Louise Clarke is a Certified Parent Coach and an Adlerian Parenting Facilitator who works with individuals, couples and families.
For the past 16 years, she has been committed to being the best parent possible to her own three children. She strives to help parents navigate and over-come their challenges through one-on-one coaching, workshops and her uniquely tailored training materials. She is the creator of The Conscious Family Organizer which is a calendar and parent advice centre all in one. It’s more than just a calendar!
She supports and empowers parents with a compassionate and realistic approach to bring about transformational results. There is no ‘cookie cutter’ approach to parenting. What works for one child, might not work for another. What works in one moment, might not work in the next. She works with parents to help them find a way that works for each child in each moment, whatever the moment – that is why it works and that is why it is transformational.
Louise’s passion for helping parents and children thrive, acute listening skills, organizational strengths and ability to find solutions combine perfectly for coaching, educating, inspiring and encouraging parents to raise themselves to be the best they can be.
When not working, Louise can usually be found hiking, biking, golfing, skiing, paddle boarding, painting, cooking and cherishing time spent with her family and friends. Louise lives in Vancouver with her husband, three children and two overly curious Bengal cats – because everyone needs a leopard in their life!
