Filial Therapy
Building Bonds

Welcome to Wonderful Mind, where we provide a nurturing space for your family to thrive. Dive into the transforming journey of filial therapy, a therapeutic process designed to enhance family relationships and communication.

Linking Family Threads
Filial Family Therapy

Our filial family therapy services, structured around engaging activities, aim to bolster parent-child relationships and familial understanding. Rooted in play therapy principles, our sessions equip parents or caregivers with skills to understand their child's emotional world. The very essence of filial family therapy lies in fostering strong familial bonds and enhancing individual growth within the family structure.

Wonderful Mind offers group filial therapy services, converging multiple families in an empathetic environment. Our group sessions cultivate mutual support, and shared experiences, and enhance parent-child understanding. The group dynamic encourages social skills and allows parents to learn from the experiences of others, further diversifying their understanding and approach toward their children.

The Purpose of Filial Therapy

The main aim of filial therapy is to strengthen the bond between parents and their child. It helps parents better understand their child's feelings and thoughts, enhances their ability to respond effectively to their child's needs, and develops a more supportive and empathic parent-child relationship.



Filial Therapy vs Play Therapy

Delving into Differences


While both filial therapy and play therapy utilise play-based activities for therapeutic purposes, the primary difference lies in the identity of the therapeutic agent. In play therapy, a professional therapist interacts directly with the child. Conversely, in filial therapy, parents or caregivers are guided and trained to step into the role of the therapeutic agent, fostering a direct impact on the parent-child relationship.
