A Happier, Healthier You
Parent Coaching involves one or both of the parental figures in a family unit. This type of treatment helps you identify your own strengths and weaknesses in your behavior and communication with the child. Treatment can either be in conjunction with the child’s treatment or separately for a more individualized, long term approach. Without judgement, the counselor can use evidence-based treatment to aid in improving the relationships in the family unit.
Here are a few issues that parent coaching can be useful for
How to manage your own feelings and stress surrounding discipline.
Behavioral issues such as defiance or aggressive behavior between siblings.
Difficult transitions such as divorce or loss of a loved one.
Strategies to support working through your own trauma to be a better parent.
Issues limiting screen time
Parenting children with Autism, ADHD or eating disorders.
Parent coaching can be solely focused on your family, or done in a group setting with other parents working through similar issues.
