Similar to couples work, family work often involves learning different ways to communicate and understand each other. I approach family counselling by using a lens of compassion and focus on what each family member wants from the unit. By focusing on what family members want we are able to be less problem saturated in sessions while helping family members to develop, deepen and connect with one another.

Many studies, including the famous 75 year Harvard study (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/08/11/how-this-harvard-psycholo_n_3727229.html) have found that the quality of our relationships are by far the most important factor in people's happiness and fulfillment in life. Many families have dysfunctional relationships; It's because they don't know how to talk with each other. I teach communication and problem-solving skills so that families can develop an open line of communication and resolve long standing issues and resentments. At the end of lives, it's the quality of relationships that matter most. No one on their deathbed ever says, "I wish I'd spent more time at the office."

Addressing family dynamics is not an easy matter. This could be a parent / adult-child relationship, sibling relationship or in-law relationship. If a relationship in your life is causing you a lot of stress, counselling might be helpful even if only one party is attending.

If you or a loved one are struggling with a diagnosed mental health condition such as anxiety, bi-polar disorder or depression, it is probably putting the whole family under pressure. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside and help families understand and cope as a unit. Often family members are unsure how to deal with their family member’s treatment needs; sometimes they place pressure on them to stop or start medication; other times they struggle to keep their loved one compliant in taking the medication. A family session with Dr Mervin will not only inform on these matters, but will also help you manage the family dynamics surrounding it.

I help mothers and fathers to parent children to be physically and emotionally healthy, do well academically, have good social skills and self-esteem, be well behaved, and grow up to have healthy relationships. The focus in counselling is on the parent-child relationship. Issues that make parenting challenging are also addressed such as a parent’s own unmet emotional needs, stress, fatigue, feelings of guilt, a difficult birth experience, mental health issues, relationship difficulties, conflicts with extended family, or history of abuse. Whether your child is a newborn or a teenager, I offer help that is practical and respectful of the needs of the parent and child.

Family therapy is not only about kids or teenagers. Adult families could use help too! Dealing with significant life stresses or mental illness could affect the entire family. Or you may want to address long-standing tensions, or handle a family business where each generation sees things differently. Whatever it is, I aim to (1) help you understand each other and the patterns you may be stuck in, (2) find common goals, (3) build on your strengths, and (4) improve your skills. I work online, and research on online therapy for children is very limited. So my family therapy is for adults only.

Families are the foundations from which individuals launch their lives, and the safe haven in which we live our lives. Sometimes, families get a bit off-track or forget the gentle arts of forgiveness and positive regard for each other. The ways in which we communicate both our needs and our caring impact our experience of family. I can help you improve communication, learn effective and respectful ways to resolve conflict, and strengthen connections inside your family.

The success or failure of the attachment bond formed with our primary caregivers affects us as adults. People who grow up believing their needs will be met are resilient and able to remain focused, relaxed, and creative in challenging situations. People who grow up without such expectations will fear conflict, and will not trust themselves in conflict situations. Relational therapy and attachment theory informs my work in family therapy. I believe that a healthy family life involves an open and reciprocal sharing of affection, feelings, and love. By bringing genuine warmth, caring and compassion to the therapeutic relationship, I model a core belief of mine that caring and acceptance are key ele....

Entering into family therapy means that you recognize that there is an interaction between family members that leads to conflict and discourse. I have been working with families in high conflict for 25 years and understand that it is easy to feel like you have tried everything to shift the interactions in your family. I have specific strategies to target the dysfunctional patters and. get your family focused in a new direction.

There are a number of unique struggles that are experienced in families. Handling difficult parenting issues can involve couples learning to work together in finding effective and supportive methods to address their children's behavior. It is very difficult for a parent to provide everything a child needs especially in school and peer situations that have many differences in pressures and communication devices that are quite new. Helping parents learn about and overcome their own deficits can also help the relationships with their spouse and children flourish and can help parents to support their children with many concerns that might have brought them into therapy in the first place.

I believe strongly that human beings are naturally designed to form close connections with others. Emotional difficulties can often be linked back to challenging relationships with those closest to us. I help to facilitate discussions that support individuals to appropriately deal with the issues that are negatively impacting the family's functioning. By examining how the family as a whole interacts and understanding those problematic communication patterns, change can be fostered. Through an open and supportive counselling environment, family members develop compassion and connectedness that allows for the healing of past pain.
