Parenting Support

Phoenix Therapeutic Parenting Support Programme (PTPS)

The Phoenix Therapeutic Parenting Support programme was designed at the request of parents and organisations that use our therapy services, who expressed a need for a more tailored parenting programme.  Our programmes focus on the individual needs of parents by building on the parenting skills they have developed, but where they may lack the confidence or feel that they are not being “good-enough parents”.

Our support programme will build on the strengths that parents have and enable them to explore with other parents how they can change their parenting styles to establish a positive relationship with their child or children.
