Parent/Carer Support from Compass Be

The Triple P – Positive Parenting Program is one of the most effective evidence-based parenting programs in the world, backed up by more than 35 years of ongoing research.

We provide a selection of workshops and resources specifically for parents/carers to ensure you get the right support. These include;

  • Triple P programme
  • Silvercloud – a free online support service
  • The Climb – a support group for parent/carers to meet face to face
  • Workshops – provides low level awareness around mental health difficulties that children are struggling with

Triple P Programme

Triple P gives parents practical strategies that are really simple to adapt to help them build strong, healthy relationships and allowing them to confidently manage their children’s behaviour and prevent problems developing.

The Triple P programme that Compass Be offers is

  • Fear-less Triple P – Help them break free from anxiety

How fearless Triple-P programme can help parents

  • Become the best possible role models for children learning to manage their anxiety.
  • Support their children to become more emotionally resilient and better able to express and manage uncomfortable or difficult emotions.
  • Develop a toolbox of strategies for helping children manage their anxiety more effectively.
  • Review and refine how they respond to their child’s anxiety to build their child’s emotional resilience.

Ultimately, the programme supports parents in applying positive parenting and anxiety management skills with more confidence.

Parents are encouraged to use strategies with each child in the family, not just the one about whom they have the most concerns. As a result, the whole family are better able to manage anxiety provoking situations and experience less anxiety.

Job title: Family Practitioner

Hi! My name is Emily, and I am a Family Practitioner here at Compass Be. My role at Compass is supporting parents & carers with low level emotional and mental health needs that are impacting on their child/young person’s wellbeing.

I have supported families experiencing domestic abuse, alcohol & substance misuse, mental health conditions, children & young people with additional needs and finding the appropriate support for the families I worked with. I love working with adults & children and really listen to what support they would like to receive and deliver this to improve everyone’s mental wellbeing.
