Parenting, unschooling and spiritual mentoring
Is this your situation?
You have a strong desire to live peacefully with your children and you are willing to look within yourself to get clear of old patterns and beliefs that no longer serve you. You don’t struggle with your children all the time, but you are hitting a few challenges. It might be something like …….
❧ Your child is doing something that is driving you crazy. It might be swearing, hitting, lots of screen time and gaming, eating junk food, or
❧ You’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed and worried and don’t know how you are ever going to relax, or
❧ You have trouble dealing with the intense meltdowns or anxieties of your child, or
❧ You have worries about your child’s learning and you’d like some support around unschooling or home education, or
❧ You’re noticing a pattern of self-judgment and a belief that you’re not ‘good enough’ at this parenting thing, or
❧ You’re on a roller coaster of your own emotional reactions; you yell and loose your shit, you issue threats and you don’t know how to stop.
I know that you’re not looking for generic parenting advice. You want insights from someone who’s been in a similar situation and who can help you to see the way forward with confidence. Someone who has direct experience in walking the conscious parenting or unschooling path.
You want help to find unique solutions for your own unique family.
I mentor parents who want to live joyfully and respectfully with their children and would like a little help getting there.
What is mentoring?
Mentoring is not the same as coaching. I’m not trying to make you a better parent or push you towards certain goals. This is not about fixing, healing or improving you.
I’m offering my experience and my loving attention. I’m a good listener. I’m also happy to share the skills I have learned that have helped make my own parenting journey more joyful. I’m completely open about the challenges that I’ve faced and the steps I have taken to get through them.
I can help you pinpoint the the cause of your stress and guide you through a process to clear your mind and dissolve your worries. I’m an expert in uncovering the beliefs (that you may not even know you have) that are no longer serving you. I can help you find your inner calm and see the way forward.
Each mentoring session is customized to what you need and how I can best serve you.

Read what my clients have been saying:
“I originally came to Freya with what felt like a mountain of worries about my pre-teen son. I felt like a failure as a parent due to his apparent lack of interest in anything that wasn’t connected with screens, gaming or movies. I was worried about his diet, his unwillingness to engage in (what I thought of at the time as) “healthier” activities like reading, regular outdoor exercise with his friends, eating vegetables and completely avoiding junk food. Yes, apparently I really thought he should be some kind of 1950s kids living before the invention of screens, sugar and supermarkets. It seems quite funny now but at the time I saw all these things as huge serious problems that needed huge solutions. Ass a result my mind and body were absolutely tied up in knots trying to figure everything out and I was miserable and in emotional and physical pain.
Now I’ve had a few sessions with Freya, I see things very differently. This has happened in several ways. Freya brings such wonderful warmth, humour and wisdom to our sessions and I think she brings out the best in me. It’s hard to describe but we always end up having such beautiful, collaborative and just plain interesting conversations and our discussions have become a source of great comfort, joy and relaxed exploration for me. I think this is because Freya isn’t “just” a coach. She has walked the exact walk of the kind of things I have experienced as a mum, and normalises my experience by openly sharing her own.
It is an amazing journey and I am so happy I met Freya all those months ago.” — Hilary
Freya’s support and guidance has inspired me in many ways. She has helped me to open up to a world I didn’t know existed, and shown me how to bring Peace, Joy and Freedom into my life. Her words always point directly to what I am wanting to hear. Such a wise soul. — Leisa
Freya has intuitively known how to guide me to reconnect with my own personal experience of pure love and joy. No matter what’s been happening in my life or what inner turbulence I’ve been experiencing, she has without fail, led my awareness back to my heart space. — Jodie
Freya has only ever seen the true me, not the drama, stress, anger, fear and situations. She has always been able to speak to me, directly past all that other stuff to show me how to wade through it and find what the True me wants and needs. From doing this with her I have come to place where I am stronger, well, following my joys, my relationships have improved with my children and husband. I am no longer a slave to my built up walls of protection from the ‘world’, I no longer go to bed with a anxiety and constant worry. I am free to be me, because I have had all I needed within me all along… Freya has helped me see that. — Keely
I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to meet Freya via her online consultations. Freya is compassionate, non-judgmental and incredible knowledgeable about supporting children with unschooling and conscious parenting. She is also honest and open about her own experiences. There is no fakeness or pretense when talking to Freya. I particularly love the way Freya challenges me and offers alternative viewpoints. My online sessions with Freya have been extremely beneficial for my own personal growth as a parent and I always feel wonderful and positive after talking to her. I highly recommend Freya for mentoring, guidance or support.
Food/screen time/homework & grades/exercise – now that I have let go of controlling my children I feel a lot more peaceful/accepting on the inside and I’m finding our relationship has changed dramatically. They are starting to come towards me more for connection as they’re adjusting to me ‘letting go of control’. They are more willing to respond with kindness to my request for help around the house as I’m not often going into their bedrooms interrogating them about how much food/screen/exercise/homework they have done. When I’m away from them I’m not mulling over how much screen time or ‘junk’ food have they had while I was away. I’m noticing that they are sometimes looking to regulate themselves rather than me trying to regulate them. It’s still early days but I ultimate goal is that my children will become fully self regulated and not be dependent on me to do it for them. Thank you Freya for supporting me to turn my whole concept of parenting around – I feel it has set us all free!!!
Freya supported and guided me on my way of becoming a more peaceful human being and better mum. Thanks to Freya my relationship with myself improved and I became the mum I always wanted to be. To be able to question all my thoughts became one of the most important tools I have in my life. Freya’s guidance was extremely important, especially at the beginning where on my own I could hardly identify any thoughts I had, but she could pick them up right away. She helped me understand how they had influenced my feelings and reactions. I learned that by changing my thoughts I can change my life. I couldn’t be who I am today without Freya – she really brought a lot of awareness into my life and provided me with a spiritual guidance when I needed it.
I would recommend Freya to anyone who is ready to improve their life through self-inquiry and all parents who want to become the best parents for their children.

Unschooling is a type of home education that is based on following the interests of the child. Parents that support an unschooling approach do not force their child to learn according to the system of defined by the school curriculum. Children are free to learn how, when and what they choose with the support and…
The main topic that I’ve been thinking about for the last month is the effect of repressed childhood anger on relationships, especially with our children. Many people believe that they were traumatised by an angry parent and they worry about getting angry at their own children. I know many mothers who believe that they have…
