How can an online family therapist help my family?
It can be difficult to get all members of a family, particularly children or teenagers, to cooperate with online therapy. Equally, in cases where one party has committed infidelity or other betrayals of trust, they may be afraid of being attacked or blamed in an online therapy session. A family therapist will act as an intermediary, working to ensure that discussions are conducted in a productive and non-confrontational way.
How long does family therapy take?
The duration of online family therapy depends on the methods used and the issues facing your particular family. If there are difficulties engaging all family members with the therapeutic process, the therapy will take longer. Our Harley Street based online therapists work hard to make sure you all get as much as possible from your sessions without neglecting any members of your family or allowing anyone to dominate the conversation.
Is online family therapy effective?
If all family members are dedicated to change, family therapy can be a very useful way to foster healthy communication between family members and iron out any issues. Family therapy teaches each family member how to respect one another and avoid conflict in a way which has been proven to be effective in the long-term, even in cases where it seems that family relations have been damaged beyond repair.
