Supporting Parents with Intuitive Insights

A desire to simultaneously empower parents and children to have loving, respectful and fun relationships with each other is what inspired Sandra Couts MSN, RN to take the parent coaching course offered by ACPI. All children are different. Growing up in the same family does not guarantee that they will have the same values, interests or needs. This can be a frustrating part of any parents’ life. Comparisons between siblings is common place—not always helpful yet not necessarily harmful. A compassionate intuitive parent coach like Sandra, mentors on unique temperaments and effective communication styles.

Sandra defines parent coaching as the ability to work with parents on the issues at hand to problem solve and find solutions. Her toolbox includes the personal style inventory, the values assessment, intuitive insights, and connection parenting techniques.  Sandra learned how to integrate her values of honoring the uniqueness of the parenting role with understanding the importance of treating children with the loving respect they need and deserve.

In her parent coaching experience, Sandra immediately discovered the important role her training at ACPI and her intuitive insights played in helping a parent in distress about her teenager’s behavior.  The mother and the son were at odds with each other around the issues of free time, getting a job, friends and using drugs. These common adolescent issues were creating obstacles in their ability to talk openly with each other.

 Using her intuitive abilities, Sandra showed this loving mother another perspective on why her son was making the choices he was making. She assisted the mother in finding solutions to interact with her son in ways that he would open up to her. It worked. The doors of communication opened. They were able to establish some agreements that supported this teenager in stepping into adulthood and allowed the mom to have the respectful and loving connection she wanted.

Tips offered by Sandra to encourage others to take advantage of all that ACPI provides in training include the following:
