Adult clients often bring sibling difficulties, both current and past. A major change such as a death or a new relationship can act as a flashpoint. Old grudges, rivalries and losses may be re-ignited. Different family constellations – step, half, blended, no siblings, ill or dead siblings – all have their own dynamics and troubles. You can also see earlier sibling experiences being re-enacted in work relationships and supervision groups.

We will consider strategies for helping adult clients who:

  • Want to know why there are difficulties and what to do about them
  • Want to make changes in themselves or others
  • Feel stuck
  • Want permission to stop trying to resolve family difficulties
