Service Description

Different cultures and different groups of individuals have very different notions of what ‘family’ means. Family Therapists work in ways that acknowledge the contexts of people’s families and other relationships, sharing and respecting individuals’ different perspectives, beliefs, views and stories and exploring possible ways forward.

The Family Therapy Service works with couples and/or families, including significantly involved members who may not live together, where a family member has a mental health diagnosis such as:

  • Severe recurrent depression or anxiety with self-harm or other complex mental health issues
  • Bi-polar affective disorder
  • Psychosis
  • Complex personality disorder
  • Addiction (e.g. alcoholism, drug misuse)
  • Eating disorders

and are experiencing major relationship difficulties in couple, family or other relationship contexts.

    Referral Criteria

    To meet our criteria for assessment and treatment, the person needs to have a mental health problem as well as be experiencing relationship difficulties. Any mental health professional involved in the care and treatment of the individual can refer to us. However, people cannot self-refer and we do not accept referrals from GP surgeries.
