Our Services to P2P Families

Our programs are designed to support the emotional well being of parents, babies and their families. We provide psychological interventions that are based on international best practice guidelines in perinatal and infant mental health.

We partner with families to develop goals for intervention and work out ways to:

  • Help parents to feel emotionally well and develop more confidence in their parenting
  • Build reflective capacity, which we know is crucial for building close and secure attachment relationship between a parent and their baby
  • Support healthy parent-infant relationships that are meaningful and enjoyable through learning parenting skills that promote understanding and knowing how to best respond to the baby’s emotional experiences.
P2P has a team of practitioners and trainees who have skills and expertise in perinatal and infant mental health. Our trainees and staff offer a specialised service that provides triage, assessment and intervention. This includes couple, dyadic/triadic, family and group-based programs.
