At some point in your life, you may be faced with a problem that you don’t know how to solve. Up to this point, you’ve probably dealt with issues on your own or with the help of those close to you. Has anyone ever told you that it’s OK to ask for help?
At The Family Centre, we can help. We may not have all the answers, but our therapists and counsellors can help you understand your situation better and figure out ways to move successfully through it. We have experience in a broad range of issues and our therapists and counsellors are all trained in helping people get through trauma. We focus on the future rather than dwelling on the past.
With a little support, you will build awareness, understanding, knowledge, skills, and perspectives to raise healthy children, build strong relationships, heal from trauma, and navigate through change. Going to therapy or counselling is a big step, and booking a session for the first time is often the most difficult part. Often, one session may be enough to help you think more clearly and work through your own solution when you are stuck.
