Any possible destructive patterns of blame, expectations and assumptions.

Developing self-respect, forgiveness and compassion.

Creating powerful new boundaries,  open up authentic communication, and gain whole new way of supporting each other.

Having an epic time!

This valuable  weekend workshop is designed to allow mothers and daughters to navigate their changing relationship. The focus is on addressing current needs from both sides of the fence, and hearing those needs. Opening the lines of communication and building trust & respect within the relationship.

The final step is building a new vision of the future so that both mother and daughter can flourish as they move forward.

The venue: The Metropolitan Lounge at 'The Tannery' is spacious and accomodating, with handy access to cafes and shopping.

Take home a  workbook packed full of resources, and most importantly, plenty of brilliant communication tools for your relationship - it's great value, two fabulous days with two awesome coaches!

Meet Nenah Milne, who is a uniquely gifted young life coach, who at the age of nineteen is fully able to understand exactly what teenagers today are facing. 

Meet Nancy Barclay, as a teacher, coach and a parent of 4 teens herself, has first-hand experience of the parenting journey, and is very familiar with the challenges that face relationships across the age groups.

Having this combined perspective is what makes this course so powerful.  It means offering the level of support and understanding that both parties need to move forward.

 Join us to build better communication,  increase self worth, and deepen the valuable connections between you both.



Cost:     $60 per pair or $40 for one
