What is Family Therapy?
Child & Family Therapy helps people in close relationships to help each other. It enables families to understand major life transitions such as becoming new parents and the change in relationships they can bring about.
Our service supports you and your family with problem-solving the challenges that life can throw at us with the aim to make you and your family unit healthier and happier. Family Therapy provides you with the ability to cope with the issue at hand and the skills to cope in the future.
We cover a multitude of areas from toddler behavior issues such as temper tantrums, sleep issues, and toddler taming through to providing support with Autism, PPD & ADHD.
Families seek out support for a variety of reasons and no two families are the same. Some concerns that can trigger the need for therapy are:
- Changes in a child’s temperament
- Behavioural concerns
- Meeting your child’s developmental needs
- Parenting conflicts
- Mental health symptoms
- School challenges
- Changes in a family dynamic
- Toddler sleep issues
- Marital strain
- Adjustment to being a larger family unit when a new baby arrives
We use a collection of therapies in our work with our families including dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and solution-focused therapy. Utilizing this mixture of therapies combined with our ability to understand and support families allows us to provide a holistic approach in all our work. We believe that all families have the power to change and this belief guides every step of treatment. Our families walk away feeling supported and recognize their strengths as a family, leaving the family feeling stronger and more empowered to face challenges that come their way.
