PARENTHOODINDIVIDUAL THERAPY; PARENT-INFANT/CHILD THERAPY; GROUP PARENTING THERAPY
Our work with parents focuses on helping parents to think about what is behind their children’s behaviours and how parents' own beliefs and experiences influence their understanding and management of their children (also see description under Infant/Perinatal services). We offer an inclusive service for gender and sexuality diverse parents, via individual and/or group therapy.
The Lighthouse MBT Parenting Programme is a group therapy program which aims to promote sensitive caregiving in parents. The programme is designed to enhance parents’ capacity for curiosity about their child’s inner world, to help parents ‘see’ (understand) their children clearly, to make sense of misunderstandings in their relationship with their child and to help parents inhibit insensitive responses in those moments of misunderstanding and to repair the relationship when strained.
