Family Therapy

Family Therapy

It is not uncommon for families to face challenges.
Family therapy normally involves the whole family, or several family members, meeting with a counsellor or psychologist to discuss presenting issues.

Family therapy is helpful in situations where the family system has been disrupted.  This may be a result of a problem of a single family member or multiple family members, where the issue is related or completely different.

The aim of family therapy is not to place blame on a single family member but rather to change overall family interaction or behaviour to help resolve the concern.

Typical situations we see at Think Psychological Services include:

  • Conflict between family members
  • Illness of a family member
  • Re-marriage and acceptance
  • Sibling relationships
  • Parent and adult children relationships
  • Grief and loss
