Families and communities
Family therapy aims to help families find new ways to approach challenges.
Our team of experienced family therapists offer families a safe place to find solutions and build stronger relationships. By ‘family’, we mean people in a close or significant relationship with each other. You do not have to be related or in a legally recognised relationship to have family therapy with us.
Who benefits from family therapy?
When one or more people in a family experience difficulties, those around them are usually affected too. Family therapy can benefit individuals and the whole family. It gives an opportunity for all family members to share their thoughts and feelings, and to be part of the solution.
