Soul Surgery’s philosophy on family therapy, based on clinical research, is that it offers a way to develop or maintain a healthy, functional family. Family involvement is necessary to address family pain and heal a family’s wounds. Because so much of our environment is influenced by our family, it’s vital that we address wounds – even if they are old. Family therapy is essential for families who would like to retain or regain a sense of wholeness and happiness.
Soul Surgery utilizes a holistic approach to treating problems within a family which has been proven to be extremely effective. In family therapy, families can work on their problems with the guidance of a mental health professional in a safe and controlled environment.
