"Pam did what was right for my children, not just what society expected.  As a father who thought he had no rights, that meant the world to me.  Her integrity during the assessment months spoke volumes." 

Father of three, 2016

"I have entrusted Pam with the most complex and most delicate of matters. She is never swayed by one over another, rather she seeks to find the best route to a positive outcome for the children. "

Attorney, 2016


"Pam holds firmly to the truth and uses it as a mast to find a way forward. "

Single Mom, 2014

" Pam was a blessing to our family. She brought calmness to very stormy and very muddy waters. My family would have drowned without her."

Adolescent, 2013



"My take out from Pam is always practical. She gives great theory but her ideas on how to improve always inspire me to take action at home."

Lana, 2016


"Pam’s talk was current, edgy and full of fun examples. Always a wow! "

Debra, parent of four, 2015


"Pam held my attention with laughter, interest and GREAT input throughout her talk. I have been to a few of her presentations and she is always real. She is not the superior speaker, she is a mom just like us."

Karen, 2017 


"Pam leaves me inspired to be a better dad and yet not guilty for being less than optimum most of the time."

 Gavin, 2015



Enhancing emotional intelligence

Pam Tudin has developed a tool called EQ IN A BOX ©, an interactive story board game, aimed at enhancing the emotional intelligence of children and adolescents affected by change. 
The tool has been met with wide acclaim both locally and abroad.



" Who knew getting my child to share her feelings would be so simple, she has been such a difficult adolescent and at last we are communicating. I am no therapist, just a simple parent struggling like the rest of us. This tool is groundbreaking! "

Parent, Denmark

 "A big thank you for "EQ in a Box"© - I have only had it one month so far and I have used it almost every day in my practice - what a wonderful tool."
