In Family Therapy, the therapist provides a safe haven where family members can clarify relationship problems and understand the patterns of communication that prevent a satisfying resolution.
The therapist helps family members to talk to each other in new ways that help them to connect and care for each other. A positive outcome study on our approach to improving family relationships was conducted at the Ottawa Hospital, Civic Site. This approach is based on a well-researched perspective on parent-child relationships.
With our help family members create often more secure emotional bonds that help them deal effectively with family crises, transitions and problems. Positive secure family connections help children develop a positive sense of self, psychological resilience and coping skills.
Family Therapy can help parents deal with anxiety and depression in their children and adolescents as well as the general problems that arise in family transitions.
