How do you help your child with overweight, when you have your own struggles with weight?


And how do you do it if you have never had the struggle?


You are not supposed to know how to do this.


Imagine when you can... stop feeling like you have failed, end the food fights, not worry about your child's relationship with food.

I empower parents of overweight children to build healthier families. Starting from a place of guilt, frustration and feeling that they have failed their children, we work on creating new patterns so the parent builds confidence in becoming a role model for the whole family. 

We will get curious, understand your family, your concerns, your own journey, and your desire to lead your family to a better relationship with food and each other.

And you will grow more connected to your family, address your own struggles, and realize the power of possibility as your family gets healthier, together.

And it will be FUN, because I don’t do it if it isn’t.

Why Coaching for Parents?

So much focus has been placed upon the individual child struggling with overweight. 

Tip sheets and prescriptions telling people what to do leaves families confused, frustrated and at odds. It treats one child different from the others. It pushes us to take actions without questioning: is this realistic for my family? Is it consistent with what I believe? With how I am raising my children? Do I see this as a real option for my family?

Working exclusively with the child overlooks the role of the parent to set the tone and lead the family to health. It also overlooks a big part: we are a product of the home environment - what we have been taught to believe and practice. Lasting changes require the input of an adult to understand and be a guide to change. Do not outsource that.

Coaching is a process of developing confidence, building habits on purpose, walking together through what it takes to make lasting changes for the whole family. Even better, the skills you learn will apply to your life, and for all of your family members. Investing in the parent means investing in the health of the whole family.

-Sara, UK

"Wendy has a very warm, friendly and comforting presence. She has an open mind and asks questions to stimulate introspective thoughts. Her smile and laugh are contagious!"
