Who we see
Parents of children ages 5 to 11 years old whose worries or fears are getting in the way of things. This could be phobias, feeling panicky or worries about the family.
Parents of Children ages 5 to 8 years old who would like to access help with how to respond to behaviour which they find problematic or difficult. This might be regular outbursts, difficulty following rules or temper tantrums.
What we ask from parents who see us:
To be able to identify a problem they want to change and define some goals
That they are open to the idea of guided self-help interventions and can be committed to carrying out agreed weekly between session tasks
What we offer
CWPs offer rapid access to guided self-help interventions, which is a structured set of sessions based the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). This type of therapy can be effective in dealing with difficulties with worry and low mood.
Guided self-help is tailored to help parents understand and subsequently manage experienced difficulties by:
Helping to making sense of presenting difficulties
Identifying what the child or parent wants to change, setting goals and monitoring progress
Offering psycho-education to parents you understand the difficulties.
Introducing new ideas and strategies
Problem-solving and creating a ‘staying well plan’
