It can be unknowingly growing up with a parent who struggled with their own mental health.
If you've noticed you're not feeling the same joy you used to and you're worrying about things you didn't used to but you're not sure anyone can help counselling really is the first step towards feeling so much better. I know my own counselling journey changed my life and that is why I am so passionate about what I do. When we understand where our negative patterns stem from we can change our whole lives and break the cycle for our own children. There are reasons why you are struggling and together we can figure out why you are so stuck. Life can feel so much better and this really is the first step.

Are you a parent looking for support for your child? Perhaps you have noticed that they are struggling in their daily life, that they no longer engage in hobbies or family activities, or that they are finding school difficult. Perhaps you are finding their behaviour difficult to manage and this is starting to impact the whole family. Or maybe you simply want to understand your child better. I work with a range of difficulties, from everyday problems through to more complex issues related to mental health and child development. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and I will adapt my approach to suit you, your child and your family.

My main focus is always on creating a safe therapeutic relationship where we can think creatively together about the difficulties you might be facing. I particularly enjoy working with neurodivergent young people and adults, exploring together how they experience the world. I work predominantly from a trauma-informed perspective and a lot of my work with neurodivergent families focusses on the parent-child relationship.

Hello I’m Selene. I have 20 years of experience as a counsellor. I am a warm and open-minded person with a good sense of humour. I offer a welcoming and confidential space where we can together create an empowering therapeutic relationship. I believe you are an expert in your own life and my role is to support and challenge you reconnecting with yourself and your strengths. Counselling is an opportunity to give yourself the time and space to imagine who you want to be. Sometimes fear and shame make us stuck and disconnected from others and not able to ask for what we want. Therapy can help you free yourself and open connection.

Many people feel lost and bereft in an ever-changing and challenging world, and some of you may also be impacted by significant issues from childhood or later interpersonal relationships. This can lead to feelings of 'stuckness', hopelessness or depression, and that you cannot escape or be free from past experiences. For others, you may find that you have anxiety, relationship difficulties or general stress and burnout. Some people may have experienced significant losses and you may find yourself questioning what you want from life and what is really meaningful to you.

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.
