Our hearts and email boxes are always open to family members
Although our area of expertise is helping mothers, we understand that fathers and other family members may also be impacted by emotional overwhelm. Though perhaps differently, they too suffer from the challenges arising in a family where one or more family members are struggling with longterm challenging conditions.
Often, family members may also suffer from depression, anxiety or addictive and obsessive thoughts and behaviours. This is not unusual and is scientifically described as vicarious trauma. Over time we mirror our loved ones' conditions and become enmeshed in their suffering .
People are often not aware of this phenomenon, especially in situations taking place in the privacy and isolation of a home.
Therefore, we are open to any enquiries which may lead to group or individual work for fathers, siblings or other family members.
Please feel free to contact us if you are affected by a condition of your loved one.
