Parent Consulting

Ruth consults with parents about the emotional and behavioural issues they see in their children. As a Professional Associate of the Neufeld Institute, Ruth has trained with Dr. Gordon Neufeld in his attachment-based developmental approach (www.neufeldinstitute.)

Ruth had previously worked as a Children’s Counsellor in the UK, seeing children separately from their parents but her training with Gordon Neufeld caused her to change her approach to only working with parents to consult with the aim of enabling them to be their children’s best ‘therapist’. Through the years of working from this approach with parents Ruth has seen that when children are healthily attached to their parents or caregivers, then they blossom into their full maturity, and they no longer display ‘problem’ behaviour.
