Family Therapy

Family life can sometime be difficult especially as a family experiences transitions in life. It is normal to struggle to adjust to normal life transitions though at times the struggle itself can create tension and stress that can feel unsustainable.  We can support you to think together as a family about how you can move beyond the stress and tension to find solutions that work.

How does it work?

My preference is to meet with as many family members as possible in the first meeting so I can speak to everyone about what they think is the problem.  I also use the first meeting to set goals and to think about how you will know our work is helpful.


An important part of family therapy is making sure that all family members are able to voice their thoughts and ideas, in each meeting we will think together about your strengths and the resources that you have in your relationships with each other.  


It is often easy for families to forget or stop noticing what it is they do well and it is often these things that can help a famly build on successes and move towards the relationships they want to have.
