Providing  a safe environment for families and those in close relationships to begin the repair process.

Are you struggling in your home environment?

Are the everyday stressors and/or frequent conflict getting you and the family down?

Are you finding it challenging navigating the different stages of family life and/or being on the same team with parenting?

Family therapy or family counselling is a form of psychotherapy designed to help families and those in close relationships to better understand and address issues that cause distress or conflict. For example, major life changes, loss of a loved one, or mental health problems. Family Therapy can also assist with your daily challenges and/or environment.

 

Families are invariably the source of love, support and encouragement. But sometimes life events or opposing personality types get in the way and lead to heightened stress and/or additional pressures. Sometimes this can be difficult to navigate on their own. That’s where we come in. We help facilitate the differences within the family. Each member will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about the issue, and their hopes for change and/or ideal outcome.

 

Family therapy is about relationships and the patterns that develop within them that may lead families to struggle. We help work through those challenges and observe patterns of interaction between family members, including those that are healthy and productive, and those that are “toxic” or not so helpful. Our job is to help you change those patterns, so you can create the family environment that works for you, and leaves you feeling closer and more connected as a whole.

 

Having all members of the family present for therapy is ideal. However, when that is not possible or a family member is unavailable, we can create a plan that best suits and accommodates the family and/or situation.  There are various ways to support a family with therapy.

 

Through family therapy, we can:

  • Learn new and more positive ways of communication
  • Develop greater understanding and empathy for each other
  • Assist with solving family problems
  • Bring families closer and more connected
  • Build appreciation and respect for each other
  • Repair connections and strengthen relationships
  • Learn new skills and ways to manage stress and anger
  • Strengthen values and create healthy boundaries
  • Create a more supportive and caring environment
  • Develop a team approach to managing stressors
  • Reduce frustrations, misunderstandings and conflict
  • Help each member cope better overall

 

With family therapy, we provide support and tools to help you find your way back to a stronger family relationship with healthier ways to cope in the future.

 

Family counselling is often useful in helping families cope with these difficult and often evolving situations to help improve their relationships and maintain connections.
