Family therapistWhat is family therapy?

The family life can sometimes be challenging and may cause conflicts between family members. It is very common that disagreements or conflicts occur when big changes happen in the family and cause turmoil. It may be difficult to handle appropriately or can be unmanageable which makes family counselling a helpful solution to get you and your family back on track.

Typical situations that may cause family issues:

  • The family before, during and after a divorce
  • Yours, mine and ours children - brought together families
  • Conflicts between generations or siblings
  • Doubts and disagreements - eg. in relation to upbringing, conflicts, and "what is best for the children"
  • Restoration of families after separation

How does family therapy work?

A family therapist is working together with the family in examining and processing the internal problems in the family and its relation to the surroundings. The focus is on hearing every single member of the family and helping them being heard and understood. The therapist strives to strenghten the family relation to one another. It is very different how the process with a family therapist will proceed depending on the situation and which challenges you're struggling with. By divorce with children involved, a family therapist will focus on them and whether they're being heard.
