Counselling for SEN parents
The support that I provide is for YOU as a Mum or Dad. What do we do when the penny drops that life is going to be different for our child? How can we equip ourselves to weather the inevitable storms and love our child exactly as they are, rather than the child we imagined we would have?
There is often an endless round of appointments, tests, meetings with professionals, sleepless nights, uncertainty over the future, anxiety over how to help your child and the sheer feeling of exhaustion. Relationships in the family might be strained or you might be coping alone. It can all feel overwhelming.
As a parent carer myself, for my son who has complex medical needs, I understand how relentless, frustrating and at times painful it can be to look after a child who has special needs. Your circumstances will be very different from mine, but I believe my lived experience helps me to understand in a more meaningful way.
