Support to Help You Get Back on Track With Your Teenager

Enjoy Parenting Your Teenager Again

Parenting teenagers can be one the most challenging periods of life – but it can also be one of the most rewarding.

If the challenges of parenting your teenager are outweighing the rewards, then parent coaching could be your answer.

Working with an experienced coach can get you back on an even keel and making positive lasting changes. Even if the relationship with your teen feels permanently broken, or you have completely lost confidence in your ability as a parent; working with a coach can turn things around.

Parent Coaching Could Be For You If You Want To:

Feel more connected and in touch with your teenager

Effectively manage problem teen behaviours without arguments, bribes, or threats

Know what to do and say (or not say) when certain situations arise

Create an atmosphere of order and calm in the family home

Feel more confident in your approach and ability as a parent

Enjoy a more positive relationship with your teenager

Thanks to Chris Hudson we have been able to start again from the foundations, and build up a solid relationship which is now allowing my son to flourish naturally in all areas, not just school. I think that is perhaps the main lesson I have learned: a good relationship with your teenager, good communication and mutual respect, will put everything else in place naturally. It’s not an overnight miracle cure. It takes time, commitment and patience, but the results are spectacular!

How Specialist Coaching for Parenting Teenagers Helps

What Is Parent Coaching?

Coaching empowers you to get to where you want to be with your teenager.

Parent Coaching is a results-oriented process focused on the HOW of parenting.

Unlike therapy or counseling, coaching is not interested so much in WHY you and your teen are the way you are,  instead the coaching process develops your capacity to MAKE CHANGES. It is all about you taking action and making a difference.

Just like a personal trainer, or life coach, a parent coach helps you move from intentions to achieving, except in this case the focus is on parenting – especially parenting teenagers.


Who Is Parent Coaching For?

There are lots of reasons parents partner with a coach.

Sometimes people engage a coach when they don’t know what to do about their teenager’s behaviour.

Other people work with a coach because they feel confused about their own parenting.

Some parents are just sick of all the tension and stress and want to know how to have an enjoyable relationship with their teenager.

The one thing all parents who hire a coach have in common is a strong desire to see positive change their teenager’s life.

Parents who get the most out of parent coaching are those who are willing to be open and honest about what is happening and willing to try new ways of going about parenting.

Chris really helped me get in touch with my fears and agendas for my teen. This was an invaluable insight as it truly enlightened my teens individual and unique path. It brought to the light what I was doing to block communication and opened up the dialogue. And, the session on chores and reframing worked exceptionally well. It’s been insightful. Our teens can teach us so much about ourselves when we dare to be truly present and listen to their voice while quietening our own. Thank you.:)
