Meet Deb Woods
Hi, I’m Deb Woods. I have always loved working with children and families, which is why I studied Child Development and Education when I did my Bachelor of Science through the Open University in England.
Extensive parent coaching experience
I have worked extensively with families and children since starting as a Family Day Care Provider many years ago. As well as a Child Care Centre Director, I was also the Coordinator of the Child and Parent Centre in Carey Park. This fantastic position allowed me to work with families and children from pre-birth to age eight.
Accredited parenting program facilitator
The facilitation training I’m accredited to deliver includes:
- Bringing Up Great Kids (suite of programs)
- Bringing Up Great Adolescents
- The Incredible Years (7 programs)
- Tuning in to Kids®
- Dads Tuning in to Kids™
- Tuning in to Teens™
- Circle of Security® Parenting™
- Circle of Security® Parenting Masterclass (in the classroom)
- Protective Behaviours (Universal Plus)
I’m so lucky to have two wonderful sons – now in their 20s – who have given me plenty of experience in facilitating parenting programs. I understand first hand how challenging it can be to be a parent, which is why I’m passionate about supporting families in any way I can.
Founder of parenting ways
My consulting business, Parenting Ways, offers support for parents with children of all ages, whether you’re struggling with self-regulating emotions, coping with teenage angst or school readiness. I know that every family is different, so I tailor my evidence-based programs to meet your specific needs.
