About Family Psychology Solutions


Here at Family Psychology Solutions we specialise in services for families and children, and the people who work with them. We recognise that “family” means different things to different people. We work with couples, separated families, step-families, same-sex parents, children and adults estranged or alienated from family members, adoptive families and children who are looked after. We all have family relationships – and we know how complex and difficult these can often be. Our main focus is on strained relationships and relationship breakdown. The effects of complex relationship issues such as conflict, hostility, breach of trust, infidelity, violence, alienation, poor communication or estrangement can have far reaching effects. Mental health, emotional well-being, social functioning and the ability to maintain healthy relationships can all be affected.

At Family Psychology Solutions, we are committed to developing and offering appropriate and affordable therapeutic interventions for families.

• “Really useful and interesting workshop. I had no concept of parental alienation before, so this has really opened my eyes.”
• “I really enjoyed this session – I have taken a lot away about the process of parental alienation and how it impacts on the different parties.”

At Family Psychology Solutions we also recognise that many professionals and organisations who work with families experiencing complex difficulties benefit from support from time to time. Our professional services are aimed at those who routinely work with, and develop policy and services for, children and families in conflict. Interactive, responsive training is designed to meet the needs of legal professionals, mental health practitioners, family workers and those who work in social care and education. We offer consultation on individual cases and in developing appropriate, responsive, inclusive policy and practice. We deliver our training and consultancy services throughout the country.
