Parenting & Family Therapy

Parent guidance and family therapy helps children, adolescents and families manage a range of difficulties. Parenting is often challenging as we respond to the needs of different children at changing stages of development. Furthermore parents are influenced by memories from their own childhood experiences, which may serve to support or hinder their own parenting skills.

 

In families, parents and kids are all part of an interdependent system. When a child or adolescent struggles with a problem other family members are affected. Also the family’s response to the problem will greatly influence how the child or adolescent deals with it.

 

A collaborative and respectful approach works with families to build from their strengths and move them through difficult and challenging times. The goal is to empower and guide the family in becoming a resource to help children and adolescents overcome their problems.
