Family therapy in Scotland

Family therapy is designed with the aim of supporting the family unit. Our experienced therapists can work with your family on a range of issues that impact on the family and the relationships within it.

What Is family therapy?

A family therapist will work with families or ‘family-like’ groups to find ways to improve things using constructive methods. Our family therapist will provide support as you explore ways of moving forward.

Can family therapy help my family?

There are a number of issues that can have a big impact on the relationships between family members. Our family therapists are particularly experienced at providing support for the following issues:

  • Changes to family life/relationships
  • Parenting difficulties
  • Emotional difficulties following bereavement
  • Eating disorders
  • Couple relationship difficulties
  • Separation/divorce
  • Adolescent/child behaviours, such as attention and over-activity issues
  • Adolescent/child mental health
  • Adult mental health
  • Adoption and fostering
  • Social policy, such as child protection
  • Domestic violence
  • Post-trauma difficulties
  • Self-harming

Therapy for children or young people

Sometimes a young family member may have issues that would benefit from individual therapy. In addition to family therapy, our centres offer  therapy for children or young people. We will discuss this therapy option with you if we feel it would be beneficial for your circumstances.
