Family Therapy aims to prevent family breakdown by working directly with couples, families, young people and their families or caregivers to resolve conflict and improve relationships.
It is a voluntary, co-operative problem solving process in which qualified and impartial counsellors and Masters Counselling students assist you to resolve disputes and make decisions by agreement.
Family Therapy tends to be short-term and focuses on resolving current conflict and planning for the future.
