Families

Our psychologists can work with your family as a team, providing tools and strategies to help you find tailored solutions for your family’s needs. This form of therapy will enable all family members to feel seen and heard, and to better understand and value each other. In working together your clinician can help to restore trust, self-esteem and strengthen connections between all family members.

 

We have supported families with the following difficulties, but this is not a complete list of why we see our families:

  • Keep families together and reduce conflict
  • Repair family relationships
  • Worried about the wellbeing or safety of a family member
  • Coping with separation, divorce or grief
  • Experiencing behavioural issues or school concerns
  • Collaborative parenting after separation
  • Surviving adolescence
  • Dealing with bullying
  • Making step families work
  • Communicating with kids
  • Parenting solo

What to Expect

Consultations are 80 minutes long. In most cases for Family Therapy the first two appointments will be parent only appointments, this allows for your clinician to take a thorough family history and for you to openly discuss your concerns, plan for therapy, and goals. Your psychologist will discuss any recommendations with you during the first few sessions and give you guidelines on the frequency of appointments, and who should attend, to achieve the most effective and efficient outcomes.
