People often come for therapy as they are hurting or distressed and they have found that they are confused about how to move forward. They can be worried about someone else, are having difficulty with relationships with their spouse, children, or coworkers. Some people prefer to attend therapy on their own, while others wish to include the family member they are concerned about. I see people with depression, anxiety, attention difficulties, obsessive compulsive disorder, substance abuse, adjustment issues (separation and divorce).

This helps family members understand each other as they experience changes.
Everyone is unique and encounters different life experiences. Some of these experiences change the ways we think, feel, and act. Children and youth might begin to say negative things about themselves, start to struggle with school performance and peer relationships, react easily and in ways that seem bigger than the situation, and experience physical changes like headaches or stomach aches. Another component of these changes involves looking at how adults are processing their responses to them. It is important for adults to know that supporting a child or youth, in addition to themselves, is not something they have to face alone.

As a registered marriage and family therapist I often use a family systems perspective examining the origins of our belief systems about gender roles, parenting, attributes of a healthy marriage, legacy of secrecy and the impact of addictions from one generation to another including alcohol, drugs, eating disorders and gambling.
Throughout my years as a therapist I continue to feel passionately about the value of listening to an individual's story. Unique and challenging, these stories also reflect capacities for resilience, determination, self-reflection and the willingness to foster and nurture changes when faced with unexpected stressful/painful life events. I use a depth-orientated approach which connects individuals to the underlying emotional feelings/events that have occurred.

Family Therapy Counsellors
If you're looking for family therapy in London or for a London family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in London using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counselling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
