Some people that come to the Centre are experiencing difficulties that are best addressed with their families there. They may be struggling with something outside of their home which has become so difficult that it is affecting their relationships with parents or carers and siblings. Or something may have happened within the family that causes disruption and breakdown in their relationships.
If this is the case for you, it is often helpful for other members of your family to come to sessions with you, so that you can think together with a therapist and begin to work on things you would like to change. In sessions, your therapist will engage everyone in a group discussion; helping your family to address the difficulties you and they are facing, and help you to move forward.
Good to know:
We offer support sessions which give parents and carers the opportunity to talk about the help their son or daughter needs. They are also a space for parents to discuss their own concerns about their young person.
Parent support sessions are offered at our Centre when a young person is in Adolescent Exploratory Therapy or Psychotherapy. Sessions are also available to the parents or carers of young people accessing our services in schools.
What is discussed in a young person’s own sessions will not be shared in support sessions unless the young person has given their consent.
