Parent & Carer Coaching 

Did you know that therapy sessions make up less than 1% of your child’s daily life?  

At The Spark, we place great importance on empowering and educating parents and caregivers to find ways to help their child and family flourish.  We focus on building your capacity to integrate strategies into your everyday life. 

Strong, safe and connected relationships are essential for children to learn about themselves and their world.  Attuned relationships are the safe harbour children come home to.  They nurture self-awareness, self-esteem and resilience.  As such, parent/carer sessions are required for all services, at least once a term when engaging in a longer term service, and more frequently if you are at the beginning of your OT service, providing opportunities for continued problem-solving discussions.

Change happens when you establish what is most important to you and ideas are woven into your daily life which is why building a strong parent/carer partnership is so crucial to the service we provide. For this reason, we are unable to offer OT service to families who do not engage in parent sessions.

Parent and carer coaching and consultations are also available as a short-term block of sessions by using evidence-informed approaches to help you navigate your parenting journey.  We work with infants through to adolescents and supporting you with parenting strategies for all age groups.   Areas you may seek support for...

  • Understanding and managing behaviour

  • Strength based parenting.  

  • Reading and responding to your child's signs of stress. 

  • Strengthening relationships and attunement skills. 

  • Developing structure and routines.  

  • Oppositional behaviour. 

  • Creating a home environment to support your child's developmental needs.

  • Understanding and making sense of your child's developmental profile.

  • Eating and feeding.  

  • Sleep and settling.
