Family Counselling

Our families have the potential to bring us joy and safety and a sense of belonging that cannot be equalled in any other part of our lives. The counselling I provide is dedicated to realising this potential.

About Family Counselling

Family counselling can help members of your family who care about one another to speak about difficult thoughts and emotions in a safe way where no one is scapegoated or blamed and everyone is heard and respected.

You will have an opportunity to become clear about each other’s beliefs, motivations and understandings and, where necessary, you will be able to clarify and reassure each other.

As you start to understand each other’s feelings and reasons behind behaviours, strengths in your family, that are already there, will naturally reveal themselves and can be used by all of you to bring safety to your relationships. Old, unhelpful ways of communicating can be left behind in the past and new, more helpful ways of being, can become part of your lives together today.

It can be a difficult process to sit in a room with family members that you have previously been at loggerheads with. I understand this and it is my responsibility to help this process by protecting you all from difficult language and the damage shame can cause. I will show you how to use language in more constuctive ways so you can hear eachother better and be the strength for one another that you each need.

Therapy works if people wish to attend. I do not apply pressure on anyone to have counselling. I think this is a sensible and just rule of thumb.
