Relate 4 Parents

Building stronger relationships with your children


The journey from childhood to adulthood is a long and challenging one and can often impact upon the parents’ relationship. Many parents tell us they would appreciate some additional support so if you are feeling you need some help you are not alone.

We have developed a  service  that offers  you specialist support, advice and information designed to enhance your parenting skills, extend your knowledge of  your child’s development and behaviour and gain insight into some of the issues they may be struggling with.

Who is it for?

The service is open to you whether you are living together with your children, a single parent, step-parents, separating or separated parents -  the only criteria is that you are able to focus on the needs of your child and collaborate to improve  your relationship with them. 

What is Relate 4 Parents?

This service is delivered in, up to, 3 weekly sessions by our team of specialist young person’s counsellors.

When you make an appointment one of our specialist team will meet with you and discuss your specific areas of concern before agreeing with you what kind of help and resources would best help you. The kind of topics that might be included in your sessions are: 

  • Parenting styles

Your counsellor will also make suggestiuons for reading materials and other useful resources.
