The Counsellors at Jericho Counselling Clinic are trained and experienced in working with Families. Most of our counsellors also come with extensive experience working with Children and Youth and this is especially helpful when engaging the younger members of families.
The goal of Family Counselling is to discover the unique challenges and strengths of each Family System and then use that knowledge to build a more harmonious home or relational environment. There are many ways to accomplish work with families and at Jericho Counselling, we are open to discovering what works best for each family. In some cases, the entire family will be present for all or most counselling sessions. In other cases, there will be different groups of people present for each meeting. Your counsellor will discuss the options with you and negotiate the best way to work with your family.
At Jericho Counselling, we believe that each family has its own long-standing culture. Our counsellors will take some time to get to know what is important to you and your family before we begin advancing ideas about how to help. We will explore your values, strengths, and a bit of history, before we focus in too much on the problems and how we can help you make changes. There is such richness in a family system and at Jericho Counselling, we want to collaboratively build goals with each family to provide the chance to understand differently what may have been going on, as well as build new skills and practices that will respectfully, and positively influence each family for years to come.
Some of the issues that bring people to Family Counselling include concerns about Addiction, Violence, Communication issues, Behavioural issues, Mental Health, Special Needs, Grief and Loss, Life Transitions, and many other challenges.
