Our Parenting Consultant is a counsellor with a special interest in parenting and, of course, is a parent herself. The aim of our parenting service is to give you space to talk about the challenges you are facing. The counsellor will then use her expertise in this area to help you to find the best route forward.
Unfortunately, there is no “one size fits all” approach, however, there is always something that can be done to make things better and families happier and calmer. By having this space to talk, our clients can really put things into perspective and get some clarity on the situation.
Our counsellor’s knowledge is invaluable, as the service often provides clients with that missing piece of information that suddenly makes things clearer. We call it the ‘Aha moment’. From there, you can work together on a parenting programme, over 6 sessions, that will bring about real change and get you back to parenting more effectively.
One-to-one counselling is offered from age 13 and onwards. The first session is usually between the Young Adult Counsellor and the parents of the young adult. This gives the parents the opportunity to talk about any issues they believe their son or daughter may be facing. This is also an opportunity for the parents to meet the counsellor that their loved one will be working with.
Post natal depression
More than 1 in every 10 women get affected by postnatal depression within a year of giving birth. It is a serious mental health problem that can have a significant impact on the mother/father, baby and family. It is very important to get help as soon as possible if you think you might be depressed. If you are having difficulty bonding with your baby, get in touch with us sooner rather than later.
