FAMILIES

YOUR FAMILY MATTERS

Going through adolescence can be tough for young people with all the changes they are experiencing in their body, emotions and how they are discovering & relating to the world around them.

Looking after a child in adolescent is also tough too because we’ve learned to love these little people who are now growing into something new and wonderful….and there are times they don’t want us to be a part of this new life.  The love they have for us is still there, but they can be very good at hiding it!

And now that they aren’t so little, family life is evolving into something different too and this change can be challenging for all the family.

That’s why we’ve created our Families Programme of support.

 

JUST FOR YOU (Parents & Carers)

Our Coaching Approach for Parents & Carers course creates space for you to connect with other adults at a similar stage so you know you’re not alone.  It’s also an opportunity to enhance your communication skills and flexibility to navigate challenges through learning how to use a coaching approach to help yourself and your family. Stress less, connect more.

FOR ALL YOUR FAMILY (who are aged 8 plus)

 

Our Connected Families course is for all the family to come together, grown ups and kids aged 8 and above (we’re sorry if you have younger children but this is much needed time to nurture the bigger kids).  Together you’ll be playing games and activities that help you all think about yourself & your relationships with each other. You’ll be discovering your love languages, your personal and family values as well as learning how to you can support each other. Because team work DOES make the dream work!  

JUST FOR YOU (or your child) PERSONALLY 

Some people don’t like groups and prefer having the time and space with someone on a 1:1 basis. If this is you, or your child then you may want to consider life coaching.

RESILIENT FAMILIES

not         You may already be aware of the research around Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and how unresolved traumas in our childhood impacts our health and wellbeing significantly throughout our lives.

But the great thing is, the impact of traumatic experiences is lessened when the young person has at least 1 person who they trust and is there to support them.

Our families programme enhances self and other awareness and ability to navigate the challenges life brings 

Traumatic experiences are events that exceed the persons ability to cope in that moment.

As such these can be the created through our attachment needs not being met well as the obviously upsetting events.

Dan Siegel (psychiatrist and paediatrician) summarises what is needed to create and maintain a secure attachment through the 4S:

Seen – we need to feel seen beyond our behaviour

                     Safe – we need to feel emotionally, physically and sexually safe

                                                                  Soothed – when we are upset we need someone to help regulate us and help us feel ok

                                                                    Secure – for us to create and maintain a secure attachment the previous 3 S’s need to be experienced consistently
