Parenting Advice

Jenny Jackson Counsellor offers parenting adviceOur gorgeous babies don’t come with personalised manuals so parenting can be tricky at times. We take our cars to mechanics and ourselves to doctors so it’s smart and efficient to get advice and support from a parenting expert. Whilst there are general principles and strategies for parenting, one size does not fit all and these need to be tweaked to fit your family. You can talk about your children in as much detail as you need and get reassurance and strategies to fit your family.  Parenting advice covers children aged 0-20 years. Usually 2-4 sessions will be sufficient.
Are you struggling with any of these?

  • Tantrums
  • Anger – yours or the children’s
  • Children not co-operating or not listening
  • Is everything a battle
  • Bed-time or sleep struggles
  • Fussy eating
  • Non-communicative or pushy teens
  • Anxious children or teens
  • Sibling struggles
  • Technology use
  • Social skills
  • Do you feel like you’re yelling all the time
  • Discipline not working
  • Not sure what to try next

Parents often say it’s a relief to be able to talk to someone who quickly understands them and their children. They appreciate the opportunity to get the ideas they need in a short amount of time from someone who knows what works.
This service differs from Family Therapy in that it only involves parents, not the children. It’s practical and strategic mentoring, not counselling which may involve greater depth and be longer term.
Jenny’s style is non-judgemental, confidential and practical with years of experience to draw from.
Sessions are available face-to-face in Mairangi Bay or by skype. Call or book now.
