Psychological healthcare services delivered by compassionate, personable and professional practitioners.

Difficulties in families can sometimes feel impossible to resolve. It may have been that there is a breakdown in communication, that a conflict cannot be resolved, or that dynamics in families are causing emotion and psychological distress to one or more members. Whether there is a problem between parents and their children (infant, adolescent or adult), or between siblings, or between two partners as to how to resolve a dispute with their immediate or wider family, Psychology Sussex are here to help. 

We have psychologists who have systemic training – that is, that looks at systems, as well as patterns in relating and communicating with one another. The process of family therapy can be an opportunity to resolve conflict with an impartial third party – a therapist – and can be helpful to facilitate the expression of difficult thoughts and emotions in a safe environment. This process can ultimately lead to the resolution of conflicts as well as enabling family members to better resolve their difficulties beyond therapy. Whether you attend on your own or with others, the consultation of an experienced system psychologist can ultimately support recovery and enable to move on with a fulfilling relationships.   

Many of the difficulties that family therapy or psychological therapy with a system psychologist can help with are listed below, although this list is by no means comprehensive: 

  • Relationship difficulties – in couples or with others
  • Parenting struggles
  • Supporting an infant, adolescent or adult child who is experiencing psychological or emotional difficulties
  • Coming to terms with illness or disability
  • Divorce and parental seperation
  • Fostering 
  • Complex family dynamics
  • Issues where emotional, psychological, physical or sexual risk may be involved 
  • Adoption & fostering
  • Significant life changes

Whatever it is that you or your family member may be experiencing, do not hesitate to make contact with the team at Psychology Sussex to discuss how it is that we can help.
