What is a Parent Coach?

What is a Parent Coach is a question I am often asked. It’s a very good and relevant question. The dictionary definition of coach is “A person who trains or directs athletes or athletic teams.  A person who gives instruction, as in singing or acting.  A private tutor employed to prepare a student for an examination.”

This definition is not very helpful. In essence, coaching is a conversation, or a series of conversations between two people.  It is a form of learning, where the coach supports the client to develop in a way that benefits the client.  The coach works with the client on his goals, aspirations or desires on ways to move forward in his life and achieve his ambitions.

A parent coach helps parents with any issues they have around parenting; it could be the parent finds herself/himself constantly shouting at the child, resulting in everyone being unhappy or maybe they are running out of patience because their child refuses to go to bed/have a bath/do their homework etc.

Seeing a Parent Coach means you know that what you are doing isn’t working and that there are other ways of dealing with the issues and you need that extra help. You want to ensure your child gets the best start in life. Needing a Parent Coach does not mean that you are a bad parent or that your child is out of control, far from it, you have your child’s interests at heart.

Some of the benefits are:

·         Having fun again

·         Learning alternative tools and techniques

·         Finding effective way of listening and being heard

·         Discover that being a parent is easy
