Reflective Parenting Group
The reflective parenting group is an eight week programme which offers a highly collaborative approach for parents in order to promote family relationships, sensitive parenting and reduce the number of conflicts, bringing about behavioural changes and greater harmony.

Parent Toddler Group
Weekly groups for parents and toddlers provide a consistent and safe environment for the toddler and their caregiver to allow them to explore ongoing concerns, as well as strengthen their relationship. This context allows the toddler’s developmental needs to be thought about, facilitates separation and individuation, and addresses difficulties in attachment and attunement.
