Family Counselling 2018-10-20T09:45:20+00:00

For me family is one of the most important things in life. It is often the source of the greatest and happiest moments that we will ever experience as well as a few of the potentially most stressful and frustrating. For whatever reason, those times when things aren’t quite going the way that you’d like them to, they seem to go on forever and to start affecting other areas of your life.

In Solution Focused Counselling I will ask each member of your family that would like to participate in the session what their best hopes are from our sessions so that we can look at how you would all like things to be moving forward. This is the first step and often the most life changing.

I have been working with families for the past six years using Solution Focused Brief Therapy, and I am still amazed at how this question brings people together to move towards something that works for everyone involved. Then by exploring what this outcome might look when it’s happening for your family, you start to hear about the little things that would actually make a massive difference to those involved, whether it’s people talking to each other for more than 30 seconds, being able to eat a meal together or even being able to get out the door on time in the morning.

After exploring these details, we look at what parts of this are already happening and how you are managing to make these things happen. It is in this process that people are then able to start thinking about possible ways of moving things forward and getting back to living family life in a way that is right for them.

Sessions can take place online as well as face to face at the Therapy Life Centre at 11 Prittlewell Chase, Southend-on-Sea, Essex, SS0 0RX. Also, if you’d like to discuss the option of me coming to you, then please contact me so that we can discuss this further. Appointments are available on a flexible basis to fit your busy lifestyle and are available on various mornings, afternoons, evenings as well as occasional weekends. If you’d like to speak more about whether or not I could offer you an appointment at a time that is convenient for you, please do get in touch. The sessions  last for around 45 to 50 minutes and cost £75 per session.
