- Improving healthy family systems and the more complex (or dysfunctional) family dynamic

- Working with families including the mother-child and father-child dyad

- Ante- and Post-Natal stages of pregnancy which include Post-Natal Depression and Anxiety (for both mother

  and father)

Our aim is to improve a high functioning family or enabling a family to develop better emotional interaction and communication skills so that there is greater understanding, empathy, and communication through critical periods of change, such as changing schools, changing jobs, moving to a new region or country, divorce, separation, death of close family, re-marriage, introduction of step-mother, step-father or step-sibling, or perhaps the greatest change of all, the empty-nest-syndrome. Therapy in this area is not only designed for the immediate family but can also include grandparents, close family friends, or other extended family or carers. It is important to note that the systemic family approach may have many dimensions and that these complexities are approached in a caring and holistic manner.
