Family counselling

In the Vantaa Parish Union, there is a special office for families who need guidance and help with relationships inside the family. Problems can concern the relationship between partners or between children and parents. You can visit us alone or come with your partner or other family member.

Our services are always confidential and they are meant for people who live in Vantaa. Often the conversation with a professional worker helps you ahead. All of our workers have special education for family guidance issues.

It is important to notice that we have limited resources in English, so if you need guidance in English please contact us beforehand with e-mail.


Participate in special groups and courses

We organise special groups and courses twice a year. More information about these groups is found in this space when groups are starting.

Groupmeetings have usually the following themes:

  • relationship group with the idea of preventing problems before they appear
  • groups for special concentration on children issues
  • divorce groups for those who have recently divorced
