Family counselling helps you to understand and cope better with the stresses and strains of family life.
‘‘It helped me enormously with my relationship with my son. Boundaries are in place and mostly being adhered to, which has led to a much happier atmosphere at home.
Families can be a source of support, encouragement and love but sometimes relationships within families are put under strain and family members feel isolated or overlooked. Family counselling can help when siblings aren’t getting on, or parents and children are going through a divorce or separation. Forming a new family is a challenge and it is at this point that many parents contact Relate for some support to help everyone settle.
Every family member can expect to have a voice and be heard within family counselling. Relate family counsellors help everyone to say how they are feeling and to work out their differences. Family counselling can help reduce conflict which means fewer rows at home and can help everyone cope better with their situation.
Is it for me?
Everyone has family arguments at some time. Usually these are easily resolved but sometimes they just get worse and you may feel at a loss to know what to do next. This is when a RelateFamily Counsellor can help you work things out in a way that’s best for everyone.
Big changes in a family can cause stress for everyone, long running disputes can cause pain to the whole family, and the problems one person might be going through can affect their relations with others. Relate can help you improve your family relationships and help you on the way to a more fulfilling family life.
What’s the next step?
Before beginning Family Counselling, you will have an initial consultation so we can assess exactly how we can help you. Following this you can make your appointments with the counsellor at a time convenient for everyone can attend. The counsellor may also suggest that family members sometimes come alone or in smaller groups or bring other relatives to some sessions depending on your situation so that all the issues can be addressed.
