Tuning into Teens (Online Program)

Tuning into Teens (TINTs) is a six session program, which is designed to support and help parents teach their teenage children to control, understand and express their emotions in healthy and positive ways. TINT helps parents recognise, understand and respond to their teenager’s emotions, which in turn helps them manage their own emotions. Tuning into Teens offers a range of approaches and strategies developed through the idea of emotional intelligence.

Who is it for?

This program is for parents of 9-18 year old’s and will teach you how to manage your own and your adolescent’s emotions in ways that help you to remain close and keep communicating. By learning these skills, you are less likely to have as much conflict within your family and your teen is more likely to talk to you about the challenging issues they face. These are factors that have been found to reduce the risk of mental health and substance abuse problems.

How can it help me?

Tuning into Teens shows you how to help your teen develop emotional intelligence. Adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:

– Are more aware, assertive and strong in situations of peer pressure.
– Have greater success with making friends and are more able to manage conflict with peers.
– Are more able to cope when upset or angry.
– Have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties.
– Have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults.
– Have greater career success
– Emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!


Fees are $320 per parent or $425 for a couple.

Alternatively, if you have an NDIS plan for your child/teen you may be able to access this via their package.

If you are struggling financially feel free to call and we can explore other options for payment of the fees.

Price also includes a postage paid participant program manual.

I enjoyed the skills learnt to enhance and better my relationship with my children, friends and extended family. Thank you!


Alan was a fantastic facilitator for tuning into teens. I always found him very encouraging when I shared on a personal level. After doing this course I feel I am more aware of my own emotions and how I can manage them, which means I can be a more emotionally tuned parent.


It was a great course, thank you Alan. I wish I had known about and done this course many years ago. Your course really helped to teach how to emotion coach, and I had a few epiphanies along the way!


I highly recommend the Tuning into Teens online program to all parents, carers, teachers and mentors to tweens and teens. Alan is a dedicated and heart-centred facilitator with a wealth of experience – and rare gift – in working with youth and navigating sensitive and tricky family dynamics. The emotion coaching techniques have been invaluable – I only wish I had known about this years ago!


This was a fantastic course and I have gained so much from it. The skills and knowledge I learned have improved both my relationship with my child and our family life at home.


I can’t speak of this course highly enough. With Alan’s knowledge and experience he has guided us through 6 weeks of insightful parenting techniques. Everything from my family of origin – to my parenting style, emotional coaching teens with Alan has been the most eye opening experience. I have grown within myself, I am parenting with purpose, and I am now aware of when and how to emotion coach. Thank you Alan for making this experience available.


It’s amazing. I learned a lot from this course and it is imperative that I can apply and practice with my child what I have learned. I want parents who care about their children to know this course, because it’s really important to care and to know how to speak, empathizing with your teens feelings. Thank you to Alan for an amazing job you have done to supporting all parent during this course.


Emotion coaching has been a game changer in the way I now parent. It is much more intentional and so much effective.


Completing the course has helped me identify the type of parenting I was providing and how I could make changes that will enable more positive outcomes. I feel empowered now with the ability to better support my teens navigate their way in the world in a calmer, safe and happier way.


The course was delivered so professionally and I felt safe at all times to talk about my parenting and life experiences without fear of being judged. Alan’s gentle and encouraging nature really helped me to feel listened to and after doing this course, I feel so much more confident in my parenting ability. I would recommend this course to anyone with children in their lives-parents, grandparents, carers, aunts and uncles, youth workers, school teachers…pretty much anyone who lives, communicates or works with young people. Thank you Alan 😊
