Event description


Free Workshop

Ground Control to My Tween/Teen:

I Don’t Know What Planet You are on Any More.”

Decode your Child’s Behaviour and Get Closer to Your Child

  • Do you feel worn out by trying to figure out what is happening in your child’s head?

  • Are you worried about the sudden changes in your child’s mood?

  • You might be perplexed about how fragile your child’s sense of self is - how they can upset by something a peer says in a millisecond?

Adolescence is a time dramatic physical, psychological and social changes. It is a time of discovery, a time of separation, a time of becoming more independent from parents and becoming intensely dependant on the peer group. It is a time of trying new identities. It can be a time of endless emotional storms. Teens often feel utterly lost.

If some of the above experiences sound familiar, this workshop could be just what you need.

This workshop will:

  • Dispel the top 3 common myths about adolescence that cause parents to misunderstand their teen’s unusual, but normal behaviors during adolescence.

  • Show how changes in neurological developmental affect the adolescent’s thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

  • Uncover the purpose of adolescent brain changes, which prepare children for adult life.

  • Discover what to do about these normal changes in the adolescent brain, so you can better connect to your child and better navigate the storm of adolescence.

About the Presenter

Ranka Joyce is an experienced relationship counsellor, Parent Effectiveness Training and Bringing Baby Home facilitator who works with parents who are struggling with their children. She also offers talks and courses for parents. Ranka's focus is on helping parents build strong connections with their children for now and for the future.

Ranka is passionate about assisting parents to raise resilient, compassionate and responsible children who successfully contribute to their community.

She is a mother of two teenage girls and has graduated from supporting her older daughter through the yr 12.

She is also passionate about helping her clients create healthy, loving and fulfilling relationships and lives. She has learned, from her 25yr relationship with her husband and her 2 teenage daughters that no relationship is immune to conflict and disconnection at some point on its journey, and that relationship can be wonderful vehicles for healing.

Ranka believes that: “For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.” Rainer Maria Rilke

Ranka is a member of the Australian Counsellors Association and holds a Masters in Counselling degree from Murdoch University. Ranka is tri-lingual, offering her counselling services in English, Croatian and Italian in her private practice in Subiaco.

Here's what past participants have said about this free workshop:

"Ranka is very open, grounded, engaged and her message is very clear. This workshop opened my eyes to my failings, rather than blaming my children.”

“Ranka is real, engaging and engages with the group really well. It was great to have a refresher on how the brain works and how important is to self reflect, instead of just react.”

"Ranka is a wonderful, down to earth presenter! It was really good to be reminded of parenting strategies.”

“Ranka is lovely, calm and warm. This workshop was very informative and thought provoking, it taught me to listen without judgement and self-reflect.”
