Have you ever wondered what might be possible if you planted the right seeds?


Join award winning Becoming Us author and Parenthood Pioneer, Elly Taylor, for a breakthrough "Seed Planting" Workshop, where you'll learn how to sow some powerful seeds this summer.

Come meet Australian "Parenthood Pioneer" and award winning author Elly Taylor on her first US Tour! Elly will be visiting eight US cities this summer to share seeds of change and support, to help families thrive as they grow. Find one near you!

As a Relationship Counselor and a new mother at the same time, Elly began trying to get her head around the whole parenthood thing over 20 years ago when she and her husband were blindsided by the changes and challenges they experienced as new parents. For years, after she discovered most other couples were being blindsided too, she wondered why parents weren't being prepared for these ahead of time.
Fast forward to now and Elly is the founder of Becoming Us, an organization created to share her research with helping professionals and to teach her evidence-based approach to parenthood, to support mothers, fathers, partners and families to thrive.

Come and meet with Elly and discover the difference Becoming Us can make for yourself!

Workshops for Helping Professionals:

In this 2 hour interactive workshop you'll learn key tools to prepare and support expecting and new parent couples to anticipate the changes, cope with the chaos and stay connected through the challenges of early parenthood. You'll come away with ways for parents to nurture themselves, and their partners, so their whole family can thrive.

While it's commonly referred to as "the transition into parenthood", you'll discover that there are, in fact, many different transitions. You'll learn what those transitions are, and how they can negatively impact mothers, fathers and families. You'll learn how to plant Becoming Us "seeds" that reduce risk for the most common parenthood problems including perinatal mental health issues and relationship distress. Finally, you'll discover the groundbreaking Becoming Us approach to parenthood and how you can apply the model to your work with parents at any stage of their family life cycle.

This workshop is designed to support:

  • all mental health professionals,
  • couple and family therapists,
  • birth professionals,
  • infant or child mental health professionals,
  • early intervention professionals,
  • and any others who work with expecting, new or not so new parents.
