Parent Counselling

Are you feeling overwhelmed, unsure of how to talk to your kids, or bracing for another tantrum? Maybe your teenager doesn't talk to you or is rude? Maybe you notice that you yell too much because nothing else seems to work. I want you to know that your child's difficulties are not your fault. However, you are in a unique position to make a change and support your loved ones.

Do you want to make changes and not know where to begin? Maybe you feel like a not good enough parent? We all have those days!

As a mother, I get that. I understand how it feels. I have been there myself. Sometimes it takes more than Parenting 101 or intuitive parenting, and we need advanced skills in order to help our loved ones to navigate the challenges. Parenting support is based on evidence-based practices and utilizes Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT).
