Hargan Psychology

Imagine a vibrant garden teeming with life. Sunlight pours through the leaves, nourishing different plants in their unique ways. The breeze gushing through the crevices of the trees carried on the wings of butterflies. This is a healthy family ecosystem where members thrive in balance, nurtured by communication, support, and respect.

But like any ecosystem, families can face storms. Disagreements between parents and children, hormonal changes, academic struggles, miscommunication, and the ever-present pull of technology can disrupt the delicate equilibrium. Distance due to work commitments, concerning behaviours, and even substance abuse can further strain the bonds that hold families together.

When the family ecosystem falters, its members may feel lost, isolated, and unsure of how to restore harmony.

This is where Hargan Psychology’s Family Services step in.

We believe that every family holds the potential for renewal. Our experienced psychologists provide family counselling services like skilled gardeners, carefully assessing the family dynamic and identifying areas where growth is needed. We guide each family member through their individual roles in this process, fostering understanding, empathy, and open communication.

family therapy services

Our Family Support Services for family counselling encompass a holistic approach, offering:

  • Family Therapy: We create a safe space for families to express their concerns, navigate conflicts, and build stronger relationships. Our therapists utilise evidence-based approaches like Family Systems Therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to address specific challenges and cultivate healthier communication patterns.
  • Family Counselling Services: Sometimes, individual support for family members can be crucial in strengthening the overall dynamic. We offer individual counselling for parents, children, and adolescents, addressing issues like anxiety, depression, and behavioural difficulties as a way to better approach family counselling.
  • Parent Coaching: We empower parents with effective communication and discipline strategies, fostering positive relationships with their children.
  • Educational Resources: We provide families with valuable information and resources on topics like child development, healthy family dynamics, and managing common challenges.

 

Ultimately, our goal is to help families rediscover their natural balance and rebuild their ecosystem of love and respect through our Family Support Services. We believe that with the right support and guidance, every family can weather the storms and flourish.

Here are some of the ways Hargan Psychology can help your family:

  • Improve communication: Learn tools for expressing yourselves openly and honestly, fostering active listening and mutual understanding.
  • Resolve conflicts: Develop healthy conflict resolution skills to navigate disagreements without blame or resentment.
  • Set boundaries: Establish clear and consistent boundaries for each family member, promoting respect and individual growth.
  • Strengthen relationships: Rebuild trust and connection within the family unit, creating a supportive and nurturing environment.

B.E.S.T Parents
(For Parent of Kids & Teens)

We understand working with children can be both rewarding and test your patience.

Parents are not given a book when they leave the hospital with a solution to every problem. Society expects parents to be patient, caring , loving and nurturing, which is perhaps possible in a world where parents don’t have anything else to worry about in their busy lives.

Our BEST Parents program aims to provide parents with tools to add to their ever growing parenting ‘toolbox’  to assist when faced with challenging situations or behaviours parents may face with their young people.

Single Parenting

Becoming a single parent, either by circumstance or by choice, can be one of the most stressful life events.

No matter what your story, it is important to remember that all parents need support at some point on their journey, regardless of their circumstances or relationship status. Getting help is a sign of strength, not weakness, and it gives you the best chance of being the parent you want to be. By helping yourself you also help your children.

If you are needing help to get back on track, reduce overwhelming feelings, feel more connected to your family, or even if you just need a place to vent about all things single parent, therapy can be a great resource. Having a warm, friendly and safe place to chat about your concerns from a solution focused perspective can be one the most empowering things you can do to propel yourself and your family forward. It allows you to process, learn, heal and grow so that happiness can be yours for the taking!

Family Report

Following separation or divorce, many families seek assistance of the Courts in settling child access and custody issues. You may have been directed by the Court (Federal Circuit Court) to attend psychological services for an assessment, or may have been advised by your legal counsel to obtain a Family Court Report.

Our role is to conduct an assessment and provide a written report to the Courts about your family, advise the Courts about recommendations for access and or custody, and to provide the Court with information about the services provided to families by government, community and other agencies.
