Sara is keen to work with your family’s strengths, values and priorities.
All families are living systems, which naturally change over time as they go through the family life cycle.
Sometimes families need some extra help with the very real ‘everyday challenges’ and stresses of parenting. At these times families can benefit from ‘Parent Coaching’ to get back on track, learn new strategies and skills so your family can become stronger and more resilient.
Some families may be experiencing more significant struggles, Sara is trained in a range of therapies and can select the best approach to fit your family. Sara offers therapeutic counselling to parents or whole families and is particularly keen to involve Dad’s in the counselling process.
