Sometimes living in even the healthiest of families feels like one big dysfunctional mess.

This might be funny at the movies, but the reality is that nobody sails through the experience of raising happy and healthy teenagers without feeling, at times, that it’s not that funny at all.

Smart parents realise it’s often not the problems themselves, it’s what they do about their parenting challenges that determines how their relationships will evolve through these crucial years.

Sunshine Holistic Counselling specialises in equipping parents with the skills they need to create healthy relationships with their kids (including adult “kids”) that truly thrive.

experiencing relationship challenges with their children

(whether young or adult children), including:
