Blended Family Therapy


Combining families and creating blended families can come with a unique set of challenges. The emotional complexities of children, parents and family can state the need for family therapy, blended family therapy, or stepfamily therapy. Children on both sides of the marriage are forced to work hard to adapt to the new authority figure, something that often creates tension. It is in these types of situations that our therapists with expertise in blended families can help.

Is Blended Family Counselling Right For Your Family?


It can be difficult to know if you’re in need of counselling if you’re currently n the process of blending families with your partner. There can be a wide range of conflicts or issues that may lead you or your partner to believe seeking professional blended family counselling could be beneficial for your family in the long run.

Having difficulty agreeing on parenting styles, or being worried about creating an inconsistent environment for your children are just two of the hundreds of different issues you may be experiencing. Conversely, children may be used to parenting styles present in their previous environment.

Capital Choice Counselling is here to help make the transition a smooth process for all family members. Contact us today if you’re in search of family therapy for blended families.

  • I have attended, with great interest, many Relationships Matter Seminars at St Paul University. The topics are beneficial to everyone who want a better understanding of oneself and relationships. I always come out at the end of the evening with better knowledge and good feelings. Many thanks to the speakers — great presentations!

  • The seminar I attended was very interesting. The host is very good speaker, he knows what he is talking about and definitely has knowledges to share. I like that it is accessible and entertaining: my boyfriend enjoyed it too, and I believed that it’s partially because of the fact it was funny and instructive.

  • Relationship Matters offer great speakers on a variety of related topics from online dating to being in long term intimate relationships. They are thought provoking and accessible to the lay person and for anyone with a desire to broaden their perspectives on and possibly improve the quality of their relationships. I am really happy to have discovered this series put on by Martin Rovers, an expert in the field.
