Parenting is one of the most valuable and rewarding jobs any of us will ever encounter, it can also be a very big challenge. With so many changes with each developmental milestone it can be hard to know where to turn. Children can feel overwhelmed with ‘big’ feelings, leaving the child or young person to respond in the “flight, flight or freeze” response, these big feelings therefore leave a child feeling “out of control”. A parent seeing their child struggling with upsetting or ‘bad’ behaviour. I am here to support you and your family to help understand these feelings but also to help with strategies using a varied theoretical models, to help your child to fully understand themselves but to also feel more in control.
This can be an added to your child seeking counselling and work well as systemic family practice. Being able to engage with a young person and their parents/ or carers will enable us to create a partnership and develop a positive alliance while working collaboratively.
