If you have found your way here I appreciate you are reaching out for support. Taking the first step to reaching out to someone; especially a stranger takes courage. Maybe you are feeling stuck, overwhelmed, experiencing a life transition: divorce, grief, becoming a parent, children leaving home. Unable to find the strength to cope with change and difficult decisions. Counselling can be a life changing experience; our present struggles and feelings can be a turning point towards a new direction. Counselling is a collaborative task and it is my endeavour to travel alongside you on your journey as you discover new ways to move forward

I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step into therapy , which in itself can increase the physical and psychological responses and increase fear of not being able to cope . I would hope that a client would be able to achieve their goals to manage their anxiety and live life more freely , being able to yes to things more often and live life more fearlessly. My work has also been to support bereavement, where therapy aims to make adjustments for life now .

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
