Counselling for Parenting Support in Guelph

It is a wonderful privilege to be a parent. Many people look forward to becoming one at some point. But the truth is, parenting is not that easy, and it requires one to deliberately develop some essential skills.


What Is Parent Counselling?

Parent counselling is a service that is given to mothers and fathers with the aim to provide guidance, knowledge and emotional support for whatever they are going through without any bias or judgment. Its difference from family counselling is that it focuses on parenting and how it impacts family dynamics.


Here’s how we can help.

Kids tend to exhibit certain challenging behaviours during each developmental stage. It may be difficult to deal with these behaviours and it can be especially challenging for first time parents who may have little experience tuning into a child’s emotions. There is plenty information available online that can be useful for developing parental skills. However, when it comes to parenting, the best way to learn to tune-in is by connecting with a counselor that tunes into your emotional experience. Through a supportive and non-judgemental environment, you can develop parenting techniques that will foster a sense of connection and help you repair after having difficult interactions with your children. Even veteran parents can benefit from the occasional check-in with a counselor. The following are some of the areas that are covered in parenting sessions:


  • Instilling good discipline that focuses on teaching children rather than punishing them.
  • Developing effective communication strategies with children.
  • Setting up family meetings and addressing household issues.
  • Handling sibling rivalry effectively.
  • Appropriate methods of implementing consequences.

The goal of a professional counselor is to connect with your thoughts and emotions around the parenting challenges you have been experiencing. A counselor can support you to foster a compassionate and nurturing environment for your children. Help is not that far away. All you need to do is to reach out.

If you or a loved one is having trouble with parenting, get in touch with us right away to know how we can help.
