Family Services UK is a mental health charity based in Deptford. We specialise in providing low cost access to a counsellor in our Deptford centre, in libraries, schools, and on walks and trips.
The strength of Family Services UK is our ability to offer a range of interventions to support Individuals, Parents and Families all under one roof, including:
• 1-2-1 therapy
• 1-2-1 mentoring
• Family support
• Parent group interventions
• External social activities for individuals and families
Individual interventions are aimed to improve psychological wellbeing, reduce family dysfunctions, help clients to rebuild their lives and capture their balanced thinking and feeling.
Family interventions work with the family. Using systemic thinking, we help clients to reconnect to their family and society, improving their psychosocial wellbeing and family stability.
Parental interventions help develop flexible thinking, aiding parents to find solutions to their parenting difficulties leading to increased enjoyment of parenting.
This means that there is less need for clients to be passed on from one organisation to another, as when a client is referred to us, there are many intervention options available. Suitable interventions are identified through an assessment and discussions with the client. We monitor our clients closely and keep track of their progress and tailor services to their need.
Types of therapy provided include:
• Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
• Integrative therapy
• Psychoanalytical therapy
• Systemic therapy interventions
A range of therapy contracts are available depending on type of therapy being used and the client's presenting problem. Typically contracts range from 6-48 weeks, however we do offer open ended therapy dependant on need. Clients progress is monitored throughout therapy with the results being discussed with the client to identify which areas to address.
