Parenting – Counselling
Each woman is unique, each circumstance is unique. I practice evidence-based holistic counselling that focuses on the whole person. I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all’ philosophy. I believe each person is worthy of dignity and respect.
I am a mum of two and have experienced the terrible two’s and the troubling teens and realise that parenting is not an easy task, it is a labour of love, to nurture and grow our children into mature, responsible and loving adults.
Sometimes we don’t get it right and as a professional counsellor, I will give you strategies and techniques to help you through the challenges of parenting and other family concerns to help you achieve confidence and peace and create meaningful change.
I have a Graduate Diploma in Systemic (Family) Counselling, am a member of the Australian Association of Family Therapy, a member of the Australian & New Zealand Mental Health Association, and certified online therapist with Australian Online Therapy Training.
As a Counsellor for over 20 years, I have worked in community-based organisations, women’s refuges and in the mental health sector. I am a certified Parenting Coach and have delivered a range of workshops for parents in child behaviour, facilitated groups for parents with an ADHD child and an Aspergers child, and have led therapeutic groups.
I have helped hundreds of women with my therapy and coaching sessions, and I can help you through the challenges of parenting.
During sessions, women may talk of family concerns that prevents them from moving forward in parenting their own child, or discuss their grief with unresolved relationships with their own mum or dad. I will help you navigate these difficult family relationships so you can find meaning through these challenges and get your life back on track to lead a fulfilling life.
I offer in-person counselling at North Ryde NSW. Online counselling is available throughout Australia including rural and remote areas as well as worldwide. Phone counselling is available throughout Australia.
I also offer the nourishing Cuppa & Cafe Counselling, face to face appointments which can be held in a park or a cafe. Women have found these sessions to have less distractions than at home or in an office. These sessions are in a less formal space, and women often find they are more relaxed and can talk more freely. Talk with Janice if this is something you would like.
Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be; embrace who you are
