Perhaps this back and forth is affecting how you behave with your family, friends or partner and you’re finding it difficult to cope. You want to live a life where you can integrate more aspects of yourself and feel more whole, to hear and trust yourself, without fear of feeling shame, feeling seen or even feeling truly known by those who matter most to you.

Would you like to talk to someone impartial about your relationship difficulties, find out tips on how to communicate better with your partner? Are you looking to separate or divorce after an infidelity or a stressful few years? Maybe you've grown apart or just not sure whether you want to stay together? Perhaps your sex life is suffering and you want to improve it. Do you feel frustrated because you end up having the same kind of argument over and over and you want to understand why you feel stuck?

Hi, I'm Dr Hannah Ryan, a Clinical Psychologist. Are you a parent of a teenager who is struggling with mental health difficulties, anxiety, anger, low mood, self-harm, exam worry, school refusal, rebellious or challenging behaviour? Are you overwhelmed, exhausted or burned out? Are you looking for support with parenting or for them? If so, you are not alone, and help is available. Having worked with many parents and teens in similar situations I can appreciate, but never fully understand, how incredibly challenging and all-consuming it can be to parent a young person with additional emotional or behavioural needs, especially today.

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.
