In T2S 3C2 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Registered Psychologist, Certified Diplomate of Sex Therapy

In T1Y 1W3 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

Cory has had over 15 years of practice doing family therapy using many different models including systemic theory, structural theory and strategic models... To name only a few. Not only has Cory been working with families for an extensive period of time but has been able to apply many of these skills to his own family/children. Cory's general belief is that although the complete family is preferred, family therapy can be done with only one or two individuals as long as we can impact change from just one source.

Family counseling is a profound experience in which predictable behavior patterns are disrupted, each person is given a voice, and balance of power is realigned. All family members are brought into goal making processes and members hold each other accountable to the desired changes. The goal is to create an environment in which differences can be acknowledged and integrated most effectively.

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.

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."

Registered Psychologist

In T2M 3N4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

Mervin Van der Spuy, DTh-Counselling, BSc-Pharmacy

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Discovery Ridge, Calgary.

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.

People exist in relation and within relationships; change affects everyone and can sometimes be uncomfortable. Where appropriate, I welcome and invite families in to avoid common pitfalls and create better environments of success for therapy. I create a non-judging atmosphere where each persons view is respected and heard. Family members often have great insight and perspective on the problem.

Being in a relationship is not always easy. Couples therapy can help address areas of difficulty such as communication, being able to relate and support one another, intimacy, demands of work and family, and understanding the differences between one another. By learning how to effectively address these areas a relationship or marriage can develop into a secured trust and friendship.

Even when one individual in a family is having trouble, it is important to look at the entire family system the individual came from. By exploring family roles, generational issues and relationship complexities, much can be understood about why a person behaves or thinks as they do. This information can be used to help an entire family get well. We do not exist alone, we are a part of a network of relationships that hold keys into helping us discover who we are and healing.
