Counselling Can Help Parents and Carers
We all start this life with a family, whether that family is composed of blood relatives, adopted parents, a close-knit neighbourhood, or a foster family.
This family that we acquire when we are born influences every aspect of our lives, from our first moments to our last.
Our family affects who we are and who we become, for better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.
We also learn how to love and how to interact with others from these first important relationships.
Whomever, your family unit comprises: Mother, Father and siblings or single parent and child/children, Adult Parent and Adult Child, Stepfamily, Julie has experience of supporting different and unique groups of people. She offers a non-judgemental, empathic and caring approach to every family member.
The most common issues I work with are:
Boundaries – Setting and establishing.
Challenges: both in behavioural and communication. Family arguments and conflict.
School refusal and anxiety.
Influences and recurring themes from the past and present challenges.
Values differing between Parent and Child/Teenager.
Parenting Styles and your Child’s responses.
Anxiety, Stress and Depression in the family which impacts other family members.
Learning Disability or Difficulty and the impact on siblings and the child and parents.
Transitions to a new stage of life and feelings around that.
Stepfamily dynamics and relationships.
Other common reasons for seeking family therapy include:
When a child is having a problem such as with school, substance abuse, or disordered eating
A major trauma or change that impacts the entire family (i.e., relocation to a new house, natural disaster, family member in prison)
Adjustment to a new family member in the home (i.e., birth of a sibling, adoption, foster children, a grandparent entering the home)
