Support for Parents

‘Telling the stories of our lives is crucial to understanding ourselves and understanding ourselves is crucial to our relationships especially those with our children.’ - Dr Patricia Crittenden (2009) Raising Parents

It can be a hard and lonely experience to realise that your child is struggling psychologically. Sometimes, as parents and carers, we know the reasons why, but often find it difficult to know how to help. Umbrella offers you a service where you can find such help, either for you as an adult, coaching for you as a parent, or supporting you and your child together. We also work with groups of parents to talk things through and where you can explore new ways of relating to your child with the support of others. Please see therapists’ individual profiles for more information.

We are passionate about making a difference, restoring hope and working together for a more positive future
