The Baby Calmer's Telephone/Skype Consultation Package - Overview:
The Baby Calmer's Telephone/Skype Consultation Packages are perfectly suited to:
The Baby Calmer's services are specifically designed to support parents who are feeling overwhelmed by the plethora of conflicting parenting information available, and are seeking safe, gentle, research based, emotion-focused information and guidance, along with an empathic and supportive listening ear, to help guide them to the most appropriate, immediately tangible options towards making a difference to their own parenting concerns or their baby, toddler or young child's presenting issues.
The Baby Calmer’s Telephone/Skype Consultation Package can help parents express their frustrations and struggles to someone who can understand and empathise with their difficulties, put them at ease, and begin to offer some immediate and useful information, guidance, reassurance, counselling and / or support that responds to their specific parenting issue or concerns regarding their newborn, toddler or young child.
It is also important to acknowledge that whilst a telephone/skype consultation package can provide enough time to offer the 'general' support and immediate feedback most parents are seeking, it may be unrealistic to expect that a long-standing or complex issue(s) can be resolved in this context. The Baby Calmer may recommend a more suitable service from those offered on the website, should this need arise. Generally speaking, telephone/skype consultation clients report that the support they receive and outcomes they experience from working in this context, more than meets their expectations!
The Baby Calmer's professional philosophies and approaches to supporting and guiding parents and their babies, toddlers and young children are very much based on sound research, as well as current insights into infant and early years development. A strong focus is placed on supporting, fostering and preserving both the attachment process as well as the physical and emotional bonding that occurs between parents and their baby, toddler or young child. Clients can be assured that The Baby Calmer will never recommend, teach or use any forms of controlled crying, controlled comforting, controlled settling or other ignoring strategies when working with families.
