Family Therapy

Serious illness and the challenges of adjustment after treatment can touch the lives of everyone in the family.

As a family you may be struggling with:

  • talking to your child/children about the changes in your family since Mum or Dad’s diagnosis and treatment
  • changes in your child’s behaviour, such as being clingy or impulsive
  • changes in your teen’s behaviour, such as being angry, distant or withdrawn
  • communicating your needs and listening to each other
  • changing roles

The major benefit of family therapy is that it helps your family talk with each other. In the face of a cancer diagnosis and treatment, this isn’t always easy to do by yourselves.

Family therapy can help you to:

  • improve your communications skills as a family so that you can explore things that might be challenging , yet remain open, connected and supportive of each other
  • learn to manage strong emotions such as guilt, anger, sadness, fear or anxiety so that all of you have a way of expressing your feelings safely and respectfully
  • utilize your family’s strengths and resources in order to meet the challenges that you face with confidence and hope for the future
  • move from a “problem” focus to a “we can” focus as you learn new coping skills and positive ways to communicate with each other

Family therapy sessions are 75 minutes.
