Couple Counselling/Coaching and Family Mediation Specialist

In K1S 3X1 - Nearby to Gloucester.

Usually a client's challenges are directly related to their position in their family constellation. Particularly in dysfunctional familes certain members are relegated to restrictive roles and behaviours. For example, the one with a temper, the hider, the denier, the scape-goat, etc. It is sometimes imperative to see the whole family in one or more sessions to truly identify the malfunction and to treat this particular family member. When the therapist is imbedded right in the family observing the "family dance" then the chances are vastly improved that the therapist can identify the family perturbance and empower the family to implement more successful dynamics.

When somebody has a developmental, physical, emotional, cognitive or behavioural disability, the entire family is affected: caregiver burnout, siblings feel stigma about their sibling, sibling to sibling relationships are altered, couples have less time together, holidays are delayed, and crisis sometimes happen. I can help siblings explore their feelings about their sibling in a safe and nonjudgmental space, develop ways to cope with their sibling's special needs, and develop individual wellness plans. I can help families develop family wellness plans, resolve conflicts in a safe and mutually respectful manner, and foster a sense of collaboration and togetherness within the family unit.

Families have unique dynamics and sometimes those can be complicated. However, all families as different as they may be, all have something in common, the desire to live in harmony with one another. I specialize on helping families or couples, get to the core of what is keeping them in conflict and most importantly, I specialize on facilitating transformation for each individual so that they can free themselves from those walls or blocks and move forward to a healthier and more united family dynamics.

Registered Clinical Social Worker, Psychotherapist: Individual, Marriage & Family therapist

In K2H 8R2 - Nearby to Gloucester.

I believe that families are resilient, thus, in family therapy, I provide support to the family to help every member of the family to work together so as to resolve conflicts and improve family interactions. A family is a team and if one person on the team is affected by a mental health condition, a substance use disorder, a physical health condition, crisis or any other unfavorable situation, all the family members are affected. Therefore, in family therapy I support the family to rebuild their strength, to find a solution to what brought them to therapy and to resolve the issues in the best possible manner.

Often people experience difficulties with their family of origin. These difficulties can become hurts and wounds, and often experienced (or triggered) throughout one's whole lifetime. Counselling can help individuals understand these wounds, and how they currently play out in life. It can be beneficial to have all family members in the therapy sessions. Just as these wounds were created in early family interactions, they can be healed when explored within the family system in the safe environment of the counselling room.

Family therapy tends to be short-term treatment, usually several months in length, with a focus on resolving specific problems such as eating disorders, difficulties with school, or adjustments to bereavement, or geographical relocation. In family therapy sessions, all members of the family and the therapist are present at most sessions. The therapists seek to analyze the process of family interaction and communication as a whole; they do not take sides with specific members. They may make occasional comments or remarks intended to help family members become more conscious of patterns or structures that had been previously taken for granted.

Registered Social Worker

I support one individual adult in a problematic family unit and do not communicate with other members of the family directly unless I have explicit permission to do so. This approach is especially helpful when there may be emotional, verbal, or more obvious forms of abuse taking place within a family unit. I specialize in helping the individual to define what they want for themselves and the family and to implement action steps in order to achieve his/her goals.

They dynamics and complexity of family therapy is best with the model of co-therapy where two counsellors are involved; one with parent(s) and one with other family member(s). Understanding how each member fits within the family system and how the family system operates as a whole is fundamental to relationship repair. Many times these dynamics are further complicated by a blended family situation, which has it's own stressors.

Families often need support around issues including grief and loss, family break-up, life transitions, substance use, illness, parent-teen conflict, communication, among other issues. I work with families to help them to shift patterns that are leading to conflict and are challenging the closeness of the relationships. My aim is to support families to strengthen their bonds and to transform their relationships. I work with families of all ages including young children as well as adult children.

Online Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Family therapy is a process for everyone to feel heard, understood and that their needs matter. From the youngest to the eldest all our needs matter. Through a process of growing empathy for each other, we can explore creative ways where everyone can get their needs met and everyone can have space to be themselves. Sometimes we all get confused about what we are really wanting. So often conflict and misunderstandings create isolation in even the most loving families. Our work together is to make the time and space to understand each other and find the way back from conflict to connection.

Understanding the dynamic that exists between family members in the family system is a very important first step for helping familiesa achieve their therapeutic goals. Elim counsellors have done advanced studies in Family Systems Theory and are able to identify dynamics between family members and guide family members to conclusions that are necessary if unwanted dynamics are to be changed. By using this approach, family members are able to move away from unhealthy patterns of blaming each other and become more focus on changing unwanted dynamics.
