Family Counselling 

It is common for families to go through ups and downs. If your family is experiencing relationship issues, communication difficulties or is undergoing a significant adjustment, our family counsellors can help you find solutions to meet these needs.

At Positive Solutions we are experienced in working with families and can provide counselling for families. We are also a member of Stepfamilies Australia and this support is also extended to blended families.

Our family counsellors are experienced and skilled in dealing with the challenges that are faced by families. We will help support families to strengthen relationships within the family unit by:

  • assessing their needs
  • identifying areas for change
  • promoting understanding and ways of relating
  • restoring trust and communication

What are the benefits of family counselling?

The benefits of counselling will vary from one family to the next. The benefits may include:

  • developing healthy boundaries
  • improving communication
  • defining someone’s role within the family
  • improving family relationships and interactions
  • providing coping tools for family members
  • providing strategies to assist families to solve problems.
