Our services

We take a client-led approach, so what we do depends on your needs and goals. We provide support in your home and we tailor our work around your priorities.

The support can be short-term or longer-term, depending on what works for you. For example, you may want more confidence to manage tricky or more challenging times with your child, or to know what your baby is telling you, or to feel closer to your child. Where you want to begin is where we will start.

Depending on your needs, we offer an evidenced based 10-session program called ‘Promoting First Relationships’, that supports the relationship between you and your child, and supports you to build your confidence in understanding yourself and your baby. We also have useful resources and information about parenting, and children’s emotional and behavioural development.
