Counselling can help you be the parent you want to be and cope more effectively with family life

Being a parent can bring a real sense of purpose and joy to your life, feel amazing and fun, yet it has its challenges too - such as coping with stress, resolving family tension, being on the 'same page' when it comes to parenting as a couple, feeling confident when interacting with your child and dealing with child-related issues.

Counselling can help you with these challenges, and provide a safe space to acknowledge and express feelings of frustration, anger, fear, anxiety, guilt or shame. It can also help you work through any personal struggles.

As a person-centred counsellor, I'm interested in nurturing your potential, and you can reach out to me if your childhood experiences are preventing you from being the parent you want to be or creating worry about becoming a parent.

The way you parent, or might parent in the future, is often influenced by your own experiences as a child, and so counselling with me might include:

  • Working through childhood trauma, including neglect, physical, emotional or sexual abuse
  • Understanding your parenting style/approach and how you learned your current parenting strategies
  • Letting-go of strategies that feel unhelpful/unhealthy for you and your family
  • Strengthening helpful/healthy strategies and learning new ones if appropriate
  • Building your confidence and self-esteem and feeling 'good enough' as a parent.

    I am a parent myself, as well as a person-centred parenting counsellor, and I can also support you with any of the following:

  • If you've suffered pregnancy loss, including ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage or had to terminate a pregnancy for medical reasons
  • If you're experiencing perinatal or postnatal depression or anxiety, birth trauma, or have concerns about any of these
  • If you're parenting a child suspected of or diagnosed with autism
  • If you're caring for a seriously ill partner or child or struggling to cope with the death of a partner or child
  • If you're parenting with a disability, long-term physical or mental health issue
  • If you're a survivor of domestic abuse and are worried about the effects on children and teens
  • If you're concerned about your teen's behaviour or relationships or are finding it difficult to talk to and understand your teen
  • If you're considering or going through separation, divorce or relationship breakup.

    I provide a safe space where you can explore and reflect upon your experiences and feelings, gain new insights and perspectives, and make choices and changes that feel right for you.

    My approach is warm, genuine, understanding and non-judgemental, and I will provide information and feedback when it feels helpful to do so.

    I will work alongside you at your pace, for as long as you need.
