How can family therapy help?
How Can Family Counselling Help?
A family is a system, and if one of part of a system isn't working, then the whole system starts to break down. Family therapy helps to identify the negative interactions or cycles that can start to emerge within family systems, and to de-escalate these, and then rebuild positive cycles of interaction, so that the family can become stronger and more cohesive; and turn towards each other again, instead of away from each other.
Family therapy can help deal with an issue that manifests in one member of your family or one that everyone is experiencing. It is a chance for two or more family members to have a conversation in a supportive environment that helps you see new ways through together.
You don't have to be experiencing great difficulties to attend family therapy. It's also very useful as a check-in to keep your relationships on track.
"It's so helpful to come here, Fran. It's made such a difference in our lives! I tell all our friends about you - the ones who need help in their marriage." K.S. & F.L.
I feel that today’s session was of great value and has given me significant food for thought and self-reflection.
You were a HUGE help in getting us through a very tough time and we really appreciated your gentleand supportive manner.
My time with you was incredibly valuable and I learned a lot. On another note, I’ve never see “S” so happy. He’s sure in a good place right now. I’m glad he went to see you. Thanks again for everything.
Fran uses a type of therapy specifically created for couples called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I have been to couples therapy with previous partners (and therapists), and I have never felt so supported during a session. The techniques she uses help my partner and I really hear each ...
I would highly recommend Fran as a therapist for any struggling couple, as well as for any individuals needing extra emotional support and understanding.
I appreciate your calm and caring energy.
My wife and I are finally moving forward together.
I have learned so much and will be forever grateful to Fran for guiding me through this journey.
We have had a very positive experience and will be seeing Fran again. It helped us as my husband is moving back in with me tomorrow.
