Couples and family therapy

Joan Holt MSc Family therapy,AFT accredited, UKCP supervisor

Couples and family therapy helps couples and families to manage emotional and communication difficulties associated with loss, trauma, family disruption, neurological problems and ill health, including mental health. 

The main focus of our work is with relationships, so whether you come on your own, with a partner or with your whole family our aim is to facilitate communication between you and improve understanding of each other’s positions. We take ‘family’ to describe any group of people who define themselves as such and are happy to work with whoever you identify as important to you.

We aim to provide a calm space where differing thoughts and feelings can be safely explored. We believe that people can gain strength through change alongside others and that our job as a therapist is to support and assist that change.
