At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what their child might need from them, or how to manage challenging behaviour as it arises. Imagine what it might feel like it you were able to make sense of what your child was really needing from you, in any given moment? The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research into how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
The Circle of Security Parenting Program will support you to:
- Understand your child’s needs
- Discuss feelings with your child
- Tune into you child’s shifting needs
- Monitor your own vulnerabilities
- Notice times when you find it difficult to meet your child’s needs
- Manage behavioural difficulties
This course is suitable for parents from the prenatal period up to 5 years.
The COS program involves 8 sessions; one 2 hour session per week. Cost is $25/session for individuals, with partners encouraged for an additional $5/session. Rebates are available for those with a relevant mental health care plan or private health insurance.Get In Touch
Relationships- Family Foundations
Preparing for a baby is one of the most special times in your life. Often we dream about it for years and when it does happen, the pregnancy and the arrival of the baby itself can become the main focus of the relationship between the soon-to-be parents. All of this is important of course, but what about the foundation of the romantic relationship that will also change from one thing to another, with the arrival of a new baby? Our Family Foundations Relationship Workshop has been specifically designed to look at what these changes are and how you can best prepare for these changes with less hiccups and more love. In this full day workshop we delve into conscious communication tools for greater understanding between romantic partners, look at how our roles change from lovers into parents (and how to bring the two together functionally) and lots of other helpful learning around supporting each other through this big transition.
*Suitable for all parents and expecting couples
We are thrilled to have Kaye Greenwood (Midwife and Lactation Consultant) joining us to facilitate this introductory workshop for pregnant women and their partners:
- Understanding the art of breastfeeding
Breastfeeding is the natural way to feed your baby and it provides immediate and long-term benefits for the whole family so getting it right from the start leads to less stress for mother and baby.
This session covers the basics, such as how breastfeeding works, getting started, how to get the latch right from that first feed, the first few days and weeks at home, what is normal sleep for a breastfeed baby, plus plenty of time to ask questions.
Session time: 2 hours (information and question time)
Session cost: $40 per session
We understand that there is so much to learn when one becomes a parent and it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the questions that arise.
We are currently working hard behind the scenes to bring you a range of sessions to assist you from planning through to parenthood.
