Rescue Package (3 Consults)
Parenting is our most important job, but many of us find it much more difficult than we expected. In a culture which assumes that consequences or time-outs are the answer to every problem, it is difficult to find our way when things aren’t working for our children. Rather than throwing consequences at symptoms, Pamela focuses on uncovering the roots of problem behaviour so that trouble can be understood, prevented, and attended to at its source. With a strong emphasis on restoring, building, and preserving the relationships between parents and children, Pamela walks the maze of parenting with her clients.
These appointments are for parent(s) and other care providers. It is best if your child is NOT made aware that you are seeking help to understand them. I do not work with children directly, but only through the child’s adult care-takers. It is best if your child is not made aware of the nature of your visit.
About the Rescue Package:
This package is for those parents who have already had an intro consultation, and who are experiencing parenting challenges. Whether these challenges consist of a tantrumming two-year-old, an aggressive four-year-old, a bossy pre-teen, or a teen who keeps running away, these three sessions will give you some good insight into where this behaviour is coming from, and will start you on the road to making things better. Three sessions provide a good start, as you will have the chance to go home and evaluate, try some things, and come back for perspective on what is working, what isn't, and why. The Neufeld approach is insight-based. That means that I do not provide a how-to program, but rather help you to see and understand the dynamics at work in your child, and support you in providing what they need to grow into maturity. This is a very individualized way of empowering you to be your child's best bet.
Dear Pamela, I just wanted to send you a quick note to say how consequential your help has been. My boy is now thriving: his anxiety is minimal and manageable, his relationship with his brother has transformed into a lovely friendship, and I have never felt so confident and calm in my parenting. To genuinely enjoy the time we spend together is priceless. Thank you.
