Raising children is challenging, even overwhelming at times – even for child therapists! And as a parent, knowing what to do is not always automatic or instinctive. The relationships we had with our parents are often mirrored in our relationships with our children and most of the time it’s unconscious. We can often get stuck in old ways of relating that neither feel good nor represent how we would like to be.
Learning to communicate effectively with your child is a crucial part of having a healthy and ongoing relationship with them. For parents who are struggling to understand their child’s behaviours and are looking for a better way to connect and create a harmonious family household, you’ve come to the right place.
We support families through a range of parental guidance counselling and coaching services that are designed to empower parents and promote conscious parenting or mindful parenting. Our goal is to help parents become the best versions of themselves, improve their psychological wellbeing and feel good about their role so that they can feel confident in nurturing compassionate, independent and resilient children.
The methods employed by our specially trained and experienced child play therapists are evidenced-based, backed by trauma, attachment and neuroscience research on the developing brain of the child. As part of our parenting support, we offer a range of supports in the form of:
- Parent education and/or coaching
- Parent child therapy (Filial Therapy)
- Parenting programs & workshops
Our parent support approach resources parents/caregivers and enhances their toolkit to better understand what is driving their children’s behaviours, feel more confident in responding effectively towards challenging behaviours, while at the same time, preserving the relationship between parents and children. By creating new connections in your child’s developing brain, they will develop strong emotional and social skills that will serve them now and throughout their entire life.
