We offer listening groups, online retreats, individual counselling and one-off sessions to help provide you with the space you need to work out what is right for you. To ensure these services are accessible to all, we offer some discounted and funded places in our listening groups and counselling sessions.
We recognise that you are doing an amazing job and your best is good enough. Yes there may be challenges, but you are committed to doing the best you can for your family. We believe that you already know the best way to parent your child, and want to help free you up to continue being a great parent.
Mindfulness for Kids
With the right support and skills, children can overcome many difficulties and develop their own inbuilt resourcefulness and resilience.
By giving children the experience of slowing down and using all their senses to engage with the present moment, we believe they can connect with their natural joy, creativity and well-being, which can protect against the onset of mental health problems in their vulnerable teenage years.
Mindfulness workshops are run at our partner schools in our local area, and funded and subsidised places are available for low-income families.

Meet The Team
Becoming a parent was a powerful experience, and I was determined to give my child a better upbringing than my own. Combining my academic background with personal experience, I knew the impact of parenting behaviours on children could significantly affect their whole life. However, I found it was really hard at times, and began to have greater empathy for my own parents. Seeing friends struggle also made me realise challenges in parenthood are completely normal! After receiving parenting support from my community, I started to think about how society can positively affect the experiences of parents and children. Wanting to give something back to the town that helped me, we created Dream Your Future as a community initiative to support parents to discover, trust and follow their own deeper wisdom. I hope our work will lessen the struggles of parents and children, improve community well-being, and contribute to a more generous, open and supportive society.
The Parent Space Coordinator
In my parenting I’ve had times of feeling frazzled and being alone. I have had many moments of not knowing what to do as a parent. I have read so many parenting books and blogs and often times have felt completely overwhelmed with all the information available. I frequently need to take time out - go for a walk, sit quietly or talk and share what is going on with friends. The times I’ve felt most supported in my role of being a mother have been sharing honestly with friends, knowing that I am not alone. Also seeing a counsellor, I have felt a huge shift within me. Simply giving myself time, to talk one to one with a counsellor who will completely listen, has been so incredibly valuable and has enabled me to shed some light on what I am experiencing. It has helped me to have a fresh perspective & re-focus. I recognise that parenting is a wonderful and challenging role and I want to support other mothers. I am delighted to be part of Dream Your Future.
When I became a Mum, my whole world changed. My little family, my world, finally felt complete but I also struggled emotionally and mentally. The self-sufficient, strong person that I once knew myself to be seemed to have disappeared and I realised that I could no longer rely on just me to get through; this whole parenting thing was way too big for that! I swallowed a lot of pride, conceded some independence, and finally let my guard down and asked for help. Fast forward a few years and I feel like I am that strong person once again. Don’t get me wrong, I still ask for help. Why wouldn’t I? Being a parent can be really tough and you can be thrown off course and overwhelmed without warning. Mums and Dads need support. Fact! That is why I am so immensely proud to represent Dream Your Future Families; a company that allows me to be an integral part of the very help that I once received.
Our Mission: Supporting Parents
We believe parents can function at their best when their own needs are met first. We are here to help you work out what your most important needs are and to support you in getting those needs met.
If you are a parent you already know how hard it is to juggle family life, work, and relationships. You have probably already experienced many ups and downs, as well as many successes. There are times though, when those challenges become really overwhelming and you might not know where to turn.
As parents ourselves, we know the sacrifices you make to be able to meet the needs of your children.
Emotional Support for Parents and Kids.
It is our mission to help your family gain the emotional well-being you deserve, so that you can dream big for yourself and for your children, and set about making it happen.
One primary need for parents is making sure your kids are coping, and it can be really hard when they struggle. We are here to support your children as well, helping them find new ways to understand and manage their own worries and emotions.
Dream Your Future is for Families.
