Children don't come with an owner's manual

Knowing how to respond to difficult behaviours can be confusing and overwhelming.

In Circle of Security, we focus on promoting a secure attachment and understanding the best communication style between you and your child so you can:

  • Better understand your child's needs
  • Put boundaries around difficult behaviour without limiting emotions
  • Create lasting security & sense of safety for your child
  • Feel great about your parenting!

It's easy to feel the pressure to be a "perfect parent"

Caregiving is one of the hardest jobs in the world. We find ourselves constantly wondering if we are meeting our child’s needs and helping them grow in the healthiest way possible.

Why Choose LightHouse Counselling & Wellness?

We all wonder if we’re getting it right, if we’re meeting our child’s needs, helping them grow in a way that will allow them to feel confident about who they are – but sometimes it can feel overwhelming – in so many ways.

Sometimes we try to combine our own parental instincts with the well-meaning advice from others – but it often leaves us feeling more confused about what is working and what isn’t. Not to mention we all have our own experiences of how we were raised which influence how we show up as parents!

When we think of behaviour we don’t like in our children, we might think about stopping it through consequences and punishment – which can cause tension and resentment. The Circle of Security switches the focus to help us learn that behaviour is a child’s way of communicating a need within the relationship.

There is a better way. Based on decades of attachment research and tested relationship tools, this program offers simple and effective steps to understanding your children’s needs, creating lasting security, and giving you a path to follow on your parenting journey.

There’s no such thing as perfect parenting – our experienced team can help you take the right steps toward a more loving and trusting relationship between you and your child.

Circle of Security is led by trained facilitators and members of our team of licensed psychotherapists.
