Welcome to Total Family Coaching & Parenting
Total Family Coaching & Parenting is a community based, locally rooted organisation consisting of highly skilled practitioners from different professional backgrounds experienced in working with children, young people, and families in any setting.
We are a team of highly skilled, multi-lingual family and parenting practitioners, offering an intensive support package to reduce trauma and enhance the wellbeing of families by providing psychosocial support to individuals and groups, through practical and therapeutic approaches.
We offer an inclusive service for families, to help them take on the big problems in their lives using a whole family model. We provide individual and group parenting and family coaching sessions tailored to fit each family’s needs.
Family coaching model is a strength based approach and focuses on working with families and children to establish their individual and family functioning strengths. We believe that families even when facing difficulties and challenges, have many strengths that need to be recognised and encouraged. We provide tailored and family-centred packages of support to children and families who are already experiencing complex and ongoing problems and universal/inclusive services for all the community. The emphasis is on constructing solutions rather than resolving problems. The approach is based on the idea of recognising the family’s past trauma and difficult experiences with the aim of helping them focus on identifying what they want to achieve rather than on what brought them here. The approach does not dwell extensively with the past but instead focuses on the present and future.
Total Family Coaching stands for families' rights to better lives, access to support and equal opportunities. We believe in families and their ability to make positive changes and improve their relationships and quality of life. A core value of our work is respecting the humanity and dignity of all people under any circumstances.
