riding the roller-coaster programme

The Riding the Roller-Coaster Programme is an opportunity for you as a couple, and a family, to explore how to navigate the journey of parenthood from being a couple to being a family.

"Getting some time to talk about how we are doing as a couple and a family, really helped us to navigate the ups and downs more easily."

The Riding the Roller-Coaster Programme is designed for couples that have just embarked on the journey of parenthood with their first child. The Riding the Roller-Coaster Programme is not couples counseling or therapy, instead it is an opportunity for you as new parents to focus on you; you as individuals, you as a couple, and most of all, you as a parent in your new family

With only six couples per cohort, the Riding the Roller-Coaster Programme includes 2 x 3 hour sessions. During the Programme you will spend time with other new parents to:

  • Reflect on your journey so far
  • Understand and respond better to differences in partner's needs
  • Define the roles you each play in your new family
  • Set the course for continuing your journey into parenthood
Time ....What's Planned

Saturday (1:00pm to 4:00pm)

  • Welcome & introductions
  • Reflecting on the journey so far using the Paradox of Parenting and repeating patterns

Sunday (10:00am to 1:00pm - followed by Sunday Lunch)

  • Learning how to understand and respond to our different needs using FIRO-B*
  • Defining our roles and setting the course for the future
  • Group Sunday Lunch
