Family Parenting Counselling and Therapy

As all parents likely know, children don’t come with instruction manuals. The task of effective parenting can be trying to your relationship with your child and your partner. Oftentimes parents describe feeling worn out, emotionally exhausted, asking questions like “what am I missing?” regarding a child’s behavior, or feeling like you and your partner aren’t working as a team anymore. Effective parenting, however, isn’t a mystery reserved only for the most well-read and innately-gifted people out there. If you find yourself dissatisfied with how you and your partner are managing parenting stress, or feel like you’re doing well but could use some encouragement and practical support, then counselling might be right for you. Through the counselling process you may be able to learn better ways to communicate with your partner to ensure that you remain functioning as a team through the many trials and tribulations that come with child-raising. You may even discover things about yourself that you may have never known before!

If you find yourself dissatisfied with how you and your partner are managing parenting stress, or feel like you’re doing well but could use some encouragement and practical support, then counselling provided by Catholic Family Services of Simcoe County might be right for you.
