We are experienced Clinical Child Psychologists and parents of young children. We know first hand the frustrations and challenges of parenting and have developed a parenting programme addressing these issues in order to have a less stressful, more confident and more enjoyable experience of being a parent.
We come across many parents who feel they want some sort of professional reassurance, guidance or direct help around certain issues in order to navigate the torrent of often conflicting parenting information coming their way. Our course takes a practical approach so that you can begin to see positive changes quickly and the small group size enables us to take into account your individual needs. The course content gives you a core set of tried and tested parenting skills, while our professional background helps to take this further than a ?one size fits all? approach, through a better understanding of your child and your parenting style.
The course covers the following areas:
?Increasing confidence in you and your child
?Building a better relationship with your child
?Increasing cooperation and dealing with general non-compliance
?Finding alternatives to shouting, nagging and feeling out of control
?Setting and maintaining limits for behaviours including bedtime battles, fussy eating, sibling rivalry, aggression and tantrums
?Managing your own emotions and dealing with the bigger picture; This will be a space to think about your parenting style and to consider how your own life and experiences impact on how you relate to your child. This knowledge and understanding will increase the success of the techniques and strategies discussed above.
?A framework for thinking about and managing new parenting challenges as they arise.
We also deliver talks, presentations or workshops to groups of parents, colleagues or professionals. These can be on either general or specific parenting issues. Please do contact us to discuss your requirements.
