Family & Parenting Psychology
Relationships are everything. Family offers our first lesson in how to foster connections with others and how to maintain relationships throughout life.
Happy parents have happy kids.
Megan offers parenting support based on evidence-based interventions to improve the happiness of the entire home. Positive parenting interventions are offered with an emphasis on self-compassion, mindfulness connection, the establishment of healthy boundaries to teach limit setting, active listening, healthy communication, gratitude and forgiveness. Identifying character strengths are core to a strength-based parenting approach and form the basis of Megan’s work helping families thrive. Further information about positive parenting interventions can be accessed via the Positive Parenting Program (currently free for Victorians due to the COVID-19 pandemic) and The Strength Switch (book) by Lea Waters.
If your family is experiencing high levels of conflict or has complex needs, Megan will discuss alternative options for support.
Megan considers families experiencing high levels of conflict as requiring highly specialised support through organisations such as The Geelong Family Relationships Centre, Child FIRST or Step By Step Support for Separated Parents.
Families experiencing family violence are encouraged to phone ‘000’ if they are in immediate danger and suggested to access highly specialised support via The Orange Door on 1800 312 820 (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday) or Safe Steps on 1800 015 188 (24hr).
