Parent Support Coaching

Providing strategies and guidance to manage any parenting struggle and create a positive environment for your family

Raising children can be one of the most challenging and rewarding aspects of life. But it’s far from easy to know how to respond when your child is struggling with something, acting out or pulling away from you.

Parent support coaching can help

Parent support coaching offers a safe space for you to share any of the difficulties you're encountering.

It just isn't possible to be prepared for every event, challenge or conflict you're going to have with your child, so please don't punish yourself if you're finding it hard.

 

Our parent coaching offers practical tools and strategies for understanding and managing difficult behaviour, helping you create a positive environment in which your children can thrive.

A coach can offer guidance on setting limits, developing better communication skills, building resilience and improving emotional awareness in children of all ages - from toddlers to teens to adult children. With the right support, you'll learn how to be the best parent possible while preparing your child for a successful future.

Seeking support from a Parent Coach shows a real commitment to improving your family life

Coaching enables parents to gain an expert's insight into what may be going on at home, and acting out unconsciously, while equipping you with the practical tools to make positive change

A parent support coach can be an invaluable resource for parents who are struggling with any aspect of raising a child. If you're finding you parenting duties hard, please know that you are not alone. Many parents find it incredibly difficult to navigate the challenges of parenting, especially when life keeps changing outside of the family home. Take the pandemic, for example. It just wasn't possible for parents to have known the lockdowns were coming, or how to support a family with a range of different needs. While we can't predict the future, our coach can teach you a range of skills, tools and techniques that will work in a wide range of situations to help your family communicate openly and support one another.

If you're going through changes in your family life, due to an adjustment of working patterns, a separation, divorce, the introduction of a new partner, or the birth or adoption of a new child or pet, we can help.

Life changes can have a significant impact on family life, and children often show their discomfort through acting out, withdrawing, or 'masking' their difficulties. If you're worried about how your child is handling a life transition, speak to us, and we'll be pleased to help.

A parent support coach can prove invaluable in navigating a new diagnosis for your child.

With identification and diagnosis rates vastly improving for difficulties such as Depression, Anxiety, OCD, ADHD, ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Behaviour and Processing Disorders in children, a coach can significantly help each parent to adjust their tools and strategies to the needs of their child.

Some diagnoses will mean that 'traditional' parenting tools may cause more harm than good, so we'll guide you through any adaptations to your parenting that can transform your family life.

Through our extensive work with children, families and schools across South-West London, we know how frightening it can be if your child is self-harming, showing signs of disordered eating, hair-pulling or having suicidal thoughts. 

Your parent coach can work alongside your child's therapist to ensure the whole family is getting the support it needs. We'll teach you how to respond compassionately to events that may feel alarming, and how to navigate the tricky months that lie ahead on your child's recovery.

 

A parenting coach can provide insight into healthy ways of setting boundaries, disciplining children or fostering better relationships within the family. They can also provide vital support and guidance to help parents create a safe, secure and nurturing home.

 

A parent support coach can be a valuable asset for anyone who'd like support developing their parenting skills and creating healthier, more meaningful relationships with their children

Parent support coaching is not just beneficial for your children, although they're often the focus of our work. Through overcoming some of your struggles, your confidence will grow - both in parenting and in broader aspects of your day-to-day life. A coach will often help you to see areas where you're holding yourself back, self-sabotaging, or repeating unhealthy patterns from your own childhood. At Vitus Wellbeing, we truly care about the whole family, so we'll do all we can to ensure every family member receives the support they need.

We'll help you to feel more relaxed and in-control as a parent.
