Is family therapy suitable for all ages?

Yes, family therapy is adapted for all ages and takes into account the needs of each family member.

How long does a family therapy session take?

A session usually lasts between 50 and 60 minutes, but can be adapted to the needs of the family.

Do all family members need to participate in the therapy?

It’s best if everyone participates, but therapy can still be effective even if some family members can’t or don’t want to join in.

Can you get family counselling online in Melbourne?

Yes, many of our therapists offer online sessions, making it easier for families to participate regardless of their location.

What role do children play in family therapy?

The role of children in family therapy is important. The therapist works to give children a safe place to express their feelings and thoughts. Children help provide a deeper understanding of family dynamics and can be the key to successful solutions. The therapist often uses creative and age-appropriate methods to engage children in therapy.

Benefits of online therapy services

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and challenging for families. That’s why we offer specialized family therapy, a service tailored to strengthen family bonds and resolve conflicts in a healthy way. Our therapists are not only experts in their field, but they also understand the unique challenges that families can face.

Benefits of family therapy

Present and available

Our therapists are readily available, making it easy for your family to get support when needed. Regular online sessions help build a stronger relationship between the therapist and family members.

Understanding cultural conditions

Therapists who work in your language have a deeper understanding of your social and cultural context. This perspective can be an advantage in adapting therapy to your specific needs and situation.

Immediate crisis response

In the event of a family crisis, our local therapists can quickly offer support and guidance. This is an important factor in safely navigating through difficult periods.

The alternative: Remote therapy

Although face-to-face therapy is often preferred for a variety of reasons, we understand that this is not always possible. Therefore, we offer remote therapy via video conference. This is an excellent option if:

  • There is a lack of local therapists with the right specialization.
  • Family members have difficulty coordinating times for physical meetings.
  • Someone in the family prefers the anonymity and convenience of therapy from home.

Our remote therapy includes the same high-quality support as face-to-face services. It takes place via secure video links and offers flexibility for families with busy schedules.

Our family therapy is designed to make the difficult easier. We offer support for your family to grow and overcome challenges together. When you connect with a therapist remotely, our goal is the same as in a face-to-face session – to strengthen your family and give you the tools to make the difficult easier.

If you think therapy is the right way forward for your family, don’t hesitate to book an initial consultation with one of our therapists today.

6 tips for those considering family counselling

1. Understand the purpose of family therapy

Before starting therapy, it is important to understand what family therapy is. It is a form of therapy that aims to improve communication and resolve conflicts within the family. Through therapy, you will learn to deal with difficulties together as a unit.


2. Choosing the right therapist

Finding a therapist that suits your family is crucial. Look for someone with experience in family therapy and a background that you feel comfortable with. It is important that all family members feel heard and understood.


3. Prepare for open communication

Be prepared that family therapy requires open and honest communication. It can be challenging, but it is necessary to bring about change. Remember that the opinions and feelings of all family members are important.

4. Set realistic goals

Discuss and set common goals with your family and the therapist. This helps keep the therapy focussed and gives you something to work towards. Goals should be realistic and achievable.


5. Engage all family members

For family therapy to be effective, it is important that all family members are engaged and actively participate. This may mean compromising at times and working together as a group.


6. Have patience and an open mind

Change takes time, and it is important to be patient through the process. Be open to new perspectives and methods suggested by the therapist. Remember that progress is often gradual.

Remember: If you or someone in your family experiences a mental health emergency, do not hesitate to call emergency services on 000 to seek professional help. Family therapy is a step towards better psychological health, but it does not replace emergency care if needed.
