Family Therapy

 

Family Therapy

Family therapy or support is neglected in health services yet modern research suggests that practically all psychological problems benefit from therapeutic approaches which involve wider family networks.

The younger a person is when their problems start, the more likely it is that a family support approach will be helpful. In particular, if a person is living with a wider family close by or in the home, then it's usually crucial that they are involved in some way in treatment.

We at Clinical Partners appreciate that a lot of hard work in treatment done elsewhere is often completely wasted because families are not involved enough.

Why seek family counselling and support?

Family support can range from full blown involvement via assembling, where all members of a family are invited. This can appear a very stressful prospect, but in fact most families adapt surprisingly well to this apparently forced or artificial predicament, and in just a few minutes get engaged in working to improve mental health.

Family therapy helps families understand and cope with the pressures and issues that can come with family life.

It can help with everyday issues, building understanding and improving communications and reducing conflicts within the family.

It can also help with more difficult issues including:

  • Separation or divorce
  • Bereavement or loss
  • Changes in family circumstances
  • Coping with illnesses or mental health issues
  • Addictions and eating disorders
  • Trauma

Our clinicians are trained in the special skills required in handling family meetings. This is a vital consideration as there are often taboo issues which certain members of the family require to handles particularly sensitively, or perhaps client confidentiality may have to be retained.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS. It is much appreciated, and you and Dr Chowdhury have helped greatly in relieving the stress we have been feeling by getting us to a place where we know what is going on, and what we need to do for our son.

  • I would recommend Clinical Partners to anyone who has been struggling with getting a diagnosis, it can totally transform your lives as it has ours.

  • I was fed up with life when I contacted Katie at Clinical Partners, her response to my call and the support thereafter kept me alive.

  • Dr Alison was very caring and approachable. Your approach and response to my call will be remembered for a very long time.

  • Just saw J. He wanted me to tell you how much he appreciated the way you spoke to him on the phone Caroline. He said you made him feel human again when he felt quite suicidal. He was really pleased he was seen so quickly.

  • We met with the doctor today, he was great, we felt at ease with him, he was very professional in his approach and obviously knew what he was doing! Thank you for your help in arranging such a quick appointment.
