Here is a little bit more about the ‘Help me to Parent’ team are and what they do


Help Me To Parent Ltd was launched in October 2007. The two founding directors had attended a parenting course and were so impressed with the skills they learned, they passionately believed that every parent should have the opportunity to do a course such as this. Since establishing the company, the directors have reviewed and researched parenting courses and literature. During this time they discussed various aspects of parenting and parenting training with a number of professionals in the area of mental health and child/youth development.

In late 2016 Mary and Allen of CA Coaching came on board, bringing with them a range of exciting new programmes to add to the Help Me To Parent portfolio. All of the programmes/courses offered by Help Me To Parent are tried and tested and have received the seal of approval from the hundreds of families we have worked with over the years.

Denise O’Donoghue
A passion for good food, coupled with a deep belief in its power as a method for restoring and preserving health, is my daily inspiration at FooDee. I am a qualified Nutrition & Health Coaching (BTEC Adv Diploma) and final year Nutritional Therapy student with the IINH, awarding body Crossfields Institute plus a member of NTOI.

Nutrition & Health Coach bridges the gap between possessing information and doing…

I offer One-to-one coaching, 4 weeks Nutrition Programmes and workshops/talks. In my one-to-ones I think outside the box offering advice in unconventional ways. I do things like cupboard cleanse, walk and talk, shopping experience and practical recipes. My recommendations are based on the individual, matching expectation and goals with ability to achieve.

My food philosophy is straightforward – eat a variety of SIMPLE, REAL, WHOLEFOODS. Food should be celebrated and I encourage people to enjoy eating without a sense of loss or deprivation, and to appreciate the true tastes of good food. My rounded philosophy borrows from many disciplines including mental wellbeing, sports and exercise, mindfulness, nutrition, and self-care.
