Deeply passionate about parenting and fatherhood, my parent mentoring programs provide parents with quality support in their own parenting journeys. My hope is to build on existing parenting skills and a healthy family culture.
On my own parenting journey I have from time-to-time needed extra support. It’s because I have really wanted to be the best dad I can be, knowing the important role parents play in our children’s whole of life journey: emotional wellness, mental health, resilience, relationship trust and coping behaviours.
My parental mentoring service offers a safe space for parents to master new skills and reshape old patterns that they are feeling impacts their children negatively. Parent mentoring relies on key strategies from contemporary evidence based parenting programs like Tuning into Kids/Teens, Circle of Security, Parenting with Connection and STEP programs.
Sometimes, Parent Mentoring can include an opportunity for children/adolescents to attend a session and offer parents feedback around their family circumstances. This is called a Child Consult and research has shown that can often provide an incredibly positive experiences for children and parents alike.
Generally, Parent Mentoring services are held over several sessions. Sessions are often weaved within existing individual and couples sessions as parents will often want to work on their own personal or relationship growth concurrently to their parenting issues.
NB: There are a number of important processes and procedure guiding the Parent Mentoring program that will always be forefront in protecting the right and wellbeing of children. In particular, Child Consultations will only only occur after suitability is assessed and an agreement made with both parents.
