“We had been experiencing behavioural difficulties with our daughter over two years and Sheila was recommended . We found the 1-to-1 worked really well for us. Sheila was great at listening, asking questions, suggesting reasons for the behaviour & recommending responses. Over a number of sessions, the parent/child relationship changed for the better. Through Sheila’s guidance, our daughter is now a very contented girl, whose behaviour has changed beyond recognition. This has positively affected the well-being of all the family. Thanks to Sheila, peace & normality has been restored and our relationship with our child is now a very happy one” David & Dee
Why might someone need 1-to-1 Parent Support?
Parents seek 1-to-1 support for a variety of reasons, mostly to get support around their parenting skills. This service is tailor made to address your particular concerns in a private and confidential environment either at my office (South Co Dublin) or by phone /skype at a prearranged time. Daytime / evening or weekend appointments are possible to facilitate one or both parents.
Do you cater for specific age groups?
Parenting toddlers / Teenagers
Yes. 1-to-1 Parenting Support assists and supports you in your parenting issues and the challenges you face. In a session, I focus on responding to whatever issue(s) you choose to address whether this relates to your toddler, child or teenager. In my experience, parents often meet with different issues at different stages. Whether this is a toddler tantrum or a challenging teenager the core principles of this programme remain the same. When we recognise the feelings that underpin challenging behaviour and communicate more effectively we improve our interaction and everything changes for the better.
What does a Parent Coach do?
Parent Coaching supports and encourages parents with an understanding of what their child/teen may be feeling. Together with the parent we look at a different interaction which achieves a different result. Feedback is that suggestions are practical offering tips and skills that really make a difference in our parenting. Getting to the feelings that underlie the behavior is critical and when we know how the child feels, we respond in a way that works better. We find better ways of dealing with behaviour and this helps to create a calmer and happier home.
Sessions are usually for one hour’s duration and times/days can be arranged to suit you.
