What did you get from the service(s)provided?

  • Great to know I’m not alone

  • Really useful to discuss and hear other parents’ experiences

  • Group discussion helped with feelings of ‘everyone gets it right’ – they don’t!

  • Group sharing and listening is helpful. It helps me to think about my relationship with myself which in turn will help everyone

  • Insight into different ways of parenting

  • Understanding of oneself and children

  • How to deal with situations

  • That talking is important to every relationship

  • More ways of concentrating on ourselves to then help our children

  • A lot of the discussion proves that we do have the tools and helps you be more confident to use them when needed.

  • More confidence in decision making

  • Insight into myself as a parent and how self-awareness could benefit my relationship with my children

  • Greater awareness of how I parent, ideas for how things are likely to change as my children get older

  • I mainly started to look more at my own behaviour, needs, and how I was feeling, which changed my approach to the way I think. Rather than just trouble shooting on a day to day basis.

how has it helped you in daily life as a parent?

  • Help with setting boundaries and coping

  • Strategies to deal with anger, mine and my sons, and to diffuse the situation rather than rise to it

  • The approaches are very useful and the focus on your own awareness. I feel more validated to focus on myself rather than thinking this is selfish

  • When I heard the workshop was focusing on boundaries, I thought this would relate more to practical boundaries for our kids e.g. phones etc. but actually the focus of the workshop helped with this in a different way which I feel very happy with

  • Very useful in realising the work I need to do on my own self-respect and ability to be more truthful of my own reactions/feelings

  • Hugely helpful, practical phrases e.g. I feel… to try and use now with teenager, permission for me to spend time concentrating on where I am/feel (which in turn will benefit the family)

  • The main outcome of today for me was the idea of checking in with myself and staying grounded with my own emotions

  • More self-awareness of how I interact with my children
