Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs – it can be wonderful, funny and exciting but can also be exhausting, difficult, overwhelming and a whole lot of pressure too. There are so many opinions and judgements out there, that you start to doubt your own instincts and how you want to parent. Expectations are high – we feel we should know better, do better and be better parents for our children.
All ages bring their own challenges – from the baby that won’t sleep to the teenager coping with exam stress. There may be situations you want to handle differently or change completely. Working out the best way forward can be tough and at times it can feel that things are getting worse rather than better.
Life can be especially hard if your child has additional needs or if you are dealing with difficult life events such as separation, divorce or bereavement. Knowing how to support your child in the best way when life is tough can be even more challenging when trying to cope with your own feelings and emotions.
If this sounds familiar – we can help. By exploring and unpicking your concerns together we can start to understand the reasons why things happen. Each family, parent and child is different and unique, so we appreciate that one size does not fit all. We build bespoke programmes for families and offer support whilst changes are put in place. We work with you and focus on what you feel needs to change, giving individual, practical strategies so that you can start to enjoy family life again and gain greater balance through the ups and downs of being a parent.
Putting these changes into action may not be easy but with guidance, encouragement and support you will find that you understand your child better, have an improved relationship with them and will have a ‘tool kit’ of strategies that adapt and work for you.
We are based in Kent and can offer coaching in your home, depending on location. Alternatively, we are able to offer telephone, e-mail or skype support, regardless of where you live. We have worked with people locally, nationally and even supported families in America! We have a flexible pricing structure depending on the service you would like so please contact us to discuss whether we are the right service for you, and which of our services would best meet the needs of your family.
I was extremely happy with their services and assistance, helping my children to come to terms with our separation and pending divorce. They were recommended to me by another family and I would highly recommend them.
Fantastic course content, fantastic facilitators. Acceptance, understanding, support from rest of group and facilitators. Tips and techniques I wouldn’t have thought of. BRILLIANT
A great fun course, very informative, interesting and helped me review my setting, my practice and what I need to change.
Good communication between course tutors and participants and run at the right pace. Tutors were knowledgeable and able to give different perspectives.
We are working individually with families through telephone, Zoom or Skype.
Now that restrictions have lifted, we are again able to offer home visiting alongside the online and telephone support, depending on distance.
If you would like more information, we offer a free, no obligation call so we can discuss your concerns and whether we would be the right service for you.
