Parents and Carers

 

I offer consultations for parents and carers to have space to discuss any concerns they maybe having about their child.

This space is used to explore the concerns followed by gathering historical information and the situation now.

Together we explore the whole family system, including the wider system which may involve professionals, school etc. We will become detectives in working out together how the patterns in the system maybe impacting behaviours and if we can find any subtle ways in which we can change the system to improve concerns.

We will also develop strategies together and experiment with  ideas to see if they help in anyway.

The process is explorative and supportive. Many parents who come to see me feel unsupported and a bit battered by external systems.

 

A safe space to talk
