Family & Couples Therapy
Family & Couples therapy help family members understand each other and work through difficult feelings in a safe space. Family therapy focuses on improving the interactions and communication between family members. It is usually used when the family is contributing to a person’s difficulties or when one person’s problems are impacting other family members.
Ideally, if in a couple, you want to find a therapist when there isn’t a real crisis as couples therapy can also be a proactive tool to help couples learn to communicate effectively early in the relationship and prevent major issues in the future.
About 72% of families had good outcomes following family therapy. Family or couples therapy is also effective for drug abuse and eating disorders and gives superior results compared with such non-family approaches as individual counselling and peer group therapy.
Family & Couples therapy can help with a variety of relationship concerns, including:
- Communication problems
- Conflict resolution
- Parenting or family problems
- Sexual problems
- Job loss & financial hardship
- Mental illness
- Drug & alcohol abuse
- Eating disorders
When each person feels supported and works within their strengths, positive changes in relationships and in people’s lives will hopefully result. Through couples therapy, couples can address those “small” issues in a constructive manner, learn how to soothe each other, discuss and hear each other’s fears, cultivate a deeper sense of respect and love for each other, and so much more.
