“My close friends also observed and commented on the changed dynamic between my 2 sons and myself and the fact that I seemed more content and at ease in my role as a single parent.”
I was referred to Laura Markovitz for parent coaching and started meeting with her in August 2014. A total of 12 sessions followed over the course of the next 4 months.
During the first session Laura asked me to sketch what I would consider to be an ideal outcome to our sessions. I was quite idealistic in my description, however I was not really expecting any of my wishes to truly materialise.
Over the course of the weeks to follow Laura gave me small manageable tasks. These resulted in small shifts that had a cumulative effect and amounted to large changes in my family dynamic. I didn’t really realise it as it was happening but towards the end of our sessions I became aware that I had actually attained almost 3/4 of what was stated in my wish list at the outset. My close friends also observed and commented on the changed dynamic between my 2 sons and myself and the fact that I seemed more content and at ease in my role as a single parent.
The sessions with Laura were valuable far beyond what I had initially expected and made a huge positive difference to the way I relate to and experience my children.
