Speaking topics

Simple from the start

Let's talk simplicity in a world that is not quite so. Especially when adding a baby to the mix. All of the baby stuff, information and opinions can overwhelm the best of us. Join Lynne Newman, occupational therapist and simplicity parenting family life coach, in a discussion around minimizing stress in your home and walk away feeling more calm.


Gray Mothering— there’s more than one way

No one can ever prepare you for the transformation that happens when you become a mother. It’s life-changing to say the least. It can be hard, messy and beautiful. Lynne Newman, holistic occupational therapist and simplicity parenting family life coach will lead us in a conversation on how to ease the stress and overwhelm and find your way while you navigate life as a mother.

Monthly Support Group



It definitely takes more skill, patience and energy to parent a child who is highly sensitive, especially when a parent is too. 

Join us in a conversation to ask questions, learn from others and create some small do-able change within your home and self. We meet six times a year— in Toronto and online.
