Being a parent or carer can be one of the hardest jobs in the world. Some children are harder to parent than others and parents and carers can often face very challenging life circumstances whilst trying to look after their own mental health. Sometimes life can feel overwhelming. To make matters worse friends and family might not always understand the problems or have any idea how to help.
At BOUNCE! we offer 1:1 counselling for parents and carers and workshops to help your child to have greater understanding and control of their emotions; behave in ways that help them to build friendships; have stronger and more positive relationships with their family members, peers and others; have more enthusiasm and be more receptive to learning.
Offering parents and carers understanding and support
At BOUNCE! we believe parents and carers need understanding and support. We offer 1 to 1 counselling and psychotherapy to support parents and carers. Providing a safe and confidential space to explore difficulties in a non-judgemental, compassionate and kind way. Our counsellors and psychotherapists are qualified and experienced practitioners trained to listen and respond, and help parents and carers explore the changes and challenges that naturally occur in parenthood. This process promotes personal growth, can help with the discovery of new options and support in coping when things that can’t be changed.
