Parents with school and teenage children need to be able to tackle problems as a family as they experience bumps in the road. Often just one family session under the guidance of a therapist can bring resolution, helping the family work well as a team. These sessions are an opportunity for all voices to be heard, decisions to be made, and to get the family back on track.
"The mornings were absolute chaos. At our family meeting we learned how to break down the problem, hear what everyone needed and make changes together. Just one session helped us so much!"
