Another reason for Family Therapy might be when a young person or child is already in therapy and the therapist feels that it would be beneficial to include the rest of the family in the work. This can often happen when a child or young person has done as much work as they can individually in therapy, and to make any further changes they need support from their family members in some way. Perhaps routines can be discussed together or boundaries reset, or maybe feelings can be aired to enhance caring relationships again.
At Langley Therapy we often invite parents to attend with the child or young person in these cases. Sometimes we also invite siblings and the family attend as a whole.
The types of issues we have worked with in family therapy are bereavement, life changes – divorce, remarriage, redundancy – fertility issues, moving house/country, and many more.
The fees for Family Therapy are:
£65 per session,
The first session will be 90 minutes long, then 60 minutes after that
