A deeper self-understanding can help you raise children to thrive. Parent Therapy is a good practice to understand your own experiences and feelings about life and parenting and how this may impact your child.
Parenting can be stressful and emotionally challenging. It's a significant life change that is difficult to prepare for. Many of us adopt parenting techniques from our parents and our past experiences. Sometimes, though, our parenting models aren't always healthy, or we simply are overwhelmed with our new responsibility and life shift along with the emotions that come with it.
Therapy can guide you to become mindful of your experiences, insecurities, and anxieties around parenting. It can create new perspectives and positive resolutions for everyday problems and situations.
Some of the reasons clients seek parent counselling include:
• Postpartum depression or anxiety
• First time parenting anxieties
• Relationship changes (with partners, family, and friends)
• Labour anxieties
• Postpartum body image
• Parenting strategies
'There is no such thing as the perfect parent, just a good parent'.
