Parenting Skills

Parenting Can Be A Tough and Thankless Job

The job of parenting does not automatically come as they say in a ‘parenting manual’ that is uniquely designed and developed for the parenting life of your child. Some people say ‘parenting’ is the hardest job a person will ever do, especially when parents feel like they don’t know what they are doing, but when able to connect with their children, it can be the most rewarding experience in the world.

However, many parents find themselves in a position where they just don’t know what to do next and request better ‘Parenting Skills’ to manage and support their children.  I tell most parents that come into Michelle Barratt Psychology, never to feel alone, never to feel there is something wrong with them, that they will  not be judged or need to feel ashamed; all parents we believe are doing their best, and there is nothing wrong with asking “Why?”  or “What else can I do?” or “How Can I do this better or differently?”.  Fundamentally, never feel you are alone in asking these questions,, they are many parents who at least once in their lifetime seek support, and requesting support in a healthy way is only role-playing to your children the healthy way to seek support and improve one’s skills.

At Michelle Barratt Psychology we can provide the support and direction you need to build and develop more effective parenting strategies.  Please never feel embarrassed or alone in your journey, so if you feel you need to learn new ‘Parenting Skills’ don’t hesitate to contact us and make an appointment. We are here to support you no matter what the issue is.

Our Counselling Techniques

Building Parenting Skills and parenting counselling provides parents a safe and a completely non-judgmental and empathic forum for you to discuss the issues you are experiencing in your family. It allows parents and families to explore their existing parenting techniques against new skills that parents learn as they move through the cousnelling sessions. The sessions process, is without a doubt, a collaborative and respectful process, that endeavours to understand each issue separately. Each issue can be discussed transparently and openly so that understanding how your parenting styles have impacted on your children can be fully understood. This is a crucial part of the process so that learning new skills can be implemented with more clarity, purpose and meaning – you hopefully won’t feel like you are fumbling in the dark anymore.
