Family Counselling Toowoomba | Move Your Life Forward

PROFESSIONAL FAMILY COUNSELLING & COUPLES THERAPY

Family Counselling supports families in discovering solutions that strengthen the wellbeing of adults, adolescents, and children, and is the specialty of our dedicated therapists.

We understand that families come in different forms and often experience change.   Those are among reasons that may contribute to making family life challenging, complex, and a common source of conflict.

Family therapy provides professional and positive support to guide individuals within a family unit towards flourishing, instead of floundering, when trying to grapple with the pressure of different personalities, attitudes, expectations, and life transitions.

When your family life is stable, secure, loving, and caring, you are much more likely to feel happier and positive, and enjoy a higher quality level of health and wellbeing.

Our experienced family therapists and registered counsellors have the training, resources, and skills to offer you hope in repairing and resolving relationships, and to help you more smoothly navigate family life.

Move Your Life Forward with Family Therapy

When your family situation starts faltering or crumbling from any of life’s stressors, getting support early is important to stop a downward spiral or a snowballing effect that might negatively impact the wellbeing of yourself or others.

Our family counselling practitioners are qualified and skilled in helping people facing difficult and complex circumstances.  Such as, conflicts in blended families, bereavement, relationship breakdown, sibling rivalry, separation and divorce, family member illness or disability, aggression or anger issues, and challenging emotional and behavioural patterns in teenagers and young adults.

Family therapy serves as an effective way for a couple and/or other members of a family unit to come together, and to communicate and collaborate in a safe and confidential space.

A professional counsellor is independent and non-judgemental, offers guidance, presents fresh perspectives, and provides support to help turnaround life’s barriers, problems or challenges into solutions and a positive path forward. 

Your counsellor will listen carefully to understand what has brought you to this present point, and will explore with you, the goal or outcome from therapy that you believe is important to you.

Your uniqueness and individuality will be respected, as your therapist supports you in overcoming the problems that are impacting you, and which you want to resolve.

In our Practice, we make your wellbeing our professional priority, while helping equip and empower you to heal, resolve and renew, to positively move your life forward, and more smoothly navigate life’s challenges and opportunities.

How Couples Therapy Helps Rescue Relationships

Partnerships, especially long-term ones, can often be tough to sustain in the pressure-cooker of life.  Couples Therapy is a way of getting support and real solutions for saving relationships.  What’s important, is seeking help early before your relationship winds up in serious trouble, and before potentially impacting other family members, friends, finances, housing arrangements, or career.  

Even when partners have the best of intentions of fixing a relationship, they usually lack the special skills necessary to work through the complexities of raw human emotions.  It is extra hard too, when partners intricately know, and can leverage, each other’s weaknesses or vulnerabilities.  So that’s where the expertise of a trained and experienced relationship therapist can step in and is able to confidentially offer the right support and guidance.  Click here to learn more.

Family Counselling — 4 Relationship Therapy Tips

To get the best from family counselling sessions, when fixing a relationship is a priority, here are 4 tips to consider mindfully putting into practice:

  • OPENNESS —  Coming to therapy with an open mind to receive support and guidance, and with a willingness to genuinely connect, transparently communicate, and cooperatively collaborate for the common good of all, is vital for beginning a process of relationship repair and renewal.  Clutching to your own agenda or having a closed mindset to embracing different perspectives, concepts, and strategies, will only scuttle any real chance for success in strengthening relationships.
  • OWNERSHIP — Take responsibility and own your part in any missteps, mistakes or mess-ups in your family relationships. Keep yourself from blame-shifting and fault-finding.  Instead, focus on what you can change to contribute to positive transformation in your relationship with your partner or other family members.
  • ACCEPTANCE — How you think and act is a matter for you.  But how other people think and respond about life issues, is their responsibility.  Accepting you cannot expect everyone else to think or behave in the same way as yourself, opens the door to embracing greater understanding and tolerance.  Anger, resentment, and frustration fall away faster by genuinely accepting and valuing one another’s uniqueness and individuality.
  • FORGIVENESS —  Holding onto thoughts and feelings of negativity towards others keeps you stuck.  Your wellbeing stays stifled and sabotaged.  Forgiving others for hurt, pain or trauma caused, may seem a formidable thing to do.   The idea of it alone, may grate against every fibre of your being.  However, forgiveness is a gift you give to yourself.  Forgiveness frees you from a hold or control that another person has over you.  By extending mercy unconditionally, there’s a letting-go process of unshackling from past hurt and pain, leading to healing, growth of inner strength, and a capacity to move forward with fresh purpose.  The more you forgive, the more freed you become to easier love yourself and others.
