Parenting Skills – Joey Tai

Joey Tai     Quals: BA Psych (hons), Master of Clinical Psychology.

Parenting Skills: I believe that in general, there are 2 kinds of parenting which can potentially create difficulties for children. The first is an over-possessive style of parenting which can often be suffocating or smothering for the child. The second is the opposite, whereby the child experiences the parent as aloof, cold or unavailable. It is remarkable how later psychological/emotional difficulties arise from these early experiences a child has with either or both parents.

Counselling Approach: Typically I would like to meet with either or both parents to understand what might be the problem from their perspective. The next phase of therapy involves sessions with the child, whereby I can understand the underlying dynamics that are underpinning his/her difficulties. Following this, a suitable intervention is laid out for the parents with ongoing support and evaluation.
