Family and Group Counselling

Family counselling usually involves several members of the family, sometimes at different times, and sometimes all together to try to resolve issues that involve the way the family functions. This may involve Mum and Dad coming to learn how to be more effective in their approach to parenting. It may involve Mum or Dad and a son or daughter coming for support with a school-related issue. It may involve the whole family coming to discuss how they deal with someone’s illness. Sometimes it’s hard to know whether family counselling is the right way to go until you’ve spoken to a counsellor, so it’s ok to contact us first by yourself.

If you and your partner are having difficulties resolving conflict over something, whether it’s how to manage children, the finances, or various life issues, this can impact on the whole family. This is where counselling can help. It is better to seek help early rather than leave it until it’s too late. A counsellor can help you and your partner to clarify what kind of relationship you want to have, what’s getting in the way, and how to deal with those issues so you can have the relationship you really want.

If you’re between the ages of 11 and 18 and feel like you’re struggling but have no-one you can talk to, we can help. If you’re struggling with any of these things-
 

  • low self-esteem,

  • worrying all the time, feeling depressed,

  • hating the way you look, being bullied or hurt by someone,

  • not getting on with your friends or family, or if something is just bothering you and you don’t know what to do about it – then ask Mum, Dad or whoever looks after you to ring and make an appointment. However, if it’s easier, you can contact us by email.

Have you been trying to deal with an issue for a long time and it just hasn’t gone away? Or maybe something major has happened and you feel overwhelmed and you don’t know what to do? Our counsellors can help you to clarify your thinking or find new ways to look at a situation, work through difficult and painful feelings, or identify new strategies for managing difficult situations. Sometimes it just helps to talk to someone who’s not involved in what’s going on. Thinking about seeing a counsellor can be a bit scary. We do everything we can to make it comfortable and non-threatening.

Some of the issues we deal with include-

  • Separation and divorce

  • Past and present abuse

  • Anger issues

  • Grief and loss

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Low self-esteem and identity issues

  • Relationship conflict

  • Parenting challenges

  • Unexpected pregnancy
