Family counselling with our clinic uses Internal Family Systems (IFS) and circle approach. This means we will discuss family dynamics and each family member’s role in it, what need this meets and how to relate in a healthier way. A circle approach is used to ensure all family members have a voice and can share in a safe, caring space that we will create together.
The process of beginning work with couples and families includes meeting with everyone together and then meet with each member of the couple or family alone (children might be an exception depending on age and developmental level). This is not to be secretive or keep secrets. It is to collect personal information that may impact relationship and explore feelings in a safe way. We then all meet together again, following a full assessment to meet your common goals
