Blaming? Resentful? Temper tantrums that rival those of your toddlers...? (BTW, I’m not talking about your children here...!) Are you flabbergasted at the level of disrespect, disconnection and disharmony in your home? Yep, I'm all too familiar with this... When your buttons have been pushed by your offspring, you flip into unhelpful, old patterns - most likely those of your parents'! No one will ever deny that you are absolutely besotted with your children (especially when they’re asleep!), but we all have our limits of what we can take.
I will never declare to be the perfect parent – I don’t actually think such a phenomenon exists. I will never claim to be an expert or a guru. I’m just like any other parent who is doing the best they can with the resources and mental strength I have available.
As a therapist, this means that I’m not going to tell you how you should be parenting, but instead I can help you to access qualities and resources to help you to be the best parent you possibly can - minus the guilt and perfectionism. You know your children best and once you have access to your own intuition, you can make the best decisions for you and your family.
