Hi, I’m Victoria Maus

Hi, I’m Victoria, but you can call me Toria.

I’m a Peaceful Parenting Instructor from England and recently relocated to beautiful Aotearoa New Zealand with my family. I am based in Wellington but can provide support to parents anywhere in the world!
I am a fully qualified primary school teacher and certified as a Peaceful Parent Instructor by The Peaceful Parent Institute, New Zealand.

I’ve worked with hundreds of children (and their parents) over the last two decades and taught in an inner-city school before making the decision to be a full-time parent to my two daughters. I know first-hand how challenging but utterly rewarding parenting is!

My coaching centres around working with parents who are looking for more joy and connection in their relationships with their children. Parents who want to treat their children with kindness and respect. Parents who are going against what society currently tells us about parenting, and perhaps breaking generational cycles.

So how do I do this? I have a number of ways that you can choose to work with me because how hard it can be as a parent to find space and time for anything else!

How we parent can change the world. Treating our children with love, kindness and respect means they will treat others the same way.

Experience and Qualifications


My background is in education, and I have always known that I have wanted to work with children and their families.


I am a qualified primary school teacher and have worked with children from birth to 11 years old for over twenty years!


Since deciding to work with families as a coach I have become certified as a Peaceful Parent Instructor. I have experience in Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and Early Trauma. My  safeguarding training is also current.


As well as my professional experience, I am also a parent to two daughters and step-parent to a teenager. 

Professional Development

Continuing my professional development is extremely important. This means that I keep myself up to date on parenting literature and research. I refresh my training as often as can.
