Peaceful Parenting Coach | The Change Associates

    Tanya Fakhoury is a Peaceful Parenting Coach and creator of the Peaceful Parenting Program that helps children grow into independent and responsible adults with high emotional intelligence. Having studied from the official coaching school of Tony Robbins, she practices a type of coaching called Strategic Intervention that uses the most practical and effective forms of strategic actions and communication, rather than quick fixes, to enhance the parent-child relationship.
    “In order for children to thrive and grow to be resilient and well adapted adults, parents must learn how to apply empathy in their approach to upbringing,” believes Tanya, “There is still such a low level of awareness of basic concepts yet these are easily learnt skills and crucial to help mothers become, peaceful, calm, relaxed and happy”
    The EFG’s of parenting programme has been a labour of love for Tanya. After the birth of her daughter, she experienced a postpartum depression that lead to her seeking help through coaching. Having undergone an emotional transformation, she applied everything she learnt to her own children, attended workshops, professional training and conducted extensive research. She was passionate to help as many families as possible. Initially, she conducted her training in the park for free, teaching nannies and mothers how to apply her techniques. She visited nurseries and schools for further validation and feedback.
    After overwhelming feedback from the people she helped, she felt it had become her life mission and finally took the step to leave the security of her job of nine years. She acquired The Change Associates with her business partner, Rita Baki, to offer the course legitimately, licensed from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, Government of Dubai.
    Tanya has since assisted hundreds of families in becoming more emotionally intelligent, building personal and authentic connections with each client. She has coached and supported them through her five-week programme as well as privately on a one to one basis. She has inspired mothers, fathers, teachers and professional caregivers with her proven solutions and gained their trust with her loyalty and integrity. The majority of her clients being Lebanese, Arabic expats & Emirati’s, Tanya delivers her programme and coaching in both English and Arabic. Culturally in tune with the Arab community, she understands the complexities and cultural issues that occur.
