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.

All families are the same and all families are different. Therapy is based on the family as an organised social unit that goes through phases of gradual but emotionally-charged change. Roles and functions often collide with personal needs and changing individual needs and hormonal behaviours that will clash with parenting styles triggering power struggles. Family dynamics must find a way to balance the conflicting childrens' needs to assert distinct identities while integrating conflicting parental values. Family therapy is difficult but growth-inducing for all but I find it helpful to see individuals separately for them to express ideas and feelings freely as it helps with communication.

Family Therapy involved treating the whole family system, rather than just an individual. It can be one of the more efficient forms of therapy, but also very challenging allowing each person in the family to have a voice. Getting family members to come is a big step. Family therapy helps develop new rules, attitudes, feelings and relationship patterns that work more effectively.

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.

Therapy can provide a safe environment for families that seek to repair their relationships. The problems generally stem from a much earlier time, when it was hard for family members to understand the nature of their conflict. Each person often has felt hurt and misunderstood, and these feelings have perpetuated over time. My approach is to encourage dialogue between them to help them understand the dynamics that have prevented a fulfilling relationship. I also try to establish the positive intentions of the work they are about to do. Therapy is intended to give them insight into what went wrong and how to repair the relationship while working through the difficult feelings and mistrust.

Family therapy can look very different depending on who attends. Some family therapy may involve adult family members struggling with a conflict, sometimes it involves parents and their young children or teens. In Family Therapy treatment is dependent on the goal, but typically involves improving communication, helping family members to listen to each other, help them to develop strategies for coping with conflict and/or differences, learn to get support from one another, improve closeness between family members, accept those elements that cannot change, identify their role within the family (and make changes if desired) and shift their perceptions of each other.

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.
