Intergenerational Conflict – Leonie Sanders

Leonie Sanders       Quals: Dip Mgt, B Psych (Hons), M Org Psych, MAPS

Intergenerational Conflict: For the past 100 years, each new generation has been christened with a title to denote their place in history. Each generation is shaped by the influence of their parents and families and the events and trends occurring around them. Intergenerational conflict today can be found in how middle aged adults balance the needs of caring for their children on the one hand and their ageing parents on the other. Even within the generation conflict occurs when it is perceived that there is an unfair sharing of responsibilities by siblings for ageing parents followed by settlement issues with deceased estates.

Counselling Approach: Leonie uses a combination of Family Systems Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to develop an approach suited to her client’s individual needs. Within this framework, she remains solution-focussed, and works collaboratively with individuals to achieve the desired outcomes.

Couples Therapy – Leonie Sanders

Leonie Sanders       Quals: Dip Mgt, B Psych (Hons), M Org Psych, MAPS

Couples Therapy: When two people join together from two different family cultures, creating a new family culture, difficulties are bound to occur! Different family cultures have different implied family values, but when these values are not made explicit, conflict can arise. Bringing unaddressed family of origin issues into a relationship can create problems that are often confusing and overwhelming to both partners. In order to fully understand the behaviours we exhibit in our adult relationships, we must first become familiar with why we developed those behaviours in our childhood.
