The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened. At times as parents, we all feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you.

CoS-P is designed for parents of children aged 0-6, and most of the video-based resources are targeted to this age range. However, as our need for secure relationships remains throughout the lifespan, parents of older children also benefit from attending. CoS-P can be complete 1:1, as a couple, or in a small group. Face-to-face delivery is recommended however Samantha can facilitate the course online.
Individual or Couples sessions are 50 minutes long. The cost of individual sessions is $220 per session. Medicare rebates may apply with a valid referral and Mental Health Treatment Plan, or through your Private Health fund.
Group Sessions are offered for a minimum of 6 members. Group sessions are 90 minutes long. The total cost is $800 per member. Medicare (for groups of 6-10 participants only) or private health fund rebates may apply.
NDIS participants may be able to use NDIS funding for CoS-P, depending on whether this course is aligned with plan goals.
Private groups or attendance at parenting groups can be arranged.
