Supporting Parents Naturally

We help you bring calm, balance and nature into whānau weekly routines.

Life is so busy these days with so much structure that there isn’t much time to just go with the flow. Whether its our bush kindy sessions, our workshops or 1:1 or group coaching, we help you to feel more connected to your tamariki and nature. And to focus on what works best for you and your family.

We support whānau through our bush kindy playgroup sessions, parenting talks, workshops and coaching. Supporting parents naturally.

Celia has been working in the education and outdoor sector for over 24 years. Over this time she has worked with children of all ages and stages and has taken a special interest in helping parents to understand how children grow and develop, how to stay connected through challenging behaviours and to advocate for their children in the current education system. 

Celia believes that everyone has the potential to shine and wants to help parents shine a light on themselves and their children. Parenting is not easy and with some practical support, tools and mindset shifting, Celia will help you make that 1-degree shift that is needed, to make the changes to connect deeper with your children and yourself as a parent.


Celia originally studied Outdoor Education which gave her both practical application of working with students and importantly the theory to back it up. Over 24 years of working with students from high school, primary school and pre-school children, this has given her a great understanding of child development and challenging behaviours.

Over this time Celia has coached parents and colleagues informally, discovering that it came naturally for her to coach and help others.

To take the next step, Celia has been working towards deepening her knowledge and skills in coaching over the last year and a half.

She has completed a certificate in breakthrough life coaching and abundance coaching, worked with a variety of clients as part of her training and is nearly finished a year-long Peaceful Parenting Instructor Training course through the Peaceful Parent Institute here in New Zealand.


As your coach, I am committed to you and your family’s journey. I will be present and curious giving you my full attention.

I ask the hard questions and challenge you with kindness and free from judgment. I am here to guide you to courageously move forward in your parenting journey and help you shine.


Celia is amazing. She creates a safe place to support and nurture you through your own journey as a parent. She has great strategies and tools for delving into the experience. I always felt like I was moving at my pace and in control of the process. Her insights and reflections reveal her presence as a coach which felt like she was fully engaged in the process as well. I can highly recommend Celia as a parent coach. Thank you so much.

Fill in the short inquiry form below. Celia aims to respond within 48 hours. 

She will then arrange a 20-minute chat to introduce yourselves to each other. She will share her approach and how the sessions usually run and find out more about you and about your situation.

After the call you can make a decision if Celia is the right person for you and if so she will outline the next steps via email.

Currently, Celia is charging at a reduced rate until her training has finished. This can be discussed on the call and Celia is open to negotiation if the situation requires it.

Fill in the form to make a time for an initial 20-minute chat. 

What People Are Saying

An absolutely valuable session. I went in not expecting much and I have come out with some huge Aha moments and a clear direction. I have so much clarity. Thank you so much Celia, I am so grateful.

Jenny, Parent

Having the privilege of watching my son at Bush Kindy the last couple of terms has reinforced the need for kids to have time for free play and access to nature.
We’re a “time poor” household so the ability to go to a place at an organised time that allows him to explore in a relaxed way and in his own time is invaluable to us.
Vickie, Parent

My son and I love to come to Little Kiwis Nature Play. I feel we are both discovering new things together and we connect and find joy in the unfurling of adventures.

Tamara, Parent
