Staying safe is absolutely simple and attainable with the right tools and information.

Be Introduced to Your Power!


Imagine noticing someone following you around the store and not being concerned about it.  What if you were able to address and stop unwanted attention - even from a boss or friend's husband - and without worrying about backlash?  What if you felt safe attending night classes or picking up extra cash working the night shift?  How relieved would you be if you could just get into your car with your children without stressing? 

What if you could safely assist your child through a meltdown or outburst?  And keep everyone safe during sibling rivalry?  Or maybe you have a loved one struggling with addiction, dementia or other mental health concerns that causes safety concerns? What if you could set boundaries with your mother in law or even your ex?  And be absolutely sure your kids are safe at school or with the nanny or babysitter - without a nanny cam?

You deserve the freedom of all of the above and more.

So many expect and accept women and children experience trauma and need therapists and help recovering from life experiences. What a nightmare! Beating Disaster provides what you and your children need to know about becoming unlikely and difficult targets from the actual harm women and children experience, which happens not only at the hands of strangers but also acquaintances and even friends or family. 

Your family deserves to be safe from harm.  

There's no protection like prevention.  Ditch worry.  Be PREPARED.  Enjoy life.

What Our Clients Say

KeySlinger Training changed my life! Now I know that's a bold statement, but let me tell you why. I am more safe and secure going and leaving all of my daily activities. Parking garage at work - not a concern anymore. Grocery shopping with my kid - no worries. Not only can my KeySlinger accompany me to and from places it's also discreet and can travel past metal detectors. 


With this training I was able to learn skills I could immediately use after leaving.  The techniques are easily doable for even a petite person, like myself. Thanks to Beating Disaster I enjoy peace of mind and a greater sense of security from being well trained on how to protect myself.”​
