Parent Coaching

Parent therapy/coaching is a type of therapeutic support that is beneficial for addressing a wide range of challenges that parents may face in their journey of raising children. During the initial appointment, the therapist and parent(s), will explore the current issues and dynamic of the family and together make a plan for the following sessions. Most parents experience positive changes in their families within 3-4 sessions and the greatest benefit when attending regularly for 3 to 4 months. 

Benefits of Parental Therapy/Coaching:

Behavior management: Parent coaching can assist parents in understanding and addressing challenging behaviors in their children, such as tantrums, aggression, defiance, or lack of cooperation. Coaches can provide strategies and techniques to promote positive behavior and effective discipline methods.

Communication and relationship building: Parent coaching can enhance communication skills between parents and their children, as well as within the family as a whole. Coaches can help parents develop more effective and empathetic communication styles, fostering stronger and healthier relationships with their kids.

Parenting through different stages of development: Each stage of a child's development presents unique challenges. Parent coaching can support parents in understanding their child's needs at various ages and guide them in adjusting their parenting approach accordingly, from infancy through adolescence.

Managing parental stress and self-care: Raising children can be demanding and stressful. Parent coaching can help parents recognize and manage their stress levels, providing tools to maintain their well-being and promoting self-care practices. A balanced and emotionally healthy parent can better support their child's growth and development.

The parents as a couple:  Parents become focused on all that has to be accomplished in their homes and careers and can lose sight of the couple that they are.  Communication and connection can suffer which compounds the stress and tension parenting can bring when dealing with challenging circumstances. 

Overall, parent coaching offers personalized guidance and support to parents, empowering them to navigate the complexities of parenting and create a positive and nurturing environment for their children and the family.
