SOS Nancy, Family Coaching

Because even the best of parents sometimes need a little support and guidance, families are reaching out more and more towards family coaching, also known as parental coaching.

This service offers personalized coaching in the comfort of your own home. During the meetings, the coach will observe all members in their natural setting, ideally during their most challenging times, and, just as a sports coach would do, he will recommend certain adjustments in the parents` interventions as to maximize the children`s psychoaffective development.

The coach helps all family members better understand each other`s behaviours and fix realistic and attainable goals. Then, by proposing tricks and practical exercises, he will accompany them towards a more peaceful family dynamic.

As we are aware that the most difficult part of this process is maintaining consistency in the interventions, our coaches remain available to offer support to each family for the amount of time needed. A family member may call or write to their coach for advice, or to schedule additional meetings.

What is family coaching or parental coaching?

SOS Nancy is a family coaching service composed of a team of qualified and experienced coaches who offer you a personalized assessment of your family`s needs within the comfort of your own home. During the meetings, the coach will discretely observe all members in their family setting, ideally during their most challenging times, and, just as a sports coach would do, he will recommend certain adjustments in the parents` interventions in order to maximize the children`s psychoaffective development.

The coach helps all family members better understand each other`s behaviours and fix realistic and attainable goals. Then, by proposing tricks and practical exercises, he will accompany them towards a more peaceful family dynamic.

As we are aware that the most difficult part of this process is maintaining consistency in the interventions, our coaches remain available to offer support to each family for the amount of time needed. A family member may call or write to their coach for advice, or to schedule additional meetings.

To summarize, family coaching is:

  • Meetings at the clients` home,
  • One evaluation meeting, where we assess the family`s needs as well as the origin of the difficulties,
  • One or more meetings to build and put into application a concrete action plan,
  • One or more observation meetings and coaching during everyday activities,
  • One coach who remains available for any questions or advice.
