Welcome to The Family Workshop. . .

All of us may experience difficult times when important relationships feel stuck, sad, or even destructive. We may be concerned by our own feelings or behaviour, or those of people close to us.

Many people find Family Therapy and relationship counselling helps them better understand and improve their relationships and their lives.

Who we are and what we do

The Family Workshop is an independent service provided by experienced and accredited Family and Systemic Psychotherapists, offering family therapy, couple and relationship counselling and other services to families, couples, individual adults, parents, children and young people. 

The Family Workshop also provides training and consultation to professionals working with couples, families, children and young people.

We are based in Lewes East Sussex, and will meet with clients at other venues if required. We take referrals from GPs, schools, other professionals and services and self-referrals. Our clients come from East Sussex, West Sussex, Brighton and Hove, London and beyond.

Areas where many people have found systemic and family psychotherapy useful include:

  • Family communication 
  • Couple relationship difficulties
  • Child and adolescent behaviour
  • Anxiety and other mood difficulties
  • Parenting issues
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Supporting family members through parental separation and divorce
