Restore and strengthen your important relationships
Family Therapy in Geelong West
Shake off the old family dynamic and move forward with a fresh, new approach.
All families are different and so are the issues they face each day.
The purpose of family therapy is to support families to build stronger relationships, improve communication, and manage conflicts within the family system in order to create a better home environment for all family members.
The techniques used in family therapy focus on improving emotional awareness, assisting with major changes within a family, helping people accept things they cannot control, and improving communication and collaboration.
Other specific techniques used in family therapy may include learning to practice empath, emotional validation, reflective listening and cognitive reframing.
