Jennifer McDermott, M.A., R.S.W., Counselling Services provides support & guidance for families experiencing difficult times. All families experience problems & face challenges at some point or another. When the need arises, family therapy is aimed at helping families to overcome crisis, improve relationships & provide support for problems such coping with life-changing events.
Issues such as divorce, illness & bereavement can be the cause of a great deal of distress & may lead to strained relationships. Divorce & illness are problems that are frequently addressed by Jennifer McDermott as part of her practice. They can bring about significant changes that can have a major impact on all concerned. Therefore, family therapy is often needed to help families face challenging periods & confront difficult situations as a single, cohesive unit.
Family therapy can prove very useful in solving or alleviateing common family struggles. The most common family concerns found in my practice are issues of trust, respect, communication & abuse. Often parents & children feel stuck in their relationships. In an effort to resolve this struggle family systems therapy is often utilized. Family systems therapy views the interaction between family members as a prime source of discord. It seeks to improve each individuals' well-being by focusing on the interconnected relationships found within families.
The therapy is about relationships, but also about the behaviours, feelings, and thoughts that family members experience as part of the family. Individual needs will often surface in family therapy, & as such Jennifer McDermott may suggest sessions for both individual members & the family as a whole. As family members better understand the dynamics of their situation, examine issues related to their family of origin, as well as develop their skills & strategies to resolving their conflicts, they will begin to enjoy more healthy & fulfilling relationships.
Jennifer McDermott Counselling Services can help you if you are in need of a family therapist.
