Parenting Counselling & Support

Navigate the journey of parenthood with compassionate guidance and support.

Becoming a parent often means re-parenting yourself, and at Soulful Balance, we understand the unique challenges that come with the various stages of parenting. Life with a new baby is undoubtedly exhausting, and as you progress through parenting a toddler, tween, and teen, exhaustion takes on a different form. It's common to compare your parenting experience to others, leading to feelings of jealousy and resentment. The demands of being on call 24/7 and feeling touched out can impact your mental health and strain your relationship with your partner..

Parenthood is a humbling experience, and our Parenting Counselling and Support services are here to provide a space for you to unpack the stress and challenges of parenting. Individual and couples counseling before and after the arrival of your baby can be a brilliant way to navigate the emotional complexities of parenthood. Therapy offers an opportunity to tune into your emotional reactions, impulses, and perceptions that may affect your ability to think clearly and remain flexible while interacting with your children and partner.

At Soulful Balance, we acknowledge the difficulty of losing control over your schedule, struggling with intimacy, and facing the myriad parenting choices. In couples counseling, our focus is on increasing communication, supporting you in adapting to your new roles, and helping you create shared meaning to strengthen your foundation as you journey through parenthood together..

We are here to remind you to be compassionate with yourself and extend that compassion to your partner and children during challenging moments. Our therapists will help you work through feelings of parental guilt, cultivate curiosity over control, and tackle parenting challenges with resilience. We understand the desire to raise warm, genuine, kind-hearted, and resilient children, and we're here to assist you in balancing their needs with your own. Soulful Balance is dedicated to helping you manage the parenting journey, enabling you to be more present with your little ones, your partner, and yourself. We're here to support you in cultivating resilience and giving yourself permission to be okay with the present, knowing that you are doing the best you can.
