Parents Online Counselling

Parenting can be very overwhelming these days. Parents are more over-extended than ever, and thus have less time to seek help and support to sort things out. For busy parents, the idea of going to a counselling session to seek help is viewed as being far too time consuming. As a result, we think of online-counselling as the option to meet parent’s needs. It can be done at one’s convenience, from one’s smartphone, tablet, or other technological device. Online counselling is a simple, portable, streamlined way for parents to take care of challenges, “on the go.”


Life as a student and as a parent can be very challenging at times, full of ups and downs, and talking to someone can be very helpful in dealing with challenging situations, issues, or feelings. Talking therapy, such as counselling, is a helpful way to overcome any problems one may be facing, eventually getting oneself to a better place. Counselling can be perceived in different ways, but generally speaking, counselling is a process by which people seek help to change something in one’s life, or simply explore thoughts and feelings in more depth. Counselling should always be done in a safe and confidential environment, with a qualified counsellor, who has experience working with various issues and feelings. A counsellor is not there to tell you what to do, but rather to encourage you to talk about what you’re experiencing, in order to uncover any root causes, and to identify any unhelpful or unhealthy ways of coping. Counselling does not come in a 'one size fits all' format, but rather each session is tailored to the individual.


Counselling can help with all sorts of issues. It can also help with positive events, such as choosing a direction in one’s life or reaching one’s full potential. Perhaps you are feeling ‘stuck' and would value the viewpoint of a counsellor. Counselling can be of great value, when one is feeling overwhelmed in many areas of one’s life, and when one feels lost or things are becoming too difficult to manage. When experiencing large changes, insomnia, or if feeling lost or alone or isolated, counselling can assist in developing strategies to manage, and to develop better-coping skills.


If you have decided to try counselling, you might be feeling uncomfortable about your first session. Making the decision to get help and address the issues you are facing is an important first step. Knowing what to expect from a counselling session also helps you to feel less nervous. We can answer any questions you may have around counselling, and we are happy to help you take those first steps toward your counselling experience.
