FREE Stress Management Course for Parents of Kids with Special Needs

Parenting is stressful. Parenting exceptional kids is even more so. We’re human after all, and when our kids are doing it tough and we have to fight for every opportunity for them to thrive, it can take its toll.

Which is why this course was created. Because when you’re less stressed, it not only benefits you, it benefits the whole family.

My name is Susie Hopkins and I’m an expert in stress management. My background is as a Registered Nurse, I have a Master’s of Public Health and am a qualified mindfulness and yoga teacher.

I’m also mum to Harry, six, who is level two autistic.

And I’ve designed this course for time-poor parents of kids with special needs. It is a super concise but thorough overview that teaches you how to be better at stress.

Importantly, it also provides an opportunity to make a plan for less stress going forward.


Less stress for you means less stress for the whole family


Studies confirm that our stress levels are much higher than other parents. The fact that many kids with additional needs exhibit some seriously challenging behaviours means that stress levels can end up completely out of control. I have been there. It was horrendous. 

And perhaps just as many studies show that parent stress is not good for our kids. I am so blessed to have learned many strategies and skills that have made our very difficult journey more manageable.


Thankfully, though we encounter challenges every day in various ways in my little family and sometimes my tolerance wears thin because this is to be expected, we have come a long way since those dark, dark days. But I will never forget it and this is why I’m offering this course for free.


Many techniques that are super easy, such as simple breathing exercises, can make a huge difference to stress levels. It’s not hard to reduce stress levels, but you do need to learn to do things differently.


Here’s what one course participant said about it.

It’s put it in perspective for me. And I LOVE how easy to understand

and practical it is.” Emily

I love this testimonial because it absolutely hits the nail on the head.


The biggest thing that will help you manage stress is a shift in your perspective


The first step is accepting that stress is normal and to make sure you don’t feel stressed (or ashamed) about feeling stressed!And on a similar theme, getting really good at practicing acceptance in general, of the things you cannot change is really helpful.


You also need to get very intentional in how you live your life. We live in stressful times. Unless you are one of the very few people who are naturally good at stress, living your life in a way that promotes good mental health enables you to enjoy the ride – even when times are tough.


This applies to everyone; mental health problems are through the roof. And as parents of kids with special needs we are even more at risk of mental health problems than most and our kids depend on us so much to be their rock.


We’re risking too much when we live our lives in ways that don’t promote our mental fortitude. When we don’t take a breather, drink too much and don’t get enough sleep for example.


I know that one of the main reasons my little family is thriving is because I work so hard to make sure I am mentally healthy. I’d love to help you be less stressed and feel mentally strong too. So check it out, here’s that link one more time:
