Private Family Therapy in Birmingham

Home > Private Mental Health Clinics in Birmingham and London > Private Family Therapy in Birmingham

While many families have some level of resiliency, the stresses of everyday life can put pressure on parents, children and adolescents. Every family may experience periods of disharmony and feel a need for help that goes beyond their own resources. 

The good news is that we provide effective family therapy in Birmingham, helping you and your loved ones access professional mental health services. Our highly trained family therapists will provide your family with a comfortable space to discuss any troubles, allowing you to build harmony and navigate through life’s ups and downs as a collective. 

What is Family Therapy?

As the name suggests, family therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on improving relationship patterns and communication among family members. It can involve any combination of family members and help treat specific mental health or behavioural challenges, such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety and ADHD.

Benefits of Family Therapy

Family therapy can help parents, carers, children and other family members on many different levels. The main benefits of family therapy include:

  • Improved communication: By bringing all the members of your family together, our therapists can help you understand the complex dynamics of your family. We will work with you to develop more effective ways of communicating and create more harmonious relationships
  • Long-lasting outcomes: Our family therapists do more than just address the symptoms of mental health challenges. We excel at getting to the root of a range of issues, providing your family with long-lasting results
  • Healthy boundaries established: Generally, family conflict arises from a lack of boundaries. We will help you set clear and healthy boundaries based on your needs and provide you with the tools to make sure you do not overstep other’s boundaries either
  • A holistic approach to mental health: Family therapy does not just take into account individual symptoms. Our therapists take a holistic approach, considering the context and environment you are in. This allows family members to achieve collaborative solutions

Our Family Care Services

Midland Health provides family therapy in Birmingham, helping parents, carers, children and young people work through serious issues such as depression and eating disorders or simply improve the harmony and communication within their family.

Our specialists use a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including CBT and counselling. We will work with you to develop strategies to change your negative thought patterns and behaviours and improve the mental health and overall well-being of your family. With the right tools under your belt, it will be much easier to resolve conflicts and build strong bonds.

How Does Family Therapy Work?

Our qualified family therapists work with a combination of family members to identify and change unhelpful patterns of communication and behaviour. Generally, this involves bringing all the family members together in a series of therapy sessions as opposed to just one patient and the therapist. 

Every family member will be given the opportunity to voice their emotions and feelings and the therapist will provide strategies to improve the quality of communication and relationships.

Our Areas of Expertise

At our Birmingham family therapy clinic, we provide a number of mental health services for families, including:

Paediatric Therapy

If your child is struggling with their mental health, it can be difficult to see them suffer as a parent. Thankfully, we provide private child psychotherapy sessions at short notice with no long waiting lists, allowing your child to get the help they deserve.

Family Counselling

For many people, their families are a source of support, love and encouragement; for others, their familial bonds can take a toll on their emotional well-being. Whether your children are not getting on, you are going through a separation or divorce or one of your family members is struggling with a mental health condition, we will help you weather the storm and come out the other side stronger than ever.
