In this short video FTAI explain the benefits of Family Therapy:

Family Therapy, also known as Systemic Family Psychotherapy, enables individuals, couples and others in close relationships to safely explore emotional and interpersonal problems and make meaningful changes in their lives.

The problems people often bring to psychotherapy include relationship and parenting issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, substance misuse, child or adolescent behaviour, loss and a range of other difficulties.

Family Therapy aims to:

Identify goals and build on strengths to find positive solutions

Be sensitive and respectful to different family models, beliefs and cultures

Help people find new ways to resolve conflicts, avoid old triggers of conflict, deepen their understanding of themselves and others, in order to live more fulfilling lives

Enable people to talk, separately or together, about difficult or distressing issues

Help separating couples to do so in ways that are respectful and protective of the family’s wellbeing

Many people often achieve their goals in a small number of meetings.  Others may require more time and attention to help resolve old patterns, hurts and traumas. We pay attention to ensure that our practice is both ethical and culturally sensitive.

Theory and research guide us as we work with what fits best for the family or individuals attending.
