Family therapists

Life crises and the way they impact mean different things to different people.
A life crisis might mean parents needing advice and support in their role, teenager problems, or a crisis because you or someone close to you is suffering from mental health problems.
Family therapists can provide families with advice and support, {MQ}including advice on how to handle various situations in life and support for your day-to-day life.

Parents can contact the family therapists on the parental support helpline 0248-70373 (Mondays and Wednesdays, 8.30 am–10 am) and also on the Social Services contact line 0248-70220.
You can have five conversations with a family therapist before a social worker must undertake a needs assessment.
Longer-term help may also be available; to access this you will need to see a social worker.

Social Services
