Bayside Mediation
Psychotherapist
Bayside Mediation specialises in helping those couples who are thinking of separating or who have already separated but not yet engaged with the Family Law process, understand the process and potential outcomes ahead of them. Our clients are seeking guidance and clarity; help to navigate and understand the Family Law process. Our clients are looking for a better way to separate, a better way than litigation to end a long term relationship. They can be in conflict or have issues in dispute. But ultimately, they don't want to waste thousands of dollars and years of their lives in litigation; they want another legal option, us.

All people of all ages can experience difficult times in their life. These may have been caused by an event that has caused distress, issues with family , friendships, relationships, the work place, health issues and countless other situations. Sometimes events have happened long ago and continue to trouble us and impact our life, or the situation may be more recent. It can be difficult to share what is happening. Often we don't want to burden or worry those who care for us; or we may feel uncomfortable talking to people we know. Counselling provides support toward finding resolutions and living life in the best way possible.

It’s Never Too Late for a New Beginning. Hi, I’m Sarah - Life can present us with many personal challenges. Do you feel anxious, lonely or depressed? Burnt-out or overwhelmed? Do you feel unheard or unable to express your needs in your relationships with your partner, family or friends? Maybe you are not sure what it is, but something doesn’t feel quite right? We all need help at some time to work through things. I understand that taking that first step to seek help can be hard - but the rewards can be great.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
