How do we help parents and caregivers?

01 Counselling Techniques

Counsellors use a trauma informed, client centred approach to learning and change. Each counselling practitioner has their individual approach to working with clients, which is drawn from multiple professionals in their respective fields.

02 Education programs

We facilitate the Bringing Up Great Kids program, which is a trauma informed parenting program designed by the Australian Childhood Foundation. We offer the program several times each year. Each group runs for 6 weeks and each session goes for 2 hours.

Our key differences

Finding a balance between maintaining connection with your child/teen and discipline can be challenging at times.  Extensive research shows that we cannot influence children to change their behaviour and learn new ways if we do not have a connection with them or them with us.

Leading expert Dan Hughes speaks to 4 simple skills that support parents and caregivers to maintain connection during rewarding and challenging times. These skills when used as part of everyday interactions within the parent /child relationship can reduce the impacts of conflict and support the building of boundaries and reinforcing positive behaviours.

P is for PLAYFUL: When we are PLAYFUL in our parenting approach we do so in a reassuring light-hearted way with a calm and engaging attitude towards our child irrespective of what they have done. This supports our child to be less defensive towards us and more reflective
A is for ACCEPTANCE: We accept our child’s experience even if our interpretation of events is different. We offer them unconditional ACCEPTANCE of their thoughts, feelings and struggles and normalise their experience
C is for being CURIOUS: We ask the child what is going on for them and why to understand more deeply using CURIOUS questions such as “I wonder why you thought to say it this way or what’s going on for you just now”. This supports the development of our child’s self awareness, the reason behind what they do and why
E is for EMPATHY: When we offer our child EMPATHY, we are showing them compassion and are present with them and their experience without placing our own experience or agenda onto the child
