“I have had a long friendship with Nathalie from when I met her and her family in London. I love her passionate attitude to her work, and how helping make families lives better makes her shine. “
I had been following Easy Peasy Kids Facebook page for sometime and have always enjoyed and related to your informative snippets. When I was starting to feel my relationship with my oldest child (8) was getting a few cracks in it – yes I did dread some days before they had even begun due to my judging her as being difficult – I had a light bulb moment and thought ‘Let’s see if Nathalie does any consultancy work!’ And thankfully you do!! Your compassion, knowledge, understanding, reassurance…. as well as some wonderful advice and strategies have turned our situation around. I feel connected to my oldest again!!! I am incredibly positive about managing any future ups and downs, as more than anything you have helped me refine how to parent across the multitude of ages of my kids. I cannot thank you enough and would highly recommend your services to anybody who is just feeling like parenting has become a bit of a battle amongst all the love in the world!
We asked Nathalie for some advice on how to improve our parenting of our (then) three and a half year old, especially in light of the fact a little brother had newly arrived. Nathalie’s advice was invaluable and changed some of the things we were doing and reinforced others. Without doubt Nathalie’s informed advice improved the way we parent. Her advice is based in experience and is easy to implement….though like any big change, it took time to cement in to place. On a personal level, Nathalie is incredibly giving and approachable. We are so pleased to have met Nathalie and to have woven her care and advice into the fabric of our family.
Mrs C, South Australia
“My 11 year old daughter was having big social issues at school, feeling like she wasn’t fitting in and being bullied. She was up till late every night, night after night, debriefing on the day’s events and school was very sad for her. It was really affecting her whole life, and that of our family. Luckily a friend recommended Nathalie and after my daughter chatted with her for just one meeting, she began to look at things differently. She didn’t necessarily take things so personally and began to feel more positive about different relationships. Nathalie’s positive and empathetic approach is fantastic. She listens so well and really connected with my daughter. Our family is a much happier unit again and I can relax at night when the kids go to bed.”
Mrs S, Blackburn Melbourne
“I called upon Nathalie after reading her blog, which is a permanent resident in my ‘favourites’ folder. She was welcomed into our home with scones and tea (Cajun style as we forgot about them!) and we sat around chatting like old friends. I felt very comfortable discussing the issues we were having with our toddler and watched on as Nathalie interacted with our daughter in the most delightful way. Nathalie assessed her through play, and made some practical suggestions which we totally embraced. I am now happy to report, the harmony in our home has been restored. Thanks Nathalie, you are like a modern day Mary Poppins, warm, positive and so very kind.”
Mrs Mont, Albert North
“Nathalie, I want to send you a note of thanks as we are now living in a much calmer and more cohesive world with our precious eight year old. When you first met us and talked through some of the changes of behaviour for all of us,I thought you were bonkers!!!! I couldn’t see light at the end of the tunnel. Although things are never perfect, they have improved out of sight. The mornings are calm and going to bed is also much better.The house is much much happier. And most of all I think you have shown us how to be more mature and patient with our kids something every parent needs as a lifeskill and something kids deserve.
Thank you so very much. PS might call you when she’s 13…”
Mr R, Toorak
“Nathalie has been an amazing support for our family, who we approached for guidance regarding our 4yr old son’s behaviour. Her ability to read situations and pick up on the most inconspicuous of ‘symptoms’, purely through her years if experience, have been nothing short of brilliant. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Easy Peasy Kids to anyone who is feeling like they are struggling with their children, Nathalie understands that each child and each family is individual, and having someone to listen and let you know that it’ll be ok is… a heartwarming relief.”
Renee, Newport, Melbourne
“I have been a follower of Easy Peasy Kids (via Facebook) and enjoy the posts and links Nathalie provides on various topics relating to parenting and issues concerning to our children. Recently one of these articles sparked some personal reflection relating to some emotions my daughter had been dealing with. It made me question whether I should explore further support for my child.
I contacted Nathalie via email explaining our situation and requesting whether I should be concerned or not, and if so what steps I should take. I surprised and grateful to receive an email back from Nathalie, where she offered the opportunity to speak to her via telephone. Having the opportunity to speak to Nathalie directly was extremely helpful. She allayed my concerns, provided insight from her may years of experience working with youth, and went on to provide some suggestions and links to resources I could further explore.
I can go on to add that my daughter’s emotional crisis seems to be more manageable. I am mindful of warning signs and have tools at hand to try at these times.
I am so very grateful for the time that Nathalie invested in me (and my child), especially as I was a stranger to her. She has a lovely warm manner and was able to relate to the issues I was facing.”
Mrs F Gloucester NSW
“I contacted Nathalie and from the first minute we spoke, she was wonderful. Very friendly, personable, easy to talk to and genuinely wanting to help.
My son had recently started using the toilet as an excuse to get out of bed at night and extend his bed time. I couldn’t just ignore him as we are toilet training and I had no idea what to do.
From day one of following Nathalie’s advice, he completely changed and the only time we hear about the toilet at night is when he actually needs to go. This is even more impressive because we have moved house and moved him from a bed to a cot in this time, with no regression at all.
I would definitely recommend Nathalie for any issues with children that need addressing.”
Ms. McG, Coffs Harbour
“Nathalie has made such a difference in our family’s life. Somehow Nat has the ability to see reason where reason does not exist amongst the frustration and anger that comes with living with ADHD. Simple ideas we have been able to adapt in our house that makes a difference daily and helps towards creating harmony. Above all, our near teenage son has a confidante, his own personal friend who he can share his thoughts with and trusts completely. Personally, Nathalie has been quite a saviour for me to know that I’m certainly not alone and that there is a positive and unscathed way to get through some difficult periods. We’ve been working with Nathalie from interstate and she’s always just a phone call, Skype or FaceTime away.”
Mrs F, Hayman Islands
“Nathalie came to help after we had been poked and prodded by so many other ‘professionals’ who seemed eager to help, but did anything but. Even though we are in Sydney, and Nathalie in Melbourne, she quickly called and listened to my concerns, my fears and made some valuable suggestions immediately. A steady stream of follow-up calls and emails ensured we were not left floundering. I may be required to listen to “Agadoo” much more than any parent should have to endure, but it’s a small price to pay to have the balanced somewhat restored in our house. I feel very grateful Nathalie took the time to help me find my feet as a parent in a time where nothing seemed to make sense. Thanks Nathalie.”
Mrs H Sydney
“Nathalie is the most generous and empathic woman I have had the pleasure to meet. She exudes warmth and caring, and is passionate about helping families through positive change, empowerment and without guilt. I unreservedly recommend her services.”
Dr Bronwyn Harman School of Psychology and Social Science
“I called easy peasy kids when I was struggling to understand and manage children’s behaviour, particularly sibling rivalry! I was overwhelmed with relief when the friendly understanding voice who answered the phone instantly made me realise she was there to help. That lovely voice became a friendly face and friend to our family known as Nathalie. She has changed our family forever… so much that my husband and I regularly pinch ourselves to think that our family is really ours… Calm happy and loving!!!! Support for families like that is hard to find but with easy peasy kids -its just the way things are!
Mrs T Cranbourne
“I have concurrently cared for numerous patients with Nathalie for the past couple of years. Nathalie has an overwhelming amount of expertise, passion and love for helping children be children. She is dedicated to helping families achieve happiness and harmony in the home, giving tools and strategies to empower all members of a family in order to create change. Nathalie is an inspiration both professionally & personally.”
Dr Karen Gregory
“Her professional, simple and caring approach makes the hardest of problems seem easy to handle. Giving her clients a set of fresh eyes Nathalie is skilled in thinking outside the box to give parents effective tools to improve their parenting skills and build healthier relationships with their children. I highly recommend Nathalie’s work to any parent wanting a better solutions for effective parenting.”
“As a therapist and coach I have found Nathalie to be fantastic. She is very knowledgable, approachable and definitely helpful. She has a great way with adults, teenagers and kids alike. If you need to relieve some family stress so that you can return to a happy, enjoyable and fun family life then I would highly recommend Nathalie and I have many times.”
“Having worked with Nathalie in a business working forum, it was easy to see why she is so successful in her business – Easy Peasy Kids. Nathalie exudes passion and compassion in an area that so many of us have little knowledge and understanding in, yet need so desperately to allow us to run and manage a successful home life which in turn leads into a successful work life. I would highly recommend Natalie to any family that would like a level headed and honest approach to creating structure and harmony in any family home.”
“Nathalie is passionate about children and empowering families. Nathalie has a deep awareness of how to approach children and adults alike to find ways to move forward with what ever is going on.”
Carol Goddard, Child Pyschologist.
“I approached Nathalie for help regarding my 8 year old son in Grade 3. I needed assistance with his learning. Nathalie is very professional and has great experience with learning techniques and behaviour management. All that Nathalie recommended was a major help academically for my son (now student of the week 2 weeks in a row!) and for myself as a mother an amazing insight into seeing the world through my son’s eyes. I now feel I understand and can relate to him.”
Mrs B, Footscray
“Nathalie is thoroughly reliable and always flexible and accommodating, her teaching skills are excellent. Nathalie has no difficulty engaging a class or controlling them. Nathalie is professional, adaptable and has the interpersonal skills required to relate to children and adults on all levels”
Bruce Harrison, Director, Technokids, London
“Nathalie provides age appropriate activities for both my girls and encouragement, they have learnt so much in their time with Nathalie and have a great time together”
Mrs Y, Ringwood North
“Just finished a phone consult with Nathalie Brown from Easy Peasy Kids! I was going to pick ONE word but can’t…Nat gave us reassurance, hope, tools, encouragement & a whole lot more.”
Mrs S Queensland
“Nathalie has established a highly positive relationship with myself and my daughters. The activities Nathalie provides the children are of a very, very high standard. Drawing, painting, singing, cooking, puzzles, reading – the list goes on and on. I really feel Nathalie has assisted in many of my daughters developmental areas. Nathalie has excelled in this area my daughters have learnt so much from Nathalie’s activities, she is absolutely fantastic”
Mrs S, Heathmont
“Nathalie is very patient and assists children to achieve positive results and gain great self esteem. Nathalie shows genuine concern for the well being of the children and their families. She can identify the children’s needs quickly and responds accordingly. Lots of fun and silliness with the children which generates lots of laughter”
Ms J, Croydon
“Things with my son have definitely improved.
I relate to him on an emotional level which has really been the most significant change in his behaviour. We have also done the never ever board which he is getting the hang of, but his receptiveness to all of these changes has blown me away, he knows exactly what is going on and it’s amazing much they learn and absorb so quickly.
We are all going fantastically, it’s nice to be out of the sleep deprivation cycle and our son is just turning into a beautiful little boy!
Thank you kindly.”
Mrs S, Nunawading
“Nathalie made me feel very comfortable discussing any issues. Nathalie is one of the kindest persons I have met. I thank her as it has made my son learn to share when playing with others, my son has come a long way since being in her care.’’
Ms J, Ringwood East
“Nathalie somehow is able to make each child feel special and loved. This gives great confidence to mums like me. I’ve always felt comfortable discussing any issues with Nathalie and am confident of the professional and personal manner and how she combines both in her decisions and care. I am always impressed by the creativity and passion Nathalie brings. Her understanding of child development goes above and beyond, I am amazed at her abilities in this area. We’ve only known you a short time and yet you’ve made such an impact on our whole family!”
Mrs K, Ringwood East
“Nathalie demonstrates a kind and warm personality and has been responsible for introducing our children to the world of computers. In my opinion Nathalie is blessed with a natural ability to get down to the individual child’s level. In no time we found our children totally captivated within her fun, lively classes. She is simply adored by our children” Ms. Frances Delaney, Head Teacher London
“Our son seemed very relaxed and cheerful for the rest of the day – slept soundly overnight. We couldn’t be happier. You have been a really wonderful force in the lives of my 2 precious boys and of course mine.” Mrs H, Heathmont
“Nathalie assists children with their needs where appropriate but also offers them the opportunity to assert their independence and complete their own tasks, Nathalie is very alert to the differing needs of individual children, she has excellent problem solving skills and her professionalism comes to the fore especially when working with difficult family circumstances.
Nathalie employs subtle strategies in term of behaviour management. Children are treated with the utmost of respect and her interaction with the children was exceptional, extending language, reinforcing key concepts and sharpening children’s concentration and observation skills.”
Maroondah (Vic) Family Day Care.
“I have depression. I have completed the Happier you coaching with Nathalie. My depression hasn’t gone away completely but I’m living again, I laugh a lot more and Nathalie listens well and she cares.” Mrs P. Doncaster
“Nathalie has given me some simple great ideas for helping improve my relationship with my kids. She is very insightful and the kids love her visits. I’m sure Nathalie is very busy but she still manages to make you feel like you matter and are very important to her. I feel like I am her favourite client, thanks Nathalie for always going above and beyond. Ms. F Mitcham
“We came to Nathalie when we were at a loss about what to do next with some parenting issues we had. She was fantastic – she was compassionate, empathetic and gave pragmatic, practical suggestions that we could implement straight away. She also called a spade a spade – no dancing around the subject, which was great as it meant we could get straight into sorting things out and developing solutions. We did the sessions by Skype and I was worried how that would go – but it truly was like we were sitting in the same room. Most astonishingly – she managed to connect with our six year old over Skype as well.I would absolutely recommend Nathalie – she knows her stuff and can help things get better.” Mrs T Perth.
“Nathalie recently assisted our family to work through some behavioural issues we were experiencing with our eldest son. With Nathalie’s assistance it soon become obvious what the basis for the behavioural issues were and she was able to provide us with a range of techniques and methods for us to use. It was very helpful to have Nathalie’s advice and she went above and beyond to make sure she was readily available and that we had the resources and tools we needed. I would highly recommend Nathalie’s services to any family looking to improve their relationship with their children.” Mrs L. D. Queensland
“We approached Nathalie in the hope of a more holistic and nurturing solution to our 7 year old son’s challenging behaviours. From our very first phone conversation we knew we had made the right decision. Nathalie’s approach was so positive and it was clear she had our son’s best interests at heart. Nathalie’s explanations of her therapy styles were very thorough and through each stage, we felt very informed. Nathalie worked closely with our son’s teacher and provided the necessary tools to gently guide and encourage our son toward more appropriate classroom behaviour. With Nathalie’s help, our son is now better equipped to manage his emotions resulting in a more content, happy boy. Thank you Nathalie for being the guiding light our family needed. You’re an amazing person and if I hadn’t have attended your building resilience workshop at school I may never have known about the help you offer!” Mrs N W Ringwood.
Simone and her son 8 years old (ADHD, Anxiety & Aspergers)
Nathalie’s knowledge and expertise makes you feel like you have a guardian angel in parenting. She empowers you to achieve your goals, she doesn’t judge and is able to communicate in a way that is nurturing, yet inspiring. Each child and family situation is different, Nathalie’s approach is tailored for you and your family. Whilst you are on the program you feel like your child is as important to her as they are to you.
Nathalie has changed life for our son, and for our family. We were faced with the option of putting our son on long-term medication for ADHD, Anxiety & Asperger’s Syndrome or trying something a different. This something different was a phone call to Nathalie Brown. Our goal was to find a way to manage our sons behavioural challenges, to really understand him and to find ways for US to change so we did not have to use medication. Nathalie helped us to engage the school and other key influencers in our sons life to provide consistency in our approach. . I am so grateful that we have been able to implement some small changes to the way we manage our family for immeasurable results, both at home and at school. We also have two other children and Nathalie helped us to find ways to better connect and understand them. I feel we are really becoming the best parents we can be, and through this our children will continue to shine and achieve their dreams.
I know we will continue to use Nathalie as our son’s journey as his needs change. The only regret I have is that we didn’t make contact with Nathalie sooner.
Nicole and her son 3.5 years old
I came into contact with Nathalie Brown through her Facebook page, “Easy Peasy Kids”. My husband and I had been struggling with some behavioural issues with our 3 year old son and sought guidance from her.
She was extremely generous with her time. She came to our home to visit our son, who was taken with her instantly and has been asking after her numerous times since her visit. Nathalie offered some brilliant, easy to follow suggestions to us to help to change his behaviour and limit the number of tantrums we were experiencing. My husband and I took all of them on board and made a conscious effort to put them into place. Not only that, but Nathalie also helped us to understand and think about some reasons why this may have been occurring.
We have been amazed at the difference in our son! He had been throwing tantrums a minimum of 3 to 4 times a day and now we rarely have an issue at all! We also noticed an immediate difference when we put the changes in place. I feel as though we have come to understand him better, we have learned a lot about ourselves and the way we communicate with our children as well.
Nathalie had also suggested we see our paediatrician regarding some past medical issues that had been unresolved. With her help we have been able to have his health issues investigated further and we now have referrals to a specialist clinic. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would have been able to push the doctors for answers and my son may have had to deal with his issues for a longer period of time than he needed to!
I would highly recommend Nathalie to anyone I knew who is struggling with their children’s behaviour. I love that she sees the child and not their behaviour. I love how she thinks outside the box and doesn’t jump to conclusions of a disorder without researching all other avenues first. Nathalie has a deep love for children which shows in the way she deals with children AND their parents. It has been a privilege to know her and we are extremely grateful for her help.
Bianca and her daughter 6. 5 years old
The help we received from Nathalie from Easy Peasy Kids has helped mend our family – get it back on track. Our eldest girl has embraced her new room, she’s soaked up our “high praise”, all the techniques we’ve put in place have made for a more content, calm child and as a result we’ve done things as a family, that others take for granted. For the youngest two girls, this is wonderful. I’d even go as far to say that the past few weeks have been some of the best yet. The five of us are a fantastic team. Read more here.
