FAMILY THERAPY - Structure of counselling: Family with therapist
Having a family generally means you no longer have only yourself and your own problems to think about.
We look at families interactional patterns of behaviours and ways of relating. Often these can be unconsciously acted out and maintained by a family.
Core Connections counsellors are trained to assist you in understanding, the complexities of interconnected familial relationships, and to nurture and promote change.
Family Therapy can be beneficial for:
Families who are experiencing issues and/or difficulties when: they have their first child (2nd, 3rd, & so on) ~ parenting young children, youths and adolescents ~ faced withloss and grief issues / trauma ~ step parenting ~ separating ~ divorcing ~ retiring ~ a family member has a mental health issue, physical disability, or is mentally challenged etc.
With the increasing demands and pressures of modern society, it provides little or no space for reflection and connection within relationships. Relationships are immersed in a climate that submits to constant social and political changes. With this change comes many new issues for families and couples to negotiate both morally and psychologically.
Core Connections counsellors hope by opening up discussions regarding external influences impeding upon families and couples, it will lead to greater intimacy and connectedness within their relationships.
