Quite often as parents we forget that we too are developing and changing as a person in our own right. In therapy you have an opportunity to understand theses dynamics and the challenges they present. Therapy offers the possibility of creating secure stable and loving parent child relationships.
One of the most difficult phases of parenting is to watch our children reach adolescents and young adulthood. Frequently it is a time when long established parenting patterns and beliefs come into direct conflict with the emerging adult identity. Parent child relationships may change, but our children have deep-seated investments in ensuring that the bond remains in place throughout their lifetime.
