Praktijk Bink coaching for children, young adults, and parents
Parents often raise their children with the best of intentions, in a loving environment. But that doesn’t mean the process of bringing them up is always a smooth one. Often both children and their parents/caregivers face difficult challenges for many reasons. For example, children may:
- Go through periods of low self-esteem
- Have difficulty making friends at school
- Struggle to regulate their emotions
- Deal with puberty issues
- See a decline in their school results
They may also face issues at home, like dealing with a divorce or a loss in the family. In any of these events, parents may not know how to address these issues, or even where to start helping their child.
And as a parent, you may struggle with parenting issues as well. Maybe you don’t know how to maintain harmony in your family or how to start a conversation with your child about sensitive topics. You may find it difficult to guard your boundaries or you may have clashes with your child or your partner.
You don’t have to solve these problems alone! Coaching helps you gain new insights into yourself, your child or your family.
Coaching at Praktijk Bink is personal and effective. I coach with respect and without judgment. I focus on unraveling the request for help and I work with you and your family to find solutions that work. I help families understand that there is room for growth and change. There is no standard approach because there is no such thing as a standard family. We will work together to see what suits you and your situation!
Sometimes just a few sessions are enough to find the space to see things from a different perspective.
In addition to being effective and helpful, my practice provides a fun and inspiring environment to explore and learn. Above all, I work with the talent, resilience and self-solving abilities of children, young adults and parents.
In my practice, I have years of experience coaching children and their families. Along with Dutch children, I am also experienced in coaching expat children and their families.I recognize that starting a new life in a new country brings challenges. Everything is new: The country, culture, school system, people, and friends. There are different rules and expectations. Relatives and peers are often far away. You and your family can feel isolated.
Parenting can be especially hard for expats. And if your child does not want to share insecurities or doesn’t want to open up to you, you may sometimes feel lost. You don’t have someone to fall back on. Your child may experience deeper emotions and insecurities far from home. They can sometimes lose perspective and struggle to fit into their new life.
If you, your child or your family struggle with these issues, coaching can bring you insight and understanding. It can be helpful to share your feelings, thoughts and insecurities. Together we can put them in the right place. If needed, we take a deeper look, but sometimes sharing and reflecting is enough to give you or your child more room to adjust.
