Everything is recorded and saved so you don’t miss out or need a babysitter to join.

Bringing in professionals

We have a monthly Q and A with our play therapist, Louise.  She is an expert at supporting parents and children with a diagnosis/recognition of their autism/ADHD and who experience and identify with neuro-diverse thinking and behaviours.

Weekly grounding, self-regulation and balancing

You can’t teach your children about regulation their emotions until you are a master of your own.  For our Wednesday Wellbeing, a meditation is posted to help you to be a calmer parent.

How much time will I need?

As little or as much as you would like.  If there’s something specific going on I am there to guide you through, or simply (but profoundly), watch/listen back to the information to keep moving forwards alongside your children.

A look inside the app



The Calm Parenting Club is hosted in an app away from social media.  Inside is where we chat and all the information to support yourself and your family is stored.  It’s easy to use and keeps us connected easily and most importantly, works around your schedule.


The information and support is a mixture of audio, video, PDF and text, so you can absorb what you need in the way that works best for you.

Online Parenting Courses by Bethan O'Riordan Psychotherapist

I am a Psychotherapist which means that I am an expert in supporting people to have the relationships they want to with themselves and those around them.



I’ve worked with suicide and self-harm prevention, mental health difficulties and addiction.  My passion is to see children and parents for who they are, look past behaviours and see how we can create change that works. 

Meet Bethan

Over 10 years ago, I realised I had to learn a whole new way of being.   On the outside things looked fine – I was working, the kids were healthy, but I was unhappy.  I was experiencing really difficult emotions such as anger, rage and anxiety.


I knew that if I didn’t learn what this was about, I wouldn’t be able to parent in the way that I’d like to.  If I didn’t have the skills to manage my emotions, how could I help my children with theirs?


I had to work through all the hardest parts of me; triggers, fears, worries, guilt, shame, anger and anxiety. As a result of that process I now can help my children navigate through their emotional and behavioural needs. And better than that, I found freedom in me.


I look forwards to supporting you to do the same in the Calm Parenting Club.
