Introduction To Family Coaching Solutions

After years of success working with Father Matters, helping men become better fathers, Jay Harnden has developed Family Coaching Solutions. His passion to bring together parents and children has been the focus of his vision. As a Certified Christian Life Coach, Jay has been helping people get from "where they are" to "where they want to be".

Family Coaching Solutions does just what the name says: Helping families to develop solutions and coaching them into realization. There are so many things going on in today's family that often times conflict will arise simply from lack of communication. Jay has a compassion for people in difficult situations and a talent for helping them to look objectively at what's going on. He brings them through the process of discovery so that they can end up in a healthier place.

"Anxiety in a man's heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad."

-- Proverbs 12:25

How Family Coaching Solutions Can Help You

  • Life Coaching -- I can assist you in moving ahead and building new beginnings for yourself and your family. It's never too late to make the positive decisions that will get you on the road to a new and improved self. Let me help in bringing out the best you have and through compassion, encouragement, and support - see it come to realization.
  • Conflict Resolution -- I have been involved with and have helped many families deal with internal conflict. Often, it's not nearly as "bad as it seems" and can usually be overcome through awareness, creativity, nurturing, and love. Let's talk about what's going on in your world.
  • Mentoring -- Most of my work with Father Matters involved mentoring other men and fathers. I also work with teenage boys who do not have a positive male role model in their lives. We need to come together as men and support and encourage each other emotionally so that we are equipped to deal with the "happenings" of every day life.
  • Relationship/Couples Coaching -- If you're going through a divorce or separation, you need to understand the effect it will have on your children. There are ways for you to get through this process while keeping your child's best interests at heart. I have helped families move forward without going to court and spending thousands of dollars ... let's talk. If you are still in a relationship, I can help you focus on what it is that's good and deal with what it is that's "not so good"... again, communication is the key and I've spent many years learning how to improve it.

I've been doing weekly Father's Support Group meetings since 1997 with Father Matters. Since May of 2007, I've been working with the Foundation of Family Values, (www.fofv.org) facilitating a weekly meeting for dads (view flyer).

I also teach a class for the Foundation called Conscious Parenting (view flyer).
