Alice Sheldon

Alice Sheldon

Alice formulated the Partnership Parenting approach to offer a simple, learnable and transformative parenting model which brings together the work of leaders in parenting, psychology and communication. She founded the Partnership Parent in 2010 to provide resources for parents aligned with philosophies like attachment parenting, positive parenting and peaceful parenting, but stuck with how to apply them with children of toddler age and beyond.

Her passion for teaching Partnership Parenting is matched by her love of creating opportunities for a growing body of parents and children to come together for support, connection and fun. She lives in Bristol with her 7 year old daughter, and her formal qualifications are MA Psychol (Oxon), PGCE and CNVC Certified Trainer.
