Create positive change in your life. Uncover a healthier, happier you!
Parenting can be frustrating and challenging! Parenting is perhaps the most difficult job, however we receive little or no formal training in how to become better parents.
Together we will work towards developing better communication and relationship with your child. I employ a model which is based on Dan Hughes’s theory of PACE. Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy. PACE is a way of thinking, feeling, communicating and behaving that aims to make the child feel safe and respected.
The goal is to help avoid fruitless responses, by learning effective ways of managing your child’s behaviour, but also to develop a better understanding of yourself.
Some of the problems that parents struggle with:
Feeling stressed and anxious
A poor relationship with your child
Concerns for your child future
Understanding your own childhood and how it may affect the relationship
Lacking parents skills and confidence
Having differences with your partner about parenting skills.
Counselling can help you and your family to have more peace and happiness.
