Annabelle uses Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), founded by Dr. Sue Johnson, as the foundation of understanding relationship dynamics through attachment. This approach has multiple research studies that demonstrate its effectiveness in improving relationships and deepening bonds, particularly with couples and families in distress.
Raising a family is one of the most important jobs you'll ever have - as a parent, you are the catalyst for shaping the heart, mind and future of your child. Brain science proves that the key time for shaping the brains of our little ones is zero to 5 years old. It’s important to establish healthy communication skills, expectations, and relationship patterns early on so our children our armed with tools to get them through life’s challenges to help them explore the full possibilities of their life and who they most want to be.
The early years are the time to be most conscious and mindful to help develop and nurture the compassionate, caring, confident skills that aren’t taught in school. During this magical age range, our children are mostly relying on us to make sense of their world and their emotional needs.
The tricky part is we have learned to respond to life from our memories and emotional experiences, many rooted in our own childhood development, which makes it challenging to not burden our children with our own unresolved, and many times unconscious childhood issues! Nurturing early relationships provides the foundation for their self-concept, outlook, and lifelong relationship qualities.
Annabelle can help you build the confidence you need to parent in the way you want to so you break out of old patterns and create new ones. By providing the tools she can help you feel good about your choices and learn to trust your own instincts so you can forge the relationships you most want for your family.
