“Problems are not the problem. Coping is the problem.”
I offer parent coaching to parents of children and teenagers that is informed by my Parent Mentoring studies with Dr Tony Humphreys and developmental trauma training with Stephen Terrell. I understand the substantial challenges parents face at home and the great difference a little help and support can make.
Come with your questions and leave with an understanding of your child’s behaviour & better responses in any parenting challenge you face.
What does a Parent Coach do?
Parent Coaching supports and encourages parents with an understanding of what their child/teen may be feeling. Together with the parent, we look at a different interaction that achieves a different result.
The feedback I’ve received from my sessions are that my suggestions are practical, offering tips and skills that really make a difference in parenting. Getting to the feelings that underlie the challenging behaviour is critical and when we know how the child feels, we tend to respond in a way that works better. We find better ways of dealing with behaviour and this helps to create a calmer and happier home.
