Testimonials from families I have worked with

We really did benefit from meeting and working with you,we both were putting ourselves through complete misery until you came along and helped us work it out! Our two adoptive children have really settled and are very happy, my stress levels have certainly got better and my daughter and I are really enjoying spending time together. 

I am sure we will meet further challenges as we progress but it is fair to say you helped us talk about the elephant in the room! you were very patient and allowed us to talk at our pace, you didn't judge us or make us feel that we were wrong. (adoptive parents)

Testimonials from people who have engaged in Family Therapy

AD, a 'dad, partner + son'

‘It takes courage to say to your family maybe therapy might help us. A turning point for me was when I saw that not as failure but as a gesture of love. We cared enough to try. We’ve sorted lots of stuff out between us, and we did it together’.


Mr and Mrs B, 'recovering alcoholic and partner'

'We both experienced a sense of growth towards mutual understanding. We felt able to include our children and confront difficult, sensitive issues.'


A 'mother, son & sister'

Mum: ‘What’s helped, what’s different? Prior to family therapy my relationship with my son was at breaking point. Now, six month’s on, we’re listening to each other, getting on better. We have a different type of relationship.’

Son: 'I’m more appreciative of my Mum, want to make it easier for her. Having my sister in sessions gave a different perspective.'

Sister: 'I found the family sessions valuable as it gave me and my family a chance to sit down together and discuss issues in the home that we would not have otherwise. It opened my eyes and gave me the opportunity to see how my younger brother valued spending time together as a family, something I probably overlooked before the meetings. The meetings then gave us the chance to think about how we could do things differently day to day to improve life at home for everyone. They’ve made us all more considerate towards each other and this has meant we are more comfortable with discussing life at home.'


A 'mum, dad and three sisters'

Sister L: I feel that our family is closer and more open with each other. When mornings are very very hard we get up together, as a family and tell each other what was bothering us.

Sister S: It has made me more aware of how my behaviour affects my sister and how I can change that.

Dad: It has made me think that everyone deals with stress and problems in different ways. Hopefully I can be more alert now to things that need my attention and to 'read the signs’ before anything bad happens.

Mum: I feel things have improved as I feel stronger in dealing with boundaries rather than being left feeling guilty.
