Find out how individual and/or couple counselling may support you in your role as a parent. Parenting, though rewarding, may still be one of the most difficult and time-consuming aspects of a person’s life. In addition to tending to an infant or child’s daily needs, parents are also generally responsible for helping each of their children develop life skills, social skills, and appropriate behaviors, while accounting for the unique personality of each child.

Parenting can be as challenging as it can be rewarding! Our children can bring great joy to our lives as we support them on their journey to adulthood. At the same time, parenting can be frustrating, thankless and just hard work, particularly when children move into their teenage years.


Examples of when you may consider counselling

  Your child refuses to go to school or is constantly getting into trouble at school?

  Teenage children seem to be drifting, gets in with the ‘wrong’ crowd or starts to experiment with drugs or alcohol?

  You find your child no longer listens to you, respects you or behaves abusively towards you?

  To address issues affecting the family as a result of child developmental and/or behavior concerns.


How may counselling help

  Parents can become aware of issues that need to be resolved

  Explore parenting skills, and couple counselling helps to strengthen partnership in parents and allow them to become better able to resolve disagreements about child-rearing or family life.

  Target stress that may arise with parenting which could manifest itself through worry, depression, irritability, or anger
