Lakeside Rooms practitioners offer evidence based services for families these include:

  • General parenting advice
  • Parenting after separation
  • Parent Child Interaction / Relationship difficulties


The different schools of family therapy have in common a belief that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an “individual” or “family” issue, involving families in solutions often benefits clients. This involvement of families is commonly accomplished by their direct participation in the therapy session. The skills of the family therapist thus include the ability to influence conversations in a way that catalyses the strengths, wisdom, and support of the wider system.


Ian Platt, Andrew Harris and Erinn Hawkins all offer family therapy.
