In 2017 I became a step mother for 2 amazing girls. It was not easy to be honest. It was a big challenge for me. We went through competition, protest and resentment; they were testing my patience and my boundaries. It took them a while to trust me and it took me a while to connect with them. It was not easy for all of us but now they accept me in their step mom and I am proud of the relationship that we created. We did it together!
In 2020 I gave birth to a wonderful soul, my daughter Ava. It was the beginning of a new journey, new challenges, completely different from the one that I had with my step daughters. It affected everyone in our family… A new family member that brought something completely new to my life. I feel confident and content. I trust my self and I trust my family. We are happy together. Not 24/7. We have our ups and downs, but I know that together we can overcome anything.
One day I was sharing my experience with one of the participents of my group therapy and she said,
I am inspired by parents like you!
Have you thought about doing some courses for other parents?
What a wonderful idea! The next day, I create a parent/grandparent support group. I am looking forward to meeting you! Are you coming?
Parent and Grandparent Support Group is a very effective and affordable (compared to a private consultation) type of therapy. During our online mettings you will emerge into the healing atmosphere of trust, care, and support from other parents and grandparents just like you. You will learn how to get in touch with your child, connect to your child’s true feelings, help your child to overcome their fears, and create healthy boundaries. Group therapy will also help you to understand yourself better, develop the parenting style that works best for your family and create healthy, happy relationships with other family members.
Topics We Work On
One of the most important topics that we work on during our meetings is family relationships. We focus on the relationships among parents, on parent-grandparents relationship and, of course, on child-adult relationship. Family creates foundation for child’s beliefs and values. Family brings joy and fear to a child’s life. Family provides a “blueprint” for the child’s future successes and failures. In our group meetings you will learn how to teach your child to be confident, how to take responsibilities in life, how to express theirseves freely, how to say “NO”, how to connect to others and enjoy their lives. All topics and all questions are welcome. Everyone’s opinion matters, respected and being heard!
Methods We Use
In our parents support group, we use a variety of techniques: art therapy, family constellations, initiation therapy, guided imaging, NLP, and bodily therapy. Everyone can find a tool that works best for them.
