Parent support sessions

Play Therapy Melbourne clinicians can work with parents and carers to help resolve their parenting concerns and increase parenting confidence. Clinicians help parents and incorporate a combination of child-parent relationship therapy techniques and the latest findings from Interpersonal Neurobiology (Dr Dan Siegel) into their parenting.

Clinicians help parents and carers:

  • learn ways to respond to their child when they are experiencing ‘big’ emotions
  • learn how to set limits effectively in a gentle way, which preserves children’s self-esteem
  • increase feelings of warmth towards their children
  • strengthen the bond they have with their child
  • better understand child behaviour
  • understand the interaction between parent’s internal state and the influence this has on children’s behaviour, and
  • manage their own responses to minimise child behavioural escalation.

Parents and carers will feel better equipped to help their child:

  • manage their feelings and behaviours in appropriate ways
  • strengthen their self-esteem and self-confidence
  • develop responsibility and self-control
  • become self-reliant and self-motivated
  • develop emotional intelligence and self-awareness, and
  • decrease anxiety, anger, sadness and other ‘big’ emotions.


We recognise it can be hard to find some child-free time to attend appointments. Play Therapy Melbourne can offer teletherapy parenting appointments after hours if required.

We are in 4 convenient locations across Melbourne
