Hi! I'm Holly
In the rush of our busy world, our soul and consciousness are two aspects of our true self that become the most neglected. Without a clear connection to our souls, we fall into fraught relationships with ourselves and our children, easily triggered by the baggage of our past while being held hostage by toxic generational cycles.
There is another way. One that is intentional about making our soul the center of our decision making, behaviour and habits. A soul centred conscious life is one where we honour our soul’s journey and live in alignment with it. Where we are aware of our personal trauma and cognisant of not passing it onto those we love and care for. Where we lean into our vulnerability and embrace the truth even when it hurts. Where we embrace the truth and operate with proactive intention. Where we lead with self-awareness and are willing to face our own shadows that are triggered by our world, our partners, or our children. Where we use our personality to serve the energy of our soul.
The Holly Effect was created to help people evolve consciously by shifting them from a trauma-based view of relating, to a conscious and connected focus. In essence, empowering both children and adults to live a soul centred life, with strong bonds of trust and self-reflection, creating a life full of self-belief, self-worth and authenticity. Every aspect of our soul centred content has been designed to encourage and empower responsive and receptive life choices that help to consciously evolve our souls. Our approach to spirit and soul led parenting and relationships is upfront, honest, transparent and doesn’t pull any punches. It’s steeped in full truths and tough love while balancing spirituality with reality, and creating an environment where vulnerability always feels safe.
We offer two main training modules – the Conscious Parenting Program and the Soul Parenting Program – that combine mind and soul together to help parents help parents break generational cycles and learn how to ensure their children feel heard, valued, understood and ultimately loved and confident in their self-esteem.
The Holly Effect has also evolved into offering a series of powerful, soul centred retreats and coaching packages focused on increasing intuitive consciousness in everything we do and living a life of purpose.
We believe that by evolving consciously, we can transform society to connecting and living intentionally, from a place of wholeness. This is our soul centered world. We invite you to evolve consciously with us.
Aware, alive, mindful, perceptive, attentive, discerning, assured
The Holly Effect is an engaged and deeply committed brand that believes in empowering parents, adults and children to make emotionally intelligent and aligned choices that inspire empathy and connection – by shifting them from a trauma-based view of relating, to a conscious and connected focus.
We understand that the patterns which are set up in early childhood form the basis of our future relationships – including the one we have with ourselves – shaping our perspectives, beliefs, self-concept, and outlook. We champion a foundation of selfregulation, self reflection, resiliency and urge a congruent, authentic and truthful approach to self discovery. We believe that relationships can be completely transformed by evolving consciously to deepen our trust in the world and help to grow our inner security. We aim to cultivate environments where souls can expand and thrive – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Divine, sacred, believing, elevated, delightful, miraculous
The Holly Effect celebrates the inherent spirituality in the beauty and miracle of children, parents and relationships. We believe even everyday events have the potential to be sacred moments — dinner conversations, bedtime tuck-ins, car ride journeys, performing daily chores and sharing joy and laughter. We believe that children especially are deeply spiritual creatures and there is a whole generation of children coming through who know exactly why they are here! They have no regard for the ‘status quo’ because that only interferes with their purpose for being here in this human experience at this time. They are here to break the cycle and disrupt the way we do things. This is often the underlying reason for many of the behaviours found in children who are constantly ‘bucking the system’, making it hard for the parents who raise them. We encourage parents to embrace a spiritual approach to parenting, that will in turn enrich their children’s own life and soul as well as cultivate a deeper understanding and harmony in the parent-child relationship. We also encourage silence, meditation, stillness, presence, self-honour, enthusiasm, hope, forgiveness, gratitude, and other spiritual practices to help build trust and teach that all life is connected and has a purpose.
Correlated, interdependent, interrelated, intertwined
The Holly Effect is focused on helping people build a strong connection with their loved ones. We’re about the conscious relational experience first and foremost. We believe the purpose of relationships is to mirror what we need to see within ourselves, and to bring our shadow aspects to light. The parts of ourselves that we have rejected and abandoned are always reflected in our relationships, which is what makes them so triggering and often turbulent. It is within the sacred spaces of our relationships that we are provided with opportunities for our most profound growth, our deepest integrations, and we are ultimately invited back ‘home’ to our wholeness. If we are open to receiving, our relationships always provide us with the deepest insights to ourselves.
We believe in respectfully listening, tenderly nurturing and wholeheartedly honouring the full spectrum of our loved ones’ emotions and experiences. The programs we’ve designed are intended to invite users to learn, participate and implement. We believe that connected relationships are based on a combination of limits and boundaries along with gentleness, devotion, love and connection.
Inspired, creative, imaginative, innate, instinctive, natural
As well as being consciously evolved and really good at what we do, The Holly Effect is an intuitive and ever evolving brand.
Which means we encourage parents and adults to trust their own intuition and inner knowing to tune in to their children’s needs. By being open to how children naturally signal what they know and what they need to learn next, intuitive parents who recognize—and respond to these cues can help empower their children’s self led original thinking, creativity, and self-confidence.
Being intuitive also means living in the moment and dabbling in the unexpected, the new and in the unexplored possibilities. We’re also playful, unconventional and sometimes even quirky! By creating moments of delight, we bring fun and joy to parenting and relationships 🙂
Allow your heart to be touched by the real-life stories of families who have completely changed the entire trajectory of their lives through our programs. My heart is so full, and my life feels so enriched in knowing how deeply we made a difference.
As I reflect on my journey with Holly over the past year, I have so many tears of pure joy and gratitude. She is just so perfect in every way and the Universe definitely delivered her straight to me.
I have certainly opened! I feel the hugest shifts from enmeshment and lack of boundaries in my life to being very soul-centred, accepting and so much wiser.
What a year it has been! My biggest yet of personal growth by far – all of which I attribute to Holly! She has played such a pivotal role in all of my family life for a long time now, and I am going to miss our weekly calls. But at the same time, I feel so courageous to step forwards even deeper into my authenticity and my purpose and do so much more with my life.
I am truly honouring my journey to wholeness now and accepting and loving all those parts of myself that I had always been told were faults and weaknesses. I see my gifts, and I want to offer them to the world so that I can use them to serve others.
Thanks to Holly’s guidance at 52 years of age I feel I have finally come home to me!
Holly’s once-off calls have been life savers for me.
Holly always offers clarity. She enables me to understand not only my own involvement in situations so that I’m able understand myself better, but also helps me to understand others around me. This enables me to take conscious action and create positive change. She always gives straight down the line advice & strategies that can be implemented immediately, as well as homework if you want to dig a little deeper & continue your learning.
I always come away feeling like the weight has shifted and feel empowered vs overwhelmed. Knowing Holly has my back when I need it, is very reassuring.
My heart is exploding. I can see life in my son’s eyes for the first time in 5 years! It’s been 9 days since he’s had an outburst and argued with me. Before this program this was constant and exhausting. He has been seeing a psychologist for 5 years, but this program has healed him and got results in only 6 weeks. I’m so grateful for this Conscious Parenting Program and the connections I’m making with my babies.
If parenting came with a manual, this would be it! I have been blown away by the massive impact a few key words can have and how simple language changes can make such a difference. My 3 children totally respond to me and they listen when I talk! This program has given me my kids back. It’s given me my confidence back. I can’t recommend it enough!
I can’t even express the gratitude I have for this program. There was so much breakdown in our home, particularly with our eldest who is 12. The breakdowns were getting worse, more volatile and it put my relationship with my partner in a very difficult place. This program has been an absolute game changer! We are now getting breakthroughs and we are all so connected again!
My 12yr old son has ADHD and has always been a difficult child. No matter what I tried, nothing seemed to work. I got to the point where I felt like I didn’t even like him. This program changed everything and it changed so fast! We are so connected now, and the conversations I can have with him are amazing. I LOVE being a parent again!
The best thing I got from this program was being able to see my kids for who they are rather than seeing them as my kids who “need to do what I say because I’m the boss”. My eldest son has autism and this program made me realise I didn’t accept him for who he is. It has been so powerful to share my journey with other parents and be accountable to the kind of parent I want to be.
The Conscious Parenting Program has been the most revolutionary thing I have ever done. There have been major changes in my household and major changes in me! I literally feel like Holly has been an angel that saved me and my family. If you’re thinking of doing this program, it will be the best thing you’ll ever do!
We have honestly had the calmest mornings ever!! My eldest has been getting herself ready for school without any reminders and there has been NO arguments between my girls. I cannot tell you what difference this program is already making in our home. We have all been so much happier and seen huge changes! I didn’t expect immediate changes, but I am overjoyed with the instant results!
Wow, what a difference 24 hours can make! I watched each of the Love Language videos and my 3 children have gone to bed without a fuss two nights in a row. We also had a perfect morning getting ready for school and swimming with enough time to play footy outside with my eldest before school. No arguments and a really enjoyable morning!
I realised we hadn’t been connecting with our children the way they needed (even though I had read the Love Languages book and thought I had it right). We started implementing what we learned in this program and saw an immediate change in our children’s behaviour and self-esteem. It also assisted my husband and I being on the same page. It’s been a game changer for us!
I have only just finished watching the first pillar of the conscious parenting program and I have never been this excited about parenting before! It is making so much sense to me. I’m excited to do the work. It’s just wonderful!
I had a very old school way of parenting – “Do what I say, when I say and don’t answer back”. It was destroying my relationship with my children. Only a few weeks in and the Conscious Parenting Program has changed my whole life! I’m not yelling as much, not feeling so angry and NO mum guilt at the end of the day. My 6yr old’s tantrums have completely stopped and we are connected again.
We had sleep issues with our 2yr old and often had to go for a drive in the car to get her to sleep. Within 2 weeks she was sleeping so well and even putting herself to bed while I was feeding the baby! She also responded so well to the language we learned in the conscious parenting program and it became so easy to correct her behaviour and get instant responses from her.
