Child relationship coaching for parents

Happy Children



The Edinburgh Parent Centre, founded by Frances Byatt-Smith, has been helping and supporting parents in the Edinburgh community for over a decade now.  


Frances holds a degree in Psychology (BA Hons.) and can draw upon over 25 years' hands-on experience working alongside families - first for the NHS Lothian as a Health Visitor, and then as a private practitioner. This is in addition to her own personal experiences of raising children.


Here at the Edinburgh Parent Centre, we are committed to providing a holistic approach to each parent because each parent and their circumstances can be very different.  We are also extremely passionate about helping parents understand their child's emotional development and enabling them to have a positive experience of parenthood.


We offer a wide range of tailored courses for parents - including one-to-one sessions and internet sessions as well as emotional coaching for children directly.

Group courses for groups of parents wishing to attend a course together can also be arranged.
