Sometimes family life feels like one big dysfunctional mess.

This might be funny at the movies, but the reality is that nobody sails through parenthood without feeling, at times, that it’s not that funny at all.

And when your role as parents starts interfering with your relationship as partners, things can get even more tricky.

Smart parents realise it’s how they approach their parenting problems that determines how their relationships (with their children, as well as between themselves) will evolve through these crucial years.

Sunshine Holistic Counselling works with parents to equip them with the skills they need to solve parenting problems and create healthy relationships with their kids (including adult “kids”), that truly thrive.
