Parenting patterns that are not working can be repleced with more effective ones. We will provide you with some new tools and help you move toward the closeness you yearn to have with one another.

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.

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

In K2H 8R2 - Nearby to Pontiac.

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.

Registered Psychotherapist; Individual and Family Therapist

In K2K 1L8 - Nearby to Pontiac.

Family therapy uses a specialized approach to bring in one, two or more family members and work together and in a non-blaming way to consider what changes might make the hard things easier. As a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist I have specialized skills and experience to use family therapy approaches geared to each unique family context, that help people use their strengths to support growth and create effective changes in their lives. Counselling may involve directed conversations and specific and creative interventions to explore dynamics and practice more effective relationship and communication skills. Family therapy is generally brief, results-oriented, and cost-effective.

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.
