Twin therapists have a special knowledge of twins and multiples of all types and their relationship with each other, their siblings and their parents which can be helpful to parents of twins and more who may find that others do not understand the difficulties they are experiencing with their twins and more.

This can be invaluable to parents who are struggling with bringing up twins and need to talk to someone who has the kowledge and experience they need in coping with the demands of, say, toddler twins whether it be sleep or toilet training or fighting over toys. Parents often expect twins to be less trouble - after all they have a ready made playmate - but then have forgotten the effect that it will have on the older sibling who finds him or herself having to take a back seat. Or maybe it's the twins who become jealous of a sinlgle brother or sister who seems to get all the attention, or a single triplet who has identical brothers or sisters. Problems can be varied and unexpected and need an expert to provide help. However it may often be adult twins who find they are trying to work through difficulties in their relationship with each other. These often have their roots in childhood and twins may need the outside help of a Twin Therapist to sort these out.
