Family Counselling

Counselling is a process which allows people to discuss their problems and their feelings in a safe and confidential environment. People seek out therapists to explore their thoughts and feelings, to gain clarity and insight into their situations, and to discover solutions for what is troubling them.

In talk therapy sessions, the therapist will encourage you to talk about what's upsetting you in order to discover any core causes and to identify your thought patterns. The therapist may then look to create a treatment plan to help you reconcile your issues and to help you to find new better ways of coping. Your therapist may bring a variety of research based treatment strategies into your sessions which can include but are not limited to: Motivational interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy and more.

 

Separation and Divorce Counselling

Divorce Counselling can assist you in managing the numerous emotional stages of separation and divorce until you reach a place of resolution, strength, and peace. While parents do their best to shield their children from the pain of separation and divorce, it can often be difficult as parents are in the midst of hurt themselves. Separation and divorce counselling can assist parents in working through their emotions so that they are in a more positive place- enabling them to better look after their children’s needs.

 

Co-Parent Counselling

Marriages and relationships end and people are free to go their separate ways, except when there are children of the relationship. In order to meet the children’s best interests, parties will need to learn how to effectively co-parent moving forward. Co-parent counselling assists parents in learning new techniques on how to communicate with one another positively in order to ensure that there is stability and consistency for the children.

 

Blended Family Counselling

Blending a family can be difficult, and research has demonstrated that second and subsequent marriages have much higher divorce rates than first marriages do- with some statistics stating that their failure rate is 70% and even higher. Blended Family Counselling is pro-active measure that can help families begin their new lives together on a positive note. For families that have already blended, unforeseen difficulties may have already occurred. Whatever the scenario, blending families are not easy, and each situation is accompanied by their own sets of struggles. Blended family counselling is a helpful measure that gives parents the skills, knowledge, and tools that they need for success.
