Family Counselling

Family counselling is for families who are experiencing relationship issues and communication difficulties. Family Counselling can help your family communicate better and find solutions to meet your needs.

Who is it for?

Family counselling is for families who are experiencing relationship issues and communication difficulties. Family counselling sessions are particularly valuable to families who are:

  • Facing conflict
  • Worried about the wellbeing or safety of a family member
  • Coping with separation, divorce or grief
  • Experiencing behavioral issues or school concerns

What will it be like?

Families tell us that whilst it can feel daunting, talking as family to a counsellor helps all family members better understand and relate to each other, restore trust, communication and strengthen relationships. An experienced counsellor will meet with you and your family, sometimes together, sometimes separately, to help you communicate better with each other and find solutions to meet your needs.

Key outcomes

  • Clarify your problems.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.
