Adult Therapy &
Support for Parents
We understand life can be difficult, you may have faced adverse childhood experiences (ACE's) which are continuing to affect you now, you may be experiencing bereavement, loss or trauma or you may just be finding life to be a struggle for any reason, we are here to help you express and explore things in a way that's right for you so you may begin to feel more confident and fulfilled.
Parenting can be challenging and sometimes you may benefit from support,
perhaps you didn't experience good enough parenting growing up, maybe you have attachment issues that are affecting your relationships with your partner and/or child. It is common to feel a little lost when it comes to discipline and healthy boundaries with children, sometimes parents disagree on parenting styles which can lead us to struggle to cope or feel confident.
Many of our therapists are parents too so we understand the challenges of relationships and parenting.
Support for you
We are here to support you through whatever you are struggling with, in the way that works best for you, whether it be someone to listen and support you or to work with you creatively to explore and process your experiences, thoughts and feelings on a deeper level
You can feel safe in the knowledge we will accept you without judgement.
Support for you in your home with your child.
Parenting doesn't always come naturally, being playful can feel uncomfortable for some especially, if you have little experience of children or had parents that for whatever reason, were unable to be playful with you as a child. We are able to do home visits to help you connect with your child, to show you how to be playful and feel comfortable doing so. We can also help you set healthy boundaries for yourself and your child.
In our experience, once you get over the initial discomfort of being playful, you will find you begin to enjoy and begin to look forward to time with your child more. Another benefit of an improved connection between parent and child increases self-esteem for both of you and communication often improves. Setting healthy boundaries means a child is less likely to act out in negative ways because they know what is expected of them.
Our therapists provide creative materials,
sand, clay and art materials to enable self-exploration and creative expression experiences and to work through issues to minimise the focus on finding words for sensitive thoughts, feelings and experiences.
