Parent Consultations

Parenting can be one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in life. However, we are not given a manual in how to understand underlying issues during difficult times for our child.

Each stage of development can present with different challenges and at times parents may feel at a loss as to how to support their child in the most comforting and containing way.

Many parents do not want their child to be pathologised and thus may seek to explore and gain insight into their child and their needs, as a way of strengthening their relationship and be better equipped into how to respond.

There are times when it is a valuable experience and a learning opportunity to discuss worries with an experienced professional regarding your child and explore what may be behind the difficulties they are experiencing.

How we could work together

In our work together, we will look at what you feel the difficulties are for your child and what you are worried about.

Together we will explore your relationship with your child, family dynamics, school, your child’s early history and any other significant experiences, as a way of reaching a formulation as to why your child may currently be presenting with some kind of distress.

My formulation will help provide you with deeper insight into your child as well as help support you in understanding what your child may need from you both practically and emotionally.

Together we may also further explore how to support your child’s resilience by looking at how wider networks such as school, so you child is supported by other people they are in relationship with.

Clarity

Many parents feel relief once they make contact as they no longer feel isolated with their worries, and feel that this will help them gain confidence, insight and clarity into their parenting style, allowing them to support their child in a deeper, and more mindful way.

Length of Sessions

Initial parent consultations last 75 minutes and cost £90.

Thereafter, sessions are 50 minutes at the regular session price.

Each case is different and it is difficult to recommend how many consultations are required, however, I always recommend two consultations – one for assessment and one as a follow up.

We can discuss together how many consultations may be needed but it’s ultimately your decision how many further consultations you wish to attend.

Signposting and recommendations

There may be times where more specialist support may be needed and I can offer recommendations as well as how you can access these.
