Meet Sarah

Feeling awkward, are you?

I’m with you! If you’re feeling overwhelmed or even guilty because you’re having trouble talking with your child about sexuality, sex, or consent, you’re not alone. Most of us grew up in homes with adults who were uncomfortable having “the talk,” and so we learnt to feel awkward about it, too.

For the past 5 years, I’ve been helping parents overcome the awkward.

They’ve learnt to start conversations, answer questions, stay connected with their kids as they grow, and provide a culture of openness and acceptance at home. Their kids have grown in confidence and self-respect, and they see their parents as their go-to resource when they need guidance.

Most parents need support as their children experience puberty and mature into adulthood. I can help!

Sarah’s skill, I think, is giving parents permission to try, and to make mistakes. Most of us are a bit nervous about having these conversations but the important thing is that we try, that we open up a dialogue.
