Family counseling



Family counseling is part of our social work. Family counseling offers pastoral and therapeutic support for problems related to relationships and the family. It is offered to individual people, couples, and other family members. We offer family counseling service for immigrants and foreigners as well. We have resources to have meetings in Finnish and in English. If you speak some other language and need an interpreter to help with the discussion with family counselor, you need to bring the interpreter with you, because we do not have resources for having our own interpreters.
