Family therapy helps families resolve issues and conflicts which can arise within a family. By creating a safe, compassionate and collaborative space family members can begin to talk together and to listen to each other so that issues can be talked about openly and constructively.
The family can begin to understand what created the problems and work towards collaboratively creating new ways of communicating and living together as a family. Issues that families often experience include, relationship issues, parenting difficulties, life-cycle changes, grief/loss, eating disorders, addiction issues.
I engage with all family members who are affected by the problem. Who attends sessions may vary, depending on the needs of the family at that time. Some sessions may be with individual family members, whilst others may be with all family members or some family members, as appropriate.
