About Tomlin
A leading specialist in human development, parenting and neuropsychology, Tomlin is a researcher, educator, writer and activist, as well as being a neurodivergent mum of four, a Taekwondo coach and a radical empath. My role at CalmFamily is to provide leadership throughout the organisation and to strategically develop everything that we do according to our mission and values, helping families to have calmer and happier relationships. First and foremost I will always be a mum. My husband and I have four beautiful children, ranging in age from 16 to 3. Everyday I am filled with all the joy and stress that brings, and manage that through a combination of yoga, mindfulness meditation and Taekwondo (kicking stuff is amazing stress relief). Well mainly by having an amazing support network. ​ Parenting is one of the toughest and most rewarding things anyone can do and it certainly hasn’t come easy for me. I am so grateful to have found BabyCalm and ToddlerCalm and for the wonderful journey it has taken me on. Not to mention what the future holds. We are lucky enough to live in the New Forest near to the beach and so live an active and outdoors (ish) lifestyle. Though I am actually a complete geek and my passions lie in worlds more exciting than our own so you can often find me immersed in books or indeed re-watching my many films. I have always been fascinated with child development and first studied for a Diploma in Childhood studies after school. Later I got a degree in Business and a post graduate diploma in Human Resources (specialising in organisational development) and spent 6 years training and supporting managers in the NHS. I realised though that my passion lies with helping families to grow together with confidence and so moved on to teaching, guiding and supporting parents. I love accumulating knowledge and so I study at every opportunity.
