Lola Thorne: Family coaching
Every family has their strengths and every family has their challenges. Families go through huge transitions together, like new jobs, new schools, new brothers and sisters, new parents and periods of grief - all whilst balancing the hectic pace of everyday life. This can result in frustration, isolation and a breakdown in communication.
As an qualified Social Worker, nothing will shock me and I know that no matter how bad things feel, there is a way forward. I work in a holistic, whole family approach and my experience of working with children and families - from baby planning through to older teenagers and adult children - has given me a good understanding of child development and teen-specific needs.
I will give you a neutral and respectful space to address issues such as parenting challenges, anger management, parental separation, communication break down and the challenges of being a new parent, adoptive or step-parent. I am dedicated to listening and understanding your family, and together we can find tools and techniques that work for your family to work towards a more harmonious family life.
Family coaching is only available if at least one child is over 12 years old. For families with younger children I would recommend couples coaching, in which we can holistically focus on the family life.
