Family Therapy

What is Family Therapy?

Family therapy or counselling occurs when a therapist works with a family to nurture change in how the family functions, and emphasizes the importance of good relationships within families to keep them happy and healthy. A therapist acts as the guide to help family members improve their communication skills, resolve conflict, better understand other family members and learn how to support each other during stressful times.This type of therapy could involve all members of the family, or only those willing to participate. Family therapy can be a useful tool to work through issues in a group setting with the support of a therapist.
