The Baby Calmer's Telephone/Skype Consultation Package - Overview:
The Baby Calmer's Telephone/Skype Consultation Package is specifically designed for 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.
