Knowing the family dynamics is very important in Family Therapy. With this knowledge, I am able to point out to the family members how they are relating to each other. If there are dysfunctions in those relationships, I would want to address the root causes of the dysfunctions which could be their thoughts about themselves and the other family members. Once those irrational thoughts are addressed, then we can work on how each member can be relevant to each other and function as a family unit that works for all.

Doing family therapy allows each member's voice to be heard and counted. Everyone participating is permitted to share their own personal feelings unique perspective, express what is needed or necessary to be said, even to the extent of challenging status quo in the family. Everyone's input and voice are considered to be equals no matter the age or status held in the family. The outcome of family therapy can be rewarding enough for blind spots to be highlighted and greater insights recognized like never before. More than anything it is participating as an important contributor to a much healthier family dynamic.

Family is our most valuable asset. We love them, want to impress them and seek their approval. Yet, it is with our family that we get disappointed and fight with. We end up in a spiral of hurt and disappointment that feels hard to get out of. I help families communicate how important they are to each other, give a voice to each family member and provide tools to communicate their emotions and emotional injuries. Providing harmony to the family helps heal so much more.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist, Ontario

124 O'Connor St, Suite 503, Ottawa, Ontario

I meet with families in "dyads" which means two people at a time, and may also meet members individually because I find this the safest and most effective way to rebuild relationships. For instance if there is conflict between parents and adolescent, I usually would meet with all three first to get a sense of the issues. This session needs to be carefully managed so it is not a blaming session. Subsequently I might meet with the adolescent individually Then have meetings with adolescent and each parent, as well as both parents together focus on those relationships. The goal is to identify and arrest negative cycles, and power struggles and start to address issues in a new way.

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.

Family Therapist

Gill Reilly, MSW, RSW, RMFT

Registered Marriage and family Therapist, Certified EMDR

When working with families I have found that understanding how that particular family 'system' works is most important. Each family is unique with its own strengths and weakness. I also bring my extensive training in Attachment Theory to understand how each family member connects to the others. Helping each member be 'heard' and respected by the others goes a long way towards resolving issues within the family.

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.

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.

Family relationships can be some of the strongest connections we experience in our lifetime; however, when these relationships undergo strain, we can be left feeling disconnected and distressed. Family Counselling can allow some or all family members to begin exploring their challenges together, and ultimately strengthen the family bond by allowing each member to feel heard and understood in a safe, unbiased environment.

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.
