FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Parent Therapy

Parent therapy is about helping with the more challenging aspects of being a parent. These challenges include:

  • Bedtime
  • Homework
  • Tantrums
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Defiance
  • School issues
  • Self-esteem

These are just some of the issues that the team at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic can help parents navigate in parent therapy sessions.

Parent therapy is important because looking after children is one of the hardest jobs you can do. It’s also the most rewarding and significant role in life, but getting it right isn’t always easy. This is true even if your children are healthy and don’t have developmental problems, mental health disorders, or learning disabilities.

If your children do have problems, parenting becomes even harder. Struggling to cope leaves you exhausted, frustrated, and vulnerable to mental health problems of your own. This situation is also not ideal for the child, who needs all the right help and support they can get.

The philosophy at Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic is that children are far more likely to flourish if they have both love and positive discipline. In order to provide loving care for your child, it’s essential that you understand the importance of loving and caring for yourself, too.

Self-awareness is a vital part of being a parent. Your children are going to present you with numerous opportunities over time in which they can observe your reactions and see how you respond to problems and challenges.

In essence, experience and research show that children consistently respond well to parents who have empathy, understanding, limit-setting tools, and self-awareness.

The experienced, highly qualified members of staff who run parent therapy begin by helping you experience what it’s like being in your child’s shoes. Using this technique helps you to understand your child better. Your parent coach then equips you with new and positive tools to help you work with your child rather than being in constant opposition.

Whether you’re tackling a specific behavior or facing a more significant life issue, the Abbey Neuropsychology Clinic parent therapy team provides nonjudgmental understanding, unique observations, and valuable techniques to help your family get through it together.

Dr. Abbey saved our family. This might sound like hyperbole, but it is true.

The clinic itself is fine. The building is in a convenient location on Cal Ave and there's usually parking. Wish they'd leave the bathroom door unlocked, tho. What I'm more interested in is recommending therapist Rachael Little to anyone hoping to feel better or at least know that someone out there cares. I ended up with Rachael mostly by luck...
