Parental Guidance

In this day and age where life has a much less structured format, parents are often confronted with child/ adolescent behaviour that breaks down their confidence as parents. The increase in many disorders amongst the youth complicates the situation and causes uncertainty. The presence of learning barriers within a family could cause complex family dynamics and discomfort. The role of the psychologist would be to create an accepting atmosphere for parents to deal with the challenges of parenting.

Sessions with Dr. Tienie are mostly structured around burning issues. Some sessions may be informational in nature, whilst others would be focussed on techniques like behaviour change and the building of relationships.
