Family coaching is for parents who want to be more effective in raising their children together. You choose a shared parenting style which will match your family values.
Family coaching can also provide a safe and confidential space when communication between parents and children is at an all-time low. It creates an environment where each voice is heard to forge a better-connected family life together.
Family sessions with children over the age of 14 years.
Each family has its own dynamics.
We can only parent from our experience (how we were parented) and from the knowledge we gain along the way. Our partner will do the same. Which means unless we discuss and plan together we may have very different parenting styles which can lead to confusion for our children.
Parenting coaching is a positive intervention to reverse the downward spiral of stress. By acquiring practical tools and understanding of the normal developmental phases of children parents learn how to take positive, practical action steps to achieve their family’s goals and desires.
Parenting is something we do not receive training to qualify! Rather we learn on the job!

Divorce brings each person to a crossroads in their life – it is recognised as one of the most stressful life-changing experiences along with the death of a spouse and retrenchment.
Even if you are the person choosing to divorce your partner the decisions about winding-up the shared estate; where the children will live and who will take what items from the home and will one party keep the family home or must it be sold are just some of the emotionally charged resolutions to be reached.
Having your own coach to support you through the divorce process provides you with `a safe confidential space:
- To express your emotions;
- Explore possibilities;
- Finding clarity for important decisions you have to make;
- Learn skills for caring for yourself;
- Develop your resilience;
- Preparing for life beyond the divorce.

So how do we fulfil our needs and our own as a couple?
Coaching provides a safe and confidential space to take some time out, and focus on yourself, your needs and all the conflicting demands that we juggle. Coaching enables you to stop the rush and sort out the wood from the trees in your life. It is practical; it is relational; it is solution-orientated; it is calming, reflective and creates responsibility and accountability for you in your life.
We know that whoever sits with the problem also sits with the solution (Nancy Kline – Time to Think), but we often do not stop to take that time. Coaching provides a supportive environment in which you will be encouraged to do your own best independent thinking and find your unique solutions to your challenges.
