Things our clients tell us before they get help

“I’ve Googled strategies, done a parenting course and tried everything, but nothing seems to work with this kid”

“We’ve talked about what he needs to do, and he understands, but just won’t do it when he needs to. It’s so frustrating and we are at out wit’s end. What we are doing works for the other kids, just not this one?”

“Things are getting out of control – whatever we try seems to make things worse. The ipad or Xbox are the only things that seem to calm them down. But then trying to get them off leads to more meltdowns and dramas”

“My partner and I are constantly disagreeing on how we should manage things. They think we just need to be firmer and more strict, but that’s not working. It’s causing conflict between us and really affecting our relationship”

If any of this sounds familiar, you’re not alone – we help hundreds of working families around Brisbane every year to get through these common, but overwhelming challenges. So don’t feel you have to go it alone and work it out from Googling, sessions with a psychologist that deals with these sorts of things every day can help you make progress!
