In Family counselling sessions, each family member’s perspective is heard and validated. Using Choice Theory and Reality Therapy, parents learn to model the behaviours deemed appropriate, and help themselves and their children meet the needs of love and belonging; power; freedom; survival; and fun. Additionally, parents and children learn to use the seven caring habits (supporting, encouraging, listening, trusting, accepting, respecting, and negotiating differences) when communicating with one another in an attempt to bring the family closer.

Families operate in established systems that maintain a positive 'state of being' for some time. However, an established system can also prove ineffective at times. Recognizing 'open' and 'closed' communication systems, established power structures / hierarchies, and long-established modes of communication is often key to improving elements of family functioning.

Parenting is the hardest and most important job anyone can do. Anyone can have a child, but raising an emotionally healthy child is a mystery to many parents. Our children are growing up with high pressure, violence, pop culture that places value on materialism and perfect looks. Our children are suffering from stress, anxiety and depression. We need to provide a safe haven of sanity to nurture our children's self-esteem.

It is important to remember that a family is a system – each interacting part contributes to the function of the whole. Families have a different kind of relationship that makes them unique. I like to focus less on the cause of the family trouble and more on the solutions needed in order to move toward equilibrium in the system. I like to highlight the strengths of the family and find that a solution-focused approach works well.

When families come for counselling, Bev endeavors to create a setting that is mutually respectful for parents and children. Bev will attempt to discern whether to briefly see parents alone and children/teens alone. This can give powerful insights as to what is happening in the family. A family meeting will be conducted and Bev will help each to hear the other. Family will come up with consensus decisions that are satisfying to them. Bev will help teenager to have a voice and help parents to hold their boundaries in respectful ways. Bev will equip parents and families with Adlerian parenting methods so they can continue creating these types of interactions themselves.

When a client comes to us to work through their anxiety, depression, eating disorder, or addiction patterns we know that somewhere out there is at least one person who wants to help if they can. We see this is a powerful opportunity for the whole family to heal and grow. It it key that families understand what is truly impacting all those involved; how each member is seeing the situation and their role in it; and what each person really needs in order to feel safe, loved, and trusting of each other. Regardless of how divided family members may be, if there is a desire to connect and a willingness to take responsibility for their part, healing will happen. We are here to help you.
