What is Family Counselling?

Family counselling seeks to understand people through their family relationships. Very often our behaviours are connected to the behaviours we have learned from our immediate families. Online Family Counselling helps by guiding these complex relationships toward meaningful understandings for all.

What happens to one member of the family has an impact on all members of the family. A disruption in one system causes a disruption of the entire system.

During Online Counselling, we work with the family as a unit, understanding that many circumstances are connected and that we are working toward a solution for everyone.

TherapyNow offers an integrated online Family Support Structure.

Virtual counselling sessions are set up between partners, siblings and various combinations of family members.

The recovery rate of the entire family is significantly accelerated when each member, individually and collectively, undergo counselling support alongside the initial patient.

Family counselling is never about blame, shame, guilt or fear. Family counselling is about creating a platform to resolve issues that have happened between family members. We examine the assigned roles and events that have occurred within the family structure and how these roles and scenarios can establish a path forward.

Family counselling focuses on restoring bonds, encouraging communication and teaching each family member how to play their part so that the family can positively function.

Online family counselling can help members have a voice, and express their feelings and their needs so that these can be met. 

Can Family Counselling Help My Family?

Every family has issues – some are easily resolved, but some are not. An online counsellor can help gain perspective and mediate as required.

Things like the loss of a loved one, separation, divorce, moving, loss of income, substance misuse or any trauma that impacts the whole family, are some of the issues that can benefit from family counselling. Grief Counselling can help in any of these mentioned. Parents who are battling with their kids or the transition to teens, could also consider parental guidance or counselling for the teen themselves.

Online Family Counselling seeks to create understanding and therefore improve the quality of family relationships.

Family Counselling is aimed at improving communication between family members, enhancing the quality of relationships, strengthening bonds and increasing the overall happiness of the whole family.

There are many scenarios that can benefit from online counselling: going through or considering divorce; blended families; substance misuse; disorders; sexual orientation or any other issue. These are all discussed in a safe, supported virtual space.

Often, issues come down to family members not understanding one another and finding a voice and safe space to unpack it all.
