I want to let you know you are not alone and that there are many options and ways to support your child and your family through the tougher times to begin enjoying the happier times.
I provide support in many ways – through group courses which create a beautifully supportive connection between the parents. One-to-one therapy can be for the child, the parent or the family as a whole. Sharing resources such as books and articles to read as well as my informative blogs also gives you a great place to start. Empowering your child to gain the resources of resilience is one of the best gifts a parent can pass on to their children.
Whether you are interested in understanding how your upbringing has shaped you, looking to handle your child’s feelings or wishing to support your partner, you will find indispensable information and realistic tips in these pages.
