Ginny Johnstone - Founder of Pure Parenting, Parenting Coach & Schools Consultant (mom of three gorgeous girls) Having spent most of my adult life working in the corporate world of advertising and marketing (I was a London-based marketing strategist in what I now call my 'past life'!), I woke up one day to find out I was pregnant with twins! And boom, just like that my whole world changed! Like many mothers, after the birth of my beautiful girls I found that I was no longer interested in business and corporate life and began my new career in life coaching, emotional healing, woman's empowerment and motivational speaking. I trained in Life Coaching with the UK Coaching Academy in 2002, Life Alignment and Belief Repatterning in Cape Town 2007 and began working with clients both one-on-one and holding self-development talks, groups and workshops for women later that year. Following the birth of my third daughter in 2010 I trained in NLP with NLPSA and became interested in new ways of 'conscious' parenting. I started Pure Parenting in 2012 after training as a Positive Discipline Parent Educator through the American Positive Discipline Association.
In my spare time you may find me eating out in special places by the sea, enjoying music and dancing, relaxing on the beach, doing yoga outdoors, eating anything chocolatey(!), chatting for hours with my girlfriends, going for sushi, holidaying in tropical places, visiting my parents in South of France, and spending time with our three delicious children and my sports-crazy husband!

Beauty Mbangi - Childminder Superstar & Pure Parenting Workshop Assistant (mom of one gorgeous boy) Children are my passion. I love to look after them, play with them, read with them and teach them how to treat each other kindly and with love. I love how they change from day to day, how they light up with joy when I chase them round the house and how they amaze me when they show me what they've learnt at school. I have been looking after children for the past 13yrs and have been privileged to be with some of them since they were just born. Watching them grow up fills my heart with happiness. I have a gift of putting children at ease and I find it easy to keep them happy while in my care no matter how many of them are with me at the time. Sometimes we have a house filled with children... the more the merrier! I love to share that gift with others, especially other nannies who want to get on better with the children in their care and who like to learn my way of working with kids. I love my work and feel blessed to be surrounded by the joy of children in my life and to be able to make a difference in their days. I also love to play, go to church, visit my family, sing and read.
