Parenting

Our counsellors will design therapeutic sessions for you that will help you explore your relationship with your child, and teach you positive parenting techniques. 

Parenting is the act of raising a child. All parents through the course of parenting adopt a parenting style, which they feel is the best way to bring up their child. The four main parenting styles include authoritative parenting, authoritarian parenting, indulgent parenting and neglectful parenting. Most parents use a combination of these styles with their children.

How we can help?

Raising a child can be difficult and time consuming. Especially for new parents, it can be a time of distress and confusion. Our counsellors will help you identify your parenting styles through which you can work on your parenting skills. Through this counselling process, you will learn effective parenting strategies that will help you deal with your child in a number of situations. The counselling session will help you explore your relationship with your child and embrace positive parenting techniques. We also work with single parents to offer them sound parenting advice.

Parenting isn’t a practice. It Is a daily learning experience.
