Managing Challenging Behaviour in Children: Parenting a child can be the most joyous, yet most challenging job, you will ever do. Finding a consistent and effective discipline system can alleviate a great deal of pressure in the household. Do you find that you are: Explaining yourself to your child, over and over again; trying to persuade your child to do what needs to be done; not being heard; arguing with your child; trying to make them understand your point of view; yelling at your child; at a loss for what to do?

Counselling Approach:  Leia uses evidence based therapeutic techniques in her treatment with clients. For effective Parent Strategies Leia uses the 123 Magic approach to discipline by Dr. Thomas Phelan. The 123 Magic program helps to reduce the amount of talking and emotion while disciplining your child; to provide a consistent and easy to understand discipline system; to reduce the amount of guilt and anger often associated with disciplining your child; and overall to gain prompt compliance from your child – so more time can be spent doing the things you both enjoy, rather than getting caught up in anger and frustration.
