How Can Coaching Help?
A coach is like a blend between a supportive friend and a trusted adviser. We partner with you to increase self-awareness, offer clarity, help you identify your goals, provide accountability, and encourage you toward the change you desire.
Pain coaching can help your child to increase their function and participation in life, shift their perceptions and expectations, and learn strategies to manage their pain well so that it has less of an impact on their life. I was a teacher and school counsellor for many years and have a knack for connecting with and supporting kids.
Parenting coaching can help you to feel supported, get unstuck, and finally start making progress on this difficult journey. Friends don't "get it", extended family doesn't "get it" and sometimes even the health professionals we are working with don't actually understand how hard this is. No doubt you feel overwhelmed and exhausted. I know because I was too. Together we can problem solve, learn how to best parent your child through pain, and start to reclaim a little bit of who YOU are through all this. In order to support our kids well, we need to be well ourselves. Give yourself the gift of support from someone who understands.
