Welcome to Circle of Security -

a different kind of

parenting program.

Whether you are a parent with a child who challenges you, you have a really great kid and you want to deepen your connection, or you are a new parent seeking to raise a securely attached child, the Circle of Security Parenting Program will help you discover how to connect with your child, re-connect with your teenager, or deepen the existing great relationship you already have.


Relationships are about connection. This parenting program is unlike any you have been involved in before. Behaviour CAN be managed without punishment. Children can do what they're asked the first time and parents can get through a day without yelling.

What is Circle of Security Parenting ?

Circle of Security® Parenting™ is a parent-reflection program offering the core components of the evidence-based and internationally acclaimed Circle of Security program.


Founders of the Circle of Security have worked together since 1985 and were friends for a decade before that, and it was this shared experience that led to the creation of this ground breaking program.


Co-parenting for Your Kids is proud to be able to bring you the Circle of Security as a 2 session online group training.


Discover how to create a secure attachment with your child which will lead to a deeper connection and greater ability to manage problematic behaviour.


The program presents video examples of secure and problematic parent/child interaction, healthy options in care giving, and animated graphics designed to clarify principles central to Circle of Security. This Parenting Program implements decades of attachment research in an accessible step-by-step process for use in group setting.

Whether you're a new parent wishing to do the very best you can for your newborn, you've a strong willed and headstrong wild-child-toddler, a primary school aged child who seems to get more difficult to manage each day, or a teenager you're worried will stray so far away from you that you'll no longer have any influence over them at all, there's something for each of us in the Circle of Security Parenting Program. As an experienced facilitator, Kirsty Petersen will support you to understand secure attachment so you can enjoy deeper connections with your kids.

Small Group, 2 sessions
Sometimes it's really helpful to attend a workshop where you can talk with other parents about your struggles and problem behaviours. 

This program has a maximum of 12 participants and runs as 2 sessions over 2 weeks. The workshop is held on week nights, during school hours and also on the weekends.

It can be difficult to tell your story and your privacy will be respected if you'd rather not share.  There are immeasurable benefits to discovering you're not alone in your journey.
Our children are the people who are most important to us.  

The small group workshop is 2 sessions with one low fee of $270.

Kirsty Petersen – Circle of Security Parenting Program Facilitator, Family Mediator, Conflict Coach, Author and best of all - "Mum!"

Your Circle of Security Parenting Program Facilitator
I have been practising Circle of Security parenting program principles for many years.  As an experienced program facilitator, I support families all over the world, to deepen their connection with their children and change the way they manage problematic and challenging behaviour.

It doesn't matter if your child is newly born, or well into their teens, whether you're here because of your first child or your youngest child, the Circle of Security Parenting Program will change the way you interact and engage with all your children - even if they're already great kids!

Not only have I seen this program absolutely change the relationship between many parents and children, I am constantly in awe of how it changes the relationship I have with my own children. 

Past attendees have said...

I attended a Circle of Security Parenting Workshop facilitated by Kirsty.  It was worth making the time to come to all three sessions because they were all so different.  The way I see my children's behaviour has totally changed.  The workshop has helped me understand so many things - and not just about my children! 
I have had periods in the last few weeks where there were no meltdowns and I haven't EVER had a parenting relationship with my child like the one I have now.  I know it will only improve with the coaching I am doing with Kirsty.
She is brilliant and I am so grateful I attended this workshop.  Thank you Kirsty!
