Families can be a source of support, encouragement and love but sometimes relationships within families are put under strain and family members feel isolated or overlooked.
Reasons for family counselling
Disruption after separation or divorce
Problems with adolescents or older children,
Children leaving home
Counsellors can help members relate to each other’s feelings and then work out the differences. Giving every family member a voice and an opportunity to be heard without fear or favour.
The counsellor can meet the family together and different members separately too. Since the family is a system, change is best facilitated by working with the family as a whole. Neither the individual nor the family is blamed for any problem. Families are helped to recognize factors that contribute to a given problem. They can then jointly participate in finding solutions.
Counselling is a different experience for everyone, and what happens in your sessions will depend very much on what you hope to get out of it, and on the unique needs of your family.
You can expect Family Counselling to help you to build stronger relationships between every member of the family and help you to work together as a team.

Counselling sessions are totally confidential. Our counsellors do not make judgments about who is right or wrong. They don't tell clients what to do or what decisions to make, but rather guide them through a discussion of their feelings, experiences and their options.
