Family
Counselling

Family Therapy is a form of group therapy that addresses the behaviours of all family members and how they affect not only individual family members but also relationships among family members and the family as a whole.

Parent and Family Support

Family Therapy

Parents supporting children:

Parents encounter challenges as their children grow and develop, and many families struggle to find ways to help their children struggling with mental illness, neurodivergence or trauma.
Routines, family rules and boundaries help daily family life run smoothly; however, some families need assistance creating unique strategies that cater to their family and home environment.

Our experienced Family Therapists will assist you in creating a supportive environment at home and finding the most effective way to support your family. 

 

Diagnosis Counselling
A diagnosis is often life-changing and impacts people's ability to support their family members. Our experienced counsellors can assist you in understanding what the diagnosis means for you and how you can help those that matter most to you. Our therapists will support you whether you or a loved one has been diagnosed.
 
Family Conflict:

Family dynamics are complex, especially when combining a range of challenges for the family unit, and it becomes more complicated when extended family becomes involved. Even if only two people conflict, the entire family can be affected.

 

While therapists take different approaches to dealing with family conflict, we work with the family to determine a shared goal and structure the therapeutic support with that goal in mind.

 

Family Therapy supports families who are dealing with:

  • Grief and loss

  • Family Conflict

  • Abuse and Family Domestic Violence

  • Trauma

  • Build on communication

  • Understand each other

  • Dealing with individual issues

Learning supportive strategies to create a safe environment at home may include:

  • Model healthy coping skills.

  • Model healthy emotional regulation.

  • Watch for behaviour changes.

  • Keep communication open and honest.

  • Create an emotionally safe environment at home.

  • Listen without judgement

  • Positive practices

  • Create a routine and set clear boundaries at home.

  • Let children know they are loved and supported.

  • Provide positive feedback and encouragement.

  • Encourage joyful movements.

  • When and how to use active ignoring.
