Taking the STRUGGLE Out of Play
Does your heart sink when your child asks you to "Play with me!"?
Do you feel sleepy all of a sudden? Bored? That you suddenly want to start tidying? Or that you just can't face another minute of doing something sooooo mindless?
Even though you deeply love your child and know it's what you "should" be doing....
....it's still really, really hard to find it within yourself to play.
If that's you, we're so glad you're here. You're in the right place.
Play is the thing that parents struggle with the most. You're not alone.
It's why we have created The Play Collective. We're here to help you take the struggle out of play. You don't need to figure things out on your own any more.
Help you and your family effortlessly THRIVE & have FUN together - from toddlers through to teens!
We start 1 April 2023
Highly, highly recommend working with Helena. She literally changed my life with my son. I started working with her when he was around 4. He's now 14!
I can't thank her enough for the change in perspective she gave me which has resulted in a connected, awesome relationship with my son and a much more relaxed me.
Chiara has helped me demystify play while untangling my resistance to it.
I felt so daunted by the idea of playing anything with my kids and I have loved her enthusiasm and guidance from the get go.
I can now call myself a FUN MUM!
Here's What's Waiting For You Inside The Play Collective for 6 Weeks
What We'll Be Covering Each Week
Your greatest desires for you and your family
When life feels hard, so does parenting and there's no way you could be playful. So let's tap into what you really want for you and your family and create the life you actually want to live.
If you don't yet know, don't worry - we've got you and will take you through a process to help you gain clarity and reclaim the joy in your parenting and life.
Because when you feel that, play comes naturally.
Looking at your beliefs, fears & ways you sabotage
What's getting in the way of you being playful? There's always good reasons why you're finding it hard and chances are they're from your own childhood.
So let's identify them, give them the attention they deserve and you'll notice how they'll start to shift.
The heaviness will lift and you'll reconnect with your confident, playful, authentic self.
Lots of games for all occasions
Taking the brain power out of play because it can be hard to think of play in the heat of the moment. So we're looking forward to sharing a ton of simple, fun and often hilarious games you can play with your child. You are all going to love them (including you!).
You'll learn games that are good all-rounders, as well as situation-specific gems. And they'll be easy to access for quick inspiration.
The more you dive into these, the more you'll see your child shift from grumpy & difficult, to delightful and easy.
Integrating play with day to day practicalities
Now you're shifting your internal fears and sabotages, and you have a plethora of games to choose from, this module will show you how to apply them to common specific issues.
You can use play so effectively for challenges such as:
- aggressive behaviour
- separation anxiety
- new baby
- sibling rivalry
- picky eating
- teeth brushing
- getting dressed
- repairing after shouting
This program will help you with the practicalities of everyday life.
What to do with your feelings
How do you maintain a playful connection with your child? By taking care of yourself. We'll show you how you can feel resourced enough on an ongoing basis to want to connect and play with your child, even when times are tough.
And not only that, you'll get to experience that level of support too and help you to set it up so that you have it on an ongoing basis, after the program ends.
Fine tuning into confidence
You can start off all inspired and taking action and seeing amazing results. And then a curve ball comes along such as criticism from your MIL, or a new challenging behaviour from your child, or your partner refusing to participate in this playful way of parenting.
Whatever comes up, we're on hand to help, so that by the end of these 6 weeks, you'll feel confident and resourced to be the playful parent you want to be.
You will gain inspiration, strategies & support that are grounded in real life, are highly practical, easy and really work!
I'm an Aware Parenting Instructor and a Field Facilitator and have a 16 year old and 19 year old. I have loved how Aware Parenting taught me that rupture in relationship is inevitable but that repair is always available and deeply reparative.
Attachment Play is an underrated tool for this as it gives us a way to deeply apologise, restore connection, foster forgiveness and recalibrate our relationships. This concept has helped me alleviate shame and guilt and has allowed me to grow through healing my own blind spots and traumas.
I'm an Aware Parenting Instructor, a Hand in Hand Parenting by Connection Instructor, and a Life Coach, with over 13 years experience supporting parents.
I wasn't a naturally playful mum. I didn't realise I was "allowed" to be! And then I would often rather do anything else but sit down and play with my daughter. Anything!
And yet I've learned how to play. I've worked through my inner fears and triggers to be able to bring playfulness as my general way of being with my kids (I still get annoyed though sometimes!). It's been one of the greatest gifts I've given my 14 & 8 year old children.
"Chiara had me laughing so hard with my three year old the other day after she gave me fantastic play ideas! I’ve since noticed such a change in her.
I felt so seen and heard. I highly recommend her guidance to anyone seeking help on their parenting journey."

I'm so grateful to have Helena in my life. She helps me be the mum I want to be."
