Circle of Security parenting
At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.
Tania is a registered circle of security parenting facilitator. She runs groups on Friday and Saturday mornings and some evenings for parents of young kids (4 months to 6 years). This is a parenting program will help parents to:
build connection with your children
help regulate your children’s difficult emotions
learn how to recognise your child’s needs
learn about what might motivate kids to get angry or sad and what to do
repair relationships when things get tough
Learn how kids might miscue what they want if they feel insecure
reflect on your own relationships and parenting styles
learn what impact different ways of interacting can have on kids of this age
Tania is a registered psychologist who works with families on the Northern Beaches of Sydney. She is a mother of 2 in her late 30’s and understands how difficult the whole parenting gig can be. At Mind in ACTion she sees parents and kids of all ages to help them manage emotional, behavioural, social and cognitive difficulties and bring a feeling of calm amidst the chaos.
Tania uses therapy modalities such as: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion based cognitive therapy, Mindfulness based Cognitive therapy, Attachment therapy, Play therapy, and Generative change work. She is trained to facilitate circle of security and triple P parenting programs. In this way, the therapy combines modern brain based science with ancient techniques like mindfulness to ground you in the present moment, let go of those things which no longer serve you and get you into the life that you want to be living despite having the inevitable stresses that goes along with being human.
