1 to 1 Support

"My husband and I worked with Suzanne to try and make the changes needed to improve our relationship with our daughter. Suzanne listened carefully and enabled us to think about how our responses needed to change to enable home life to change. She opened conversations and made us think carefully about how the way we were parented affected the way we parent. She helped us to understand our daughters feelings and how to respond to those. Suzanne is kind, patient and understanding, she never cast judgement and was easy to talk to. I would recommend Suzanne to any family in need of additional support".
Sharing parenting Raising Teens

Would you like to talk to someone confidentially about an issue you are having with the children at home?

Are you too busy to attend one of our Courses, Workshops or Tasters but still want advice and support?

Do you want to build confidence before attending one of our Courses, Workshops or Tasters?

The Sharing Parenting One-to-One Support programme has been developed for parents and families and shared in one-to-one situations.

It is designed to aid in addressing more immediate and specific issues and supporting the family to find strategies and develop skills outside a group setting.

We hope after the 1 to 1 support sessions you will then feel able to join a group in order to build a support network and connect with other parents and carers, but this is not essential.

Support can be flexible and dependent on your individual needs and covers: 

  • Communication and parenting styles
  • Assertive communication
  • Identifying needs
  • Understanding challenging behaviour
  • Managing challenging behaviour
  • Listening
  • Discipline strategies
  • Choices and consequences
  • Labelling
  • Encouragement
  • Building self-esteem
