Systemic Counselling & Therapy

The Family Therapy framework works on the understanding that a person's distress is often linked with their relationships to the people around them, both past and present - especially within their family.
Individuals & families participating in systemic therapy find that it helps repair relationships, and focuses the family's attention on improving daily life for everyone.

What can Family Therapy help with?
  • Mental Illness
  • Managing Grief and Loss
  • Transition into Aged Care
  • Learning & Behaviour Difficulties in Childhood
  • Substance Abuse
  • Addictions
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Past & Current Trauma
  • Social Withdrawl
  • Panic Attacks
  • Social Anxiety
  • Adolescent Depression and Anger
  • Men's stress, and intimate relationships
  • Couples Intimacy & Relationship Conflict
  • Acute or Chronic illnesses and relationships

    Some people come to see us with concerns about family issues or life transitions, while others come with concerns about a family member. We work collaboratively and in coordination with the other professionals in the family system: doctors, individual psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, social workers, family support agencies, schools, and child protection. This is especially true for families with complex issues, or suffering siginificant and long-standing distress.
