Family Therapy

Families can be a source of support, encouragement and love but sometimes relationships within families are put under strain and family members feel isolated or overlooked.

With family counselling, I can help when siblings aren’t getting on, or when parents and children are going through a divorce or separation. Forming a new family is a challenge and it is at this point that many parents contact me for some support to help everyone into their new roles.




Whatever difficulties you’re having as a family, I can help.

You will meet with me where I will provide confidential and non-judgemental support, and will encourage everyone who comes to have their say and to share their feelings, if they wish to do so. Counselling is a different experience for everyone, and what happens in your sessions will depend very much on what you hope to get out of it, and on the unique needs of your family.

My aim as your family counsellor is to help you to build stronger relationships between every member of the family and help you all to work together as a team. If you’re having problems as a family, whatever’s causing them, I can help the whole family to communicate better, and to understand and resolve differences.

When families go through change, it can be difficult to learn to adapt. Counselling can help family members to support one another through these difficult times, to reduce conflict and arguments and grow stronger as a result.

You can also get dedicated support if you’re parenting troubled teenagers, which can help you and your family through some of the challenges of this difficult period.

As a certified family therapist, I have helped many families find a balance in their life again. Call Siobhan now on  087 653 8837 for more information.
