This teaches them to be ok with themselves too.

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 topic to enhance your skills for being calm and creating change

Each week we explore a topic related to parenting and wellbeing.  This helps you to develop and meet your needs alongside your child’s.  Each week you are supported to make a plan for creating change and making what’s hard easier.

Live calls

Each month, there’s a daytime or evening opportunity to ask questions and get support at a live online call.  

Answering your questions

Each week I do a live video answering questions in-depth with step-by-step guides for helping you through a problem.  These are saved in out app so you can watch back at anytime. 

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!



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

We have monthly clinics with a play therapist, psychologist and myself who is a psychotherapist.  The supports you need are wrapped around your family and no-one is left out – you are the most important person in your family.

Weekly grounding, self-regulation and balancing

You can’t teach your children about regulation their emotions until you are a master of your own.  Each week our Psychologist will take you through a short meditation (under 5 minutes) that you can practice in your daily life to help you create balance and manage what’s difficult.

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.

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.
