Family Therapy is an effective treatment intervention for families who may be stuck in unhelpful patterns of interaction that are producing symptomatic behaviour in members of the family, impacting development and wellbeing. Although not exhaustive, this could include conflict between family members; managing the impact of family illness; a breakdown in communication or contact following separation and divorce, and mental health concerns regarding a family member. The treatment is often brief in nature, perhaps up to six sessions spaced at two to three weekly intervals. Family Therapists work flexibly, seeing whole families together or working with various constellations of family members.
