Parent Coaching

Are you at a loss when it comes to parenting?

Do you feel frustrated, stuck, and worried about the relationship with your child(ren)? Dealing with the never-ending demands of being a parent makes you feel like you’re drowning.

The happy moments you experience with your kids, if any, are short-lived. You miss the days when you felt excited to see your kids. Maybe you’ve noticed them lashing out at you or pulling away from you. Perhaps your child is struggling with sadness and you don’t know where to turn. You might be wondering where you went wrong.

You’ve tried every trick in the book

Let’s face it: kids test our patience in ways no one else can. You love your kids, but sometimes you don’t like them very much. And that’s okay. Often you feel like their emotional punching bag, absorbing continuous blows of negativity. Maybe you want them to try harder in school and make better choices. Or perhaps you’ve become so distant that you don’t know much about their life right now.

Every stage of parenting has its struggles

You might feel like a failure as a parent. It’s difficult to talk about this with people in your life. You might fear judgment or unsolicited advice from others. The truth is that parenting isn’t a one-size-fits-all. How effective you are as a parent is heavily influenced by:

  • Your child’s age
  • Changes in behavior
  • Mental health diagnoses
  • Life changes
  • Family trauma, and more

You don’t have to struggle alone

Our therapists provide a non-judgemental space to talk about parenting challenges. Parent coaching with our therapists means learning techniques that are tailored to your family’s needs. If you’re ready to make changes in your household, parent coaching is for you. Parent coaching can be done individually, with your partner, or as co-parents. Learning new techniques can be effective at all ages, from newborns to adult children and beyond.
