Relationships & Family Therapy

 

In addition Caraniche can facilitate cognitive and psychological assessments for children and adolescents to assess intellectual functioning, academic strengths and weaknesses and learning styles.

Family Therapy recognises that problems that impact upon an individual may also affect a partner, children, siblings, or the extended family. Furthermore, the causes of such problems may lie in how the family is communicating.  In these instances it can be helpful to bring the whole or part of the family together as part of the counselling process.

 

Family therapy may also assist in improving communication during times of transition, 'blending' families, or following a traumatic or other significant event.
