The parenting programme is run under the Helping Kids brand and consists of personal coaching sessions with parents to help them understand their strengths and parenting style, create a family vision and learn the skills to achieve it.
Parenting coaching is not about shaming you. I won’t be telling you that everything you are doing wrong or judging your skills. Not only is it not my role to judge you as a parent, but I also believe that we all do the best we can in a situation. Parents act out of love, with the skills and knowledge that they have.
Parenting is a very demanding profession in which, at best, we are poorly trained. When things start to feel tough it affects our confidence and ability to help those around us, be they partners or children. Our work is to help you get back on track, utilising your strengths, personal vision and your desire for your family.
We will only work areas important for you and your family. These might be around correcting behaviour, building a strong family ethos, communication with your children, or growing and evolving with them as they get older. We aim to equip you with the skills you need to feel empowered as the best coach for your children. We support you to enjoy the process, confident that you are doing the best that you can.
The positive parenting programme consists of five sessions plus a free introductory session. We set clearly defined goals and outcomes. Each programme is tailored to your need and goals. The sessions last for an hour and in our consultation room in Ealing. In special circumstances we can arrange home visits, but they tend to produce slower results. In some cases we advise joint sessions with partners or another member of the family and these can be very helpful for all the participants.
