Counselling provides a safe space where parents and caregivers can discuss and think about their parenting challenges. It empowers parents to develop positive ways of dealing with them. Counselling is both a therapeutic and skills transfer opportunity that enables parents to focus on particular issues facing them in a one-on-one setting.
Some of the topics covered include:
An increasing number of divorced parents are requesting counselling to navigate the complexities and distresses of co-parenting. This process is fraught with emotional distress for both parents, however, it is in the best interest of the children that co-parenting conflict is reduced. Both parents can focus on drawing up a Parenting Plan and putting in place measures that allow them to navigate into a new sustainable and proactive co-parenting relationship that can adapt to changing developmental and life changes of their children and family.
We are currently developing a four-session co-parenting workshop that will enable a group of parents to work through the complexities of co-parenting.
