About our private consultations

1.5hours (Times vary)The Parent Practice private consultations

An important part of our programme options are the Private Consultations we offer for parents. Private Consultations are a great way for parents to talk to a facilitator in a one-to-one environment rather than, or as well as, joining a course with other parents. Some parents come to a private consultation alone but many parents come with their partner. This is a good option if one parent is taking a course without their partner. Private Consultations are often booked by parents who want help with specific ‘hot spot’ areas where an experienced facilitator can immediately assist the parent. Read more about our facilitators here.

One Off Private Consultations

Our Private Consultations enable you to work through parenting issues over one or more sessions with an experienced Parent Practice facilitator who will support you to handle the issues in a positive and constructive way. After each session you will receive a written action plan to tackle the area of concern. Each session lasts for 90 minutes and costs £195 per session. We operate a 24 hour cancellation policy to avoid a 50% charge.

The Personal Parenting Package

One or two consultations may be sufficient to work through any issue you may wish to address. However sometimes parents find they want to cover the full range of skills we teach and have the benefit of the dedicated support from a facilitator as they learn. For these parents we offer a Personal Parenting Package. This is a series of six 90 minutes sessions tailored to your needs, with the flexibility to do these face-to-face, on skype or the phone, or to have shorter and more frequent sessions (minimum 60 minutes each), or trade some session time in for email support so you can ask questions of your facilitator as and when they arise.

The Personal Parenting Package also includes:
A copy of 'Real Parenting for Real kids' by Melissa Hood, Founder and Director of The Parent Practice. This book covers all the skills we teach as well as many real life stories from clients. 
A pack of our '30 day to Learn' cards. These provide a easy way to learn, implement and continually remind yourself of each skill.
The Manual that accompanies our Positive Parenting Course (as a PDF)

The Personal Parenting Package offers you direct one-to-one support from one facilitator over the duration of your programme who will be there to support you to allow you to learn and apply the skills in a way personal to you.

The Personal Parenting Package with costs £1200.

Where and when

Private Consultations are run at most of our centres across SW London. We offer daytime and evening appointments, Monday to Friday. Home visits are available on request in the London area subject to a facilitator being available. Home visits will incur an additional charge for the time and cost of travel which will be agreed prior to any session.

Telephone and Skype

Consultations by Skype or phone are available for parents who either prefer to be supported this way or who cannot visit one of our centres. This will be set up either at the time we confirm your booking or, for a Personal Package, prior to each session.

"Thank you so much for coming all the way to Chelsea to see Mark and I today. I am ecstatic that it was such a huge success. Mark really enjoyed it as did I and I certainly learned a huge amount. Look forward to our next session. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You handled us both quite brilliantly!"
