The Calm Parenting Club

      Supporting you to respond, not react to your children and be the parent you’d like to be.


The Calm Parenting Club is an online parenting membership that helps parents with solving practical parenting problems and helps parents be the parent they’d like to be.   Inside is the support, combined with expert information, that will help you create balance in your family.  


No waiting for answers, get clear simple tips to help you reduce parenting stress.

The membership is for parents of children of any age or ability because children need their parents to be consistent, predictable and able to support them regardless of where they are at in their life.  


You are the change your children need and in the Calm Parenting Club I will help you to be that change.  We will support you so that you can support your child.


Please note that this is a psychotherapeutic led community.  This means that alongside the peer chat, support and invaluable sharing of experiences the information, advise, support and community is therapeutically managed.  



Your child isn’t looking for perfection – they just need you to be ok with who you are. 


This teaches them to be ok with themselves too. 



The Calm Parenting Club is for parents who

  • Want family life to be easier and happier
  • Want to be heard
  • Are supporting their children with a diagnosis, waiting for a diagnosis or querying behaviours and emotions
  • Want to know what to say and do to help when children express big emotions
  • Would like to be calmer
  • Are supporting children through mental health difficulties

How much does it cost?


Getting the support and information to help your family doesn’t have to be costly.

The Calm Parenting Club is €35 a month or €350 for the year (two months free).  This means the expert information, support and guidance is less than a couple of coffees a week.


Become a less shouty, anxious and overwhelmed parent


Here’s what’s involved:


Our own app away from social media

Join our private app where we can chat, ask questions and offer the support you need.  Myself and other members are available to make sure you get the answers you’re looking for.


Weekly calls

Each week there’s a daytime or evening opportunity to talk either through our voice room or zoom. 


Feel Good Friday

Each Friday I do a live video answering questions in-depth with step-by-step guides for helping you through a problem. 


In person meet ups

The handiness of the online community is amazing, but I also arrange in person meet ups in Cork and Dublin where we can hang out, catch up and not be Mums for a little bit!



Monthly Community catch up’s and parenting Q & A’s

A monthly live therapeutic group session to heal, share and solve practical parenting questions.  The Q & A’s are recorded so you never miss out. 



Resources, videos & worksheets

Over 100 videos and a variety of worksheets and resources to support you to parent with less stress.  There’s many step-by-step guides for helping with practical parenting problems such as helping with anxiety, tantrums, managing explosive behaviour, managing guilt and helping children open up.


Bringing in professionals

I bring in the professionals that you’d like to ask questions to – this includes play therapists and therapists specialising in ADHD and Autism.  I bring in therapists based on what members and their families need at that time.  We make being with us work for you.

How much does it cost?


You can start with a free 7 day trial, then after that it’s only €35 per month of €350 (two months free) for the year.  The Calm Parenting Club is more than just a forum.  It’s professional advise and support with the expert knowledge and community to help you be your child’s greatest therapist – all this for less than a couple of coffees a week.

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, 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.
