Family therapy can help you improve troubled relationships with your partner, children or other family members. Some of the many reasons people seek family support include the following:
- In the case of divorce or separation to make sure the child(ren) are given appropriate support as the family navigates changes
- In the case of re-marriage or blending two families so that new, fragile relationships can be supported
- If there is a lot of conflict between parents and/or siblings
- If someone in the family is dealing with a diagnosis related to their physical health or mental health and everyone needs to learn how to process and adapt to potential changes
Whilst many of us think of parents and young children in family counselling, we are able to help parents and their adult children communicate better, grandparents build better relationships with their families and adult siblings learn to communicate better.
The purpose of family counselling is to improve communication skills. provide skills for coping with challenging situations and to offer new insight and understanding.
