Families

Therapy & Coaching

Family work is an integral part of Strengthening Families Australia.

Our work with families is informed by family systems theory, attachment and social cognitive theory and comes in 2 forms:

  • Family Therapy
  • Family Coaching

Family Therapy

Family Therapy also known as Family and Systemic Psychotherapy helps people in close relationships help each other. We support and enable family members, couples and others who care about each other to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely to understand each other’s experiences and views, and appreciate each other’s needs.

We hold the belief that all any of us really want in this life is to feel love and be loved, to be heard and to be known, loved and understood for who we truly are.

Family therapy aims to:

Throughout this process you can expect to experience genuine care, heartfelt respect, emotional presence and the powerful experience of being heard, understood and loved.

Family Coaching

Family Coaching is a collaborative process where one, more or all members of a family partners with us to address goals that will ultimately improve their family dynamics. Family dynamics are the interactions between family members, how they relate to one another and how the family functions as a whole. Through coaching we can help you devise a workable plan to begin to have the family life you want and to achieve the goals that you set for yourself and your family.

Family coaching is offered to families who:

Family coaching focuses on clearly defined goals, facilitates each family member’s thinking and needs and delivers opportunities for ideas and options, and guides action towards the goals.

We work on leveraging the strengths of individuals and groups as well as exploring what is keeping people stuck.

Coaching Package

Each coaching package is tailored to the needs of each individual family and includes:

Packages range from 3, 6 and 12 months depending on the needs of each individual family.

To apply for family coaching with Lisa:

"Fundamentally, we serve people to discover their truth, know their worth and build the skills to create a greater connection to themselves and others."
"Lisa is a wise, thoughtful, kind and effective family therapist. I’ve had help from her a few times over the last 2 years as we’ve worked through some challenges with my kids and then also my adult siblings. Lisa’s gentle questions and wise words have given me and my family strategies to lower our stress and anxiety, and to provide guidance through difficult conversations. This has helped our family to function more smoothly, and me personally to feel more aligned with my own roles in my immediate family and extended. Working with Lisa is fantastic!"
