Event description

Description

Parenting can be both a joy and very hard work.

And things get in the way of us being the parents we want to be. Sometimes they are things outside us, but more often they are our own thoughts and feelings. They might be thoughts about ourselves, about our children, about our parenting, or about what others think about our parenting...

  • Do you want to be a calmer parent?
  • Do you have a clear picture of the kind of parent you want to be?
  • Do you want to balance your children's needs with your own?
  • Would you like to be more comfortable with your own thoughts and feelings?
  • Do you want to support your child's emotional development - as well as your own?

Your Parenting ACT is a 5 week course that helps you parent in line with your own values. It uses principles from ACT — Acceptance and Commitment Therapy — to help you make room for all your thoughts and feelings, so you can respond flexibly as a parent. ACT uses acceptance, mindfulness and behavioural strategies to help people pursue what matters most to them, including being the parent they want to be.






The course will be held over five Friday mornings from the 18th of May to the 22nd of June, from 10:00am to 12:00pm. (No course on the 1st of June due to Queen's Birthday Weekend.) It will be held at Skylight.





Giselle Bahr is a clinical psychologist working in Wellington. She works primarily with young people and their families in private practice. Before that she spent 15 years working in Wellington's public health system and teaching in a university clinical training programme.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

A bus stop on the corner of Vivien St and Cambridge Terrace is very close to Skylight.

Street parking is available on Vivien St and Cambridge Terrace.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

To find out more or to ask any questions please ring or email Giselle at hello@bahr.net.nz and 027 567 4496.

Do we need to attend as a parenting couple?

The course is designed so that any individual parent can take part and apply the skills to their parenting. It is not necessary for parents to attend the course together. Each person attending needs to register individually.
