What defines a Family?

There is no one definition of family and at Kids First we welcome them all.

Who can come to Family Therapy?

The whole family! Whether it be individually or as a group, everybody is welcome. Your therapist may want to see all members of your family together or work with family members separately. What Family Therapy looks like is different for every family.

How will you know if Family Therapy is right for you?

We will discuss how family therapy can support you and your family. A session can be arranged between you and a family therapist to better understand if Family Therapy is right for you.

If you decide that Family Therapy is the right fit for you we will have a discussion about who should attend. The first appointment will be a Family Consultation, when everyone can talk about their strengths and worries in the family, and plan what their next steps will be.
