The sheer idea of separation or divorce is heart-wrenching and emotionally, physically and mentally draining for all members of the family. More often than not we cannot prepare for all the changes that lie ahead: for the children, the parents, and the family as a whole.

No matter whether a family classes it’s family culture as Christian or not, divorce can be an extremely painful process, filled with confusion and sadness.

Family therapy can assist with:​

Assisting parents in a time of confusion on how best to parent their adolescents – developing a keener sense of insight to what is really going on in their teenage lives;

How to manage behaviour of children that can seem strange and at time distressing for some parents;

How to improve family communication, respect, build and shape more appropriate behaviour, and develop a shared understanding between parents and children;

Supporting a family in preparation for separation and/or divorce;

Adjusting to divorce and separation;

Supporting families with a sole parent, or in a step/blended family situation.
