Introduction to Family Therapy

Family therapy, also known as family counseling, is a form of psychotherapy that helps family members improve communication, resolve conflicts, and strengthen their relationships. Andrew Hey offers a supportive and empathetic environment where families can work together to overcome challenges and build a healthier, more harmonious family dynamic.

How Family Therapy Works

Family therapy sessions with Andrew are designed to address the specific needs and concerns of your family. The process begins with an initial assessment, where Andrew gathers information about your family’s history, current issues, and goals for therapy. This helps him develop a tailored approach that best supports your family's unique dynamics.

Andrew utilizes a variety of therapeutic techniques in family therapy, including:

  • Family Systems Therapy: Understanding how each family member's behavior affects the entire family and working to improve the overall functioning of the family unit.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): Identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors within the family.

  • Structural Family Therapy: Helping families restructure their interactions to create healthier boundaries and improve relationships.

  • Communication Skills Training: Teaching effective communication techniques to enhance understanding and reduce conflict among family members.

Sessions are interactive and collaborative, encouraging all family members to participate and share their perspectives. Whether you prefer in-person sessions or online therapy, Andrew provides a flexible and accommodating approach to meet your family's needs.
