Every family has their fair share of ups and downs. Sometimes, families do go through a crisis and can encounter problems that can weaken family unity. If your family is undergoing a tough time, be it a very stressful period, grief, anger, a misunderstanding, issues with communication, or unresolved conflict, coming for family counselling can be beneficial.
Problems within the family can impact upon all family members as well as different areas of functioning. One of more family members may report experiencing difficulties at school, work or during social interactions with others.
If you feel like the challenges that you’re facing within your family are getting too overwhelming, seeking family counselling can help you explore ways to manage the various problems and conflicts. Family counselling is a form of psychotherapeutic intervention that is intended to assist in addressing problems that impact upon the functioning and health of a family unit. Family counselling is not limited for blood relatives of a family unit alone but is open to any individual to plays a supportive and vital role for the family.
Family counselling can also help to enhance and open channels of communication, strengthen bonds, build self-esteem, and assist in divorce proceedings or pre-marital counselling to prepare for marriage.
