Fear of judgement from others can prevent us from seeking advice and support about your child's behaviour.

 

It is a relief to talk about what you and your family are experiencing and I can offer you an impartial and non-judgemental consultation where we can discuss your family difficulty and agree a way forward. These sessions will be of fifty minutes duration at a frequency which suits you.

 

There can be many different ways of meeting; my preferred method would be to meet with the parent(s) and child and listen to the issues. Then together we consider what may be the best way forward.

 

Besides working with conventional families, when working in the Post-Adoption service I was struck by the emotional impact on adoptive parents. I have worked closely with them as well as with step-parents, foster parents and others whose difficulties may arise from parenting children not born to them.

 

My experience of working with those in different parenting roles is that it can bring up feelings of loss or highlight other difficulties we have thought had been forgotten or resolved. 

 

If however, during the consultation process there are issues that are better treated through another agency I will make the appropriate referral.

Being a parent is one of the most frequently underestimated, challenging roles, especially if it creates conflict or causes misery.

We can underestimate how much our own experience of being a child influences how we are as parents.
