Achieve Balance Counselling

Parent/Caregiver Support

Does it sometimes feel like your family relationships are falling apart?

Such feelings can be caused by a variety of situations. Perhaps you are:

  • Managing personal stress while caring for children.
  • Balancing parenting responsibilities with personal life.
  • Addressing feelings of isolation or lack of support.
  • Dealing with uncertainty or guilt in parenting decisions.
  • Navigating the complexities of a child’s development or behavior.

Parent/caregiver support can help you…

  • Learn effective stress management techniques.
  • Develop strategies for work-life balance.
  • Gain confidence in parenting skills.
  • Understand child development and behavioral strategies.

You don't have to feel this way.

Your counsellor will help you work through this by helping you understand the connection between feelings, body sensations, and behaviors. This approach is crucial in helping parents and caregivers learn self-regulation and how to co-regulate their children. Alongside your counsellor you will begin to work on enhancing your parent-child relationship and building self-esteem and regulation skills in your children.
