Family Counselling with Julia Yearwood provides a safe space to explore the dynamics of the family unit and any issues which may be impacting all or some of the relationships within the family. The therapist will work with the family by encouraging each member to understand their needs and empathise with each other.
This helps the whole family to gain a deeper understanding of each other’s needs and aims to build on family strengths and make positive changes within the family unit.
Mentalisation is the ability to think about what we and others are thinking. This helps us to link thoughts, feelings and beliefs to actions and behaviours. MBT aims to improve the capacity to mentalise. It focuses on developing the ability to mentalise and think about what is going on in our mind and in the minds of others, make sense of and work through problem behaviours.
Who can it help?
This approach is for children, young people and whole families. It helps reinforce mentalising, develop communication skills and mutually supportive solutions to problems.
