Circle of Security

Circle of Security is a program designed for parents and carers of children aged 0-12 years who want to strengthen the bonds with their children and would like support to help their children to build secure relationships.

Who is it for?

Circle of Security is an eight week program designed for parents and carers of children aged 0-12 years who would like support to help their children to build secure relationships.

What will it be like?

It is common for people to experience some initial anxiety over the prospect of participating in a group, and don’t know what to expect.  Being in a group offers a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others experiencing similar challenges. Group participants say they feel less alone, isolated and judged, and that groups help in finding new solutions to dilemmas or problems.

Our groups typically have 8-12 participants. The group facilitators provide information, create discussion, allow for self-reflection, goal setting and learning new skills. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. Participating in a group program is an effective way to gain the confidence to turn negative habits and cycles into positive ones, manage strong emotions constructively and create the future you want.

Key outcomes

  • Clarify your problems.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.

How can it help me?

During this 8-session program, parents are encouraged to look beyond their children’s behaviour and identify and respond to their emotional needs to help prevent issues in the family. Through this course, parents and carers will gain a new understanding of how they can strengthen the bonds with their children, in turn helping them to feel secure.

This programs help children experience:

  • Greater self-esteem
  • Better relationships with parents and peers
  • Enhanced school readiness
  • An increased capacity to handle emotions.
