Is your relationship under strain?
Are you and your relatives constantly bickering or arguing without resolution? Maybe your communication has completely broken down?
Family therapy focuses on relationships between people, helping families to help each other. Family relationships are an important part of your psychological health. The family often serves as the platform you take your identity from, and can be your main support. It can also, however, be your main source of anxiety, misunderstanding, and upset.
How can family therapy help?
Family therapy helps to identify the negative interactions or cycles that can start to emerge within family systems, and to de-escalate these, and then rebuild positive cycles of interaction, so that the family can become stronger and more cohesive; and turn towards each other again, instead of away from each other. You don’t have to be experiencing great difficulties to attend family therapy. It’s also very useful as a check-in to keep your relationships on track.
