Looking for solutions?
Dreaming of relaxed mealtimes? Bedtimes without a struggle? No more fights over screentime? It's possible!
You're probably doing fine most of the times. But there are certain routines that you find hard to deal with. Or there might be certain behaviours of your child that are a struggle. Your child might be struggling in school. You might want to help your child but you don't know how to. If you can relate to this, then Parenting Consultancy is what you're looking for!
I'm Carine Kielstra and I'm a child and family psychologist. My approach to parenting is grounded in the latest research on child development and behaviour and is designed to help parents develop positive, effective communication and discipline strategies that promote healthy emotional and social development. Every family is unique and I work closely with parents to create a customized plan that meets your specific needs and goals.
Whether you're struggling with tantrums and behaviour problems, or simply want to strengthen your relationship with your child, I can provide the support and guidance you need to achieve your parenting goals.
I work online, at your home, in my practice or at the International School of Amsterdam. I support your child in school, in the classroom, during recess and in individual sessions and I also work with you as parents. You as parents are the biggest change agents for your child and you have a long-lasting and sustainable influence on your child's development.
The most effective way to change your child's behavior is if parents, teachers and therapists work together and apply the same strategies for change. This creates a predictable, structured and consistent environment for children, which helps them to thrive!
