I have been a family counsellor for 25 yrs. I specialize in child/youth family counselling. Currently, I facilitate groups for youth that struggle with substance abuse and managing anger. My job in counsellling is to help family members identify difficulties they are experiencing and work toward resolving the underlying issues. Therapy teaches families to communicate more effectively. It's an opportunity to articulate needs, fears and find new ways to resolve anger and conflict. Family members will explore many areas such as unhealthy family patterns, boundaries, honesty, accountability and ways to bulid more closeness/connection.

Do you ever look back and think that the family you grew up with was so emotionally healthy and happy that you want your family to be just like them? If you started laughing, so did everyone else! Dysfunctional families are normal because nobody is perfect. However, just because it is normal, doesn't mean you should have to struggle alone. With my assistance I can help your family to navigate through difficult times to find peace, healing and harmonious living.

Family counselling involves meeting with the entire family to share your individual and collective struggles and strengths. Through positive communication and structured techniques, each family member will share their perspectives, ideas, hopes and needs and be listened to with understanding and respect. Families can often get caught up in patterns of communication that result in repeated conflict and disconnection. Family counselling will help you to recognize these patterns and create new ways of relating that supports relationship building and communication. All families face challenges and children can be particularly sensitive to them. Some children will “act out” their distress through challenging behaviors.

Children and adolescents successfully meet most of the challenges posed by the various stages of their development. They also have incredible resiliency in the face of challenging environments and life issues. At the same time they are, however, very aware and sensitive to the stress in family life and their environments. When having difficulty coping, adolescent distress can manifest itself through difficulties in learning, relationships and in emotional & behavioural development. Children have less experiences, fewer coping skills and less control over their environment. They also have difficulty describing emotional problems. Distress can manifest in such ways as irritability, sleeping or eati....

In V2A 5B1 - Nearby to Summerland.

I approach family therapy from a Family Systems approach, and seek to assist family members towards better understanding and acceptance of those they share their home/life with. We cannot choose family, so learning how to live or be related to someone that we may not get along with or understand can be a difficult road to maneuver. I do not operate on the assumption that we need to keep toxic family members in our lives, and sometimes severing ties is what is best for the individual, and the system.

Family issues through-out the lifespan, including adjusting to parenting, parenting styles, single parenting, divorce, parent alienation, adoption, step parenting or blended families even empty nest for any family concern Sheila can provide an objective perspective to assist and support in resolving issues. Genograms, family sytems theory and emotion focused family therapy are all effective tools that can support families facing challenges. Family issues hit close to home and sometimes a rational outsider is necessary to bring an alternative fresh perspective.

Individuals do not exist outside of various “systems”, such as family, work/school and other interpersonal relationships. Fiona believes individuals and their families possess the necessary resources within themselves to be healthy and competent, therefore it is important to capitalize on the strengths inherent within family systems, where counselling hopes to support the family in developing meaningful and relevant goals, and fostering connection.

Family systems issues can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing family issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when family challenges are present as they impact the very mechanisms we use to cope.
