Family Relationship Coach and Mentoring

Parenting is tough, especially in the environment of new world understanding of human development and neuropsychology.

Particularly for those who are overcoming their own emotional limitations from being raised in traditional parenting command and control homes.

You may have done the research, read the books, and even tried applying the theories, and still seeking sustainable success.  It’s then that you need a mentor.

 

What is Family Coaching?

Family coaching is a process where one or more members of a family partners with a coach to address goals that will ultimately improve their family dynamics. A parent coach is someone who helps parents with parenting challenges by offering alternative perspectives around family situations, uncovering strategies to shift behaviour and family dynamics and helping parents achieve their parenting goals.

Parenting coaches and mentors are emerging as a new way for parents to gain support for a variety of parenting issues. Coaching to enhance skills and mentoring as a trusted advisor to support building new family culture and break the tribal cycle of the way you were brought up, IF that’s amongst the challenges you are working to overcome.

Essentially we’re here to serve as an alternative to your parents, who with best intentions may not have the models, methods or strategies that you wish to take forward.

What People are Saying

Leanne, The philosophy in the advice that you provide to parents, and to me has changed the way I parent and model to other parents when I work with children in early intervention.  It has also positively influenced the I am supervising another professional as she is journeying through to get her license in counselling.  I talk about your teachings during supervision as it relates to clients and communicating with both parent and child in a positive way.  I am just so thankful that I joined your parenting group and have been positively changed.  Thank you so much.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Family Coaching?

Family coaching is about supporting a family to become even better.

As in any type of coaching arrangement, it isn’t about what is wrong.  Though there might be opportunities to do even better.

If there are things that aren’t going the way that you want, it can be valueable to get some outside feedback from someone who is less invested in what’s happening.  Someone who isn’t taking sides.

We are our own limitation.  Same as when editing, we are our own worst editors.  We see what we expect to see, so miss the simple opportunities, that are just out of our persepctive.

 

How Do I Know if Family Coaching Is Right for Me?

This is only something you can decide.  

What do you want for your family?  

Are you succeeding in reaching that desire?

If you’ve read the books and tried the strategies and principles and things still aren’t working, then perhaps family coaching is the next step to get you on the track you want to be.

Do You Only Work With Families Experiencing Problems?

Like any coaching arrangement, it’s determining what is the goal that you want to achieve, and is coaching the best way to enable achieving that goal?

Though many families do come because they are experiencing a specific issue, this is often only a reflection of where the focus is, right now.

I work with families in finding the underlying cause that is driving the issue, and then we work together to create a sustainable solutuion.

I love working with families and watching them flourish as they resolve the cause of issues.  Looking forward to supporting you to achieve your ideal future.

Do You Offer Ongoing Support Services?

The short answer is yes.  Though my personal philosophy is that as you get the foundations you need, and build confidence in your skills, the level of support required reduces.

The medium term mission is to develop a membership, with ongoing support and access to a variety of resources, tips, coaching and mentoring that will give you certainty that when one of those “out of the box” issues comes up, that you will feel fully supported.

Do You Only Coach Families?

While families are the focus, my mission is enabling the next generation of children to be raised to be emotionally intelligent and resilient adults ready for the needs to being competitive in the 21st century.  

In order to support the mission, working with couples on their relationship, so that they are operating in a team is ONE of the options available.

It’s so much easier to resolve the typical parenting issues by educating, enabling and empowering a couple to have a great relationship and excellent communication skills before kids arrive.  When both parents have already resolved the issues that often drive poor reaction and insecurity, then their children have a strong foundation already set for success.
