Parenting with Confidence

What is Parenting with Confidence?

 

Raising a child can be one of the most fulfilling–but also one of the  most demanding–things we can do in life. Parenting with Confidence is a program for those who feel they might need a little help understanding and communicating with their kids, or who have some questions they would like to pose in a supportive group setting facilitated by a child psychologist. The format is informal, basically a question and answer format where the parents are encouraged (but not obligated) to ask me and the group questions about what they find difficult or particularly challenging as a parent. We then explore how to make things easier, more peaceful, and more enjoyable for you and your child. There are no one-size-fits-all prescriptions or methods; instead, we talk about what could work for you as a parent.  If you don’t want to talk, no problem, just come and listen and have a snack (light refreshments are served).

These workshops are a safe space where you will not be judged. Instead, we come together as a group to share stories, support each other, and see that we are not alone on this parenting journey. These workshops are not about being a good or bad parent. They are about feeling better, and a little more confident, in our roles as parents.

 

So what the **** do I know about parenting?

 

I am a proud mother myself, but that doesn't make me a know-it-all expert on parenting (and I don't pretend to be). But I do know a fair bit about kids. I have been working with children for over 25 years and I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Child Psychology. I also know about supporting parents. I am a Circle of Security Parenting  facilitator, I have training on running groups on parent-child communication (How To Talk So Kids Will Listen group facilitator), I interned in Family Therapy at the Jewish General Hospital, and I work with parents and children pretty much every day in my roles as a private psychologist and Pediatric Psychologist at the MAB-Mackay Rehabilitation Centre.

TESTIMONIALS

"We engaged Moire to help with our 3-year-old son who had been experiencing behavioural challenges. I found her to be approachable, kind and considered in her approach to assessing him and we felt very safe sharing personal details of the various issues.

I learnt a lot of great tips through our sessions to strengthen my parenting and build a stronger and more consistent relationship with my boy. The results in his improved behaviour speak for themselves.


She’s a wonderful therapist and comes highly recommended by our little family."
