What is Circle of Security Parenting ®

Children don’t come with instruction manuals. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security Parenting ® program is an evidence-based parenting program, created from decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. Circle of Security parenting ® provides a user-friendly map for understanding children’s emotional needs.

As a trained Circle of Security ® registered parent educator, I provide Circle of Security in an eight-week format. This can be in a group or individual structure. A group format allows for a very rich experience, as I believe all caregivers have wisdom to share. However, the information can also be provided in an individual format (or with a co-parent).


These are the learning objectives of the program:

  • Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read their emotional cues
  • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of your child’s self esteem
  • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure
