AS a result of my Family Therapy training I am able to;
*Help with relationships between couples,children,grandparents,friends,work colleagues.
*Tensions that arise from difficulties/bullying at work
*At the end of a relationship-how to part causing the least pain
*Support for children and young people during divorce
*Support for families after a diagnosis of Dementia or other chronic illness.
* Support for those undergoing gender reassignment
Family Therapists believe that there are many and complex reasons why relationships breakdown and as far as possible families should be helped to find their own solutions.
A useful explanation of systemic therapy can be found on
As a Family Therapist/psychotherapist I am able to see individuals or families or whoever the client feels is of importance to them.
Sessions last for approximately one hour and there is no upper limit to the number of sessions although the average is between 4 and 6.
I see clients on Monday,Tuesday and Wednesday's either at my Sion address
The first session is an assessment where we decide together if this is a useful way of working for you and if not I may be able to suggest a more suitable route to follow.
