Families come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, like a team or a tribe. When we are good, we can be very good but when one team member is hurt it affects everyone else in some way.
Family therapists are there to hear everyone’s voice, helping you reconnect, communicate, understand each other, and come together as a family again.
What is Family Therapy?
Family therapy is about relationships and communication between people.
Sometimes an event happens which affects all the family (death of a close relative, separation, health issues) and sometimes it only seems to be about one person (depression, bullying, job loss) but the effects ripple through the entire system. A family is like a living thing, when one part is hurt or upset everyone else is affected in some way.
Our main family therapist has many years’ experience working with children and families in the NHS and in social work and residential settings.
All our family therapists are dual qualified so will have qualifications in both family therapy and another allied profession like social work, nursing, teaching or psychology.

What is a family?
Families come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They may include lone parents, same sex parents, stepparents, grandparents, adult children, cousins, and close friends. They don’t have to all live together. Family therapists are interested in hearing everyone’s voice and will adapt their way of working to the different ages, cultures and needs of each family they see and each individual family member.
Children and young people may not be able to put their feelings or distress into words and may show this through their behaviour instead. This can be a worrying time for families who can’t make sense of what is going on. Providing a safe space to explore difficult feelings and improve communication can really help.
