Support for Parents

Support for Parents

Do you just wish you had all the answers?

Adjusting to life as a parent can be a struggle. Just as no one’s experience is the same, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to parenting. Everyone faces different challenges. Our practitioners can help you identify, cope with and overcome parenting challenges, so that you can build the best possible relationship with your child and partner.

We can't promise all the answers, but we can help you carve a pathway to happy parenting.

Whether your baby is days old or a young adult, our trained psychologists work with you individually,or as a family, to understand what works best when managing your family.

We can work with you in one-to-one sessions or in a group setting with other parents. Some people may prefer the group setting, as it's a way of realising you're not alone. Everyone has a child who won't sleep, or a teenager who seems to have changed overnight. Everyone argues at times with their loved ones and everyone can relate to feeling like you have no more me-time.

At VCPS we provide support to mothers, fathers and their children. Our work aims to assist parents be more effective in tuning into their own emotions and needs, the needs of their partner, and to understand what their child requires at different stages of development. Our staff also assist parents to support each other more effectively, create positive connections between themselves and with their child/children. This creates room for bonding, observation and reflection. Often this type of work will help parents be “good enough” rather than “perfect”.

Let us help you provide some structure to the happy chaos that we call family.

Most of our services attract a Medicare rebate, please enquire when you make an appointment.
