Coaching gives you an opportunity to identify what you want from your parenting role, where you want to take it and how you might get there.
1:1 or with couples, Parent Coaching can give you the option to work on your family issues in a fully confidential setting. You can do this in person, or through Skype.
I will actively listen to you; acknowledging and encouraging you to gain a deeper sense of what it is you are trying to say. I will draw together threads and patterns which emerge; giving you a different view of your experience, a different perspective for you to explore. I will respectfully challenge what I hear; if it strikes me as being relevant and in response to what you are saying. I will offer you the knowledge I have gained, if I think it will help you. You can choose whether or not to take it.
I am a Certified Parenting Educator (Parent Effectiveness Training) and I have over 20 years experience of working with the Person Centred Approach (Carl Rogers, Humanistic Psychology). This includes an excellent understanding of the Theory of Personality – how children grow and develop; and how parents can provide an environment which can support constructive personality change. To this I have been adding knowledge of Neuroscience (brain development in Children) and I am a Licensed Practitioner in Neuro Linguistic Programming.
I believe that you are the expert on your family. Once you have the information you need, you will be able to find the solutions that will work for you. The aim is for you to find the answers from within yourself; answers that are based on your values, preferences and unique perspective.
The value of talking is being able to hear yourself talk through these options; and once you have explored them all, decisions will follow quite naturally.
