Issues that can be helped with Family/Systemic Psychotherapy:
“Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding”
Albert Einstein, Physicist & Philosopher
Family therapy enables family members, couples, children, etc to express and explore any difficult thoughts and emotions. The counsellor works at enabling each family member to share their experiences and views in a safe, non-judgemental environment, with the aim of all members gaining greater understanding, appreciation and collaboration. By each member in the family being given the time to openly express their feelings and experiences and with the aid of the counsellor’s interventions, conflict resolution is possible and new ways forward can be found. Family therapy is particularly useful for children and young adults.
A family therapist may meet family members together or they may also meet then individually, this will be decided by the therapist depending the issues that are being faced.
