Family Counseling

 

Families can be a source of support, encouragement and love but sometimes relationships within families are put under strain and family members feel isolated or overlooked. There are various reasons for family counseling such as (a) disruption after separation or divorce (b) debt (c) problems with adolescents or older children (d) children leaving home…..
Counselors can help members relate to each other’s feelings and then work out the differences giving every family member a voice and an opportunity to be heard without fear or favor. The counselor can meet the family together and different members separately too. Since the family is a system, change is best facilitated by working with the family as a whole. Neither the individual nor the family is blamed for any problem. Families are helped to recognize factors that contribute to a given problem. They can then jointly participate in finding solutions. Counseling is a different experience for everyone, and what happens in your sessions will depend very much on what you hope to get out of it, and on the unique needs of your family. You can expect Family Counseling to help you to build stronger relationships between every member of the family and help you to work together as a team.
