Psychotherapy-Counseling for Families

Family therapy is a form of psychotherapy and aims to address difficulties that arise within the family system, to improve the functioning of the family as a group, but also to maintain the mental health of each member individually. For this reason, all family members participate. What is particularly important in family therapy is how individual characteristics and behaviors relate to the context in which they arise. During the sessions, the ways of conciliation, the rules of the family are examined, direct communication between members and the expression of emotions are encouraged. At the same time, the positive aspects of family life are identified in order to be used for the purpose of normalizing difficulties and conflicts. In family therapy, the goal is to rebuild the family. A key element is the redefinition of dysfunctional modes of “relationship” and the adoption and use of new, alternative and healthier forms of interaction.

Relationship difficulties between siblings or between children and parents are common, but when they lead to a rupture in the heart of the family, it may be useful to consult. Therapy can also be useful in the event of parental separation or in overcoming illness or the loss of a loved one.

Family therapy puts all these members in interaction with the therapist who can then point out the differences in communication and suggest avenues for work. Deeper elements can also emerge in one-on-one sessions before being brought up in the family.
