Experience Change Counselling

Family Counselling

Whether you are a young family experiencing a challenging circumstance, a family of adults wanting deeper connection with siblings or parents, or a blended family wanting to establish meaningful relationships family therapy can be a beautiful addition to your hopes of developing and maintaining healthy relationships.  

Sometimes families fall in to hurtful patterns and ways of interacting that can lead to deep, painful conflict and possibly loss of relationship. It can be hard to try to change these patterns on your own.

When someone is trying to change, heal and grow research is clear that the most effective way to achieve this is with the support of family and community. When a partner, parent or sibling can participate in the healing process everyone benefits. 

Family sessions seek to empower each member of the family, at every age, to gain a fuller understanding of what they are hoping for and what they can take responsibility for in moving toward healthier relationships with self and others. Family therapists can help with working toward strengthening relationship bonds, repairing old wounds and changing familiar patterns. The family therapist seeks to facilitate each family’s unique goals for therapy.
