Amazing Parenting the Journey

Amazing Parenting empowers parents to positively impact their children for the good of their families and our society.


I, like many people saw the 2011 riots on the news in London and in various places around the country.  I considered the condition of the youth and their families in this country and what a dire position many of them are in.  What with drugs and alcohol, domestic violence and family break down.

 

As we know one of the major pillars in a country is its families and once the family structure begins to decay the social frame of society begins to fragment.

Many families in the UK are under attack with absent fathers and out of control teens.

 

I would like to propose a solution for the dysfunctional family’s who are not yet known to social service but recognise they are on the brink of family chaos and desire help before its too late. This would be preventative intervention work. I would like to work with engaging families that have been identified as families with teenagers in need of support and intervention from an outside objective source. I would work with these families and help them see and implement a better way of living with each other.

 

I have worked with teens periodically since 1995 and am currently working in an organisation where the young people and their families are very much known to the police and social services. The age old saying ‘prevention is better than cure’, has to prevail with these families and them to accept that.

 

I have an advanced diploma in Clinical and Pastoral counselling. It is held with the institute of counselling in Glasgow, Scotland. The method used was Person Centred and was the Gerard Egan theory. I finished and received my certificates in 2002.

 

I have also devised and constructed many of my own programmes / sessions to help strengthen and build families and young people. Here are just five of them. They have all proved to be successful in supporting families through difficult times.


Here are just five of them:
