Family Face Time

Family Face Time is NOT therapy or mediation but aims to provide families with an opportunity to have a facilitated conversation in a safe way. This ensures that all voices are heard and issues that might otherwise have not been addressed are debated fully.  Typically families work on issues affecting day to day living at home (chores, family rules and general behaviour).
