Parenting Course (Coaching) Parents


Parenting is one of society’s acceptances of the norm, we often forget that it is one of the most challenging and demanding jobs, mostly without pay, pension and defiantly not a lot of thanks; however it can be one of the most rewarding experiences of parent’s lives. To enable all family member to reach their full potential in a happy, relaxed and fun way in an ever evolving and busy world we need to take a fresh approach that is fast, effective and long lasting, hence the evolvement of FAMILY DYNAMICS.


Coaching parents on one to one bases prior to and after Family Dynamic builds trust, confidence and reduces anxiety about accessing Family Dynamic Programmes and promotes positive outcomes. As such this this unique approach to family support, prior to engaging in our programmes enables mums and dads to identify any past or present issues that may hinder their ability to take on new and effective knowledge and to use it effectively with immediate effect to nurture their children, their relationships and themselves, regardless of the problems they present with.


Some of the life challenges often presented may include illness, lack of parenting knowledge, Trauma, Stress related issues, Anxiety, Sleep deprivation or Depression for example.


There are three main areas of concern that may prevent or hinder positive outcomes/parenting:


Environment: Where the person lives or works in is toxic and prevents them from meeting their needs or the needs of their children


-Having endure an abusive or dysfunctional family

-Living in a threaten neighbourhood

-Working for a bully


The misuse of their innate resources: which include, our ability to learn new knowledge, the ability to build rapport empathise and connect with others, effective use of their imagination to focus attention away from emotions and problem solve and their ability to access their conscious rational mind that can check out their emotions, question, analyse and plan.


-Learnt helplessness, when someone is conditioned to have low expectation if themselves

-Misuse of their imagination by constantly worrying about past events, which precipitates depression and anxiety, instead of problem solving


Damage innate resources: can be a result of:

-Faulty transmission of genetic knowledge as in Autism or Asperger’s and other psychological diagnosis

-Poor diet: not getting the right nutrition to the brain

-Posing from drugs or alcohol abuse etc.

-Physical accident or psychological trauma (including PTSD)


This new and dynamic approach enables the support team/coach not only to identify personal or family issues that may hinder positive progress, but also to identify environmental factors which or all too often ignored or simply not taken in to account when expectations of change is paramount, hence all too often family return to old habits after accessing family or personal coaching.
