Parents

I offer therapeutic consultation for parents.

I provide expertise and help to parents who are worried about their child's/ adolescents behaviour or well being.

Parents can find it helpful to have space to think about their child's/adolescents specific difficulties and whether psychotherapeutic or psychatric treatment is needed. Sometimes a childs behaviour can be understood as a communication about wider difficulties and I offer a thinking space to help make sense of what might seem random or rebellious behaviour. 

 

Relationships between parents and children can often get out of step or derailed, particularly coming into adolescence, despite the love that parents feel, leaving both parties hurt and lonely. Repairing relationships between  parental couples and between children can bring huge positive shifts.  

 

Often parents do not notice destructive patterns that have been set up over the years, between themselves and about the best way to manage their children, sibling rivalries and family myths and secrets which shape dynamics, often at an unspoken level. Sometimes just opening up conversations about these hard to talk about issues can be a huge relief to everyone.
