Parenting can be challenging at the best of times, and from my own personal experience I know just how hard parenting additional needs can be.
Let me remind you that YOU ARE NOT A BAD PARENT!
Our own emotional wellbeing play a large role in our perception and in our parenting.
As a parent it is easy to feel overwhelmed. When parenting a child or young person with PDA this quickly leads to exhaustion. Before you know it you don’t know where you are and feel like you just can’t cope.
I’ve been there.
We’ve all been there!
As a solutions based therapist my journey led me to explore ways I could implement my professional skills in order to show up for my family as my best self. I learnt that by emptying my emotional bucket I could create more ‘emotional space’ which has in turn given me more coping strategies. This journey is what led me to create the PDA Parent Sanctuary.
Here, I will take you on your own journey where you will explore your emotional wellbeing so that you can feel happier, calmer, more positive, increase your confidence, build your self esteem, and discover more compassion and acceptance for yourself.
