Discover the easier way to talk to your kid(s) about puberty, bodies and sex
…even if you feel worried, stuck or uncomfortable.
You’ll learn how how to get talking comfortably with your kid(s) about awkward stuff
This is talking, with a difference.
If the idea of having a comfortable conversation about bodies, puberty and sex feels difficult – you’re in the right place.
In Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) you’ll learn your own unique way to talk about things that feel uncomfortable.
There’s so much information online and in books that offer suggestions to help parents talk to kids about bodies, puberty and sex but it’s not tailored to your experience or your unique family situation.
That’s why Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) works so well.
It allows you to bring your experience and discomforts and find your unique way to move forward.
If you’re looking for a one-size-fits-all, you won’t find that here. What you will find is lots of caring and kindness and self-compassion.
You aren’t broken if this part of parenting feels hard
Somewhere along the line, we pick up the idea that good parents should be comfortable talking to their kids about puberty and sex.
But not all parents feel comfortable doing this on their own.
Perhaps like yours, my parents weren’t that comfortable talking about awkward stuff when I was growing up.
They met so many of my needs, but they didn’t talk to me about puberty, bodies and sex in a way that built a connection between us.
I never learned that I could choose what I wanted in a relationship, so I did what the people around me were doing and that went horribly wrong.
It took me years to find my voice and learn to speak up for myself while respectfully listening to the people around me.
Because of my experience, I’ve taught my children these skills and I teach other parents to do the same in their families.
That’s why you’re here: you know somewhere deep inside that you want your child to discover who they are, what they want and how to speak up for themselves.
We don’t just teach our kids with what we say; we show them with our actions too. The calmer you are having these conversations, the deeper the connection you’ll build.
That’s why I’m so glad that you’re here.
By having sensitive conversations, you’ll be changing not only your child’s future but the future of generations to come.
That’s why this work matters.
Comfortable conversations create space for more …
Love in action
These are next-generation conversations
And they’re so good.
Because it means you can give your kid(s) what you didn’t have growing up.
You’re so capable as a parent: you’re doing amazingly in so many areas.
But this bit is complicated; talking about puberty, bodies and sex can be hard because it brings up all kinds of emotions.
You know that talking comfortably is something you want to do but time is passing and you still haven’t found your way in.
These conversations are possible; let me show you how.
No more missed opportunities to start conversations.
No more awkward pauses.
No more unanswered questions.
When you work through the Comfortable Parent Framework you’ll have all of the tools that you need.
And you’ll get the practice to have these conversations with your kids.
Better still, you’ll be supported by a community of parents who are doing the exact same thing as you are.
I’ll be there with you every step of the way.

Hi, I’m Sarah
I created Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) for you, because not so long ago I was where you are.
Growing up as a young person, and now as a parent, I’ve been working my way through sensitive conversations for over 40 years.
These conversations are so important that I even went back to college to do a Masters degree and get the book learning, so you don’t have to.
As an occupational therapist, I’ve seen how individual each parent and child can be.
And I’ve learned that parents can gradually build their own confidence to talk about awkward topics when they have practical help, opportunities to prepare for saying what their kid(s) need to hear and lots of pressure-free support.
We’ve got everything you need to feel comfortable
Age Appropriate Topics + Conversation Starters + Caring Support
Age Appropriate Topics
You’ll get clear and simple guidelines for what to talk about with your child at any age. You’ll learn to calm your fears about saying the wrong thing or using the wrong words. You’ll be building your confidence and at the same time your child’s self-awareness.
Gradually building week on week, you’ll learn our most effective sentence starters and listening strategies. With these simple yet effective techniques, you’ll be able to connect with your child in the way that feels best. Your kid feels understood and you feel confident and calm.
Move forward to connect with your child with gentle confidence. And discover how to take care of yourself in the process. There is only one you and you’re important. The Sensitive Conversations community will make sure you have the care you need to do this important work for your kid(s).
There’s an extra bonus if you join in the first 24 hours
Sarah’s One-to-One: talk through your biggest roadblock
Sometimes you really need to be face-to-face (online, of course!) with me to get you moving. And this bonus gives you exactly that.
This 30-minute call helps you really see your situation and what is holding you back. I can’t do your parenting for you but I can give you the support you need to work out what’s your next most important step.

Here’s what lovely people have said
I have always felt really uncomfortable talking with my kids about sex. Sarah has helped me realise why. Her kind approach enabled me to open up and be honest with why I found it difficult. What I learnt was transformational. I have learnt how incredibly important it is, as a parent to have these intimate conversations with my kids. Since starting to talk, they know they can trust me and talk to me about anything that’s worrying them.
— Michelle, Entrepreneur and mum of two (6 and 4)
Sarah’s kind and calming manner gave me the confidence to be kinder, calmer and more loving with my girls as we talk about potentially challenging topics. I recently was able to kindly defer answering a particularly sticky question simply by saying “I’m not ready to answer that just yet, but what I CAN tell you is…” and that was 100% down to Sarah and her kind coaching.
— Anne, Brand Language Specialist and Mama of 2 (11 and 13)
Sarah has a special gift to put kind words and basic explanations around complex issues. She has given me the courage and confidence to talk to my daughter. My main reason for wanting to work with her was that I wanted to equip my daughter. I wanted her to be ‘strong’ on the playground, not to be caught out by conversations the ‘cool kids’ were having and then not knowing what it’s all about.
Sarah helped me to get out of my own head .. and just have these ongoing conversations in a very natural way.
— Marike Fichardt, Business Owner and Mum (10 yo)
Before I met Sarah I was nervous about how to talk to my children about sex, relationships all the big stuff. But she helped me to do it in a way that was comfortable for both me and my children. Most importantly she taught me not to be afraid to make mistakes and that the ‘ big conversation’ is really just lots of little conversations developed over time. She has lots of practical knowledge on parenting, sex and relationships for sure but for me, Sarah’s real skill is giving parents the space to be unsure and to ask questions.
— Beth Kilkenny, Poet and Mother (9 and 6)
What are the program dates?
The program begins on October 5th and runs for 9 weeks with a one-week break for Irish school holidays (October 26th – 31st).
How much time will the programme take each week?
On Monday each week I release a series of short videos that you can watch at a time that suits you best. Those will take about 50 mins to an hour.
Then on Thursday, you have a live, online group session with me. You can choose between two times: noon (Irish time) or 8pm Irish time. Or you can attend both sessions on that day if you need extra support that week.
And here’s the best bit: you don’t have to watch any of the videos to attend the live calls on Thursdays.
I know everyone’s busy so I welcome anyone to be on the calls, it doesn’t matter how many videos you’ve watched or haven’t watched. This course is not about trying to do the impossible.
What else do I have to do if I join this program?
Nothing. I do everything for you. Simply watch the weekly on-demand classes. Then turn up for at least one of the two support calls each week. You won’t need to do any homework or preparation. You will probably find that you think a lot about the information I give you (because it’s so interesting). Apart from that, just carry on as normal and watch what happens.
Will I get any 1 to 1 time with Sarah?
Only participants who signed up for Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) in the first 24 hours have access to 1 to 1 time with me as a bonus. But don’t worry. I’m available on two group calls each week of the programme (apart from our week off). You’ll have a lot of support.
I’m already an open parent, do I need this course?
Here’s what the research shows. When parents and children are interviewed about how often they have conversations about puberty, bodies and sex, they contradict each other. Even if a parent says they talk a lot about puberty, bodies and sex, most young people will report that these conversations hardly happen in their family. I can’t tell you what you should do. But the research says your children probably aren’t hearing what you think they are hearing.
What if I can’t make it to the sessions live?
Everything in Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) is recorded. I want you to have access to everything no matter where you are in the world even if you have the busiest schedule on the planet! I know parenting is hard right now and the world had changed so I have your back. And if you chose the ‘pay in full’ option I will create a podcast stream of every session so you can listen anywhere and anytime.
I haven’t talked to my kid(s) AT ALL about puberty, bodies and sex – is Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) right for me?
Many parents haven’t been able to talk about sensitive things before they start working with me – but the thing I always focus on is finding the right way for YOU to start. If you’re stressed, your conversations won’t feel right and your kid(s) will notice. And that’s not the best outcome for anyone.
Will I really be able to talk to my kids about puberty, bodies and sex?
Many of the parents who work with me during this programme notice huge differences in the way they feel about sensitive conversations. I will work with you to find the right actions for you to take. Some parents need a slower and more gentle journey to talk. Others get chatting more in the second week. Everybody is different.
If I tried to make promises about what you would be able to do, I wouldn’t be being kind or honest. And that’s not who I am. Your journey will be different to the parents around you. But I can promise you this. You will make progress if you join Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) and listen to the trainings and attend the support calls with an open mind.
What is your refund policy?
You have 14 days to decide if the program is right for you and can contact me for a full refund. After 14 days, no refunds are available.
I have young children who aren’t even in school yet. Is Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) right for me?
The older your children get, the more difficult it is to start having natural and comfortable conversations about puberty, bodies and sex. If your child(ren) are pre-school age (or younger) this is the perfect time to get your head in the game to start conversations. Your kid(s) are open and ready to learn from the adult they trust most, you.
My kid(s) have started puberty. Is Sensitive Conversations (Made Easier) right for me?
It’s never too late to start talking to growing kids about their bodies, puberty and sex. Even though they tell you they know everything, they still need your guidance.
