Parent Consultations / Parenting Support
Parents may often feel very overwhelmed with the increasing demands and stress of raising a child. This pressure generates from a number of sources, including
the fears that come with the massive responsibility of child rearing. As children move along their developmental trajectory, parents have to adjust and
adapt to the changes. This can be a difficult, confusing and confronting process, particularly throughout adolescence. Consulting with a therapist can
help to normalise children’s behaviours and work towards achieving a solid understanding of their presenting issues. Leanne has a strong belief in mindful
and conscious parenting in order to foster positive self-esteem and resilience in children.
General parenting skills, behaviour management and guidance with tuning into the emotions of the child and learning how to emotion coach a child are common
topics that are explored when providing support to parents while they perform the hardest job on earth!
