WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY

WHAT IS A PARENT SUPPORT CALL/SKILL BUILDING GROUP?

Build support around the work you do as a parent, reduce your stress level, build connection in your family life and support for yourself.  Parenting is challenging at the best of times. There is always lots of advice, but in short supply is a safe, non-judgmental place to:

  • make sense of that advice and plan for our parenting;
  • unload when things get tough;
  • hear that we are not alone;
  • be appreciated for how hard we try;
  • share successes and happy moments; and
  • reflect on our own stories and how these influence our parenting.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A HAND IN HAND PARENTING SUPPORT CALL?

  • learn about how Hand in Hand Parenting can work in your family;
  • share experiences of using the Listening Tools at home;
  • have questions answered;
  • each parent is listened to in turn by the group, in a confidential environment, without comment, judgement or advice.

WHAT WILL I GET FROM BEING IN THE GROUP?

Being part of a Support Call/Skill Building Group can help you develop a support network which you can use to help solve your parenting challenges. Getting a chance to be listened to in this way can often turn your day around, and over time, improves your capacity to connect with your children, and your flexibility in responding to their difficulties.

WHO CAN ATTEND?

These groups are open to parents of  children aged 0-12.  It is preferable if you have some familiarity with the Hand in Hand/Parenting by Connection approach. For a good general introduction please see our free resources and materials

For a more in-depth introduction, we can highly recommend the Short Online Parenting Courses on common parenting topics.  If you are not sure, please contact Madeleine to discuss.

HOW BIG ARE THE GROUPS, AND HOW LONG ARE THE CALLS?

Groups are limited to six participants, and meet for four to eight times via phone based conference call. The length of time we meet will depend on how many people join the group, but it is between 60 and 90 minutes.  If for some reason only one person is on the call, the call will run 30 minutes max.

WHAT TIME IS THAT WHERE I AM?

TELL ME MORE ABOUT ONE-ON-ONE CONSULTATIONS.

I am offering an hour long One-on-One consultation at 40% off the regular price if you sign up for these Support Calls. This gives us the opportunity to get started straight away with understanding the challenges and strengths in your family.

If you are new to Hand in Hand, I can introduce the approach tailored specifically for your parenting challenges. If you are familiar, then we can dive more deeply into developing a Personalised Parenting Connection Plan for your family, to solve problems and help you build connection and closeness. You will then be able to use the Support Calls to follow up on that plan and have your questions answered as you implement it.

Consultations are offered to participants on these Support Calls at $65.00/hour which is a 40% discount on normal prices.  The initial consultation, if we have not worked together before, is 75 minutes long, and costs $82.00.  Subsequent consultations, or if we have worked together before, are charged at $65/hour and generally last 60 minutes.  If you have booked for a 60 minute consultation, and we go over time, the additional time will be added to payments for subsequent consultations.  After the intitial consultation, you must book for 60 minutes, but you can take it as 30 minute sessions if you wish.

Because of the differences in time-zones, if you are in the US, I can be available from 2p.m. Pacific and 5p.m. Eastern (which is from 7a.m. Sydney Time)  My timezone is AEST/AEDT (Sydney) and if you need to work out what time this is where you are, I recommend using http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/

WHAT HAVE OTHER PARENTS SAID ABOUT THESE GROUPS?

“Thank you so much for the support and resources. I’m happy to report that my boy and I have gotten back on track; I’m finally able to think well about what’s been going on (I really feel as if I’ve been crawling through a dark hole and have finally emerged into the light). We’re connecting regularly again and both of us have been more considerate and loving. What I have learned has allowed me to breathe more deeply and better understand this new phase of parenting. It’s true that everything goes better at home when I am actively participating in a class or weekly call support group. I’m looking forward to more!”

“The adult-adult listening time has been great because I normally don’t have anyone to offload to.”

“I’ve found the listening time helpful as it is interesting to listen to where others are at and it’s a great opportunity to get things off your chest.”

“I’ve been surprised at how useful it has been just to have a chance to talk through what is going on. Things seem to become clearer. I know that no-one is going to judge me, or give me advice I don’t need.”
