Facilitate the learning of deeply nurturing human practices

Nurture specialist consultants have a width and breadth of knowledge of what human beings need to feel connected and nurtured. Using the science of the human brain and our psychology we can teach ancient practices passed within communities for generations before the changing of our societies. The best part is that we insist upon evidence and so base the practices we teach on scientifically sound research.

You will be able to support and educate parents on all forms of nurturing touch, including infant massage (and beyond) for relief, development, connection and stimulation. But this isn’t all. You will bring practices of relaxation, regulation of the mind, containment of the body and movement and position (sometimes called yoga) of the body together to create a truly nurturing experience.

With this knowledge you will offer bespoke consultations to educate and support parents in nurturing their families, and a programme of workshops and courses under the NurtureCalm brand (with membership of the community). These include:
