Michael Larson Winnipeg, Manitoba
Family Coach, Life Coach, Relationship Coach
WHAT I DO:
I teach parents how to effectively parent, rather than emotionally parent. I help parents to effectively communicate and re-connect with their children to re-build the relationship.
WHO I WORK WITH:
I work with Parents who are having problems and issues with their children and are feeling stressed out.
• Behavior problems: effective ways to address issues such as yelling, arguing, aggression, sibling rivalry, and defiance.
• Stress-related parenting issues: Find ways to take care of yourself and manage your stress.
• Best parenting practices: Assist you in following through with research-based best practices in regards to issues such as homework, electronics, and exercise.
• Developmental activities: Strategies that support your child’s physical, emotional, and social development.
• Parenting during transition or crisis: Help you be the best parent you can during a crisis or hardship, such as divorce or loss of a loved one.
• Parenting questions: Answer a variety of questions regarding best parenting practices.
• Practical problems: Help you create a plan to address childcare issues or educational problems.
WHY IT WORKS:
I have developed a masterful 12-week Powerful Parenting Program that will teach you how to effectively parent instead of emotionally parent.
This program teaches you how to deal with yelling, fighting, disrespect, and struggles with your children. Parenting is hard, and my strategies are proven to make it easier.
You will have weekly calls with me as well as daily email support, so we can focus on the specific problems or issues you are having and then you can remove them.

The twelve-week effective parenting program with Michael is a very well-designed program that offers the help, guidance, and tools necessary with an individualized approach, to enhance your parenting strategies that result in a more fulfilling and healthy relationship between you and your child. At the time I began Michaels program, I was not sure what to expect, the only thing I was sure of was that I was desperate for help and change, and his program seemed like the best way for me to achieve both help and positive change. Michael is really great at being supportive and understanding, while also helping you hold up the mirror in order to identify the issues, their root causes, your role as a parent, and what you can do to directly impact the situation. Holding up the mirror can be very difficult and emotionally triggering, but one thing that got me through was the one thing I feel that sets Michael apart from other counsellors. Michael consistently offered unparalleled accessibility, no matter the time or day, whether you were between sessions or not, I could also reach out with a struggle in need of advice or just to simply ask a question and he would always respond with the right guidance. Michael not only gives you the tools to improve your situation, but he is with you every step of the way in helping you implement them. Michael offers a safe place to be honest and vulnerable, and always helps you to feel like you are not alone in what you are going through as a parent. Michael is the definition of what a good and effective counsellor should be, because he lives what he says in that you are genuinely working together as a team. I am truly grateful for working with Michael and his effective parenting program, as I feel my family and I would not have made the progress we have and continue to make without all of his guidance, knowledge, and support. I highly recommend taking Michaels twelve-week effective parenting program if you are ready to become an effective parent and willing to put in the hard yet very rewarding work to get there.JH
