Chris uses a mix of positive neuroplasticity exercises, mindfulness based meditation practices and positive psychology strategies to explore and improve challenges in relationship dynamics from the inside out. Chris Phillips helped me through one of the most difficult years in my parenting. She did it with high expertise, professionalism and compassion for both myself and my son. ​ I cannot commend her skills highly enough. She is the go-to person for anyone who needs sane and expert advice on managing difficult relationships, particularly in the ups and downs of parenting.

– Professor Catharine Lumby

Working with Chris on improving my relationships with both my teenage daughter and my early 20’s son was life changing. It worked so well and so quickly that I am now trying the positive psychology system in other areas of my life.

When I started with Chris, I rated the communication with my daughter at ‪2/10. We could barely look at each other much less have a productive conversation. Within a week I noticed I actually felt differently towards her. I started to expect the best from my daughter … and to my delight I started to get it. Within 2 weeks I was rating the communication at ‪8/10.
With Chris’s expert guidance and just the right challenges and encouragement at just the right times it went from being the thing I most wanted to improve in my life to the relationship I cherish most.

Reprogramming the neural pathways can create a mighty powerful force. That is very obvious to me. I’m glad I had Chris to simplify the exercises, guide, and harness that force with me along the way.
