Circle of Security Parenting Group





Our Circle of Security® Parenting™ Group is starting on the 12th February – Monday evenings (5:30pm to 7:00pm) at our Manning clinic. Over 7 weeks, caregivers are guided through the program by a Senior Occupational Therapist who is a trained Circle of Security® facilitator; and also supported by a second Occupational Therapist for each session.

The program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.  Objectives include:

  • Understand your child’s emotional world by learning to read the emotional needs
  • Support your child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
  • Enhance the development of your child’s self esteem
  • Honor your innate wisdom and desire for your child to be secure

The group costs $55 per session per parent, with more than 50% reduction in the fee for the second parent, so $80 per night per couple. We understand that not all parents are a couple, and individuals are invited to attend, as well as separated parents or caregivers. Parents are encouraged to speak with their GP about a mental health plan referral for themselves, as this will provide for a Medicare rebate to assist with costs for each session. These referrals are at the discretion of your GP. Private health insurance may also assist, so please check with your fund if you have this cover.

Please contact Lisa Adeney on or speak with your therapist to confirm your place.
