Family Therapy

Family therapy aims to improve the way families communicate and interact with one another. 

The team at Evolving Minds Counselling use a strengths based approach when working with families as we aim to help each family member gain perspective into their own behaviour and how this may impact on others.  By using a systems approach we can highlight what may may need adjusting, rather than pathologising individuals within the family system.

Reasons that may bring a family to therapy include difficulties due to:

The role of the counsellor in family therapy is to take an objective role as this enables all family members to feel safe within the therapeutic environment.  Insight is gained into the role of each family member and the impact this has on the family system itself.  

“Family therapists view the therapeutic relationship as a means to an end rather than as an end in itself. Family therapists see beyond the problematic patterns in the family to the potential healing power of family relationships ― Joseph A. Micucci".
