Parenting Courses

We provide group and individual courses for parents who would like to improve their relationship with their children. All our courses are held in the Wellington region. If you are from another part of the country, we can help you to find a course in your area

Group course

“Initiating Independence” – a parenting course for parents of 6 to 12-year olds

The course “Initiating Independence” aims to provide information and build skills to help create improved family relationships. The six sessions are designed to empower parents to solve behavioural issues and to understand how to communicate with and support their child through the middle years.



Individual Course

If your concerns are about a teenager rather than about a child or if you are unable to attend the “Initiating Independence” course, we can help.

Our therapists will work with you to tailor a course to meet your specific needs. Please call us on (04) 802 5767 or email us at
