My opinion on coaching families

In tv-programmes such as the Supernanny you can follow stagnated families which are transformed into happy families. This gives a proper impression of the effort that your family is going to put when you commence with The Family Coach. And you can really achieve that much as on tv!

The difference with television is that I will allow your family to discover what works and what is dysfunctional. I don’t believe in me visiting your family for a short time and solving your problems. The solution you will find in yourself , you merely can’t reach it momentarily. I see parents as director of the family, who determine what’s right and wrong. I find it very important that you get in position as a parent. So you won’t find me bring a new set of rules to your house. Neither will I see to it that your children will listen to you. What I do bring to your family is that I will support you as a parent in how to handle rules with confidence. And I will observe and advice how your kids and you can listen properly to eachother.

When I start off with you my priority is to first listen intensely to your family, and to observe what’s going on. This gives me a broad view of what your family does, what works and what does not, and what matters to your family.
After this we sit down to talk through what seems to be necesary to reach your objectives. And I will start coaching right away to act accordingly. I will ask  a lot of you. To invest in new behaviour, to hold on, to do what you promise to do, to struggle, go two steps up, one step down…
By doing so you’ll be able to build permanently on a more stable family.

To fix your leaking roof you seek a qualified plummer. For repairing your damaged house you rely on your contractor. When you don’t see clearly enough, you’re happy to buy new glasses of your optician. For familycoaching it’s the same thing: is your family coming to a hold? Then you try and fix it with my familycoaching!

The Familycoach believes in simplicity. That’s why the application for The Familycoach is simple and short. Parents have worries enough so you don’t want to spoil time and energy with complicated procedures if not necesary. The Familycoach isn’t a scientist, but an experienced counselor who combines lots of education and people skills with intuition and a welcoming no nonsense attitude. If scientific books were enough to get your family going, you would have read them ages ago, and not be calling me for help. Neither will I harass your family with complicated questionnairs; I want to know how you see things, simply by asking you directly and at your own place. Like this, together we discover the unique key for your family. Which is worth a good investment.
