Family Therapy

Mental health problems are frequently complicated by family issues or reactions to the member identified as having “the problem”. So to effectively resolve the problem all members of the family need to understand it and contribute to or at least not interfere with the solution. For example blaming is a common issue that must be dealt with to avoid a blamed family member feeling like he or she is responsible for the happiness/unhappiness of the entire family. Because feelings in these circumstances are very strong and at the same time delicate, it is often helpful to have an experienced, insightful person (family therapist) guide the work of understanding and supporting all members.
