Parenting can be a time of exquisite joy, hope, and love. It can also be maddening, confusing and tiring. I’ve been there.
I love parenting. I have three wonderful children, two of whom are now adults and one who is about half way there!
My love of parenting has carried over into my professional life. For many years, I ran a drop-in program at a family resource centre. And I have helped parents from diverse walks of life to better understand kids through my workshops and seminars.
But sometimes, a one-on-one approach is needed. Through my parent consulting practice, I help families address their children’s challenging, confusing and troubling behaviours.
I do not offer prescriptive strategies. I help parents make sense of their children’s behaviours through a developmental perspective inspired by the Neufeld approach. This enables my clients to address the root of the problem – the underlying emotions that drive difficult behaviours.
