Family Counsellor

Phyllis Ng, MA, OACCPP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist

32 South Unionville Ave. Suite# 2051, Markham, ON L3R 9S6

Every family deserves to have harmony and respect. When one person is struggling with some issues, it is possible that the whole family suffers as well. I use systemic Family therapy to address people not on individual level but as people in relationship, dealing with the interactions of groups and their interactional patterns and dynamics. I teach communication, conflict resolution and assertiveness skills to help people communicate and problem solve their family issues.

I use techniques and strategies that are grounded in modern science to guide families in managing communication and ways to deal with impasses. Integrating the relationship centred approach into family work I help families restore their confidence, provide new perspective, and help them develop the qualities they need to live authentic and meaningful lives.

A family can be characterized like a web bound together by feelings, customs, beliefs and behaviours. Whatever happens in one part of the web is felt by other parts as a means of balancing things so that the web does not break. When there is stress in this connectivity or there is a break in the family, we may see any part of the family or the entire family in therapy. Participation by all members becomes crucial in determining the whole picture of what is happening. Sometimes, if the therapy is successful in guiding one or two crucial changes in the family's functioning, stress is significantly alleviated restoring the "web" to a healthier balance.

Sometimes it is valuable to have a parent(s) and their teenager together work towards healing the rifts that tear their relationship apart. The same applies to parents and their young adult children. Through the family work people note they are able to understand and get 'heard' by their family members.

My approach to family therapy is to allow all members of the family the same opportunity to be heard in a non-judgmental space. My role is not to take sides or point out fault but to help develop a framework, which will promote healthy communication. We work on "rules of engagement"; finding time to foster a healthy kinship and also help to promote boundaries.

Carrie Fleetwood, M.Ed., MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

6633 Hwy7E, Suite 203 Ashgrove Medical Building, Markham, ON L3P 7P2

'Family' is supposed to be a safe haven, a place that always feels like home. But when there is unresolved conflict and unsatisfying relationships 'family' can feel like anything but! I love to help families (including multi-generational families) be able to communicate and function in healthier ways so that the hurt can stop and love and understanding can be expressed and felt. If you've been thinking about family counselling for a while, don't wait any longer. You'd be surprised at the difference that can be made in a relatively short period of time and how family relationships can heal and grow into safer, more loving places to call 'home'!

A family often changes because of the difficulties one person may be having. Alternatively, the challenges experienced by each family member affects the whole unit. When this happens, family members begin to push themselves apart from everyone else, leaving the family experiencing more conflict and feelings of emptiness. My approach is to bring the family members together and facilitate a respectful dialogue between everyone. Having an opportunity to speak one's mind without feeling judged or criticized can do wonders for increasing understanding amongst family members. It's also an important step for creating change.

Family Counsellor

Marcus Chow, MDiv, RP, RMFT

Registered Psychotherapist

15 Allstate Parkway, Suite 600, Markham, ON L3R 5B4

Healthy relationships within your family offer you the support and energy as you face life's challenges. Sometimes, family members got stuck in negative communications and behaviour patterns, which diminish the bonding among family members. In family counselling, I join with the family, help them unpack their relationship dynamics at home, and support them to seek mutual understanding among themselves. During the journey, I will work closely with the family members as they learn to identify and break their negative communications and behaviour patterns, as well as to create and maintain healthy relationships within the family. Sessions can be conducted in English or Cantonese.

Family Counsellor

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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 Counsellor

Nidhi Gupta, R.I.H.R, Dip. BSc (Hons), RPc

Regd. Psycotherapist: Individuals, Teens, Couples, Families

Within Driving Distance of Markham, ON

I work with the Satir Family Therapy method, in which I teach people how to connect with their higher wisdom. They learn how to identify their own belief structures, coping mechanisms, judgments, emotions, and expectations (their personal iceberg) and see how they have affected their relationships with their spouse and the effect their own family of origin has on their new family. I work with couples to re-establish their strong foundation, whilst working alongside the families, using family mapping, family sculpting and family reconstruction.
