Why Try Family Counselling?
Anyone who has been a part of a family knows that it can be one of the most rewarding experiences in life… and also the most stressful! Sometimes issues that come up in families are too much to handle alone. Counselling offers a safe, confidential space for you to sort out problems that you and your family can’t handle by yourself. By taking the time to learn how and why issues are emerging, and how to communicate about them, you can find peace and unity that lasts.
Vern and Calista have experience helping a number of family related concerns. This is not just book knowledge – with 7 kids (5 biological, 2 adopted) they’ve seen it all! Here are some common concerns that couples come to counselling with:
Parenting – Communication – Abuse – Body Issues – Disordered Eating – Addictions (drugs, alcohol, technology) – Addictive Behaviours (sex, eating, pornography, work) – Grief and Loss – Bullying – Stress – Gender Identity Concerns
