It can be hard to know how to best guide our girls through the challenges they face with friendships and bullying, which is a concern for many parents. In this workshop Jenny draws on her experience as a counsellor working with young people and more recently as a family coach. Together with Andrea they will give parents ideas and inspiration that will help them deal with different situations.
Jenny Jackson and Andrea Stringer
Both Jenny and Andrea are Family Coaches at The Parenting Place.
As a family therapist Jenny has worked with children and young people with severe and challenging behaviours and their families. She is a co-ordinator for Toolbox parenting groups and is the mother of three young adults. Jenny is skilled in getting alongside parents of teens to offer strategies and solutions that strengthen family connections and positively impact the atmosphere in the family. She is committed to encouraging parents to be intentional, confident and to have fun in their parenting.
Andrea has a background in psychology and mental health. She has been an Early Years Toolbox facilitator for 3 years, and loves watching parents get together and realise they are not the only ones struggling with the demands of this age group! Andrea has two young daughters, who give her countless daily opportunities to practice what she teaches. Seeing parents gain skills and grow in confidence to coach their little ones is both the challenge and reward of her work at The Parenting Place.
