Therapy for Fatherhood
Given the pressures that many men face to earn a living and be a loving husband, it can be quite a daunting task to also be a present and loving father. Fatherhood is undeniably an important undertaking. As a father, you play a significant role in the development of your children, to protect, make decisions, guide as well as comfort and teach.
As a result of this, you may find yourself with many questions:
How do I responsibly stake claim to my paternal authority?
How do I deal with my anger when my children don’t do what I want them to do?
How do I become the father I want to be, especially when I experienced something different with my own father?
How do I deal with not knowing how to father?
Navigating the Inner Terrain of Fatherhood
It can be stressful being a dad sometimes. It can also exert stress on your relationship, when the focus of attention changes and you have to contend with the needs of your family. Furthermore, whether you are aware of it or not, becoming a father can illuminate ways in which your own father may have fallen short. This can be startling, to say the least. Because of these occurrences, fatherhood can also be extremely rewarding and empowering.
I help fathers through the stress and anxiety of balancing family, work and their own interests and needs.
