New ways to look at parenting:
Wendy and Maddison's story.

Wendy and her daughter Maddison used to have a great relationship – they could talk about anything. Now they were talking less, and Maddison was spending a lot of time in her bedroom.

Our professionals helped Wendy to create an action plan with goals to improve their connection. Wendy realised that she was trying to make too many decisions for Maddison, as if she were still a young child.
