parenting
/ˈpɛːrəntɪŋ/ (noun)
the activity of bringing up a child as a parent.

That is the dictionary definition of Parenting. But the dictionary can’t define YOU.

Parenting – wow I wonder how Parenting feels for you? Does it marry up to the pictures and the text that you read about before you had children, or during pregnancy?

Maybe you have come into a “ready-made” family and feel like you are on one pretty steep learning curve…

Parenting feels to me like you ‘should’ know everything and have all the answers, but why? And more importantly, how could you know everything and have all the answers, even if you wanted to?

Even if you have two or more kids, they would be unique just like you and me. So the “rule book” will change for every child, at every stage of their lives – and yours too! Perhaps you’ve been one of two parents living together but are now a single parent? Or do you have a new partner and are trying to integrate them into your family?

Parenting always makes me think back to the book we read at school about Goldilocks and The Three Bears where everyone eats porridge together and gets on superbly, and where Baby Bear is good as gold. But that was a fairy tale, right? And we all know life doesn’t play out that way, don’t we?

You know that all too well! And that’s probably what landed you on my website and specifically this page!

Maybe you are struggling to communicate with your child.  Maybe you feel that every time you try to talk to them it is like stepping into a war zone! Perhaps you’re worried about your child or children, maybe they have become withdrawn? Maybe you are separating from your partner or you simply feel something just isn’t right.

Counselling will allow you to talk about any worries, or concerns between you and your child – even anger between you and your child. And don’t worry. No other parent will find out about this or judge you for it.
