Parent sessions or school meetings are offered alongside a child’s therapy.
Is your child struggling emotionally? Perhaps they have been dealt a blow, lost trust in others, feel confused or overwhelmed by their experiences. Perhaps unwelcome feelings are being expressed through their behaviour, affecting their relationships, schooling and denying them of care and opportunities. They could be experiencing a range of social-emotional difficulties (e.g. anxiety, low mood, trauma, relationship, bereavement, neurodiversity, identity). Psychotherapy can help you and your child to better understand their problems, reduce worrying symptoms, and help them make better use of future opportunities and relationships.

I am a qualified play therapist and child and parent relationship trainer. I work with children and their families as a therapist and coach. Parents get in touch for an array of reasons. Play therapy offers a safe space where children can process difficult emotions and experiences, build their confidence, reduce their anxiety and begin to recognise and regulate their emotions amongst many other things. CPRT offers parents an opportunity to learn the child centred skills play therapists use in the playroom which enable a parent to respond to behaviours rather than react and reduce conflict at home.

Growing up has never been easy but perhaps due to the ever-changing circumstances, it is becoming even more difficult for children and young people with so many things they have to navigate or are exposed to. When children struggle emotionally, whether they are toddlers or teenagers, either their behaviour detoriate or unhealthy ways to deal with those strong emotions emerge. Either option can be scary and not many will be willing to talk about what is in their mind or is upsetting them.

People seek therapy for many different reasons. It can be to unblock creativity, or to explore the past. Some people come because they are experiencing difficult or unwanted feelings, such as anxiety or sadness. Some suffer from symptoms such as sleeplessness that are connected to their feelings. Whatever brings you to therapy, the psychoanalytic approaches I offer can deepen your understanding. I do not charge for the initial session, which is a chance for us to get to know one another and see if we can work well together. Please visit www.alistaircormacktherapy.com and contact me using the form you find there or give me a call.

We all know the routine: "How are you?" "I'm fine, thanks" – the standard response, hiding a deeper truth. Beneath the brave face, you might be feeling less connected to loved ones, friends, or even yourself. Sometimes anxious, as though in a crowded room yet completely alone. Perhaps the energy needed to connect has disappeared, leaving you feeling less able to engage? Or, maybe you’re aware of a sensation of emptiness or loss? Talking about your true feelings can sometimes be a daunting first step, but it's also the most important one towards feeling better.

A warm hello and thank you for taking a look at my profile. I'm a qualified integrative counsellor, who offers a safe, professional, and caring space where I sit with my clients to explore what hurts. Experiences such as anxiety, loneliness, depression, loss, injury, trauma, abuse, identity, life direction and meaning, family issues, low self-esteem are often painful. They can also be seen as our internal system telling us to take a closer look at what's going on inside. Experience has shown me that taking the time to gently explore life events and related thoughts, feelings and behaviours with curiosity can be life-changing.

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.
