Family therapy has been recognised as a successful way of assisting the family members in understanding and overcoming the problems that they as a family may experience. Good 2 Talk provides quality Family Therapy in Westmeath and the surrounding areas. Family therapy supports the family in finding more positive ways of moving forward together as a family. Change occurs naturally in families which can often be very challenging, where some situations are predicable e.g. children leaving home, or unpredictable such as, illness or sudden loss. The goal of family therapy is to explore how the problem is affecting the family and the relationships within the family, and assists in developing more positive outcomes.
Contrary to some old-school beliefs, family therapy is not a place where family members sit around and yell at each other. It is not meant to point fingers, throw blame at the parents for their child’s anxiety or hurl accusations at anyone. Family therapy is instead a method of psychotherapy that involves your anxious child and other family members.
Family therapy can be helpful for families in dealing with:
- Grief & Loss
- Behavioural Problems
- Relationship Difficulties
- Developmental Stressors
- Crisis And Trauma
