Family counselling with me uses a Family Systems and circle approach. This means we will discuss family dynamics and each family member’s role in it, what need this meets and how to relate in a healthier way. I also use a circle approach to ensure all family members have a voice and can share in a safe, caring space that we will create together.
When I work with couples and families I meet with everyone together and then meet with each member of the couple or family alone (children might be an exception depending on age and developmental level). I do not do this to be secretive or keep secrets. It is to collect personal information that may impact relationship and explore feelings in a safe way. We then all meet together again, following a full assessment to meet your common goals
