Family Therapy

Counselling can bridge gaps that develop within families.  A counsellor is detached from the emotions that exist and can encourage dialogue in a non judgemental way.  Achievable goals can be set for group members to work towards.  Each family member is given a voice to be heard and listened to.  Individual needs are explored and respected.  Change can happen with the help of a counsellor.

As children become adolescents the family dynamics change and parents have to learn to compromise.  Parents can find it hard to gradually change from having a child/adult relationship to an adult/adult relationship with their children.  Counselling helps to learn new ways of approaching difficult issues and both parties can benefit a great deal.
