What Is Parental Coaching ?

Adlerian parental coaching is goal oriented. Young children primarily respond to their parents, which are the most significant people in their lives. In coaching sessions we work on changing the behavior of the parent towards the child, and in response, the child will also act differently.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF PARENTAL COACHING?

The main purpose lies in providing tools in order to improve all the relationships in the family: I teach effective communication, how to set proper rules and boundaries in a respectful way, efficient cooperation, how to cope with inappropriate behavior of children, high emotions, anxiety and anger management, and how to raise the self-esteem of each member of the family (parents and children alike).

                                                                    

WHICH TOPICS ARE RELEVANT IN PARENTAL COACHING? 

Potty training, parental authority, rules and boundaries, day and sleep schedule, tantrums, effective communication, cooperation instead of power struggles, disagreements between partners, screen addiction, low self-esteem, social challenges, siblings’ fighting, battles about homework, fears and anxieties, cursing or inappropriate language, aggressive behavior and many more.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK? 

The first time we meet I try to learn as much as I can about your family in order to understand what’s working well, what are your strengths, and what is challenging. At the end of the meeting we talk about your expectations, and the goals we would like to achieve, through coaching. Some people just need a few sessions while others might need more.

WHERE AND HOW DO WE MEET? 

We can meet at my private practice (located in Tel-Aviv North), at your place, or online. One can attend alone or as a couple.

 

WHAT ABOUT COUPLES COUNSELING?

Additionally to acquiring new parental skills, I can also offer work and insight on relational skills and improve the two partners / parents relationship.
