We work in ways that acknowledge the contexts of people's families and other relationships by sharing and respecting individuals' different perspectives, beliefs, views and stories, and exploring possible ways forward. Thus, we not only support change with individuals but also in their relationships in the family and beyond; so children, young people, adults and/or those important to them are supported in continued recovery. All sessions are offered with a commitment to respect, protect and preserve the confidentiality of the clients.

What is Family Therapy?
Families are small and unique communities. Like all communities they sometimes get into difficulties through their differences with one another, or feel the strain when members experience troubles.
Family and Systemic Psychotherapy
often called Family Therapy - helps people in close relationship help each other. It enables individuals and family members to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on family strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to help an individual or a family free up their strengths; sometimes difficulties are more complex and families may need longer to find solutions that work for them.
Family Therapists' areas of particular experience and expertise include:
- Family relationships and changes in family life
- Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC)
- Fostering and adoption
- Drug and alcohol misuse
- Domestic violence
- Difficulties relating to aging
- Emotional disorders including anxiety and depression
- Grief following bereavement and loss
- HIV and related conditions

How might it help me and my family?
Research shows Family Therapy is useful for children, youths, young people and adults experiencing a wide range of difficulties and circumstances, as well as relationship problems.
What happens in family therapy?
You will see a therapist or counsellor working alone or in a team or in partnership with colleagues. The Family Therapists acknowledge the importance of peoples’ different beliefs, cultures and tribes, contexts and life experiences, and will adapt their ways of working according to family members’ ages, needs, resources and preferences. Sessions involving children, for example, will often include play and drawing. The Family Therapist will discuss with you and your family how you might wish to work together.
Most individuals and families experience serious difficulties sometimes. If it feels your individual or family relationships are suffering, if you’re no longer sure what to do for the best or family members seem stuck in repeating patterns of hurtful or harmful behaviour, Family Therapy may help.
