Parent Coaching Consultations
A Parent Coaching Consultation is required after every 4 sessions for parents with a child 12 and under. It is optional for parents with a child 13+
The relationship between a child and parent is an important vehicle for the process of change and transformation to occur. In the parent consultation, parents will have the opportunity to gain information regarding their child's abilities to express thoughts and feelings and discuss observations that have been made while in session. This information can help parents relate to their children and enhance and strengthen their relationship.
Goals of the parent consultation include helping parents gain a greater understanding and acceptance of the child's emotional world, the development of more realistic and tolerant perceptions and attitudes towards both self and child, the development of more effective parenting skills, and helping parents recapture the joy of parenting.
Parent consultations are offered via phone, face to face, or zoom. They are meetings between just counselor and parents.
