What is Counselling for Parents?

It is no secret that parenting can be extremely challenging. As our children transition through different phases of their lives, often we feel anxious and unsure about the best way to support them.

At Bournemouth Hypnotherapy and Counselling, we provide more than just a shoulder to lean on. Our counselling for parents sessions offer a confidential outlet for you to explain your parental problems and take positive steps to overcome them.

We may also look at your childhood, drawing parallels between what you felt worked for you and what we could alter. Each parental situation is different and we will work together with you to help find positive solutions for your individual problems.

As a parent, it is easy to lose sight of your own wellbeing. With all of your efforts working towards your child’s welfare, we often find ourselves in a dark place. To ensure that we give our children the best upbringing possible, we must remember to look after ourselves!

During our counselling for parents sessions, we aim to improve your own mental health. This often creates a domino effect, ensuring that your mental wellbeing has a positive effect on your ability to parent constructively.

In general, life presents many challenges along the way. One of the most important factors in the way we cope with these challenges is self-esteem. Having a good amount of self-esteem is integral to navigating through difficult parts of life.

It is well known that children pick up traits from their parents as they grow older. Showing your children that you have a good amount of self-esteem will help them to achieve and overcome problematic times in their lives. With help from Bournemouth Hypnotherapy and Counselling, we will aim to boost your self-esteem and set a wonderful example to your children.

Many aspects of the modern world can have a detrimental effect on a parent’s relationship with their children. For example, social media has the ability to affect a child’s view of the world and can skew their views in a certain way. Consequently, this has the potential to affect family relationships and may be detrimental to a strong family unit in the future.

Our counselling for parent’s sessions look into what could be affecting your relationship with your child. Also, we take a glance at the adjustments we could make to improve your overall family unit’s strength.

Distance and disconnection between family members can sadly be a common occurrence. Often, this is a result of parents and children finding it hard to open up to one and other.

This dynamic may ensure that more problems arise in the future, potentially driving your parent-child relationships further apart.
