Art Therapist and Counsellor

In L9C 7N4 - Nearby to Alberton.

Through a combination of Family Systems techniques, therapeutic art making, and talking therapy, I help families build communication, become aware of their habits and ways of interacting, identify problems, and come up with solutions for the best way to solve or manage these problems. I help families become a more open and cohesive unit by helping them become more aware of the ways that they interact with each other, and helping them resolve conflicts and anxieties. I help families strengthen their relationships through honesty and open communication, so that they can overcome conflicts together.

Families don't have to be perfect but when a family functions well, parents and children fulfill their roles, enjoy their life together and develop in a healthy way. A healthy family means that all of the members are involved, children are empowered and self esteem develops. As a therapist, I can assess family issues, direct you in appropriate roles and responsibilities and help you communicate more effectively.

Families are immersed in issues and transformative experiences that give rise to personal stories that shape the identity of each member within it and the group as a whole. Although the issues may be diverse, opportunity exists to construct new narratives capable of not only resolving them, but producing new changes, directions, and purpose in life. As a practitioner of narrative therapy, a therapy often used with families to reauthor dominant stories upheld through an integration of new perspectives, it is my pleasure to be able to collaborate in assisting with the first steps towards this.

Family therapy can feel really complicated when you are immersed in the chaos and the crisis of the moment. I did not come from a squeacky clean background but a family full of chaos and fighting. Unfortunately we didn't understand how to fight nicely! I had to learn that much later in life while repairing my own marriage and family! Understanding the academic side of the dysfunction of my family through experience has helped assist others mend their own families.

In N1R 1W8 - Nearby to Alberton.

Sherry enjoys helping families understand one another and implement changes that will improve the family dynamics. She meets with the individuals who are part of the family system, listens to their issues and concerns, and then brings everyone together to discuss the issues and, when needed, develop a plan. When the group meeting takes place, she ensures that everyone is emotionally safe by establishing 'guidelines for respectful discussion'.

Conflict in families is a normal part of our life but situations can arise which make navigating the road of life difficult. Experiencing parent/teen difficulties? Teens have a developmental task of separating from their parents, and life at this stage can produce conflict. This does not take away from the fact that good parents are the key to producing resilient teens. Perhaps conflict is due to different parenting styles in a blended family. There are many factors which go into making a happy stress free home. Seeking help in a safe and caring environment is sometimes needed to achieve this goal.

Licensed Therapist

In L9C 7N4 - Nearby to Alberton.

For over 10 years, my approach is very much client-centred, drawing from both Family Systems and Solution-Focused theories. I also use psychoeducation and Play Therapy in sessions. I have found these approaches widely accepted by previous clients who seem to want to gain understanding as to why things were occurring in their relationships, but also quickly wanted to press on towards practical solutions.

Family Therapy at Growth Counselling Services provides all members of the family unit with a comfortable and safe environment that allows each member to express their perspectives and concerns free of judgment. Together, we will rediscover your families inner strengths and potential for positive change as individuals, and as a family unit. Call today.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

Most family therapists inadvertently create more chaos through their well-intentioned efforts to assist a family move through a change process. Why? Brains are inherently deregulated (all of us, may I add) and most talking and dialoguing misses brain-centric problems that need more intensive help. Many times the emotional trauma created by years of solving problems ineffectively can wreak havoc on the brain's parasympathetic nervous system, not ever giving the family a break from flight or fight thinking.

Sometimes the difficulties occurring in a family are systemic - which means that there is not really a 'problem person' but a family interaction malfunction. In family counselling, it is understood that everyone in the family impacts and affects everyone else and the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. It is also understood that the way to 'fix' a family problem is not by simply changing specific behaviours, but by changing the structure of the family. This can be a very important process for the many different types of families that we have in our society.

A family is a system. Like any system it functions best when everything is in sync, and can be a very challenging place to be when things are out of sync. Navigating this system has become much more complicated over the years as both parents are often far more involved in parenting, families are blending, and adult children are living at home. Regardless of the stage, often families can benefit by learning ways to hear and respond to each other; resolve conflict and differences from a place of respect and healthy communication.

For me, Family Therapy is distinctly different from any other form of therapy, as there are many stories to tell and many points of view to be shared. Because of my experience as a therapist and a parent, I understand how difficult it can be when the family unit is not functioning the way everyone wants it to. As a trained and experienced therapist, I can ensure that all of your family members feel heard and understood, and are willing to work together to help everyone reconnect.
