Family Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that is often sought by groups of people in a close relationship who are experiencing distress or conflict in their relationships and interactions. Various concerns or difficulties may lead people to Family Therapy. Some of the common problems that are presented to us in Family Therapy are:
- Parent conflict and concerns around children’s behaviour
- Complications in a family member’s physical health or mental health
- Adjustment to a family member entering or leaving the home (birth of a child, fostering, adoption, adult children who move out of the parental home)
- Domestic violence
- Unexpected changes or traumatic events that impact the family
In Family Therapy, we aim to support family members with exploring different experiences and views, learning about one another’s needs, building on resources, and making beneficial and sustainable changes in the members’ lives and relationships. We highly value being sensitive to diverse family forms and relationships, beliefs and cultures.
