123 MAGIC & EMOTION COACHING
This course of six hours looks at emotional regulation in children. It provides parents with a very sound framework to understand their child’s behaviour with a particular emphasis on their ability to self regulate and cope with things not going their way. A very important component of this course is the ‘emotion coaching’ role parents can play to help strengthen relationships and make children feel valued and understood.
A tailored course can be offered to parents who would like additional strategies to use with their child.
The teen years are a tricky time for parents as they are unsure how much at at what stage it is appropriate to ‘let go’ a bit (or a lot).
The program provides a list of things that tend to erode relationships, along with a template for how to hold an important discussion with your teen about something that is concerning you, or worse, putting them in danger.
The course is suited to delivery to a group, or can be offered as an individual parent workshop when things are not going well at home.
You may wish to have concerns that you wish to discuss in a ‘one to one’ setting. Appointments are available to parents and young people. The fee of a one hour counselling or coaching session is $100.
