Is in-person coaching done with my child or without?
At Parenting Power, we believe that there is a solution for every family. We prefer our initial meeting to be without the children in order to have a clear, honest discussion about the challenges at hand. From that discussion, we’ll be able to determine whether the child should be included in the coaching. For many of our clients, we have completed successful coaching without ever meeting their children. For others, we’ve enjoyed working through challenges with the entire family.
How do I know which coach I will get?
Julie and Gail do all of the coaching for the company. You may request to work with a particular coach if you have a preference. At Parenting Power, we recognize that there is a particular fit that comes with each relationship. If you would like to request a change of coach, please feel free to do that directly with your current coach or through our administrator.
What type of payment do you take for your coaching and products?
We take Visa, Mastercard, and E-transfer.
Can the parenting coaching be covered under my extended health benefits?
While some of our clients have been able to submit their receipts to an EAP for “health costs”. Julie and Gail are not registered Psychologists and most clients find that Parenting Power coaching is not covered under health benefits. We encourage you to consult your individual health benefit information to determine the answer to this question.
I have been court-ordered to receive parenting coaching – do you provide this type of coaching?
We do provide this coaching. We also provide a letter from on Parenting Power letterhead, documenting the topics we have covered. Please contact us via email or phone for more information.
How long are your coaching sessions?
Sessions can range from 15 minutes to 2 hours long depending on the needs and availability of the client.
I live outside of Canada, can I still get parenting coaching from your coaches?
Parenting Power has worked with clients in the USA, England, Australia and Indonesia. Coaching can be done via email, Skype or telephone. Coaching can also be done in French.
