Parenting is 24/7 and while it can be filled with reward and joy it can also be relentless, frustrating, confusing and worrying.
Often in families we bring our patterns from our extended family into our immediate family and play out our old unhealed relationships with our children (and spouse). This can feel old but familiar and leave you feeling confused. You may feel stuck and unsure of what is happening in your relationship with your children, especially in the teenage years.
Sarah understands the trials and tribulations of parenting, (having four of her own) and will support you without judgement with your parenting concerns. Sometimes just having someone to talk to and knowing you are not alone makes all the difference.
Sarah can assist you with:
Setting healthy boundaries, an essential in all relationships (especially with children/teenagers) that helps to ease confusion and provide understanding of what is ok and not ok.
Staying consistent with rules
Communicating effectively and openly
Understanding old family patterns
Remaining calm, patient and knowing your triggers
How to listen and be heard
Parenting is a lifelong relationship, with a person/people that we love deeply and whom grow physically, psychologically and mentally right before our eyes. We know our children as babies, toddlers, children, teenagers and young adults and with each stage change occurs not only within our children as they grow but within our relationships with them. This can happen at a rate that takes time to adjust and catch up to, often talking and seeking support can help with this adjustment.
