Family therapy

Family therapy enables parents and children, or any family member, to meet in a safe, therapeutic and non-judgemental setting to discuss the problems they are facing.

Family therapy aim

Family therapy aims to heal and reveal by permitting and encouraging family members to identify and explore differences or dysfunctional patterns of behaviour, together.

Family therapy benefits

In this kind of therapy, the family therapist acts as a catalyst for family members to air feelings and clarify, express and verbalise their needs within the family structure. Through the support provided by the counsellor, participants become aware of how other members of the family experience situations and develop healthier and more constructive ways of communicating with one another.

Is family therapy right for you?

Family therapy has supported many individuals suffering from the mental health conditions below and their families. NICE guidelines support the use of family therapy as part of the treatment for those suffering with eating disorders so that the family members can begin to accept that their loved one is suffering from the condition and to understand the role they could play in the recovery.

If family therapy doesn’t sound right for you and your family please remember there are other treatments we offer that may be more suitable for you. If you need advice on family therapy or a family therapist we would welcome your call so you feel secure in the decisions you make.
