Parent Coaching

Anna’s PhD thesis focussed on the health and wellbeing of the parent/child relationship. Leading international studies paired with her own research has provided Anna with evidence-based knowledge to assist parents to form a secure foundation and utilise methods to work through family issues.  

Parenting can challenge and trigger our own earlier attachment related experiences, which in turn can cause unhelpful patterns of interactions within parent/child and parent/parent relationships. Parents often express their frustration at the ‘noise’ surrounding the variety of methods and approaches, which can cause them to feel confused and overwhelmed.

Research provides valuable information. It can be daunting for parents to decipher what is valuable and workable. Anna works with parents and considers the issues according to the family’s specific environment.  

Anna works with a range of issues including:

  • School refusal
  • Self-harm
  • Identity issues
  • Bullying
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Blended family issues
  • Teenage concerns
  • Sibling and step-sibling issues
  • Aggression
  • Healthy boundaries
