The focus of family therapy is to help family members work through problems, illness and relationship difficulties to create change collaboratively.Family Psychotherapy
Every relationship, whether a marriage, a partnership, whether gay or straight, can have issues and sometimes you need a little help.Couples Psychotherapy
A session lasts 50 min approx. The sessions are confidential (unless the therapist has concern for your, or another person’s safety). It is helpful (but not mandatory) for the whole family to attend at least the first session. Parts of families may also attend sessions i.e. Mother & daughter. There is a focus on working as a family group to manage problems; this approach generally brings about more enduring change. Tasks to do between sessions are quite common. Problems are worked on within the context of family relationships.
Problems I work with: negotiating major life cycle events i.e. Separation & Divorce, building new family relationships, bereavement, mental health issues effecting parents or children, emotional & behavioral difficulties affecting children, & adolescents, issues concerning adolescence, anxiety, depression, school attendance problems, parenting issues, behavioral problems, eating disorders.
