All families are in transition as we grow and develop and because the family never stands still, issues can arise which create conflict and pressure.
Family Therapy is usually short term work as the focus is generally on an issue which needs to be resolved in the present. Family Therapy offers help to those who are finding relationships within the family, problematic. It provides an opportunity to explore and think about issues that are causing upset and pain and are interfering with the functioning of the family unit.
Nightingale often works with parents, in laws, young adults, adult children, siblings and step children.
The goal of Family Therapy is to help family members improve communication, resolve conflict, have a better empathic understanding of each other and particular issues and help create a better functioning relationship. Sometimes step parents and stepchildren become part of an established family which can result in the family dynamics changing.

In many cases the conflict can be resolved by the facilitation of a qualified Family Counsellor. All parties will be consulted to agree and decide when the meeting should take place. Our counsellors are skilled in bringing people together and ensuring both sides have equal share of the time spent on them. Preparation for the meeting will be requested before the first session.
We aim to ensure that every client feels safe in the knowledge that they have found a professional couple counselling organisation that understands the challenges and concerns they face when they decide to seek assistance to resolve relationships issues.

"Florence has helped us to achieve so many things. We found a way to repair our damaged relationship, deal with what felt like insurmountable work problems and eventual redundancy and unpick and move on from painful emotions left over from the past. When we first thought about counselling, my husband was resistant and I was dubious. But Florence is so good at explaining and tackling complex, emotional issues in a practical and down to earth way, that we have completely changed our minds and would recommend her to anyone who wants help to sort out their problems."
