I am not a family therapist, but I do like to work with the wider systems of where my clients feels a sense of belonging or feeling at home. Once the trust is developed in the therapeutic relationship if it is of benefit for the client, I do allow sessions where their original or logical family, partner(s), friends are able to attend, if this is useful for the client in terms of talking things through around choses around gender or sexuality, clear communication or dealing with conflict.
