Parent groups will be led by Julia who specializes in child behaviour and development, and who comes into the space as a parent and as a therapist.

Julia will share examples of how doing it wrong actually brings about paramount growth and relationship repair.

What to Expect

  • The content will be determined by who arrives in the group; the challenges will inform the discussions
  • The groups are a place for parents to bring questions, difficulties, stories of success and trip-ups
  • Through empathic reflection, Julia will share how children feel in different situations and support ways of shifting conversations
  • Learn to separate yourself from what your child is showing you because their behaviour is not about you, but it is their way of communicating how they feel
  • By learning to attune to the feelings behind the behaviour and seeing it as a gift to understand, you will see your child differently
  • Once you learn to reflect and validate emotions so your child feels heard and seen, they will stop showing you how they feel through their behaviours
  • Learn to breathe deep and use self-regulation, co-regulation and presence to model healthy expression to your child

Virtual Non-Judgemental Space

  • Confidentiality expectations will be reviewed at the beginning of each meeting while all cameras are off
  • You will add topics into the chat box allowing themes to be gathered for the discussion
