About Soila


My name is Soila, and I’m the founder of Parenting Lives, a place where you can find, not only great parenting tools, tactics and strategies but also reassurance and motivation as you parent your 0 – 12-year-old.

I have over 20 years experience in working with children, young people and families.

As a Developmental Psychologist holding two degrees,  (BSc (Hons) and an MSc), an accreditation as a Triple P Practitioner (Positive Parenting Program – levels 2 and 3) and a certified Trauma consultant, I’m certain that I can help you.

I am also a trained Family Mediator.  I hold a bunch of other qualifications and training which I will be more than happy to share with you if you want to, all of which put together, make me quite qualified to supervise contact between you and your child or children.

At Parenting Lives, I work on both a one-to-one basis (Monday – Saturday) and also run monthly group workshops.  Client work can be done over Skype too as many of my regular clients live outside London, where I am based.

If you’re in search of supervised contact or have another concern or question, please do get in touch.

There is no such a thing as too small a problem. If it bothers you, then it’s important.  Sometimes it takes but a brief chat to find workable and practical solutions to an enduring problem.

So, do contact me and we can take it from there – 07850 85 60 66 or soila@parentinglives.co.uk

Oh, before I forget, I am a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society, founding editor of The Divorce Magazine and creator of the 4.7/5 rated online course Parenting after Separation.
