The Parenting Journey
At The Parenting Journey we are passionate about supporting you, as parents, wherever you are on your journey.
Evidence-based parenting programs (Tuning in to Kids and Tuning in to Teens) give you tools to help your child develop emotional resilience and
competence in managing their emotions in healthy ways. This helps them to move through difficult times without being swamped by their emotions or alternatively pushing them down. This helps them to be able to read people and situations and more easily communicate as they go through the challenges and changes of adolescence. Improved communication helps you to stay connected to them and enjoy the journey. Our small groups give parents the opportunity to connect with other parents in supportive, non judgmental settings.
We all parent in different ways, but what we have in common is wanting the very best for our children and facing the challenges of parenting during a very different time to when we were growing up.
‘With my changes (controlling my anger, sharing his feelings, listening with empathy), my son has changed a lot. He’s very calm, very understanding, and very helpful. I feel the relationship with my son has become stronger and he trusts me more.’
Tuning in to Teens TM
We are taking bookings for our next program- Tuning in to Teens: Emotionally Intelligent ParentingTM program. This is based on Tuning in to Kids but with a focus on the teenage years. It is suitable for parents of children in Grade 6 to approximately 16 years of age. These small group programs take place live online and have one or 2 facilitators depending on the group size.
Wednesdays : 14th July -18th August
Thursdays : 12th August -23rd September
Tuning in to TeensTM personalised sessions
Individual sessions for individuals or couples are available by appointment. These are offered online via Zoom and cover the same content as Tuning in to Teens programs but can be tailored to your particular needs, offering more opportunity for you to talk through challenges and build on your strengths in a confidential, supportive space.

and no actual children”

Sometimes it is hard to see the wood for the trees in parenting and so easy to get stuck in a rut. At The Parenting Journey, we are all about supporting you to tune in to your child, try new things out in a supportive environment and develop new skills to help you and your child. We are experienced facilitators of the Tuning in to KidsTM and Tuning in to TeensTM programs and counsellors working with youth and adults. As importantly we are both parents of teenagers and bring warmth and authenticity to our programs.
