Bellevue, WA, December 31, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Leah Koenig, Parent Coach at Collaborative Couples & Family Counseling in Bellevue Washington, is offering one hour of free parent coaching to help parents learn how helpful the program can be.
Many parents find themselves managing their children via crisis management. This leads to stressful households and tired parents. Working with a Parent Coach is a way for parents to take time and assess their values and goals, practice self-care so they have the time and energy to actually parent with intention.
"As we all live crazy busy lives and then add children, it becomes a challenge just to continue managing our own lives let alone instill values in our children." Koenig says. "As a Parent Coach I help parents to figure out where their strengths are and build on them while clarifying and instilling the values they hold dear."
Parent Coaching is a fairly new discipline. Most parents seek coaches to help with challenging issues with their children and family. Parent Coaches help parents clarify their values as well as their dreams for maintaining a healthy, happy family system. Then they work with parents to implement those visions.
"Parent Coaching is a way for people to breathe for a moment and take stock of where their parenting direction is taking them and their children." Koenig says. "Then we work together to draw out their idea vision and begin creating that in their family. My clients become intentional about how they are as parents and find the whole experience more rewarding."
Parents interested in receiving a free one hour of Parent Coaching can contact Leah Koenig through her website at www.securelove.net. Parent Coaching is available in person in Bellevue Washington or nationwide via phone.
Koenig is a partner at Collaborative Couples & Family Counseling in Bellevue Washington. There, she is a family therapist with a Master's of Arts degree in Behavioral Science from the Leadership Institute of Seattle at Bastyr University. She is currently completing certification through the Parent Coaching Institute in Bellevue Washington.
