We have been running Parent Gym at Kensington for a number of years now. The programme has transformed the lives of countless families. The approach is clear and well-structured.

I really enjoyed the sessions and these changed a lot of what I did before….. I shouted, I didn’t listen to my children and there was a lot wrong in our house. My son refused to do his homework. Now I am less stressed, my son does his homework on time, my daughter plays with her brother which never happened before. I am so proud of what we have achieved and so happy.
